What is web hosting?
Web hosting allows businesses, organizations, and individuals to make their websites or apps visible on the internet. Whether they're using a dedicated server, or sharing resources, every website is hosted on a server. The only way for a website to be visible on the internet is if it's hosted by a web hosting service provider, also known as a web host. In order to find a website, you type the domain name (or URL) into your browser. Your computer will then connect to the server where the website is hosted, and the webpage is delivered onto your screen.
How Do I Buy a Domain Name?
Buying a domain name with Entrenovu is simple and comes with features that a lot of other hosts don't offer. Use our domain search tool to buy your desired domain name; we'll let you know if someone else has already purchased it, and will serve up alternative versions that are available.
After buying your domain name with Entrenovu, you'll also receive:
+ Free WHOIS Privacy Protection (which keeps your website registration details private)
+ auto-renewals (so you don't have to worry about a lapse in ownership)
+ unlimited subdomains (like blog.yoursite.com, or mexico.yoursite.com, for example)
+ domain setting controls at your fingertips (like MX records, CNAME, etc.)
How Do I Migrate Over to Entrenovu?
If you want to move your web hosting to Entrenovu, the first step is to create a Entrenovu account – you can do that from any of our product pages (Shared Hosting, VPS, Dedicated, Cloud) During the signup process, select the option to add your current domain to your new account – don't worry, this does NOT affect your current live website!
Next, you'll need to backup your website files and upload them to Entrenovu Host. You can learn more about this.
Once you've migrated your website to Entrenovut's servers, you'll need to check the site to confirm that it looks and functions just as intended. If everything looks great, you'll need to point your DNS to Entrenovu so people know where to find you! If this sounds complicated, don't worry. We have some documentation.
