    Website Design + Branding/Marketing Expert – Sites for Yogis | Patrick North is the contact

    Dreamhost – Get a URL (web domain): cost is $9.95/yr to buy a name. they also have hosting plans too. it’s best to purchase your URL from the company who hosts to make it easy, AND you can search for Domain availability.

    Many people use GoDaddy.com. Also good but less service unless you pay for add-ons, so be careful! My friend’s site just got hacked.
