Anyone have a quick 1-2-3 guide?

Looking for a quick, simple "1-2-3" type guide for buying/setting up a domain name, hosting and so on for a website. I haven't done this in years and everything's changed... anyone have a URL or the time to help out with the basic steps needed to do this? I'd need web space and server access to set up some server-side stuff (blogging software, for example) - which I can do, no problem. It's the basic name-registering and hosting bits that I'm a noob on. Thanks much!

If you can add software to a site, I am sure that you wont find problems with setting up and or purchasing your own domain. I have registered domains at various locations like godaddy, bluehost, netfirms. They all offer good services. What you need to do is choose a package they offer. Packages vary according to space, email addresses used etc. Check these sites but do wait for other answers because I am sure that there are many competitive prices around.

I use I have never had a problem with them. Been with them for three years and host sites for several other companies. I have unlimited bandwidth and I get three free domains as well as the ability to host unlimited external domains and subdomains. I have unlimited email and ftp accounts. I use the professional package which is less than $200 per year. The newer accounts have the blogging software and ecommerce included. I have loaded my own to the server. They are quick with response to questions and problems (of which I have had none) and have plenty of help files, tutorials, videos and the like to help you get started.
