[Web4lib] Buying a Domain

For domain name registration I've used both directnic.com and godaddy.com -
both are fine. I found the renewal interface to be easier for me on
directnic. I get reminders to renew early and often enough that I don't
accidentally drop the domain. : )

For web hosting, I've been very happy with DreamHost. They're reasonably
priced and have several "one-click installs" that are useful: wordpress,
drupal, photo gallery, mailing lists, unlimited databases, etc. They are on
a linux server, which is very reliable. Some of the interface is not really
intuitive, but their customer support is fantastic.

Hope this helps.

Subject: [Web4lib] Buying a Domain

Hello Everyone:

I am looking into purchasing a domain for one of our blogs, and I was
wondering if anyone had any experience doing the same for themselves or
their library?  There appear to be a lot of hosting/domain sites out there
and am just looking for something simple and cheap.
