How to bind the domain to the host

After paying the hosting (it can also be free of charge) you have to physically place on the hard drive of your hosting server. On this hard disk you copy (set) files on your site. Whatever Visitors can view your site by typing in the browser your domain name – domain and hosting you want to bind.

What would you understand why tethering domain to hosting I draw the general scheme.

If you have bought a domain and hosting in one place – that bind to the domain hosting is usually not necessary (this is done automatically by the hosting).

If you registered your domain name registrar and hosting from host should follow a few steps to bind the domain to hosting:

1. In its hosting account go to the section “domain parking” or “setting domain” and mount it in the specified graph your domain name. Typically, when writing prefixes (http: // and www) are not used.

2. After registration, web hosting, you mail a letter was sent to the DNS-servers (they look like this – ns1.thehost.com.ua), if not, they can ask the technical support web hosting provider. DNS-server, you must register in the domain settings at the registrar.

Please note that after the binding domain to hostinku may take 8 to 24 hours before the domain is bound to hosting.

To choose and buy a domain name

If, hosting over time can be changed, the domain name is acquired once and for a long time. Therefore, the choice of your site should be taken seriously.

Consider what is in the domain name. Take, for example, www.sitename.by. Sitename – This is the name of your site, .by – this domain zone and www shows that this address is a website that Hosted on the Internet. Often, for corporate sites name is the name of the company: masterlink.by, triluck.by, stronghouse.by. Less commonly, in the title-theme site: reshetka.by, drobilka.by.

Name of the site should be easily perceived by the ear and does not cause problems with writing. Even if the main stream of visitors will come to external links and through search engines, it is better when the address of the site you can clearly convey orally – on the telephone, radio, television or in person. For example, if your company name “SPETSSTROYMONTAZH”, then the best option for the name of the site would be ssm.by, and not specstroymontazh.by, because no clear idea how to write it. Someone writes specstroimontaj.by, and someone specstroymontag.by.

Domains must comply with the goals and objectives of the site. For a company operating only in the Belarusian market will be the best choice zone by. Do not skimp and buy for companies such domain name such as .com, .biz, .net. Site type sitename.by gives us a clear view of his affiliation to the Belarusian segment. If the company is working on export, for the Russian market and the CIS will be the best domain zone .ru, and for the rest of the world – .com, which inspires more confidence to foreign partners. An ideal option for companies operating in the Belarusian market, the market of the CIS and Europe, will be the creation of three sites, their placement in the appropriate domain zones .by, .ru and .com, and promotion of these sites in their regions.

Get a domain name for your company.

Free hosting and domain name

In my opinion, it is taboo for companies not only in terms of image, but also in terms of reliability and feasibility. Your site can be removed or not be available for a long time, and there will be nobody to bring a claim. It is the same with the domain name type site name. freehost11.biz, which will not belong to you, and so it is risky to invest in its promotion money. In addition, the sites of this type are difficult to promote.
