WebHosting Services in 2021
What is WebHosting
The process of getting your website online for all your users to interact with it involves two main processes
- Purchasing a Domain
- Buying Hosting services
It is thus important to understand these two processes before we discuss which company to consult when you want to buy hosting.
Purchasing a Domain
You can choose any name you want as your domain name or name identifier. As long as that name has not been ‘taken’, then you are free to purchase the domain from the different Domain name Registrar on the market.
It is also paramount to note that you can still buy a domain even when someone else has bought it before you, as long as you give them a worthwhile offer to purchase it from them
Buying WebHosting Services
This is the jest of our discussion today.
We started off by asking ourself what Webhosting is. If we now understand what domain ownership is, then it is easy to say that the process of purchasing a domain is equivalent of buying the furniture while web hosting is buying the house.
It is in this house (webhosting) that the domain and its content will be ‘hosted’. In simpler terms, WebHosting is getting a server where your domain will be accommodated and you will be in a position to add content into the domain, now called the website.
