Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Ok. I know all the programming but what I want is expert advice on how and where to register a domain name. Also I need to use a server online to host my website. I need it to allow python programs(so i can fetch info from other sites), php, mysql, etc... Mainly I need a step by step to make my site that is hosted online from say www.genericwebhost.com/mysite to a www.mywebsite.com.

Kind of like asking "I want to create the worlds greatest program, please tell me everything I need to know to do that". –  John Gardeniers Mar 1 '11 at 4:32
