A regular blog with good photos and some write-up makes sense I think. So pointers for blog templates or anything else that I need to know?
I would recommend Squarespace for you
No headache. Just point your domain, and start building a website. You can take basic plan since actual selling may be on amazon etc.,
8$/month gives you a lot.
The best part is, on blogger your site may look a bit unprofessional, squarespace makes things look beautiful. Your brand will look like a high end brand.
There is a 14 day free trial, so if you do not like it, you can opt out.

I second Netfreak's suggestion. A blog can be well designed and needn't look unprofessional.

- Use Etsy/Amazon for the selling.
- Stick to Facebook/Blogger for marketing.

I too am looking to put a website for business purpose. From what I see registering a .co.in is cheaper than a .com. Does that make any difference as such, especially for the website to come up in a search engine?

Not at all. The domain co.in is easily recognisable as an Indian domain which (in my opinion) is a plus point and helps put Indian sites on the global web map).
However I think co.in domains are available only for registered companies. (My info is a 5-6 years old, and things might have changed)

Thanks RedTerrano.

I've zeroed in on 'hostitsmart' economy plan to get started. Seems to be pretty good from the reviews I've read. Next option is godaddy basic wordpress plan.
If there is anything I should know about these two please let me know. I'll register it in a couple days.

Also will I be able to handle the creation part ? I can handle drag and drop, template driven page creation with a little tinkering here and there but cannot do any kind of programming.

Bought hosting from Hostgator.in under their Ganpati promo

Hatchling plan
Rs 5300 for 3 years

seemed like a good buy to start with and many positive reviews too.
Will update on the journey

Hi guys, I have about 10 domains with BigRock & I've been with them since 6 years. Its time for renewal & this time I don't find them giving the offer they extended last year.

Need to know where I can renew the domains at a good price.

When it comes to domains and hosting, the following advice I can give to all the fellow BHPians.

Research a bit and get the things from the vendors who are more known for their major offering. No allegations/offence to other brands but its good to buy the core competence thing from that brand only.
  • Godaddy and Bigrock are good at domains. Keep them to buy domains. Experienced a bit stuttery Hosting from Godaddy once.
  • For quality hosting for beginners, go for shared web hosting. That's sufficient for most of the scenarios. Hostgator is my pick and it has been working fine for 5+ years of multiple stints. There's Bluehost as well, that works good too.
  • For domains, I prefer Bigrock. decent pricing. Got a domain alongwith a hosting in bundle of Hostgator. But I slowly ended up paying up to 1.5x on domain prices. If you wish to run your websites for long, avoid the schemes which sell domains at cheaper prices. in a term of ~5 years, you end up paying more than if you begin at normal prices. For an example, any regular .com domain retails around $11 a year.
  • If you wish to step up the hosting, try DigitalOcean, its really good.

Expert Tip: Always keep your shopping schedule in November. Last Friday of November every year is celebrated as Black Friday and the following Monday as Cyber Monday worldwide. You'll find the best deals worldwide on Black Fridays and second best deals on Cyber Mondays. I usually purchase 3 years hosting packages from Hostgator on black Friday and get them at a price which is even lesser than a normal single year cost.

Domains usually cost less hence even big discounts are lesser in amount. Save big on hostings and get better deals.

PS: Usually companies based in USA/UK/Aus and some mee-too companies provide great deals. Not sure about Indian brands or Indian arms around then.

Hope this was helpful
