Managing Your Domain
Domain management sounds very fancy and slightly intimidating, but in reality, it is just keeping track of your domain names (websites) and the services that host them. Once you’ve got a domain, you’ve already made a huge step in your web presence. Purchasing a domain means that you have reserved that name for a specific amount of time (usually a year), and you will also have to pay a hosting service (a company that puts your website on the Internet) to keep your spot in cyberspace for a specific amount of time (1 to 3 years usually).
It is usually from these hosting services websites that you manage your domains, and many providers have very user-friendly interfaces when it comes to this aspect of website ownership. These hosting services also provide a number of additional services, whether paid or free, that help you once you’ve purchased your site. Once you’ve paid for your domain and host service, it’s time to set up your website and starting managing your domain.
