If this is your first experience with a website then terms like web hosting, domain names, and nameservers must seem like Geek talk to you.To help explain web hosting and why you need it let’s look at a typical scenario. You’ve decided to set up a website. You’ve selected a website design and development team.
If you choose a website designer like Boost One Web, one of the many advantages is that we are a one-stop shopping destination for all your online needs. We literally do it all! When you choose Boost One to design your website, you’ll get everything you need: domain, DNS, web hosting and even a marketing plan. This is a convenient and for most business owner’s, necessary way to get things done online. We ensure that all the pieces of your online presence will fit smoothly and seamlessly together like a great jigsaw puzzle.
After you decide what your website is going to look like, the next step is getting a domain name. That’s your website address for the website, like Boostoneweb.com.
At Boost One Web we’ll handle all the details of purchasing and registering your unique domain name.
Pricing for domain names can range anywhere from a few dollars to over fifty dollars or more. We’ll help you get the most value for your money and get you the services you actually need.
Every computer on the Internet has a unique number. It’s called an IP address. It’s like a phone number. A domain name is like a pseudonym or nickname for that IP address.
So…when our clients type in Boostoneweb.com, it’s just an easier way of getting to our site than remembering the IP address—a bunch of numbers.
Nameservers (or DNS)
The next step is setting up nameservers or DNS for your newly-purchased domain name.
DNS is a commonly used acronym for Domain Name System or Domain Name Servers. DNS is the least tangible and typically hardest part of the whole website setup process. Don’t worry. When you use a full service web host like Boost One Web this is all part of the package.
