Website Tutorial – Video 1: Web Hosting and Domain Names

– Video 1 of a series on “Getting Your Website Up”. In this video I walk you through the whole process if choosing and purchasing a web hosting plan, and why you are choosing it. I also show you how to get a FREE domain name registered with your web hosting plan, through IX Webhosting.

I go through basic web hosting terminology such as what DIsk Space means, as well as bandwidth, and why you should change from a shared IP to a Dedicated IP.

I do all of this from scratch, by creating a new IX Webhosting account, so that you can see the steps that I go through, before you do it yourself.

Here are the links from this video (some are my affiliate links, thanks if you choose them!):
IX Webhosting:

oh yeah, that’s it! If you choose this web hosting service, I can be a good resource to ask, if you run into any issues (unless they are to do with the company itself, that I have no control over).

    Most people do not know that EIG own 90% of the hosts online.   They do not own GoDaddy though. 
    Great Video thanks
