In this blog post, I want to briefly explain three common website terms: domains, hosting, and WordPress.
A member over in my Facebook community recently asked a question: “What is a web host and what is WordPress?” This is a very common question and many people answer it in different ways but here’s my simple definition:
The easiest way for me to explain web hosting is to compare it to a home. Your web hosting is the plot of land that your home will be built on.
Think of your domain name or website URL as your street address. It’s what people type in their web browser to find you.
And last but not least, is the home, which is your website.
WordPress is a website-building software you can use to build your online home.
Once you’ve gathered all of your materials, you need someone to bring your vision to life and get your website up and running.
If you’re tech-savvy and have the free time and patience to learn new software, you can head over to this Bookkeeping Website DIY Guide for an overview of what to expect.
If you prefer a done-for-you option, request a free proposal and we’ll schedule a consultation. I’m always happy to help!
