Hi, 

 

what should be done first? Building a website or buying a domain? I have already picked my niche and created some content but haven't published anything yet. What do you guys recommend? Is it better to build a website first, then buy a domain or vice versa?

I guess it is whatever you are comfortable with, I imagine the site would have to be built locally until you can upload it to your web host, I've always just bought the domain/hosting and then started on the site - that way you can test and view everything live.

I also go with domain first and then build my sites :) Good luck with your new site Ray, great move!  :)

I approach this a little differently. If the site is a script, the first thing I want to know is what the script requirements are and then I check with my existing host to see if they can meet those requirements. In those cases I don't have a host, I start looking for hosts that meet those requirements. Most of the time, I keep to those hosts that have proven track records of reliability.
