Is it recommended to register a domain and buy hosting from two different companies??
Does a domain name registration from a good company like godaddy make any difference, or all are same??
I have also heard that one should register domain for at least 5 years for its reliability…is it true? What would happen if one register a domain for 1 year while next year the registrar company raises its price?
It doesn’t make any difference where you register your domain name.
Most hosting companies (like Hostmonster) offer a free domain name registration when you get hosting from them.
You don’t have to register a domain name for 5 years upfront. That’s completely unnecessary, and it doesn’t have anything to do with reliability. Just make sure that you don’t forget to renew your domain name registration on time (before the first year is up) but you’ll get plenty of email reminders and if you got a domain name through your web host they’ll probably do it for you automatically.
P.S. For hosting I recommend one of these: http://www.webhostingtable.com

They’re one of the oldest hosting companies, founded 1998, they’re also one of the largest, currently hosting about 500,000 websites.
Their hosting plan includes a web builder, so you can create your site just by drag and drop (without any programming), or you could install WordPress (easy, one click install from their control panel), choose a theme that you like, and start adding content.
