I would kindly appreciate any advice. I am situated in Viet Nam and my girl friend has designed a webpage in microsoft publisher. all she needs to do know is secure a domain name, which will be a .com address and a reliable hosting service to run her website. then to put it online. will the web host assist her with this task?
what are the main things to check for when choosing a host and are some more reliable than others...or are they all pretty similiar in the level of service?
many thanks for any words of wisdom

Im not certain if your webhost will assist her with getting a .com name that she likes. She can check this website http://www.checkdomain.com/ to see which names are taken.Once she has decided and signed up for the name, the web hosting should do the rest. What I look for a provider is a very affordable ($10.00-$30.00) provider, dosent necessarly have to have all the advanced features, but the customer service has to be top of the line. I usually get http://www.smallbusiness.yahoo.com on and off, for various activities such as My old blog, my old game and more. Very good place.
