Question by : I need to know stuff about Websites and hosting?
Answer by Sean S
Websites are created by website designers. The websites are then stored on servers (computers with an internet connection that are on 24/7).
Domain names (.com, .co.uk, .com.au) are purchased or leased through a domain name supplier. Domain names point to the server that the website is on.
So when you type google.com into the address bar of your browser, you are being linked to googles server, which displays the website.
If you are looking for a domain name, search ‘Domain Name’ in google and click the first link that comes up – as it is usually a reputable brand.
‘Cloud’ computing is just a marketing buzzword created by companies. All it is, is a collection of servers that store your data.
