Hey guys!

I just got a domain name for my vCard with hover.com. A close friend recommended it. I am looking forward to buying a .com domain name this time for my portfolio. Which service do you recommend?

And I’m going to host it on mt, onwards. Which plan do you use?

Thanks! :)

I love name.com for buying domains and hostgator/ (mt) for hosting.. but hosting packages on (mt) depend on the traffic your expecting.. if a few hundred/month then go to the base hosting.

I expect around 100’s of visitors at the beginning but the traffic is sure to increase later on ;)

start with the base model and work up if needed, (mt) can switch things quickly.

EDIT : its a bit different on (mt) because they do things based on CPU time so you could have lots of traffic and little CPU time.. i think its called GPU but its like the same thing, just processing time

Good luck with setting up your portfolio ;) .
