I'm about to start a new firm with some friends. Can anyone give me advice on how to get a website:

A) register a domain
B) get several email addresses
C) host a website (we have a company that will create the website and automatically update content regularly)

I just need the most cost-effective option.

I'm not looking to build my own website. Another company is going to create the website and content. I just need the most cost-effective way to register a domain and host the website our marketing firm will create.

This is something the website creator/designer/marketing firm usually handles as part of their over all services.

I'd get a recommendation from your website creator since they're more in the business than we are.

I don't have my own site so I don't know what's good/best.

GoDaddy is a garbage company; I would not deal with them under any circumstances.

that's what I thought. who would you recommend?

Again, someone else will create the website and manage the content, so all I need is domain registration, hosting, and email

Why is godaddy garbage? I host with them. I think it's something like $120 per year, plus some extra money for 5 email addresses. That may not be the cheapest, but they answer the phone when you call. If you deal with an offshore hoster/registrar, good luck getting someone on the phone who knows what they're doing.

I'm a dinosaur so I was going to recommend Network Solutions but I hear they've been doing lots of shady stuff as well... I did not have bad experiences with them when I was using them, but that was a long time ago. Admin or other tech people on here would know... admin, who do you use for hosting?

I used Weebly, seems fine it has been a couple years now. I just have the starter hosting plan, works fine and it's like $5 a month. Someone made my site on there for me, it claims to be so easy anyone can do it (they all say that) but I am not sure someone with limited skill and even less time would really make that nice a page on their own. But sounds like you have that covered. I use office 365 for everything so the email is setup through there. I did do that myself but it was a pain and I could never do it again without a bunch of re-reading.

If you want top-notch, but pricier than the competition, go with Cloudflare.
