Setting Up my Domain & Hosting (Plus Coupons for Savings)
I’m back people :-)

 

I want to discuss two things today:
1) My domain name and registration and hosting
2) My choice for platform

I get that a lot of this will be new for you, and more than anything it may be slightly confusing, and technical, but I’ll walk you through it all. ;-)

 

For starters, a domain name is the name you put into the browser in order to find a website, or web page, or blog. In my case, my domain name is www.sillyme.me and it points to this very blog. In simple terms, it’s not much different than a personal phone number, which we are all used to, and has been around since the late eighteen hundreds. The end of the domain is called Top Level Domain or TLD’s for short. It’s like the area code of a telephone number, and identifies what kind of website you are in a really general way. For example, regular websites end with Dot Com (.com) and educational domains end with DOT EDU (.edu) while government domains end in DOT GOV (.gov). There are many regulations with domains, and there are specific institutions called registrars that govern the domain industry.
