Benefits of Microsoft Azure and Amazon AWS
For those not in the know, web hosting is a service that allows you to post your website onto the internet.
Let’s say you’d like the website address, or domain name, www.myamazingwebsite.co.uk.
A web hosting service provider (like us), can firstly tell you if it’s available. If it is, we can purchase it, and then provide the technology and services needed for your new website to be viewed by others on the internet.
Websites are hosted, or stored on servers, which are basically just really big computers. When someone wants to view your website, they just need to type your domain name into their browser. Their computer then immediately connects to the server where your website is hosted, and ping, your website pops up on their screen, just like that! Magic…
But did you know that computers can’t actually read? They can only communicate in numbers. This is why we have IP addresses, which look like this: 127.33.54.200. I think you’d agree that you’d have trouble remembering a series of numbers for every website you wanted to visit!
This is why the Domain Name System, or DNS, exists. DNS allows humans to use easy to remember names, rather than IP addresses, to access different websites, or resources on a network.
CompTech IT solutions provide a DNS management service. This tells the server where to direct your web-based traffic, and also gives you massive computing power, as we use data centre resources to power traffic across your website, applications, and networks.
