Website Domain and Hosting

Dealing with Domain and Hosting issues can be difficult and complicated for most people who need an online presence. I have made it easier for my clients to navigate through this crucial step by taking care of this entire process and becoming a provider of these services. Please see the details below for what your hosting account will entail.

WHAT IS THE DOMAIN NAME?

The domain name is simply what the user will type in the address bar of the browser to access your site. For example, google.com is a domain name. You can have .com, .org, .net and many other domain name extensions.

WHAT IS HOSTING

Every website that runs on the internet has to be accessed from a computer. The Web Host stores all the files, databases, domain specific email addresses, etc, that is associated with your website. So the domain name is just a pointer to the host where the website actually is.

WHAT IS MANAGED HOSTING

This is a very unique hosting package to fill the void that most website designers and web hosting companies do not pay attention to. Your website will be monitored for security and performance issues, all site software will be kept up to date, backups will be taken, corrective measures will be taken and you will be notified if necessary if additional action needs to be taken. When these measure are not taken your site becomes increasingly vulnerable to security issues.

WHAT IS SSL ALL ABOUT

When you land on a website page that has a form, after that form is filled-in and you hit ‘submit’, the information you just entered can be intercepted by a hacker on an unsecure website.

This information could be anything from details on a bank transaction, to high-level information you enter to register for an offer. In hacker lingo, this “interception” is often referred to as a “man-in-the-middle attack.” The actual attack can happen in a number of ways, but one of the most common is this: A hacker places a small, undetected listening program on the server hosting a website. That program waits in the background until a visitor starts typing information on the website, and it will activate to start capturing the information and then send it back to the hacker. Scary stuff that is no longer just is sci-fi movies.

But when you visit a website that’s encrypted with SSL, your browser will form a connection with the webserver, look at the SSL certificate, and then bind together your browser and the server. This binding connection is secure so that no one besides you and the website you’re submitting the information to can see or access what you type into your browser.

This connection happens instantly, and in fact many suggest is now faster than connecting to an unsecure website. You simply have to visit a website with SSL, and voila: Your connection will automatically be secured.
