    Can anyone recommend the best sites(s) to purchase a few domains for easy setup with WordPress? I'd like to get the opinion and preference of others

    Thanks in advance.

    I mainly use Namecheap. Their prices are great and they have a lot of weird TLDs.

    Same here.
    I use Namecheap for all my domians, super easy and the support is really good too. Plus they have a cheap little app called easyWP which is great for WP hosting.

    Hostinger is also very good (and cheap). It has an inbuilt word press / Joomla installer as well.

    LOL.. actually I had namecheap, name and hostinger all three... this year I moved everything to a single host for ease. Found hostinger better than the rest w.r.t the pricing, cache and TTFB

    Name silo i like the best
    https://www.namesilo.com/
    most professional, best pricing, you can use their nameservers to point to your domain server (volume may be limited?)

    Thanks for all the suggestions! I will consider Namecheap, Hostinger or Namesilo. Glad I asked the question on this forum before I went to GoDaddy.

    Don't do godaddy, for many reasons.

    Two more questions:
    • Would you recommend hosting from one of these domain providers for a WP blog (mostly text and pictures, might include some video later on)?
    • Is it better to purchase a .com domain for a blog or is another extension okay (.fun, .store, .style)? If so, what are the advantages of the dot.com from an SEO point of view (if any)?
    Thanks in advance!

    I had a blog on namecheap using their easyWP app and that worked fine. I think it was just over $3 a month. The blog out grew that hosting package and I moved it over to Hostinger VPS.

    I don't know much about SEO and domain extensions, it used to make a difference and with that in mind I always try to get .com .net or .org
    I'm sure someone with more knowledge than me will help out.

    Thanks! I'll take a good look at Hostinger. And I'm leaning towards a .com

    Domain names that contained targeted keywords may get increased click-through rates and higher rankings on search engines* (depending upon the type of backlinks and other SEO metrics). But when it comes to TLD choosing .com over any other would be a wise decision. It may not have any effect in terms of SEO but it is most common and easy to remember than any other TLD's ( abcxyz.com is easy to remember than abcxyz.style)
