Web Hosting is absolutely essential If you would like to have a website published online for the world to see. A common thought is that registering a domain name is all that is needed to have your website online. Yes, a domain name is an important part of the puzzle as this is the address your visitors will type into their browsers to access your site. Web Hosting, on the other hand, is what makes it possible for your web site to be accessed by your visitors.
Web hosting is essentially the space you buy on a server that stores all the pieces that make up your websites. Once you your website is hosted by A2 Hosting, your visitors will be able to access your site by typing your domain name into their internet browser. Their computer is then connected with the server where your site is being hosted. The server then delivers the files that comprise your website to your visitors' browsers so they can view your site.
You'll have an easy time getting started with your new Web Hosting account! After you have purchased your A2 Hosting Web Hosting package, you will be sent a Welcome Email with login details to the My A2 Hosting control panel. My A2 Hosting includes everything you need to manage your Web Hosting account. You will find important information in your control panel including:
Publishing Your Website
To publish your web site's files so your audience can view it, upload the files to your account's public_html directory. You are able to update your web site files whenever you want to. However, your audience will not be able to view any files not included in the public_html directory (or within the subdirectory beneath public_html).
Configuring Your Domain Name
If you have a domain name that was not purchased from A2 Hosting that you would like to use with your A2 Hosting account, you will need to update that domain's nameservers (DNS). You won't have to do this if you bought your domain from A2 Hosting. It has already been done for you.
The nameservers and their IP addresses are listed in the Product Details of My A2 Hosting. The nameservers for your web hosting account are ns1.a2hosting.com, ns2.a2hosting.com, ns3.a2hosting.com, and ns4.a2hosting.com.
