Default OT: Web hosting?

My cousin wants me to setup a website for her wedding, so I need to register a domain name for her. Can anyone recommend a site for domain name registration and/or hosting? Prices seem to vary quite a bit . . .

TIA!

Yeah, that's about right.

I use both of these providers:

Coach: IX Web Hosting

First Class: Kangaweb

IX has lots of disk space and really cheap rates and seems to be reliable and fast. With Kangaweb, you get less disk space per dollar, but you get things like IMAP E-mail, shell access (really rare these days but IMHO essential if you're writing any CGI), and real tech support. By real tech support I mean you can E-mail them something off the wall like "add MP4 MIME type to your http.conf" and somebody with a brain will actually read it, do it, and send you a polite reply (not boilerplate) in hours. That kind of service is completely unheard-of these days.

I've used Kangaweb for 6 years now, and IX for the past 9 months.

And I should mention that anybody who has a hosting account is probably registered in their referral program, but I wouldn't be recommending anything I didn't feel strongly about.

Do those guys provide name registration as well as hosting? This site won't be very big or get much traffic, and will only be up for a few months . . .

Hmm... if it's for a wedding I'm assuming you probably want the site to have a limited lifetime (a year or so?). With IX you can pre-pay and cancel any time with a full pro-rated refund, but maybe it's even easier and cheaper for you if I just host a subdomain for you on my server.

Let me know offline if you're interested in this option...

Yup, both have included free registration sign-up deals.
