There are two options for individuals considering what type of server to use for their websites. First, if you are willing to make an investment of time and money, it is possible to host your website on your own server. The easier, and more common option, is to utilize an Internet Service Provider (ISP). An ISP, such as Yahoo web hosting, allows you, for a fee, to store your website on its server.

What Type of Server Should I Use?

There are two options for individuals considering what type of server to use for their websites. First, if you are willing to make an investment of time and money, it is possible to host your website on your own server. To manage this, you must expect to buy expensive hardware and to have a high-speed internet connection. In addition, you must pay for a server license, be prepared to provide your own time and labor to maintain your hardware and software, and you must have the expertise to remove viruses and deal with other problems that may occur.

The easier, and more common option, is to utilize an Internet Service Provider (ISP). An ISP, such as Yahoo web hosting, allows you, for a fee, to store your website on its server. It provides the advantages of high speed internet connections, 24 hour support for your website, and often provides backup servers as a means of ensuring that the websites it hosts will have a minimum amount of downtime.

How Do I Register a Domain Name?

Most web hosting companies, like Yahoo, provide domain name registration services, as well. Yahoo and other web hosting companies allow you to search for available domain names and to choose from a variety of domain name extensions, the most common being .com and .net. You should come up with an idea for a short, relevant, and easy to remember domain name, and then verify that it is available. At that point, you may register your domain name with the company of your choice.

How Do I Build My Website?

First, you need to determine what type of website you want to create. If your website will be a static, or simple, website that will change only if you edit it yourself, you can use software such as Dreamweaver or Frontpage. In addition, Yahoo and other web hosting companies often will provide free site building tools as part of their web hosting services. If your website will be a dynamic site such as a forum or blog, you will need to install a web application such as WordPress or Gallery. Web hosting companies like Yahoo often will install the web application you choose as part of their web hosting services, as well.
