Domain Name Companies

So, I recently left Bluehost for my website hosting after having serious issues time and time again with them and being lied to.

(I had a wordpress site with it being hosted on Bluehost and I was constantly getting hacked.)

I decided to put my website on GoodGallery and transfer my domains over to another company that was more reliable and affordable.

But there are SOOO many out there. And I need email forwarding and I prefer unlimited email storage.

I had to make a spreadsheet just to handle all the information and I figured I can't be the only one with this problem!

Free email forwarding on all domain hostings

  • Up to 5 addresses for each email forward


One of the big issues was that I needed email for about 3 different domains. If you have a hosting plan (whether you use the website hosting portion of the package or not) that has unlimited websites, that usually isn't a problem and is often included. But if you're doing a basic plan or not doing hosting, you start hitting limits on what you are allowed to do.

So I ended up with my website being hosted by Goodgallery and I pulled all my domains over to NameSilo as they were the most affordable for renewals.

For emails, I went with Zoho. They do have a free plan, but you only get 5GB per user and you can only check your email on their website or in their phone app. I use Outlook on my computer and prefer to have my email transferred into there. So I went with their paid plan.


This information is good as of Sept. 2019, plans may change!
