Getting Started with Domains, Web & Email

Planting your “flag/domain” on the Internet

Internet Best Practices –
Separate registrar, Separate DNS,

Separate web host, Separate eMail host”

1 – Domain Registration – acquire your domain

Manage your domain names at a Domain registrar, not your hosting provider. 

Register your domain with an email address that is not on the domain you are registering, this way if you lose access to the domain you can recover it.

2 – Name Servers – Setup DNS control separate from domain registration

3 – Web Hosting

  • Keep separate from domain & name-servers & email
