Gandi is french. Godaddy is american. But the nice thing about the Internet is that you can register that domain from anywhere you like, pay using a credit card. Or use tucows - that too is quite decent.

Most of the local players aren't terribly professional so I wouldn't quite recommend them. Though Directi is a sort of exception, got itself acquired recently by Endurance International Group, that's picked up several midsized webhosts recently and now got themselves a registrar.

A good friend recently launched his website - he bought the domain from godaddy and hosted on blue host - wasn't happy with his experience at blue host.

Getting a domain name and hosting a website under that name are essentially separate activities. You could use any domain name provider to purchase and renew your domain name. For hosting the website you will need a good service provider.

Net4India is an Indian hosting provider, although I have heard positive reviews from friends about GoDaddy.

I have not had very good results with indian hosting providers - one of the very few that's any good is e2e networks https://www.e2enetworks.com/

US providers that are very decent - I host with softlayer (recently acquired by ibm), then bluehost is actually fairly good, but they've been spotty lately.

For domain name registration, net4.in (Indian company) and pairnic.com (American) are both top class.

Can i just buy a domain name for my blog and keep it hosted on blogger only?

Will I be eligible for google adsense in that way?

pair is a very old company - and still run by old time *nix geek types. Strongly recommended though they aren't the cheapest in the market.

Net4 - I haven't had very good experiences but that was several years back and maybe that's just me.

Yes you most certainly can : https://support.google.com/blogger/t.../1233381?hl=en

Do you even require your own domain name for adsense? Given that Blogger & Adsense are both Google-owned, they should play well together.

I did, but this shows up now. Earlier whenever I applied it was disapproved and now I can't even reapply for it.

Did you read the requirements & meet all the criteria?

One example of a helpful guide
(It says your own domain name is required)

Hi guys, I've a few web domains that I want to renew. BigRock is ~700/domain.

Looking for advice if any low cost option is available.

Thanks in advance.

While this might not really be just domain name based information that I'm asking for, posting it here nonetheless.

My wife runs an ethnic clothes manufacturing unit and we started using facebook as a medium to market ourselves.The number of "likes" the page gets is increasing slowly but gradually.

I wanted to know if its better to get my own domain name, I mean it does make the brand a little more professional. So here are my requirements, let me know the best & cheapest way to achieve this:
1. I would definitely like a website and have it hosted.
2. I would want to put photographs of our collection and would want access to upload new pictures as and when we make new garments.
3. To be able to "easily" make changes on the website, like defining new categories, moving items within categories, listing/modifying price etc.

Lastly, how much does a payment gateway on a website cost?
