Default Domain name and hosting - godaddy.com

I did a search on HT.com and got some good info. Here is something I'm not too clear on.

A few people have said. "Don't get your domain name and host your site with the same company."

Why is that?

I was thinking of going with godaddy.com. No reason, just because they advertise well, and I don't know any better (newbie).

The cheapest package will include related "advertising" (not pop ups).

Any other comments before I sign up?

Does someone have an example of hosting by godaddy with advertising so I can see how it would look? Please post link.

I would hate to have those dating or viagra ads pop up.

TIA

I've heard, and agreed with, that it is because if you run into problems with the company it'll be difficult to extract, or get released, the domain name to someone of your liking.

For an example:

I had some problems with powweb and I demanded my money back. If they hosted domain names - they probably wouldn't have released my domain name until I was fully paid.

I think it's just a way to protect yourself.

I do all my domain names through godaddy.

tonyXcom has a nice deal for a good size hosting plan - or if you need a small hosting plan I have one as well.

Hope this helped.

Could I host my own site if I run my PC 24/7?

Sorry if this sounds dumb. Again, I know nothing. That's why I'm asking.

Depends on how many members you have I would assume. Your site would run slow as hell if you have a ton of members. I've heard Mike spends A LOT on equipment.

I've used godady several times to register a name, but I always host them myself.
I seriously doubt its an issue to have them host it though. You can always transfer the domain name, since you OWN it.

Yep. Personally, I have a win2k3 server running apache(dont ask), and its just on an old computer I leave running 24x7. You could do the same thing with linux or even windows xp.

Let me be more specific. I would like to start a business. It's not a web business. I just want to be able to post my "resume" for example, and offer the information and services I provide. It will be printed on a business card. So I don't want it to say:
http://yahoo.geocities.com/GoL...esume/


I would be lucky to even have more than one people trying to access it, at any time (if at all).

TIA

Agreed.

However, I read somewhere that at times hosting/domain name services would hold off releasing the name.

Windows Xp- check
Old computer - check

How do I make my PC into a server?

The short of it:
1. go to zoneedit.com and register an account. The'll give you 2 dns ips. They will ask you for your computers ip. Get it via whatismyip.com.
2. register your domain through godady. When they ask for your dns, give them #1
3. Map port 80 through your router to your local computer.
4. Make your local computer have a static ip
5. install apache
6. done
