i use godaddy.com for both domain registration and hosting. it was about $7 for the domain name and $50 for hosting for a year. the customer service is good also. i’d recommend them highly!

I disaree on godaddy for the long haul – I’ve heard a lot about bad service and such.  If you’re pretty techy, I host my website with http://bluehost.com.  It was the cheapest I could find with the most options, space, bandwidth, etc.  It’s great if you’re creating your own site from scratch – easy to drag and drop files, etc. plus add email accounts.

Good luck!

here’s ours for a destination wedding: http://www.andresandmarisa.com password: (email me and I’ll send it to you) just a sidenote, making a website was one of the best decisions we’ve made so far. every time anyone asks a question about the wedding, we just direct them to our website. good luck!

marisa, what web hosting did you use? did you use either godaddy or bluhost? 

i still have yet to purchase any domain space so the feedback really helps!

GoDaddy has it’s drawbacks, as does any hosting site, really.  BlueHost isn’t bad, but unless you’re a big website designer, you most likely won’t notice anything different.

 

GoDaddy has great customer support and are willing to walk you through the entire process with a friendly, knowledgable staff.  Anytime I had a question, issue or concern, they were ready and willing to get it resolved in the first call.  That’s just my experience (I’ve been using them for almost 7 years) and IMO.

 

My website is finally all finished (with flash and animation, too) and completely live!  Thanks for the compliment kbok!

If you are having a Jewish wedding and want to post your ketubah photo on line, http://www.ketubah-gallery.com will allow you to borrow their images with permission-they have a really nice one for a destination wedding that we almost bought, but got a Papercut ketubah instead. We’re not finished our wedding site yet.

i used weddingtracker.com. there is a $60 annual fee, but i’d highly recommend this host site because:

  1. plenty designs / styles / colors to choose from with easy to use setup functions – i have no knowledge whatsoever on how to make a website, and have received many compliments on our site.
  2. feature that allows your guests to order pictures from your website
  3. feature that allows you to track your guests, their addresses, and filter what gifts they’ve sent you and whether you’ve sent thank you notes yet
  4. feature that tracks rsvps for all events, not just the wedding, but also showers / pre-wedding parties, etc.
  5. feature that allows you to sort your guest list (by any number of variables – by who hasn’t rsvp’ed, who is missing an address, bride’s side, groom side, etc.)
  6. feature that allows you to export your guest list to an excel spreadsheet (which our invitation maker needs to address the envelopes)
  7. feature that allows guests to rsvp through your website, and the rsvps are automatically recorded on your guest list
  8. feature that allows you to send email messages to certain groups of guests.
  9. AWESOME customer service

there are a ton of other nifty features that weddingtracker.com offers, but these are the ones i’ve found most useful so far…

Does anyone know of a wedding web site program that requires visitors to login with a username and password? I don’t want my web site to be public — I want to restrict who can see it.

Hey you guys! Sorry! I totally haven’t been checking on this thread. I totally love iWeb! It’s so freaking easy to use. And it works so seamlessly with the other parts of the iLife package. I highly recommend it! They have a lot of templates but also give you the option of doing a lot of customization! I was able to pretty much design ours from scratch and I’m always messing with it. I love the blog feature although I haven’t been keeping up with it lately. Too much time spent on weddingbee I guess. 🙂 I know I’m a huge geek but I actually requested and got iLife ’08 and iWork ’08 for my birthday! I totally love it, and use the Pages software for all my table layouts and such. And the Numbers software (all apart of iWork) already has a template for wedding planning with a guest list and budget and everything. I know, I know, I’m a geek! But MAC’s RULE!

c-girl, I know you can lock websites that are created in iWeb and if I remember correctly, TheKnot has that option too as does ewedding, which my friend is using.

I would encourage you to use blogger. I started there and have had nothing but good times updating my wedding blog. Best of luck!

you can lock a website with username and password with almost any webhosting package…you just go into the settings and check the option to require password and set it!
