It's good you asked here then you can have many different opinions.


If you know you are starting small then having your own domain the first place to start.

Some people do not mind buying things even if the account of the person
looked like http://users.aol.com/mybizshop/main.html

But most look now for a fully qualified domain like:
www.mybizshop.com This way it looks more professional.

Sure you can go to other places for domain names but either you would be like renting the name or something.

But if you want to fully own the right to the name without renting the domain space then
a good place to start is get a 2-5 years paid up front at network solutions.

Savvy computer users will notice virtual domains and will avoid them.

If you just want your "foot in the door" to internet business then
I reccomend using webjump.com (free domain hosting) but they have
certain strings attached prior to signing up.

Ask jim(deadlock.com) hosting by hurricane.

Also some consider where they live in the world to host sites.
so something like www.mybiz.de might be good for you if you are in
Germay. But the business world mostly prefers the ".com" as the main way to present a business
on the net.

Also read all past Q&A here at deadlock. I am sure your question was posted
prior to yours.

The best book that might be best for depends how long you have been using
computers and internet. So if you are new to both then maybe "Internet for Dummies"
and "Computers for Dummies" then purchase about $80 worth of computer magazines to play catchup
with todays technology.
