2 – How Does a Domain Name and Web-Hosting Work?
Welcome to the second video from this tutorial. In this one, you will learn why you need to have a domain name and a web-host provider for your website. I know when people start out these are two things they find complicated. However, in this video everything will turn crystal clear.
How Does a Domain Name Work?
For you to understand what is a domain name, first we need to talk about IP address also known as Internet Protocol.
Every single machine connected to the Internet this can be: a laptop, static computer, printer etc. Has a particular IP address that looks something like: 22.214.171.124
When one computer needs to get information from another it needs to know its IP address so it can connect.
Let’s say you go to a Prositeutorials.com, what exactly happens?
1. Your computer tries to find the IP address of the server where all the information of Prositetutorials.com is saved.
2. Once your computer has the IP, it connects to its server and retrieves all the information this includes: images, content, etc and you’re able to see Prositetutorials.com website on your screen.
You should see an IP address as a phone number. When you want to talk to someone else you need to know that person’s phone number, same thing happens between computers but in this case to transfer data.
What is a Domain Name?
Just imagine if you wanted to go to Google.com you needed to know its IP address, which looks like: 173.194.45
Later on, you wanted to go to another website and you needed a different IP, wouldn’t it be crazy to remember all these numbers?
I think people would go mad that’s why we have domain names for example:
Because we have an easier time remembering names instead of numbers. In other words, a domain name is an address for a particular website. Every single website on the Internet must have one. In our next videos, I’ll show you how to choose one for free.
What is a Web-host Provider?
For you to put your website on the Internet, you must have a web-host provider. This is nothing more than a company that offers some storing space in their servers so you can save all the files belonging to your website. Also, they will put your website on the Internet so everyone can view it.
My prefered web-host provider is Bluehost. They have a fantastic 24/7 support to help you out, very reliable servers and great uploading time for
