Update: Many Have asked so I’m adding this Price Comparison
OPTION 1 (recommended, we use it here): register godaddy domain for under $10. Then, get hostgator hosting. As you’ll see hostgator is much cheaper at 36 months, 12 months and 1 month with our coupon BigBonus. I use this combo of godaddy and hostgator and enjoy knowing how each one works separately. It’s nice because they both specialize in each respective component and I can easily move away from one place if I want later on.
OPTION 2: (more expensive, but you get to keep everything website related at godaddy): register godaddy domain and hosting at godaddy. The cheapest monthly hosting is $7.99/mo, or $4.99/mo for 12 months. It still works.
