Cerberus Designare a small design house and we like it that way. Our customers are predominantly small and medium size businesses and we pride ourselves in giving a more personal service to all of our customers. The world wide web is a big and scary place, and the technology connected to the internet is wide and varied. Here at Cerberus we don’t know everything about the internet and we are not afraid to admit it. We like to stay in our little corner of the internet and stick with what we are good at.
What are we good at? We’re good at keeping it simple and protecting our customers from the complexities of having and running a website. We are just a phone call (or email) away.
A domain name is an address on the internet. Just as your street address must be unique so that the post office can deliver mail to you, and your telephone number must be unique so that customers can call you, your domain name must be unique so your e-mail reaches you and customers can visit your website.
An international address system, called the Domain Name System (DNS) was developed to ensure that every computer connected to the internet has its own address. In the DNS system, however, that address is actually a set of numbers such as 126.96.36.199 which is called the computer’s Internet Protocol (IP) address. Because these numbers are difficult for humans to remember, DNS allows you to assign a domain name such as google.com to your IP address.
Now when you want to visit Google’s Web site you can type www.google.com instead of 188.8.131.52
Well here is the WIKIpedia definition…
In short it is a bunch of files that together show some information to someone browsing the internet. It can be as complicated or simple as you desire.
Your website files have to live somewhere. They exists on a computer that is accessible 24-7. This type of computer is called server and it has an IP address just as described above.
Having someone else (like us!) host your website means you don’t have to set up a complicated web server on your own computer, nor do you have to leave it running all day and night as you would if you were doing the hosting yourself.
