Many people can get confused about what these three simple things are and most of the time, embarrassed to even ask. Well, have no fear, Deem-it! Is here! The best example to use when it comes to what is a domain, hosting and an SSL is to say, “let’s compare these to your home”.
Your domain name is the address to your house, your humble abode… your website. When you have a party and invite friends and family over, you provide them with the address to where the party is located. RIght? Well, your domain name is your home address.
When choosing a domain name for your website, you also need to know what extension you will choose to go with it. Which by the way, there are thousands of domain extensions to choose from. Choosing the best one for your website can be a huge advantage. Also, choosing a domain extension that is familiar to people, will also be more helpful for your online business.
The most popular extensions for domains are; .com, .net, .co, .us and for non profit organizations, .org.
Because choosing a domain and a relevant extension is an essential need, Deem-it! will help you with that. If you are searching for the perfect domain for your business, search no further, you’ve come to the right place. Start searching for your perfect domain match today.
So what’s the point of hosting if you have a website you ask? Well, you need a place to park your house. You see, if the website is your house and the domain is the address to your house, it only makes sense that the hosting for the website is the equivalent of the land that your super cool pad sits on.
When you search websites on the internet and you take a gander at the search bar to see where you are, have you noticed that little padlock to the left of the domain? That my friend, is the SSL Certificate. SSL stands for Secure Socket Layer.
To keep it simple, the SSL acts like a layer of protection for your website (your home). Kind of like a privacy fence or curtains so burglars (or hackers) can’t see what’s going on inside. It ensures that all of the data passed between the browser and the web server remains private. This is important to have, especially if you are collecting personal information from your visitors
There’s so much more to SSL Certificates but for now, we will keep it simple Deem-it!
