What is a domain name? Your domain name is a key part of your online address, and is what your visitors will use to find you easily. For example, Oracom’s domain name is oracom.co.ke Your domain name is unique to you; once you have registered it, nobody else can register the same one for as long as you continue to renew it.
What is hosting? When you make a website and want other people to see it, you will need to publish (or upload) it with a web hosting service. Web hosting services work by storing your website files in high-powered computers (web servers) connected to a very fast network. When someone types in your web address (such as www.oracom.co.ke ), the Internet connects to the web server holding your website files and then transfers your website information back to their computer. From there they can surf and view the pages of your website.
Anything related to managing these servers and its software, security, support, bandwidth, speed and so much more, is what we are all about! Because we provide web hosting services to over a million websites, we have special data centers that are built from the ground up to serve the purpose of web hosting.
How Often do I renew my domain and hosting? Most clients prefer annual renewal of their domain and hosting services but it is possible to renew your domain and hosting for even 10 years and beyond depending on your hosting provider.
