Who hosts websites?
The website hosts are the people or organizations who design the website for the main operators and people who use the website, but there are many occasions where the designers wish for another group or website to host it for it may be too much to manage, so the answer is really it could be anyone who is in direct contact with the company or organization behind it.
How much does it cost?
The prices that it costs for you to become a host of a website can be from nothing for you may be the only provider of the website, or if you have someone else to host it, it may scale from £10 – £100 per month for local hosting, for very big companies you never really know for there is so much legal issues behind it.
What is a domain name and how would you register one?
Domain names are a human friendly version of a website address. By this I mean that if we did not have a domain name then the website would be a load of numbers that no I.T guru could understand,
When choosing your Domain name you should select a term people will use to search for your site. Most obviously, this could be your brand or personal name.
A domain name makes up the address of your site and can end in .com, .net, .org, Info, .us, .biz, and more.
You can register your domain names with big name companies like Register.com and NetworkSolutions.com, it does not really matter who you register with for they all provide the same service but different prices.
