    I have researched a two word keyword that searches abt 3k to 4k a month and less competitive one..
    keyword domain is already gone.
    I am thinking to buy a domain as "themykeyword.com"
    does this really ok?
    I have ideas to use adsense and clickbank product..
    Hosting i cant spend much every month..

    Kindly give ur opinions abt best registrar and hosting too..

    Best registrar, I'd say is name.com

    Is that 3k-4k exact searches per month or broad?

    Registrar doesn't matter THAT much. It's mostly about price (as long as you find a legit company). Godaddy, Namecheap...

    I would register the domain name with Namecheap.c0m since they give free private whois. As for hosting... Hostgator is the best in my opinion - fast, cheap and reliable

    I agree with the above post. Namcheap's free whois protection is awesome. Godaddy charges like $5-7 for that.

    name.com gives you free private whois as well and I find it a lot more user friendly then again just my opinion. :)

    I'd go with name.com if I need a private whois. But for domain tasting purposes, definitely go with godaddy. Their refund process is fast!

    I just hate GoDaddy. They keep spamming the inbox with recurring (no big deal) promotion almost every week!

    That's why I moved over my domains to Namecheap. And yeah, free private whois is something you should think and consider.

    I think you also need a CC in order to use Godaddy, so if you don't have one at reach, you're better off them. Use namecheap or name.com instead :)
