What Is A Hosting Service?
To make your website visible to the world, it has to be hosted on a web server. Hosting Services are companies that provide space on a server owned or leased for use by clients, as well as providing internet connectivity, typically in a data center.
We recommend that you buy your domain name separate from your hosting service. This makes it much easier if need be, to change your domain name or server in the future. Many hosting services offer a free domain name with the purchase of your hosting service (most are only free for the first year anyway). Don’t do it. Purchase your domain name before opening your Hosting Services account. Make sure the Hosting Service has an easy installation button for WordPress. We charge a $200 fee to install WordPress on servers that do not accommodate WordPress easy installation. That is one of the reasons why we recommend Bluehost. Installation is easy and their customer service is top notch.
