This is your right to use the domain name. Your domain registrar is responsible for telling the Internet where to find your domain servers (see below). Registration is usually renewed every two years, but you can register domain for anywhere between one and ten years if required. Vital IT offers domain registration for $99.00 for two years. You can transfer your existing domain to Vital IT for management free of charge. Renewal at the end of the existing registration period will be processed by Vital IT. To transfer your domain you will need your existing domain registry key, or domain password.
Domain hosting provides you with domain name system servers (DNS servers) which hold the information for your domain such as where your website is and where to deliver your e-mail. Your DNS server publishes your domain information on the Internet much like a web server publishes your website on the Internet. DNS hosting is usually billed monthly. Vital IT offers DNS hosting for $15.00 per month.
Often confused with web hosting. Your web designer creates a website design for you. This is usually a compilation of files in the HTML format. Your web designer is usually responsible for uploading your website to a web server to bring it online. Your web designer requires only your web server address and FTP password to put your website on the Internet. Those details are provided to you when you purchase a web hosting service. Be wary of web designers who say you must host your website on their own hosting service. Some web design companies have been known to impede access to your website HTML files which makes moving to another hosting provider or using a different web designer for updates difficult.
Web hosting is the provision of a web server to which you can upload your website to make it accessible to the Internet. Access to web servers is usually provided by an FTP (File Transfer Protocol) server. When you purchase web hosting you will be given the address of your web server in the form of an IP address (e.g. 188.8.131.52) and an FTP password which you forward to your web designer who will use the details to update your website. Vital IT provides web hosting for $25.00 per month.
This is the server which accepts delivery of your e-mail. Vital IT mail hosting is charged per mailbox. Every person in your organization usually has their own mailbox, however each mailbox can have multiple e-mail addresses. For example, several people might require a email@example.com e-mail address in addition to their own individual e-mail address. The Vital IT Business Pack provides all of the above services from $35.00 per month paid annually. Any or all of the above services can be provided by separate companies. Therefore, if you only need domain hosting and registration services from Vital IT we can provide that without interfering with your existing web and e-mail hosting arrangements.
