For those that have followed us right from our inception, we have been hoping to supply more than just WordPress themes and installs, we have also been wanting to offer other web-based products for your Website needs. So, our first product we are going to spotlight is domain names.
A domain name quite simply put is the name of your website, but there is a bit of complexity at play, as computers only know numbers, behind the domain name is a bunch of numbers (IP address) usually in the form of four bunches of three such as 184.108.40.206, as these numbers (unlike the example) can be complex, this is why domain names were developed.
A domain name can be any number of letters or numbers, but it has to end with a TLD or top-level domain, which are either country-specific like .co.uk, .eu, .de, or they can be other extensions like .net, .com or .org.
In order to use a domain name, you have to register it, these typically cost anywhere between £10-£25 per year depending on the extension, for example, our .uk domains start from £9.15py and our .coms are from £11.05py
Once registered it has to be connected to a name server, these are easy to understand, as they are simply the phone directories of the internet, so that each domain name can resolve into an IP address.
Obviously, this isn’t quite enough for a website – as you also need web space, please look at our store for our web hosting plans, and while you are there – you can also buy your dream domain too!
