Not worth it. Just pay $1 a month and get a reg service.

If your just playing around and getting some practical experience, 000webhost is fine. But if your setting up a page you hope to get traffic too and visitors, then pay. Godaddy always has great deals for domain name + 12 months hosting for like $1 a month

You have 1+1 and many others. Go Daddy usually gets you at the "keep the domain private @ $7.99-$9.99" . There are few coupons that remove that as well.

Correct, there are many others. I just like GoDaddy, but that's just my opinion. I've tried them all, and godaddy has and will be my favorite.

The keeping private is on the domain, this has nothing to do with hosting. I use Google Domains, a regular .com domain costs $12/yr and there's free privacy on it. FYI GoDaddy gets you everywhere, you can signup for $5/mo hosting and mysteriously end up with a $200 bill that auto renews, they're as shady as it comes

Correct. He was referring to the package as a whole.

I just purchased another 4 domains yesterday from Google Domains for that reason.

Namesilo is cheaper and also free privacy.

In order to use google apps for email, do you need to purchase hosting? Or is it enough to just purchase the domain?
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.
