Hosting and Domain registration

Hosting your site on a "paid server" has benefits over hosting it on a free server as the free servers tend to restrict your bandwidth and disc space.
With a paid server you can upgrade your account if required and can use languages like asp, pearl & php and have more options on how to run your site.
Obviously you have to pay for your hosting but you can get good deals on packages now.

Registering you domain name means deciding on a web address and paying for it.
This means no one else can have the same name as you and there are a lot of choices of tld e.g. .co.uk .com and they all cost different amounts.

This site is on a paid server and I have registered the domain name's of www.rubblewebs.net, www.rubblewebs.com, www.rubblewebs.net & www.rubblewebs.biz. Which ever address you type in you will be taken to the same site www.rubblewebs.net as the others are redirected here.
