I am looking into buying a domain soon. I already have this website, but I'm looking into making one that's not a sub domain.
I like some things about Weebly, but I also dislike some.
I don't like that I'm limited to some simple, boring themes. It isn't very pleasing to the eyes. And I'm not sure if I'd be able to do things like set DNS settings for use with things like bitly.Pro and such. I know I'm not able to with the website I made with webs.com, and that's frustrating.
My other option right now is pretty much just godaddy.com for places I can trust. But, with that, I would have to pay separately for hosting and a domain name, which seems kind of expensive to me.
If I can get more custom themes, control of DNS and other settings, email forwarding, domain name/hosting packages for a reasonable price, I'd like to know about it.
Thank you all in advance.

Go daddy I found to be one of the cheapest although I don't use their hosting but a friends. I know when you buy a domain with godaddy you can control all the dns and name servers.
If you do buy with godaddy remember to use the coupons chris has, chris, chris1, chris2, chris3 (i forget if there is a 4) that may bring down the cost as well.

I am with Hosting24.com I pay for the website and they take care of the domain name, so long as I retain the website (and pay the bill) the domain is registered to me (not to them), I am not limited to how much space I use either, I find them very helpful in most respects, the on-site web builder is also adaptable as I changed it to what I wanted it to do, so I find it very easy to use, the information being up loaded can be written in word format, so that makes it as easy as to use, all links , email etc are also adaptable and very easy to use, the only drawback I can find is that each scan or picture file must be uploaded individually

The best free solution I found is 000a.bizlink text for hosting, in there you have 11 GB of storage and 400GB of bandwidth, also you have MySQL, you can make sub-domains and it is very cheap to upgrade!
