    Question Newbie needs help

    I'm a newbie to this paid hosting and paid domain scene and needs some guidance.

    I've read from a thread here before about not buying a domain from webhosts or taking the domain+hosting package. So I'm planning to buy a domain from namecheap and a hosting plan from a malaysian webhost.

    My question is, when I tried to buy the web hosting plan, i was asked to select one of these:

    1.I want [the webhost name] to register a new domain for me

    2.I want to transfer my domain to [the webhost name]

    3.I will update my nameservers on an existing domain Or I will register a new domain.

    Which should I select? I haven't bought the domain yet. What should I buy first, the domain or the hosting plan?

    Sorry if it is a stupid question but I'm confused with what to do first. Thanks in advance.

    Buy your domain first. Then select option 3 above when buying the hosting..

    You could ask the Sales Dept of your selected webhost about their ordering process.

    It is not necessarily a problem buying both from the same reliable company.

    Hi shift,

    mylinear is right. You could ask the Sales Dept of the hosting provider you intended to buy from.

    I'm sure they are more than willing to help you.

    Hi,

    Here are the opinions for your regarding the 3 questions:

    1.I want [the webhost name] to register a new domain for me
    - If you do not have a domain name, this option can lead you to register a new domain name with this web host company.

    2.I want to transfer my domain to [the webhost name]
    - If you host a domain name and website with other web hosting company, this options will allows you to transfer the domain name to the new hosting company. You can consult your new hosting company on how to perform this action.

    3.I will update my nameservers on an existing domain Or I will register a new domain.
    - Choose this options if you already have your own domain name on other domain registrar such as namecheap.com, so you just need to configure the DNS to point to this new hosting company DNS before you can host your website.

    Good luck! =)
