How to create a website ?

Wether you are new to web design or just want to refresh you knowledge, you’ve come to the right place


Choosing your host


What is a Web Host ? Web hosts is a companie that provide space on a server owned or leased for use by clients, as well as providing Internet connectivity, typically in a data center.

What is a Domain ? A domain is a name that points to a given IP address, example DynastyHoster.com is 23.235.223.48 (The latter will show a warning because our SSL certificate will no recognise it). Replacing DynastyHoster.com with 23.235.223.48 will lead you to the same website. When you buy a domain to an organism, your registrar registers it at every major internet nodes so that writing the name resolves to the IP address.

How does these two come together ? Your Webhost will provide you with a website that will be accessible over then internet at a given IP address. Then you configure your domain to resolve to your website IP adress and you’re online !

 

Settle for the Best


When it comes to building websites, your host will be your foundations. A proper host should provide you with enough services that you cannot run out of possibility during your design, some of these requirement are :

  1.  Storage space : It can be either HDD or SSD. SSD are significantly faster than HDD devices because they don’t have mechanical moving parts.
  2.  Bandwidth : As your website will grow, you don’t want to reach a bottle neck to your business because your host is limiting your traffic.
  3.  Variety of Apps : At first a WordPress website could be what you are looking for, however in the long run you could want to use something else. Your web host sould have a variety of apps to fit your future needs.
  4. Combined domain and Web host : This is not a necessity but can make things a lot easier because you can manage all of your website from the very same place.
