    Hey! Thank you so much for this content, your channel has shown me in 1 hour the same information i spent a week looking at!

    Just wondering how I’d set up an email address with my domain name as the @ if i choose to use three separate providers like you have?

    "All 3 elements" of a website is (domain – dns – webhosting) a webbuilder is not included

    Hi Christian, thank you for your videos!
    I have a question: If I want to setup a website on let’s say WordPress, do I need to have domain, webhosting and mailhosting on 3 separate platforms? You said you have webhosting on cloudways and your domain on namecheap. But is it bad to only use namecheap for both webhosting and domain since they provide it all at once? Or is it better to use another provider for webhosting?

    great content / presentation.

    If I upgrade on Wix will I get to pick my website name? Will the process be seamless? I don’t want to have to rebuild my website at all. And will I get an email address I can use that has the domain name in it? Can I get multiple emails for a few of my volunteers too? And how much would this cost? If I miss a payment will my entire website vanish overnight? What I like about the free option is it is free for life.

    Hi Christian, thanks for all your content, very instructive!
    I wonder about premium DNS with Namecheap. What is your perspective in that regard?
    Thanks !! (-:

    Thanks, Christian! Definitely, don’t pay for an SSL certificate! Cloudflare has the origin certificates which let you install it for free.

  14. Byte on August 31, 2021 at 10:11 pm

    Hey Craylor, amazing video! I just have one question, you didn’t touch on the topic of business emails and how they function and if it’s worth buying one or not.

  15. SONG SALON on August 31, 2021 at 10:12 pm

    Great Subjects.

  16. Radim Cernej on August 31, 2021 at 10:13 pm

    Cool hat. Where can I buy one please?

  17. Francisco Perez on August 31, 2021 at 10:15 pm

    Thanks for this video!!

    I use Google Domains, it is very easy to use and the prices are excellent and very easy to attach with your hosting provider, and everything is under your own Google account.

  24. SchooL on August 31, 2021 at 10:26 pm

    what’s your opinion between " www VS non www domain? "

  25. Kaloyan Ivanov on August 31, 2021 at 10:29 pm

    What about Dynadot, are they fine?
    And if I already bought some domains from that site, can I use different tool to make the site, like wordpress or just pay someone to make my site?

  26. christos pantos on August 31, 2021 at 10:31 pm

    Hi . I have one question. On trustpilot reviews namecheap – dynadot have the worst rating , godaddy and ionos have the best rating. Now the question is where to buy Domain names ? Which should i trust ?
    I can’t decide.

  27. Donald Kalinowski on August 31, 2021 at 10:33 pm

    Thank you, Christian. Found your videos a few days ago and very glad!! I am now subscribed. QUESTION: I went to register different names and for each, I found out it was already purchased. It offers me the option of buying it ($199 minimum offer). Wondering if then it becomes ‘mine’ and I won’t have to pay $199 every year, or that will be the price I pay onward. If it does then become mine, what price should I expect to pay each year?

  28. John Yu on August 31, 2021 at 10:39 pm

    Can i buy a domain name from someone and use it in another web host?

  29. Dulshi Peiris on August 31, 2021 at 10:40 pm

  30. Jim Kaaf on August 31, 2021 at 10:42 pm

    I have searched my desire domain name on 4 different websites and here is the result : GoDaddy ( $4000 then $19.99/Year ) – Namecheap ( $2,300 then $8.88/Year ) – Dynadot ( $2,295 then $8.99/Year ) – IONS ( $2,295 +$1 first year then $15.99/Year )… Its crazy
