Your Web Host

What You Need to Know

In these lessons, I explain exactly what a web host is and recommend some that I know are good and have personal experience with.

I explain what to avoid and direct you to web hosts where you can start with a budget-conscious plan that is surprisingly cheap, but which offers a pathway to accommodate your websites' growth and success. I also cover each host's support services.

Signing up and adding your website to your host's servers is simple with some web hosts but more complex with others. I illustrate the process for the web hosts I recommend.

Finally, I explain how to connect your domain name to your chosen web hosting service. This is called pointing your domain name to your host's domain name servers. This isn't a complex process, but can cause issues for some.

So I illustrate it step-by-step in the next module.
