04 May WHAT IS DNS AND HOSTING AND WHY DO I NEED THEM?
There are two things we will need from you to create your website:
• your DNS and;
• your hosting details.
Your Domain Name Server (DNS) is your domain name or URL. Think of it as your website’s street address.
For example, our URL is: https://thedesignorder.com.au
If you purchased your domain name you would have created an account to do so. We’ll need access to your username and password for this account in order to push your site live.
Your hosting is the server space you purchase to house your site’s files. Think of this as the combination of your house and utilities. Your hosting will make sure everything on your site has a place and that your site has energy to run smoothly.
