Website Hosting Services
Website hosting is a service that allows organizations and individuals to post a website or web page onto the Internet. A web host, or web hosting service provider, is a business that provides the technologies and services needed for the website or webpage to be viewed in the Internet. Websites are hosted, or stored, on special computers called servers.
When Internet users want to view your website, all they need to do is type your website address or domain into their browser. Their computer will then connect to your server and your webpages will be delivered to them through the browser.
Most hosting companies require that you own your domain in order to host with them. If you do not have a domain, the hosting companies will help you purchase one.
Domain Name Registration
Domain name registration is the act of reserving a name on the Internet for a certain period, usually one year. It’s important to know that this domain will remain yours for as long as you renew it and there is no way to purchase a domain name forever.
Domain name registration is necessary for a website, an email or another web service. However you don’t have to always register a new domain name. Many companies allow you to use subdomains of their domain names for a website, or you can have an email with their primary domain (ex. yahoo.com, gmail.com).
The most important thing about a domain name registration is that it gives you personality and recognized identity.
