I'm hopefully starting my blog this month, I was looking at 123.reg to buy my domain as I used them for my business website and so I'm familiar with how it works.
Am I better off using Host Presto though? I see there's a discount available but can I use them to buy the domain too?

Any hosting company will let you buy domain names alongside the space ;)

The package advertised on here with Hostpresto includes a free domain name

Ahhh lovely, didn't realise that! Perfect.

Is that now the Mega package?

Another question :) All set up on HostPresto, I'm now looking at Wordpress but the blog post mentions Softaculous. Is this something I access from HostPresto?

Another question - my business website was created in Wordpress for me by a friend. I haven't done any amends or anything on it yet, the domain has just been transferred back to me but I need to sit down with my friend when allowed and go through how I make the changes I need to make on business site on Wordpress (it's still with her at the moment). Probably a silly question, but assume there's not any issues with this ? I can have two different websites created on Wordpress? She's sorted the hosting for me so won't be on HostPresto (although will transfer it at some point now I have it).

Basically what I'm asking in a very roundabout way, is can the two sites be totally independant of each other?!

If anyone knows I would really appreciate it as I know nothing about this...!!

You want to have 1 wordpress site with one URL hosted on hostpresto and another wordpress site with a different URL hosted with another hosting company?

if so, yes that's fine
