What are the things we need to begin

How to register a domain ?

First of all we want to know that what is domain?.domain name is a unique name for a web site for example premjithkk.com. when you type this address on the browsers address bar it leads to my site always. as like our phone number by dialing that number we will get the owner of phone always.Domain name can be register with the help of domain name registration companies. They provide us a interface for searching our domain available for us.There are so many domain registration companies are here some of them are:

We have registerd our domain with the help of domain registration companies. then we are moving to hosting most of the domain registration comapnies provide hosting also. Most of them have compo plans that contains domain and hosting. It is not compulsory to purchase hosting from the same company you purchased domain. We have choice to buy hosting when we selecting a hosting plan we have to take care of some terms and things related to hosting.

Disk Space

Disk space or simple space means the size of the disk you needed to host your files its purely dependend on your sites file size. Normaly a html page is 30kb to 50kb but if it contains image graphics or movies its size increased. Consider one thing too if your site has the facility to upload files or image the disk size needed to allocate them also increases so choose the size by considering all the features of your site. A normal static site need between 10 and 100MB of disk space.

Monthly Traffic

We will use the term band width for this, a small or medium web site will consume between 1GB and 5GB of data transfer per month.
We can calculate the band width needed for our site by a simple formula that is (average page size) X (expected page views per month)
for example 50kb is your average page size and you expect 10000 visiters/month to your site then you can calculate the band width as follows 50 X 10000 = 500000 kb (it is approximatly 500Mb and 0.5 Gb). like this you can calculate the band with needed for your site.

Email accounts

Choose email accounts as much as you need

Hosting server

We want to choose the server is running with the os Windows,Linux or unix?. it is depended on the technology we used to build the site if it is simple html and java script all are suitable. if you developed with .net technology it need IIS Server to run. your build with php UNIX or LINUX is suitable.

Data base

Choose a plan available with data bases according to the behavior of the site

Please beware of atleast these things before geting a domain and hosting. Now we can start hosting your site. If your domain and hosting are from different vendors we have to do some thing before we begin. We want to change the ns record to our hosting name server this will redirect your domain to the hosting space.ns record is look like this ns1.comapnyname.com, ns2.companyname.com. for a new domain it will take a small amount of time other wise high.

We have the capnel details of our hosting using this information we can login to control panel. We can access the control panel of a website by typing the following on the address bar of browser. domainname/cpanel. using our username and password we can login to dashbord. there are somany things are there we are going to file maneger and upload our fle to sever by selecting the file from our local computer.most of the server support .zip,.tar etc extension of the file so compress your file and upload to server. extract that files from server and configure the data base if you have the date base with your project. if data base is there you can find data bases tab for configure your data base.

We can also upload the file using ftp clients like file zill, core ftp or smartftp we can caonnect the ftp client to server by providing domain name or host name, user name and password. and just drag and drop the files to the server.

The hosting process is as simple as this. I know you have doubts please feel free to contact me I’ll explain…
