First post, hope this is the right place for this question. I'm about to build my first website and I was looking for domain providers. Namecheap and Dreamhost are the ones I found to be fitting best for me. Criteria was: - private domain registration/whois protection - roughly $10 a year (including the privacy part) I'm going with byet.host for hosting, which is free. Also offers a website builder, which I consider using. (I'd get better hosting when (or if) traffic comes in.) I don't yet fully understand everything about the matter, so I'm kinda lost, now that I need to make my decision. Are there any (major) downsides to either one of these providers? Are there other providers that meet my criteria and are also known to be good? What else do I need to think of? (I'll sell digital goods (audio) from the site, if that matters.) Any features I need to look out for? (Not planning on really coding anything myself.) What would be your criteria when looking for domain providers? I just don't wanna be stuck with a bad provider or have to pay extra for moving my domain to another one. Any advice, tips, help is highly appreciated!
