Hosting and Domain registration

What is a domain?

Think of the Internet or World Wide Web (www) as one huge filing cabinet with billions of drawers. Each drawer has a name and storage space for files and data to be stored. A domain is the name for that specific drawer and tells the user where to find the related information.

Domain names identify a particular Web site and have the following format: www.yourdomainname.co.za. Domain names need to be registered and be unique. Once a domain name is registered it cannot be used by anyone else and you become the owner of that domain name. Domain names need to be renewed every year.

When purchasing your Swenka website you will receive one year’s free domain registration. After one-year, domain renewal will be charged at an annual rate. See rates and prices for more details.

What is hosting?

Hosting is the storage space for your drawer. To have a website you need to buy storage space on the World Wide Web to put all your website files in. When purchasing your Swenka website you will receive one year’s free hosting. After one year, hosting will be charged at an annual rate. Your hosting will also include storage space for your email accounts. Email accounts will be created by yourself on your own dedicated Cpanel.
