    I would host somewhere else. ASO is my favorite https://asmallorange.com/ support can be slow sometimes.

    Namecheap is also good.


    GoDaddy has a lot of fee's and high prices.

    used to be good. Some trust I'd say. Now - probably not at all. But still better than some monkey registrars.

    Don't go with GD. What a terrible company.

    Namecheap is good.

    When it comes to domain and hosting I prefer not to use Godaddy. Right now, I am currently using Bluehost, support is great and I don't encounter any problem yet. I hope this link can help you choose which one is good for you:

    Use GoDaddy if you can get one of the dirt cheap .com deals, but host elsewhere.
    Then after year 1 move from GoDaddy to a better registrar.

    If from the outset you're wanting privacy, go to Namesilo, free privacy for life.

    Usually, I register and host my websites at different places.
    Also, I stay away from GoDaddy. Terrible company.

    GoDaddy is ok, but I can always suggest Hosttripples or Hostgator.

    For domain, I prefer buying from whoever has a promotion.

    Hosting, don't go for GoDaddy. Terrible, terrible, terrible service. Takes forever to fix if something's wrong and the website always ends up slow.

    I came across ecowebhosting a couple months back through a course I bought at Udemy. It covers 1 year of free hosting from EWH. I believe it's about $30 for the course itself.

    I use GoDaddy as my domain registrar but I don't host my domains there. I use HostGator for hosting purposes. I will never use one company as my domain registrar and host at the same time.

    As per to me it is good because I am using two domains and hosting from GoDaddy. So far I didn't had any troubles from them.

    Hello,

    I always separated the domain and hosting. To then be able to move around more easily.

    The truth is, if you are just starting out, and you are running a white-labeled website, it doesn't matter so much where you host. It's not going to differ too much. What's more important is that you make regular backups of your website, because you're going to fuck up, and if you don't have that backup, you gotta start all over. Personal experience.

    Exactly.
    Op keep your domain and hosting separate - if you ever need to move to another host for any reason it's much easier with separate registrar because you can just change name servers and point to new host.
    Also if your host goes down its still possible to move away from them whereas if you host goes down and they have your domain as well it can be much harder to take control.
