How does website hosting work?

 

To get your small business online you need to set up a website. This includes email addresses which carry your business name, rather than another name. This helps to make your Small Business look professional. If you are setting up a personal blog or website you will also require website hosting.

 

What is a domain/domain name?

 

This is the name that you have chosen for your website. But, you need to check if it’s available, as the name you want may already be registered by someone else and is not available for you to use.

 

Why do I need a hosting product?

 

If you want a website for your small business or personal blog, you will need a domain and a web hosting package. Without this, you will not be able to publish your website for people to see when they surf the web.
