Many of us are curious about the internet and what it can do for us on both personal and professional levels. One of most common ways to take advantage of the World Wide Web is through operating your own web site. A web site is a collection of web pages on the internet under one domain name or web address. At this time, there are over 80 million web sites on the World Wide Web. Becoming one of that 80 million requires a domain name, and domain names are acquired through domain name web hosting.
Domain name web hosting involves having a company “host” your web site and your web site’s name. For a fee, a web hosting company will essentially rent out the web space for you to place your web site and will also document your web site’s desired name. There are several companies that host domain names for web sites and finding the right one for you can be complicated.
