I'm fairly tech-savvy, but right now I want solve my confusion. I've been told to first register a free name at Wordpress or Blogspot, and then to purchase from a hosting site? (the point of starting a blog free first is that you still get to use their templates, etc.)
So those are the first two steps, right? I'm also looking for a hosting site that allows me to have email addresses at my domain as well as lots of space. Any ideas for reliable hosting sites that are relatively cheap?
Also..any hosting sites that you've used/use and like?
Thanks for any help you can provide. Sorry if this is longer than it needs to be!
