FAQ

Here are the answers to some Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs):

What Is A Domain Name?

A domain name is the address of your website, and it is how people find your website. For instance, Google’s website is Google.com.

All domains must be registered and paid for through a domain name registrar.

What Is A Web Host?

All websites have to run on a computer somewhere. These computers are known as web servers.

Web servers have special requirements, different from your typical home computer. They have to be more powerful than your typical home computer, and they have to stay on all the time.

Most people find it easier to purchase space on a shared web server to host their website, than to try and run a web server at home.

What is the difference between WordPress.Org and WordPress.com?

WordPress.com offers free websites that WordPress hosts. They take care of backups, setup, and security. However, they do not offer support, and you are very limited in how you can customize your site.

WordPress.org is the home of the WordPress software. By taking this software and installing it on your own web host, you take complete control of how your site looks and responds.
