HTTP is the protocol to "browse" the application
FTP is the protocol to upload the application onto a web server

I suggest you to try this: http://www.7host.com
Rememeber, when you subscribe an hosting plan you must verify
if it support ASP.NET

Many hosting providers will sell you a domain name (e.g.,
YourDomainName.com), but they typically charge more for it than an dedicated
domain name service. You can buy your domain name from one of many domain
name services (your choice). GoDaddy.com is very good IMO and very
inexpensive for domain names.

You then find a hosting service (does not need to be the same company you
buy the domain name from).
Here is a listing
http://www.asp.net/Hosters/

I'm sure others will respond to you with personal recommendations.

About mail: your hosting company will typically offer mail tied to your
domain name.

First, you need to buy/register your domain with a registerer like
www.godaddy.com. GoDaddy charges about $9 per year. Registration merely
gives you the domain name. At this moment you don't have any DNS(name
server). So, you can park your domain with godaddy in the interim.

Second, you need to find a suitable hosting company. Hosting company will
provide you with their DNS (domain name server) addresses (primary and
secondary). Every hosting company provides a list of services including
SMTP, FTP, etc. Update the dns (primary and secondary) provided by the
hoster at GoDaddy (for example). Upload your web application and you are in
business.

I am hosting my web app www.aspnet4you.com with webhost4life but there are
others on the site.

Thanks,
Prodip
