  5. IMHO, register your domain name AND host your blog with Google for $10.00 usd PER year. Google uses GoDaddy to register your domain name and uses their (google) servers for FREE! Plus it includes privacy.

    Reasons:
    1. no gimmicks
    2. no worries about down time
    3. no worries about bandwidth
    4. no worries about slow loading issues, unless your blog has lots of javascript or large images. That's your fault not Googles.
    5. trustworthiness
    6. reliable

    Good luck!
