You can use a word or phrase as a domain name. If the domain is for a company, you might want to put your company name in the domain, this makes it easier for your customers to find you on the Internet.
Although a longer domain is harder to remember, it can contain more keywords, which is important as some of the search engines use keywords in a domain name as part of the search algorithm. But be careful of domain names that are too long, it makes it difficult to remember and prone to user input mistakes.
If your preferred domain name is not available, try adding a prefix, such as "my" or "the".
And finally, make sure your domain name can be verbally communicated. You do not want to constantly repeat or spell it out.
TLD, or Top-Level Domain, is the part of the domain name on the right of the dot ("."). The most common TLDs are .com, .net, .org.
There are the various types:
gTLD - generic top level domain
uTLD - unsponsored top level domains
ccTLD - country code top level domains
When choosing your domain extension, decide if you are targeting a local country or if you are planning to go international. ccTLDs are an excellent choice if you need to market your business to a certain geographic region.
After you have chosen a domain name, you will need to submit your domain name registration request to a WebXion.
You will need to submit the following information to the WebXion:
Once you have provided us with all these information, we will then initiate the domain name registration process for you. The WebXion will send your domain name request, and the contact and technical information of the domain name to the registry.
The registry files the contact information for the Whois. The registry also adds your domain zone files to the master servers. These master servers tell other servers on the Internet where your website is stored.
Your domain is considered registered and ready-to-use when all information has been updated.
Web hosting is a service that allows organizations and individuals to post a website or web page on to the Internet. A web host, or web hosting service provider, is a business that provides the technologies and services needed for the website or webpage to be viewed in the Internet. Websites are hosted, or stored, on special computers called servers.
When Internet users want to view your website, all they need to do is type your website address into their browser. Their computer will then connect to your server and your webpage will be delivered to them through the browser.
Most hosting companies require that you own your domain name in order to host with them. If you do not have a domain name, WebXion will help you purchase one.
The truth of the matter is these two web server platforms are functionally equivalent, it all depends on what are your hosting needs, and what are you most comfortable with.
Both platforms differ in cost, ease of use, versatility and stability. Windows costs more than Linux.
Allows for running scripts written in PHP, JSP, Perl, Python and other Unix-originated languages. It usually supports MySQL and PostgreSQL databases.
Allows for running ASP scripts and utilizing .NET and other Microsoft technologies. It supports Microsoft SQL Server and Access database.
If your website does not require any scripting support, you should choose Linux hosting because they are more economical. However, if your website needs scripting and database support, you should choose the platform that supports the technologies you use.
Very often web hosts talk about bandwidth and data transfer as the same entity. However, they are in fact, different.
Bandwidth is the amount of data that can be transferred at one time.
Data transfer is the actual amount of data transferred.
Think of it this way. If bandwidth were a tunnel, the bigger the tunnel the more cars can pass through it. Data transfer would then be the number of cars allowed to go through the tunnel in a given time period, say a month.
How it affects your website?
The less bandwidth you have, the slower it takes your website to load, regardless of your visitor's connection type. Visitors will have to wait their turn. The less data transfer you have, the more often you will find your website unavailable because you have reached the maximum amount of data allowed to be transferred.
How much do you need?
You first need to determine what is sufficient for your website to function. You will need to take into consideration the size of your website and the number of visitors you have in a month's time. Your goal is to ensure that all these visitors can view your website without any problem.
Visitors x Avg. page size X Page views x 30 days = your monthly website data transfer
For example, your website consists of 7 pages, and each of these pages consists of text and images. Say, your average page size is 50KB. You expect 60 visitors per day, and each of these visitors will view all 7 pages on your website.
Your monthly website data transfer would then be: 60 visitors X 50KB X 7 pages X 30 days = 630,000KB or 0.630GB/month
Your web host sends you an exceeded bandwidth usage warning, and suggests reducing the size of your web files.
What is bandwidth usage?
This refers to the total amount of information that has been transferred from your web server to your visitors. Each file on your website has a specific size. Your website is the sum of these files. Each time a visitor visits your website, their browser sends a request to your web server, asking for the files. These files are downloaded onto their browser to be viewed.
In other words, the larger your web files, the higher the bandwidth usage. Also, the more requests to your website, the more "bandwidth" you will use.
How can I reduce my "bandwidth usage"?
You certainly do not want to reduce the number of visitors. So, the most effective way is to reduce the size of the files on your website.
Build simpler, more efficient websites.
