SAT 008: Connect Domain Name to Hosting Server
CLICK HERE TO WATCH ON YOUTUBE
Once your domain name is registered, you need to connect it to a hosting server to start your online presence.
Domain name and hosting servers are both important components of a website.
Every website is linked from a hosting server. The Hosting server represents as a house that stores all your images, video, text, audio, and other related media that is viewed in your website.
When you buy a hosting server, domain names are free for a year or lifetime (It totally depends on the provider). Or when you buy a domain, you can also buy a hosting server within that same provider. These are the common scenarios but it is also perfectly possible to buy a domain name from one provider, and a hosting server from another provider.
I personally recommend this.
There’s a lot of domain registrars, Namecheap is my favorite. As the brand name applies “the name is cheap”.

And for this episode, I used WebHostingPad as my hosting server. The steps are the same for all other hosting servers so I hope this would guide you at least.
Hosting Server is a generic term for a type of server that host or houses websites, applications and services. This is where your files including images, video, text and related data are stored to access your website.
