Title: Getting Started With Domain and Hosting ?

Getting Started With Domain and Hosting ?
  • If you are new to the word of running a business
    online who are struggling with the process of
    getting their domain and hosting work, then this
    blog will be a great help to you.
  • Step 1 Get a Domain Name
  • First and foremost is to get a Domain Name. Your
    domain name is your brand identity. Your online
    address. Now the question comes how do I choose a
    domain name? As said earlier domain name is
    important. Your customers will type it into a
    browser to get to you. So, it is essential that
    it should be easy to recall. We will advise you
    to keep it short and ignore acronyms or
  • Apart from a domain name, you even have to decide
    on Top-Level-Domain (TLD). Thinking whats this?
    This is the suffix that comes after a domain name
    like .com, .in, .net. .us, etc. Yes,
    .com is the most popular one but the
    availability is till doubtful. In case you are
    fine with the alternative TLDs, just make sure on
    all marketing and branding materials it is
    clearly mentioned. Else people have a tendency of
    remembering .com

  • Once you have chosen a domain name and TLDs, you
    have to register yourself. This can be done via
    one of the numerous domain registrars, however,
    this is also offered when you sign-up for your
    which is the next step, you are going to need.
    But before that, you have to understand what your
    website will need so you can select the right
    hosting plan.
  • Step 2 How to choose a Hosting Plan?
  • Before you start looking for hosting solution,
    you need to figure out what you will be hosting?
    Is it going to be WordPress or something
    custom-made? Will you require specific versions
    of PHP, Windows application or other software?
    Are you expecting high traffic from the onset or
    you suspect it will rapidly grow once your
    website is established?
  • All these questions will help you to understand
    what type of hosting you need. Here are few
    hosting plans you can choose from!

  • Shared Hosting
  • As the name suggests, here you will be sharing
    your server resources. One server and multiple
    tenants. It is similar to rent a flat in a
    building, where you have your space but also
    other people are there. But it is affordable.
    Shared web hosting is the cheapest web hosting
    option. But then it has the least flexibility and
    cant take the load of high traffic. It is a
    great option if you have a basic website on
    WordPress. But in case, you need PHP versions,
    then surely this is not the server for you. Also,
    you cant just install any plugin you want on the
    server or change the operating system, because
    the server isnt only yours.
  • Virtual private servers
  • A higher version of shared hosting is Virtual
    private servers (VPS). In this environment, you
    are still on a server with other people, but a
    limited number of. And the area allocated to you
    is bigger and with more flexibility. Your area is
    set-up as your own little server with the main
    server, providing you more control over what you
    want to run over it. If in future, you feel the
    need for more assets or flexibility, its easy to
    scale up on VPS. But to a certain level only.
  • Unisecure offers best and affordable VPS hosting
    plans in US.

  • Dedicated servers
  • As a name suggest a dedicated server is purely
    yours. Not more sharing! It is just like having a
    bungalow. In the dedicated server, you can
    customize things as per your website. You have
    full control of your server, but remember
    managing a server is your duty. So is the
    security. It takes quite a technical knowledge to
    run a dedicated server.
  • Unisecure provides cheap dedicated server hosting
    with best features ensuring high availability and
    99.995 guaranteed uptime.
  • Step 3 Its time to connect Domain Hosting
  • When you have a domain registered and you have a
    hosting plan set up, youll have to ensure
    theyre connected. If you register your domain
    someplace other than your hosting provider,
    youll have to update your nameservers. Your
    hosting provider will disclose to you what the
    nameservers should be changed to. In case youre
    hosting with us, you can discover this
    information in your customer area.

  • Go to Services gt My Services and select the
    hosting account by clicking View Details. You
    should see this It will likewise be emailed to
    you. When you have your name servers, go to your
    domain registrar to change them. This is
    regularly done in your customer area or control
    panel with domain registrar.
  • Once youve updated the nameservers, it can take
    few minutes to 72 hours to completely
    proliferate. Amid this time, ISPs (Internet
    Server Providers) and servers around the globe
    will see the changes relying upon their TTL (Time
    to Live). When its completely proliferated, your
    website will be live visiting your domain in a
