The basics of webhosting

Let’s say you want to make a website.  Here are a few things you should know / look for when getting hosting and a domain.

  •  cPanel.  cPanel is an web hosting control panel that provides a graphical interface and automation tools designed to simplify the process of hosting a web site.  This makes it easy to setup WordPress or any other content management suite.
  • Who-is privacy.  When you register a domain, you must provide personal information such as your name, address, and phone number.  Unless you buy who-is privacy, people can look up your who-is record and spam you.
  • A good price in exchange for a one year fully paid up front contract can save you big time.  You may be able to pay less than $50 for the whole first year!
  • Unlimited storage and bandwidth.  You should get these in case your website becomes huge and needs it.

Bendy Computers is here to walk you through this process at a fair price, from finding the right service provider, to helping with web design.
