Build your website

You are building your first website and you don’t know where to start ? 
I hope this page will help you a bit ! 

Concepts

1 – Domain name

A domain name is the address your customer is going to use to reach your website : for instance steven-luong.com

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Domain_name

For a given domain, you could have different subdomain : for instance www.steven-luong.com or blog.steven-luong.com

Once you buy a domain, all the possible subdomain are yours. 

Pricing : This costs in general around 20$/y

2 – Server / Host

A server or host is an actual computer located somewhere in the world (or what people  define as the “cloud”). 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Host_(network)

This website is for example running on a computer in France, provided by OVH

You have plenty of options for providers and can find different benchmarks based on your location and performance needs

Pricing : While it depends on the machine specifications, you could have a server for 100$/y

3 – How are they related ? 

A domain name (and sub domain names) points to a specific server / host

As a business owner, you could have multiple domain names (steven-luong.com, slapps.fr) but pointing to the same server or even the same website

4 – Providers

You therefore have different kind of providers : domain providers, hosting providers, sometimes both (like OVH) 

Some providers also offers some package solutions (domain + hosting + website tools – see below). 

Tools

1 – Wix

2 – WordPress

3 – Others
