Email Services And Server Setups
Also known as webmail, online email service providers enable users to send, receive and review e-mail from their Web browsers. Email services offer easy access and storage of e-mail messages for users who are not connected to the Internet from their usual location.When logging into an email service, users simply enter the Webmail Web site URL in their browser’s address or location field, and use their Webmail account by typing in a username andpassword. Instead of the e-mail being downloaded to the computerused for checking the e-mail account from, the messages will stay on the provider’s server, allowing the user to access all their e-mail messages regardless of what system or ISP is being used.
Web Space And Domain Registraion
The domain name is much like an entry in a phone book. Computers communicate by using numbers, called IP addresses, to contact each other, much like you use a phone number to dial a specific person’s phone. If you want people to find your business’s phone number, you want to be listed in a phone book. The phone book tells people looking for your phone number “Company A’s Phone number is xxx-xxx-xxxx” just as a domain tells people (i.e. their computers) “domainA.com is hosted on the server xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx” Without the domain, you would have to tell your customers “Hey my site is located at 123.456.789.123/~mysite/” instead of “mysite.com” You can see how, without a domain, having a site or hosting is impractical.
The web-hosting or server portion is much like the space that you rent out to have your business in. It’s merely the space itself. It does not include furnishings like shelves for your products, just as the web-hosting account doesn’t include a site for you to sell your products. Luckily, in the web-hosting world, it’s very easy to furnish the space provided by your host, because you can install many framework applications through the Fantastico icon within your C Panel. Without the hosting services, you won’t have a place for your files to reside, so your domain would then become like a disconnected phone number in the phone directory, and your site files would have nowhere to stay.
Web Marketing and Sales Creation
Web marketing refers to a broad category of advertising that takes many different forms, but generally involves any marketing activity conducted online. Marketers have shifted their efforts online because it tends to be significantly less expensive. Many online advertising spaces are free to use. Companies can upload videos to YouTube or start a blog for no cost at all. Other outlets like official websites or paid search marketing cost a fraction of what a major television advertising campaign would.
