A website is a great way to turn an idea into something tangible. Many people also see this as one of the first steps when starting a business. However, there are still many questions about what exactly is needed for a company’s website. Because with only a domain, the work is not finished yet. That’s why we’ve laid out the basics in this article so you know exactly what to do when building your business website.
Hosting for your website
Building a website can be compared to building a house. To receive guests you need a plot of land, an address and, of course, the house itself. A server room can be compared to a plot of land, also known as hosting. The server can serve multiple clients. You share space, computing capacity, and memory with others. If there are sites that require large capacity, this may affect other sites that use this server. This is also known as shared hosting. With VPS Hosting – Virtual Private Server – You have a portion of the server for yourself. This server is more powerful for this and has a lot of memory. With VPS hosting, you can also share the server with others, but these spaces are separated from each other. This ensures that you have complete control over your virtual server and that you have all the amplitude that reaches your vibration.
Domain name and start building!
The “plot” where you place your website has a unique address, also known as an IP address. This long string of numbers indicates the part of the server where your website is located. However, typing the IP address is of course not user friendly for visitors, so domain names are used for this. A domain name indicates an IP address, but is easy for people to remember, assuming you’re registering a short, recognizable domain name. Finally, the website must be created. You can do it yourself or do it yourself. If you choose to do it yourself, count on it going to take some time. Fortunately, with systems like WordPress, things are going much faster than before.
In addition to the website, it is also useful online store To store or backup important documents, for example. A big advantage compared to a physical hard drive is that you can always access your documents as long as you have internet and you can’t actually lose your online storage. When choosing online storage, keep in mind that you are choosing a package with enough space in gigabytes. Phone cameras, for example, are getting better and the photos and videos you take are getting bigger and bigger. 4K video can easily occupy hundreds of megabytes of space. So it is wise to go for at least 500GB.
