Domain Name Search Assistance

Not yet decided on a name for your web site. Alberta Web Designs can help with this and assist you in finding out availability of possible domain names.

Domain Name Registration

The first step in building a website is registering a domain name. Whether you register your name with a registrar or your web host (who will register your domain name through a registrar for you) is merely a matter of convenience and preference. When a name is registered you are purchasing the right to the use of that name for the agreed amount of years at registration, usually 1-10 years. No one else may use that name with your specified extension (.com, .ca, .net) until you either let the name expire or you sell it to someone else.

Web Hosting

A web hosting service is a type of Internet hosting service that allows individuals and organizations to make their own website accessible via the World Wide Web. A host is the company who actually provides the hardware, servers, backbone connections, backup system etc, where your web site is housed. It is their job to make sure your web site is available to site visitors on the world wide web around the clock 365 days of the year.
