    Hello,

    I am planning to buy an domain and host. But i'm a total noob with this. I want to learn seo and stuff. I ain't got a niche yet but I was wondering. Does the domain name really matter? Or not really?

    Also, what is a nice and cheap host to start with? Or does that really depends on what I want to do? ( I ain't got really a plan yet. )

    But since I don't know any php or other stuff either I think it's the best to just try.. Also wondering what is the easiest to start with? I got 200$ Budget to invest.

    Thanks in advance

    Yes. (Browse BHW and/or use the search function for more info)

    Some hosts provide free hosting that can be good to get you started. (I've seen a thread a few hours ago here on BHW mentioning zymic . com )

    Or you can look at hostgator or bluehost which are very popular hosts and offer very cheap hosting plans.

    Most hosts offer php and mysql for all of their hosting plans, also be aware that you don't need to know php stuffs to actually need php in your hosting.

    For instance, Wordpress (like all popular CMS) requires a php hosting, although you don't need to know anything about php to install ans use it.

    DOmain name is the most important.

    You can use google keyword tool to search. Remember check the "EXACT SEARCH" option.

    My host is from hotgator, and i pay 9.90$/month. It's cool :).

    200$ should be good. Pay host for one year ( about 99$ ), buy domain ( 11$/year), install wordpress and put an few plugins. You can also buy more domains to scale up :).

    Good luck,
    Cristian

    Thanks for the useful info. I'll do some searches and check some things out. Then I won't make a domain yet till I found a niche.
