When you want to start a business in the real world, you need a premise (physical location) to operate from i.e. set up, store, and sell your products. The same principle applies in the digital world, when you have designed your website, you need a place to host it. A website is a folder with pages, images, videos, etc. about what you do. A web host is a unique computer that can broadcast your website to the entire world through a process called hosting. Hosting comes with other web related features such as emails, web analytics, database management, etc.
A domain name is your business address on the internet. Think of it this way: if you are renting space at a physical location for your business, you give customers your business address so they can find you. If you are renting space on the internet, you give customers your domain name e.g. logos.co.ug. In simple terms, a domain name is your website’s equivalent of a physical address. In the same way that a GPS needs a street address or a plot number to provide directions, a web browser needs your domain name to direct traffic (people) to your website.
Whenever someone types in your domain name in the web browser e.g. Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari, etc., it is converted into an IP (internet) address. The hosting company then locates all the files connected to your IP address and returns all of the pictures, videos, and words that are stored on your website. When you set up an online business, you have a series of files, images, and HTML code that are stored in your website folder. These files need space and a place to rest. Without an online workspace (hosting), your files would just sit on your computer with no one viewing them. When you pay for hosting services, you are simply renting storage space on the internet — just like you would rent a physical premise for your business.
Shared Hosting: is the most widely sought after type of web hosting suitable for most businesses. Under shared hosting, several customers share storage space on one powerful server. There are several advantages to shared hosting i.e.
Cloud Hosting: is often considered the most reliable hosting plan. Rather than relying on disk space of a single server, it pulls its power from several resources, making sure you never have any downtime. More benefits include:
Dedicated Hosting: Rather than sharing space, you get a server all to yourself if you choose a dedicated hosting package. Advantages include:
VPS Hosting: Virtual Private Server (VPS) hosting includes all the features of a dedicated server, but at the price point of a shared server. Its advantages include:
