Domain Name and Hosting
What We Do
You can’t have a website without a domain name. Like a street address that tells people where you live, a domain helps customers drive directly to your website. The most successful businesses use the same set of words and images in all customer touchpoints – on their website, in their emails and order confirmations, on their signs, etc. This is branding at its simplest. And the digital pieces of your brand all spring from your domain name.
A web hosting is a computer where people store their websites. Think of it as a house where you store all your stuffs; but instead of storing your clothes and furniture, you store computer files (HTML, documents, images, videos, etc) in a web host.
More often than not, the term “web hosting” refers to a company that rent out their computer/servers to store your website and provide Internet connectivity so that other users can access to the files on your website. For most cases, we, as the hosting company will handle server maintenance work, such as backup, root configuration, maintenance, disaster recoveries, and so on.
A domain is the address of your website. Before you can setup a website, you will need a domain.
To own a domain name, you need to register it with a domain registrar. Domain name is not something physical that you can touch or see. It is a string of characters that give your website an identity (yes, a name, like human and businesses. All domain names are unique. This means there can be only one alexa.com in the world. You cannot register a name once it is registered by others.
