I'm Kelly Karnetsky, website designer with springshosting.com and today I'm going to tell you how to register a website. Now that you're done making your website you need to put it out on the Internet. In order to do that you need to get a domain. A domain is what people go to to get to your website. So in order to get a domain first you need to come up with a name, mycompany.com, mycompany.net, whatever you want and then we need to find out if it's available or not. So in order to find out if it's available you need to go to a web host or a domain registrar and these websites have a search so you can search and find out if it's available. So you type in mycompany.com and it's available, great you're done. You just buy it and then you've got yourself a domain, and then you can register your website with that. If not, nine times out of ten those people will not sell, so you're just going to have to start over and find a new domain. Now what does a domain actually do? A domain is just a short mask for IP and the IP is something like 123.123.123.123. Now you don't want people to remember that, it's going to be a pain. So what they did is they came out with these domains and when you type in a domain it goes to what is called a DNS server or a domain name server and this domain name server then takes that URL and then converts it over to that IP address without you ever seeing it and pointing it to your website. It's as simple as that, but you don't even need to know how that works. I'm Kelly Karnetsky, website designer with Springs Hosting and you just learned how to register a website.
