How To Assign Domain Name To Website Hosting
When you purchase a domain name, you will have to manage where to point the Nameservers in order to host your website with your domain. Here are the instructions on how to point your domain name from your Domain Registrar to your Hosting Company.
• You will need to find the Nameservers by asking your hosting provider for the details.
• Once you have accumulated the Nameserver details, you will have to enter them into the DNS section of your domain name in your Domain Registrar.
• You will then need to assign your domain name in your hosting account to capture the domain.
History of Website Hosting?
Website hosting companies provide servers for people or businesses to host their website on. In the older days, people used to host websites on their own computer, but this could not sustain anymore as normal computers would be overloaded with the number of connections established and crash completely. This is where hosting companies came to life and introduced an easy and fast way to host your website.
How To Apply For Hosting and the Costs Involved
Website hosting is also affordable. You could pay R50 per month to host one or more websites depending on the packages offered by the hosting company. Many hosting providers offer software utilities for users to build websites, protect their websites, with anti-virus software, and even create email accounts with associated domain names.
Web Hosting and SEO
It's important to use high-quality servers when hosting your website. With regards to SEO, if your hosting company provides low-quality servers, it could negatively affect your ranking position on Google. Google has made it clear it wants websites to load quickly onto users devices, and if your hosting company is responsible for providing slow and unreliable servers, it will result in your website ranking low on Google due to slow loading times.
