WHAT IS WEBSITE HOSTING AND DO I NEED IT?
Website hosting is a crucial component for displaying your site online and making it accessible to users. The hosting allocates space on a server to store all of the files and information featured on your website.
Website hosting ensures your website is secure, backed up daily, and runs smoothly with fast loading times to prevent a high volume of bounce rates.
WHAT IS A DOMAIN NAME?
A domain name provides websites with an address on the internet for your customers to find your site. A domain name will only work if it points to a host.
No two domain names are the same, this is unique to your website. The domain name is what you would type into the browser URL bar to head to that website, they tend to look like this: ‘www.example.co.uk’.
Website domain names can further help develop your brand’s reputation whereby customers associate your domain name with your brand; you should also consider including your domain name in your email address to achieve consistency, such as ‘email@example.com’.
