So I'm actually considering taking my website to a whole new level by getting myself a Domain for my site. However I'm on the fence about it considering that I have MANY pages now. Already went through a revision of my site prior and took some times to change links and making my own css beforehand. But Idk, I already have a domain but it's not my desired Domain to use. What's everyones experience with that?

I think you should totally use a domain if you want one!  ;D (Just be warned, buying domains is like a drug.. I have SO MANY)

Also remember you need to pay for Neocities Supporter if you do wanna use one; but don't be worried about it breaking links to your site, neocities will still forward old links to your new domain, so it will be fine!  :4u:

Having your own domain can be really handy if you ever wanna leave neocities, because you can just point your domain to a new host and no one will notice the difference!

I self-host and have my own domain and can only really speak positively about that. It gives you control over what goes on, and the content hosting is on your terms: when neocities inevitably disappears or sells out, you are safe.

Keep in mind that domain prices vary heftily, so make sure to find a good deal. For my .de domains I pay only about €5 a year, while libre.town eats up almost €45. Other domains can cost that much in a month.

Thanks fellas!
Yeah I've been using this one service for a long time and the Domain I was is actually pretty cheap for me to use (About the same price as my original domain.)

This is gonna be really cool to do.

This is too real ;D

As for an actual email address, if you don't want to pay extra for email services through a host but you have a domain you want to use (and you don't have a lot of technical requirements), I got my free 'business' email through Zoho. It's pretty easy to find by searching for it... that's how I found it in the first place. xD (I can also link if you want? I just didn't want my first post on this forum to sound like a sales pitch because it's totally not. Viva la free stuff, death to corporations, etc.)

I use Zoho for my email too. (Though I pay because I wanted to add both my domains onto my account). The free tier is pretty good though, I used to use it.

I've only bought two but the temptation to get more is there. So far I've just been making a whole bunch of subdomains since it's free to do.

I'm considering getting a custom domain too, wondering if it's worth it.

I want, like, 50 domains. I just have to come up with ideas for websites good enough to justify paying for them.  :eyes: I'll spend hours searching for unique domain names, just to not order them. If anyone here is able to register a .eus domain name, 'cereus' is a genus of cacti and cer.eus is currently available. It would be a really cool domain name for someone. :P
