All About Web Hosting

Your website's host is where all the content for your site is kept, so that it can be visible online. When your site is completed, it is 'uploaded' to your host. Then, when someone types your 'domain name' into an internet browser, your website will appear. Some key information to know about when shopping for a webhost:

Domain Name
  • A domain name looks something like this: www.mywebsite.com.
  • You can purchase a domain name from many locations online. Beware of prices that are too low, however -- domain names should cost about $35.00 per year. Some companies that charge less are providing you with less as well.
  • If you choose Crimson Studios, we will assist you in purchasing your domain name, or purchase it for you for no extra charge.
