The two steps to getting your website 'live' on the web

  1. Register your domain.
  2. Rent some server space.

1. Registering your domain

There are many companies out there that allow you to register the domain name for your website. Prices vary, as does the quality of service, but at the end of the day, they all handle the details of getting your domain name listed in the giant address book I spoke about earlier.
These days, you will find many of the names you may be interested in registering are already taken. As I mentioned above, domain names have to be unique and many have been slurped up.

2. Renting server space to 'host' your website

When renting space on a server so that it can serve your website on the World Wide Web, it is often called 'hosting'. Companies that provide this service are often called 'host' or hosting companies.
After you registered your domain, all you need to do it contact a hosting company and tell them you want to host you website and that you have a proper domain name. They will guide you through the process and you should be live on the web in no time!
