With my vision for DannyEckes.com complete my next step is to take care of the domain registration and hosting. I have used GoDaddy for many years and it wasn’t until I decided to actually create a dynamic site that I became completely frustrated with them. I have written about this here and will not waste time in this post talking about it. I am using Bluehost as my hosting company now. The main reason for going with bluehost was the low price, countless “unlimited” features, and they locally host their MySQL server allowing for faster service. The speed of the MySQL server is by far the most important part of selecting a hosting company when using wordpress or any database driven website. Keep in mind the following process is useful for bluehost and some other similar hosting sites. Some hosting sites, however, allow you to assign root folders to all your domain names. Here at bluehost and other similar hosting companies, you must have one domain name assigned as your main account that directly links to the main hosting folder. You can then assign all other domains to subfolders. The problem with this is, if you want to host more than one website on your unlimited account you need each name to link to a specific folder. Here is how I worked around the issue.
