Because Anttix website packages supply all of the essentials to keep your website running smoothly, people sometimes ask what the difference is between certain components. They particularly want to understand domain registration and hosting.
Domain registration, by definition, is the selection, purchasing, and recording of a unique website address on the Internet. The domain itself consists of all characters between the www and the .(suffix). To find out if a domain name is available, you can easily search the Internet. All domains are managed by the nonprofit Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, or ICANN. While ICANN coordinates and sets up domains, they have little to do with issues or problems that arise with websites.
Once registered, a domain name must be renewed annually, which is automatically handled by Anttix if your site is hosted by us. This is important to know so that you won't be fooled by scams that deceptively alert you that your domain registration is expiring. Of course, safe email practices should always be used as with any unsolicited mail.
Hosting, on the other hand, is simply renting out Internet space from a provider. In this case, quality means everything. Anttix is pleased to offer both domain registration and hosting to our clients. Contact us for details on available packages and pricing, or just to ask a question. Our staff is ready to serve you.
