Taking The Confusion Out of Web Hosting

Taking The Confusion Out of Web Hosting

So, you want to build your first website?

Great! Now, you’re going to need hosting. (And I don’t mean the Steve Harvey kind…)

You’re probably asking yourself this one big, fat question…

What the heck is hosting?

Here’s the simple answer:

Web hosting is basically space on a giant, shared server managed by a hosting company. This is where all of your website files will “live” so to speak. You pay the hosting company a small fee, and they allow you to store your website on their servers. 

Phew, got the technical words out of the way.

Now, let’s talk a bit more about how it works for you.

When you sign up with a hosting company, like GoDaddy for example, they allow you to install applications like WordPress to create your own website, from the ground up, however you like.

This very website you’re reading right now is a WordPress website hosted by GoDaddy.

What about domain names?

Domain name = URL. Your domain name is literally your name on the web. 

Here are some examples of domain name types:

www.yourname.com

www.yourawesomebusiness.com

As an entrepreneur, you may want to go with your name. If you’re a local business or any business with a name, for that matter, you’ll want to go with your business name.

Buying hosting is the first step in any web design project.

So now you know what a domain name and hosting is, it’s pretty clear that you need it to start building your website. The best hosting companies also have the best support, so after signing up, if you need any help, they’re quick to offer assistance. I personally recommend GoDaddy for all of your hosting and domain name needs. In my opinion, they’re the easiest to understand, they have very competitive deals, and they have very reliable support.

“What is the difference between WordPress.com and WordPress.org?”

“What is the difference between WordPress.com and WordPress.org?”

“What is the difference between WordPress.com and WordPress.org?” This question gets asked a lot.
Hi there, it’s Joshua Mancil, web designer here at the Quantum Consulting Team. And I’m here today to give you the simple answer:

 

WordPress.com allows you to have a website and blog, hosted directly by WordPress. You have the option of a free version that uses a subdomain, like yourname.wordpress.com, and access to basic features. Paid versions provide access to additional features, like the ability to connect your website with your own domain name. You have different options for customizing your website, like a variety of themes. What you can’t do, however, is upload your own theme.

 

WordPress.org is a self-hosted platform. What this means, is you buy your own domain name and hosting, and use the WordPress software on your own. This way provides the most flexibility. For example, you can upload a theme you purchased from Elegant Themes or another them company, like Envato. You can install plugins that boost the functionality of your site, like the Bloom optin plugin to create popup optin forms, and automatically add an opt-in below your blog posts.

 

So, when it boils down to it, it’s about whether it’s more important to you to have more options and flexibility to work within your website, or you want an inexpensive, simple solution.
