Also called a URL (uniform resource locator), a web domain is the “address” of a website. Not including the protocol used, a web domain includes two main parts: the name and the domain extension. Using ElkHornhosting.com as an example, “ElkhornHosting” is the name and “.com” is the domain extension. Both elements are required for a web browser to connect with a web server.
A domain registrar is a company that manages domain registration records. Domain registration records contain important information about the domain and control where requests for content from that domain are directed.
A web host is a company that makes websites available on the internet for others to visit. “Web host” may also be used to refer to the domain name of such a company. Web hosts make websites available by putting website content on computers (web servers) with which other internet users can connect.
For the sake of convenience, some companies serve as both domain registrars and web hosts. But it is important to remember that a domain’s registration and its web hosting are two independent things. Company A may manage a domain’s domain registration record, while Company B serves as the domain’s web host.
After repeated hosting outages, I switched my hosting to Aspen. They got my websites transferred and running again quickly!
Aspen has hosted and maintained my website since 2008 and I have always been pleased with their quick response and reliability.
I’ve had nothing but good experiences with Aspen’s hosting and website services. Their promptness and attention to detail truly set them apart.
Since 2009, I’ve worked with Aspen to host and service several domains for multiple businesses and initiatives. Excellent work.
