Frequently Asked Questions
What is a domain name?
A domain name, like www.domain.com, is an easy way to remember the address of a website. All websites have an IP address like 126.96.36.199 for example. This is awkward and hard to remember so domain names are used to make it easier. You no longer have to remember the numerical address of a website in order to reach it.
Advanced Domain Name Description: A domain name represents a physical point on the Internet — an IP address. The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) governs coordination of the links between IP addresses and domain names across the Internet. With this standardized coordination, you can find websites on the Internet by entering domain names instead of IP addresses into your Web browser.
How do domains work?
Your domain name and its associated IP address are stored in a common database along with every other domain and associated IP address that are accessible via the Internet. When you enter a domain name into your browser, it queries this database to find out where to locate the website that you want to see and then uses the answer that it gets to take you to the website that you want to visit.
What do I do with a domain name once it has been registered?
Registering a domain name does not automatically connect it to a website. You have to upload your web pages to a computer that is connected to the internet 24×7 to host your pages. Once you have reserved a domain, order a hosting account from us and add your new domain to that hosting account. You will be provided with instructions on how to connect your domain to your newly acquired hosting space.
