Domain names etc

Recommended Posts

Hello

So I'm trying to turn my fancy french music blog into a proper actual website.

Do any of you have experience in getting domain names? Cheapest? best? I don't really know much about this.

Cheers

Your blog's hosted on tumblr, so it would be easy enough just to get a domain via the likes of 1&1 or 123reg as above, and point it to the existing blog address.

The alternative is to buy a domain with some hosting, and host the fucker yerself (which is what I do), but it depends what you want to do and if you see yourself doing anything else/more intensive with the webspace.

I'd probably recommend option 1 if you're just want to keep it as a straight blog.

If you import your current blog to wordpress you can pay about 10 a year to host it on an independent .com address. My ol' wordpress url

http://paragraphfilms.wordpress.com

now automatically redirects to this now

http://paragraphfilmreviews.com

They do all the switching and you can still update using the decent wordpress system! Piece of piss.
