Website Hosting

Website Hosting:
the placement of your website onto
the Internet through a server. 

DataCorp specializing in a full range of services including: custom database programming, website design, software products, computer training, networking and technical writing for organizations of all sizes.Once your site is on a server, anyone with Internet access can look at your website - from anywhere in the world, 24 hours a day. In order to have your site hosted on the web, you need to have the following three things:

  • A website - a page or set of pages that is located under the same domain name. HostSearch.com is a website (but you knew that already!) A web page is a computer document written in a publishing language called HTML, as well as other languages. When an Internet user types in your web address, your web server sends the content of your web page to that user.
  • A domain name - a unique text-based address used to locate a specific set of web pages. A domain name is made up of words and/or numbers plus a TLD (top level domain). The TLD for most businesses is ".com", such as www.hostsearch.com; non-profit organizations use ".org"; universities and educational sites use ".edu"; and sites involved with the U.S. government use ".gov". More TLDs are on the way, such as .biz, .pro, .name, .info, etc.
  • An account with a web hosting company, or a server of your own to host your website

A server is a computer that stores information that can be accessed through the network. Servers can also be used to store website information that can be accessed by any computer with a connection to the Internet - and a browser such as Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator, the two most popular web browsers.    

Once your website is complete, it's time to put it on the Internet.

We can arrange to "host" your website either on our server or with an other reliable website hosting company. We'll help you choose from a variety of website hosting plans covering the full range of services, from low volume websites through high-traffic e-commerce sites.
