    Yes, but I want a website with .com on the end, not a subdomain.

    It is still relevant you just need a host for a .com instead of using the free ones.

    Did you actually do some research on this one?
    I think the word starts with an "n", and ends with an "o", without any letters in between...

    A quick search should get you all the info you'll need on this.

    I use iPage and it's really easy to use and costs $3.50 a month for your own domain.

    I made this site with it. northernillinoisweathercenter.blog.com

    GoDaddy for domains and paid hosting. The company I worked for used them, and I have had the least issues with them, though you'll probably be fine with a free host. 50webs is another good free host

    a video game? if so then you should have at least some form of computer knowledge and this should be the least of your worries... if you are having trouble getting a website published by he hundreds of website providers then i have very low expectations for your game..... sorry

    Most hosts will offer to sell you a domain as well.

    I went with HostGator, partially because of their support (I've used their support to report various things when i wasn't a customer and they were responsive as legally allowed) and because they offered a good deal if I bought a lot of hosting at once, so I went with three years. XD

    making a good game requires knowledge about web hosting?
    and that's why he's asking because he's new to this stuff, he's getting the knowledge where he thinks he'd get it.

    I would suggest hostgator as well.

    http://www.hostgator.com/shared.shtml

    $157.56 will get you one domain name (your dotcom) and 3 years of unlimited bandwidth and unlimited disk space. Not a bad deal at all. If you are not looking to build the webpage yourself it also includes a pointy-clicky website builder for free.

    I actually meant using PHP and MySQL. That's what most of the website hosters use. We know how to set one up though. I have a friend making one in a few days for us, so we'll be good.
