If you are new, you might wonder that what is domain and hosting right? Domain is your website address name, such as www.wpcolt.com for my website – wpcolt.com is the domain. Hosting is place that we store our website files and database. As we keep our website file and database somewhere the data able to be accessed by anyone 24 hours.
Get Started, First Step – Get a Hosting + Domain
I would recommend Hostgator Hosting. When you choosing the hosting is the most important step for your website. As we need a stable hosting and reliable hosting company to store our website files. If the hosting is not good and frequently having intermittent downtime, that will be problem for you. This is because your website visitor will not able to access your website when there is a down time. This not only will cause your website visitor frustrated, but also will lower your website ranking in search engine such as Google. This will affect your Search Engine Optimization SEO. You will hard to rank your website in higher position on search engine.
