Few web questions


What's a best website for a personal blog ? I'm going to start writing a poker blog as soon as I turn 18 so I just wanted to know which site is the best.

What's the best hosting site + domains ? I like to have everything in one place so does anyone know a good website for hosting which also offers a good domain management...(preferably with Cpanel)...something like 1-2-3reg or something like that ?

Last question: you know if I design my own layout for a blog, in photoshop and then slice and code it, is there anyway I can incoporate it into a blog ?

Thanks a lot (I expect most of these questions to be answered by Chingley for some reason, but I can't be bothered to ask him on MSN - it's waaaay past his bed time)

3ix.com is good for hosting.

You can intergrate your design into your blog, with a few tweaks here and there

how compliacted are there tweaks, do you need any php knowledge ?

Edit: By the way, I don't need the hosting to be cheap lol I want something reliable with a lot of bandwith and maybe a few domains thrown in too

If you use the deafult template that comes with wordpress (blogging software) then it's pretty easy....

The best host I have ever used is HostGator. It costs $3.99 a month (or something like that) and the bandwidth and storage is more than you'll probably need with room to expand.

I'd also recommend using WordPress (you can auto install this if you host with HostGator) and it's easy to use, has masses of features built in, is easy to skin and Google loves it in terms of SEO.

Re: Few web questions


Hey i would tell you to avoid UKreg. They offer domain registration and hosting from fasthost. However they allowed me 2 sign up 2 times with the same email, and the same credit card details so i had 2 different usernames but only one of them had my domain registered on there. Also they have crap customer service as you need to log in to get help, but if you have a password querey you obviously cant log in silly if you ask me lol

You can create your own wordpress themes or yeah you could probably modify an existing one. I found this article useful when I did it WPDesigner So you want to create WordPress themes huh? and the wordpress documentation seems quite comprehensive.
