So far in our series of Affordable Website Design - in Part 1 we talked about getting a 'domain name' and then in Part 2 we discussed how this domain is 'pointed' to the machine that is 'hosting' the website. Now lets discuss the next important but often overlooked part of your website - the email accounts.
In part one of pieces of a website series we discussed the need to purchase a domain name and then pointing this domain to the machine that is 'hosting' your website.
How exactly do you point to a machine?
The way Domain Name Server (DNS) works is something like this.
1) You as the owner of the domain name have to say which "Name Server" has the correct match of your domain name to a specific ip address.
So, what exactly are pieces for a Affordable Website?
Well, first thing that comes to mind is there is the need to get a 'domain name" - like jazzymarketing.com or jazzymarketing.net .... now we can have domains by country, biz, .name etc as options...but I think for the most part it is best to stick with .com because of the high expectation among the general population for a domain name to end with .com
