Intro

Want to build your online presence? So maybe you own a business, and you want to expand it to the next level. Or maybe, you are a skilled person who wants to sell his services online. Or you may be a developer or blogger who wants to make his website to earn passive income out of it. There may be any other reason too, but 90% of the people come under these 3 categories.

I will be keeping this post very simple and basic. And writing it from the perspective of a very beginner in the field of internet. So that, one can easily understand everything from what is a website, hosting, domain to how you can build your own website. So keep stuck to this post.

What things should I know before starting a website?

Well, if you are not aware of a single thing about how websites are built and how to host them online. No need to worry. Because it’s just a piece of cake. You even don’t need to be a great programmer. Nowadays you can easily create your website by just dragging and dropping with the mouse.

So there are basically two things that are important to start your own website. The first one is the domain name and the second one is the hosting server. Do not get panic, if you are hearing these terms for the first time. Let me break it down, so that you can easily understand.

What Is Hosting?

Not going deep into technical details. Just to make you understand, let us take an example. You want to make your house. But for that, you have to buy a certain land. On which you will make your home according to yourself. Now the land may cost you differently according to the location, size, etc.The same thing is with Hosting server. On Hosting servers, you buy certain space to build and host your website on that server. Isn’t it simple? Well, yes.

What is Domain Name?

Domain name is much simpler to understand. You will be visiting a lot of sites daily. How do you visit those websites? By entering a certain address in the browser like www.google.com or www.Facebook.com etc. So these are called domain names. Like in the previous example of the house. When we make our new home in any place.

Then we are given with a home address, so that anyone willing to meet us, can visit us by address. The same concept is in the domain name. Anyone can visit your website by just typing your domain name in the browser.

So Now I hope now you know what domains and hostings are. Now let us head toward some of the best domain names and hosting providers in the market.

Best Hosting And Domain Providers?

Maybe you were thinking, why the hell does it matters? Actually, it matters a lot. Most of the newbies, without knowing about various providers. Simply buy hostings from anyone in the market. So what’s the problem? Well, most of the time, they are overcharged for the hosting, and even they did not get the proper uptime of the website and support from the provider.

So It is very necessary to know about the leading providers in the market, and then buy from them.And we do not want you to get scammed or ripped when you are buying hosting server for your new website.

 So here we are recommending you some of the best hosting providers in the market. I have personally used all of them for a minimum of 1 year. And totally satisfied with them.

#1Godaddy

Well, I believe this doesn’t need any introduction. It is one of the top domain and hosting providers in the industry. And especially if you are from India, then you may have already seen their ads on television. Their marketing team has made it possible and popular. But they never compromised with the quality and support that they offer to the customers.

Their support system is of the next level. You can contact them anytime via email, or phone. And they are best for the new beginners in website building.

The other major reason is their user-friendly pricing. Here I am only talking about the hosting part. You can check out their pricing table below. The best thing is that they offer you a free domain if you buy their shared hosting. Additionally, they come with various plans for shared hosting with WordPress hosting if you need.

#2 Ipage Hosting

Ipage Hosting is also one of the famous hosting and domain provider. We consider it as the best alternative to GoDaddy. It also has very beginners friendly pricing. Also, they provide you with a free domain name for a year if you buy a hosting plan from them.

#3 a2 Hosting

A2 Hosting is one of those hosting providers who is leading the industry. This is more than a decade old. They are running from 2003, means they are fully trusted. A2 hosts provide you a vast range of hostings including VPS, Shared, Cloud.

They provide you with a lot of extra perks facilities such as free website migration, free SSL security, Free SSH and list goes on. Their pricings are also very flexible, and totally worth if you consider it with their support and features. Below you can check out their pricing table.

 So if you are a new beginner too and want to create your website then, I think Shared hosting plan best suits you. Because in the initial days of your website, you will not be having so much traffic. And when your traffic starts to increase, you can anytime switch for higher plans or for VPS.
