What do you know about hosts and domains?
The first step to entering the world of the Internet and starting your own online business is to understand the concepts of hosts and domains.
What is a domain?
Domain has a very simple meaning. Domain is the URL of your site. In fact, the domain is the same address that you enter in your browser to enter the site.
The domain consists of two main parts: the domain name and its extension. You must first register your desired domain. To register a domain, you can use numbers, letters, or a combination of both. When a user wants to view your site, they must enter your site’s domain address in their browser.
You can choose the domain name based on your taste and the content of the site. Domain name by “.” It is separated from its suffix. Extensions fall into two categories: international and national. You can choose the appropriate extension to suit the field of activity of the site and your opinion. For example, .ir is an example of an Iranian national extension and .com is an example of an international extension.
The point to keep in mind is that each domain can only be registered once, and if a domain is already registered and owned by another, it is not possible to register it. So your website domain is a unique domain.
Now that you are familiar with domain definition, let’s move on to host definitions.
What is a host?
The host is in fact the local (spatial) web host on which the website information is placed and by this means the user can view the website through communication with it.
In order for a user to be able to view and access your website 24 hours a day, your information must be on a device that is connected to the Internet 24 hours a day. So you should check the hosting information that you can get guidance from our experts. Such a device that is connected to the Internet 24 hours a day is called a server. Servers can be shared or dedicated.
Depending on the site you design and the features that your site needs, you choose the type of host. In addition, you can choose the server in the country or abroad, depending on the field of activity of the site.
To manage your site hosting, you will be given the required permissions, including username and password, to access the web control panel. One of the most important factors for choosing a host is the ease of operation and the control panel features of the host you choose. Note that DNSs are semi-servers that communicate between hosts and domains.
