A domain name, a series of textual characters that identifies a specific IP address, uniquely identifies a website on the Internet. Domain names locate businesses, organizations, or other entities on the Internet. Domain names are easy to remember, easy to type alternatives to obscure URL’s that you receive with free website hosting services. Using a domain name allows you to receive more visitors, less bounced emails, and the chance to make a lasting impression on the Web.
A great benefit of using your domain name is that regardless of how many times you change your access provider, your Email and website address will always remain the same.
While a domain name is not necessary to have a website, it is recommended. Whether you are creating a family website or a business website, having a domain name allows your site to be more easily found and remembered.
Web hosting is the technology that puts your website online. It is one of the three essential components of establishing your Web presence: a domain name (Web address), a website and a Web host. Your domain name tells people where to find you, your website is viewed by your visitors, and hosting makes your site part of the Internet. Quite simply, the definition of Web hosting is an online storage service for any content displayed or accessed through your website. Common examples of stored information include images, video, or design templates.
In order to choose a hosting package that will fit your needs, begin by thinking about the goals of your business. The biggest differentiators between hosting packages are the size of disk space, monthly data transfer, number of email boxes and tools such as open source applications and programming languages. After you determine how you plan to use your site and the amount of traffic you expect on your site, you’ll be able to identify which package is best for your business.
