Hello, I am looking to set up a domain name and also have three or four emails (matching the domain name).

Just wondering where to start.
Seems to be alot of domain registration places on the net.

Basically I want cheapish, extrension is to be .com.au, and must have a half decent amoung of email storage included (100mb).

Any recommended place would be much apprciated.

Cheers
Anthony

Good cheap hosting with many gigs of space

Siteground (http://www.siteground.com/index.htm?referrerid=27169)


under $10 a month and 500+g of space and traffic and you can setup hundreds of emails all with their own quotas etc.

and i can do .com.au domain names at pretty reasonable prices...

I use Dot easy http://www.doteasy.com.au/

you can upgrade to there premium plan for $90

I just redirect all my email to a gmail account (much better web interface) and set the gmail account return email address to my domain

Ok well that dot easy one looks pretty good.

Will run all the above by the rest of the boys (family business) and go from there. So far I like the look of that dot easy. very straight forward and simple (like me haha)

Cheers for all the help so far, very much appreciated.

no they aint

you register the .com.au and then host it there..

they give you a .com free if you do it for twelve months...

Just a quick point of note about Doteasy, the web site tools that they run on there servers are only PHP4 and Apache 1.x, (last look 4 months ago) this pi$%ed me off a bit since when I create web sites I use PHP5 and Apache 2.2. But if you only have email and URL redirection then doteasy has all you need.

Grimace, theres are a lot of options attached to every service list above and trying to understand what each does will get confusing.

You said
I am looking to set up a domain name and also have three or four emails (matching the domain name).

The cheapest option (from what you have said you need) is to buy a domain from someone that supports email redirection. Then setup up a free email service (i use google gmail with about 3Gb of space) and just forward all incoming emails to these accounts.

Good advice - I use this option with google aps and gmail.

Try www.godaddy.com, not sure about the .com.au, i have a few .coms and .nets they charge about 9.95 a year, free one email address and they host it free too (up to about 10mb site size)!!!, just have to be a bit careful of the site content, they don't like hacker or pen testing sites :angel:

I transferred to http://smartyhost.com.au/ for just the same thing, about $40 for .com.au domain name and another $20 to host ten emails.
