How to Host a Website in JAMAICA...
In order to launch your website online, you’ll need a domain name and a web hosting account. But what are these and how do you get them? In this quick guide I’ll explain both and walk you through the process of setting up your own.
What's a Domain Name?
Put simply, this is the name of your website or brand. It’s the human-readable web address you enter into your search bar in order to access a site. The domain of our company for example is bestwebdesignjamaica.com.
What's a Web Host?
A web host provides the storage space for your website files. This includes all the text, images, videos and all other content you display on your webpages.
How to Purchase a Web Hosting Account
There are a number of things to consider when choosing a web host. You have to think about things like storage space, the ability to easily upgrade, the customer support etc.
While there are companies providing web hosting services locally, we have found much better support from other third party companies. One of the hosts we recommend to most of our clients is Siteground. Below are the steps to sign up with them.
