Query for Best Domain Host: I am interested in creating a website to promote my work as a writer. I have never had a website before. Is it better to buy a domain name rather than use a free space like google provides or is a google site good for a beginner such as myself? Also any suggestions on where to obtain free or paid domains, and the best web hosting for 2016 would be appreciated.

Answer: It solely depends on your requirements and your budget. If it is just a simple hobby pr personal website and you do not need to look professional, I suggest you try either blogger.com or weebly.com. They have an easy user-interface that allow you to create your site easily even if you don’t have any web designing experience.

However, you should avoid the free services if you want to look professional and if you need a website for your writing portfolio or writing business. If your website needs a lot of space and needs database support, I suggest you get a cheap hosting plan. Some hosting packages includes free domain so you don’t need to worry about paying and configuring a domain name. If you want your own domain, you need to register your domain name either with your hosting service or a separate domain registrar. I suggest you go for Godaddy in terms of domain name registration. You can either host your domain name in godaddy or redirect it to your web host.

For a web host, we suggest you try Hostgator or InMotion Hosting.

Hostgator offers unlimited disk space storage, unlimited bandwidth, also comes with free Sitebuilder tool, Fantastico included, thousands of free templates to choose from, user-friendly cpanel, and most of all they have 45-day money back guarantee. You can try their hosting plan at $0.01 for the first month or get the 25% off at any plan. You can use the Hostgator coupons 2016 below to get the discounts:

Another hosting we like is InMotion hosting because we almost cannot find any negative InMotion hosting review on the web. They are that good.
