Website Hosting, A Definitive Guide

Website Hosting, A Definitive Guide

Attorney at work

Website hosting basics are important to anyone with a website. Sure, the topic is about as thrilling as discussing dental hygiene, and the details may seem confusing when you start talking with your website designer and IT person. You need to understand what you are buying and what to watch out for, though, because bad hosting choices can lead to slow websites, security issues and miserable tech support.
And that adds up to a waste of your time and money.

The Master of Your Domain

Hosting and domain names are the basis of any website. Your domain name is your .com address — the part that goes before the .com or .biz or .org. It tells people where to find your website and is also used for your email addresses. Your domain name is a label representing an IP address. The IP address points to a server that is owned by your host. So, your domain name is like your phone number and the host is like your phone service or provider.
