If you would like to create a site, this means that you require a domain. A domain is a human-memorable name that you write in your browser’s location bar when you wish to reach a particular web portal.
This is an issue I introduce due to the fact that a week ago my boss came up with the idea of setting up a site for our new project. That itself is not a problem, the problem is that he needs a web site, but has not made a decision yet about what it should look like, what it should contain, etc. All that he tell to me was the name of the web Domain. Thus, we now have an address for a yet-to-be-established site and nothing else.
Each website is hosted on a physical server. That physical server has its own personal physical address, popular also as an IP address. Accessing a web site by writing the IP address of the machine in your web browser, however, is not the best and most convenient thing to do, so that was how and why domains appeared. So, a domain name corresponds to an IP address on the Internet. Once it has been registered, that is.
To register a domain name, you first need to discover a domain registration provider. NTC Hosting offers an optimal solution for my present and future projects – they provide a Domain Manager plan, which can be easily upgraded to a web hosting plan later on – when my boss finally decides what purpose the website will have.
