More than once in our work, as we came to the fateful time of defining hosting and domain, we saw a wave of terror appearing in the eyes of our interlocutor!
For many people who do not have jobs, the difference between hosting and domain is unclear, and it is unclear what a website is really about to publish.
What to know about a domain name?
Registration can be made by a person or a company, there is a procedure to follow and is a practice that is taken care of by the provider of registration (you will need to provide personal data or company information)
- There is not only one domain name but a whole host of other extensions, most notably .com and .net: choose according to your needs and preferences
- Having a domain doesn’t just mean having a website: you can buy a domain without buying a space (ie hosting).
- To maintain a domain property, pay the provider an annual (or biennial) fee: if you let it expire, the domain is back to be registerable (usually providers warn you in advance).
- It is not said that the desired domain name is available: if someone has already registered it with a date extension (.sg, .com, .org, .net etc.), you can check availability with a different extension, or think of an alternative
A specific task may choose to use an extension that helps customize the domain name: for this there are recent themed domains of many different categories including .photo, .email, .pub, .guru, .catering, and many others. Also to register a themed domain you can contact the provider to check availability.
Hosting: Space on the Web
Having a site – whether it’s a magazine, a blog, an ecommerce, or something else – means buying a web space, more or less depending on your needs. Purchase space from Singapore web hosting provider, for example – and within this space you can build the site that will be accessible by everyone by typing the corresponding domain name.
What to know about a hosting?
Typically, Singapore web hosting offer packages that include space and domain: Deciding what kind of space to buy is not always easy: To understand the features of a service, it is a good idea to consult all the specifications of an offer (type of space, availability and database number, e-mail boxes and more). Sounds all very complicated? Trust a professional, typically a web designer, who guides you in choosing the best hosting
What is hosting with the design and functionality of a website?
Some things can be understood, learned and accomplished on their own – making a site with WordPress, for example- but with a sometimes costly investment in study hours and uncertain attempts and results. The best alternative is always the advice of a professional, to bring the website online within reasonable times, make sure it is loaded quickly and that it works in all its parts
