Question: What is the minimal requirement for
website hosting service?
The minimum requirement is that you must own the
domain name that you are trying to host.
As an example, our registered domain name is:
HostSite.com. Because we own the HostSite.com
domain name, only our company can use the name
HostSite.com on the internet as our website address.
With this in mind, you may start to understand just
how important it is to register your own domain name
for your company as well. By registering your own
domain name, only you can use that domain name
for hosting your website or for your email service.
Because domain registrations are reserved on a
first come first serve basis, we highly recommend
register your own domain names today
before anyone else can register them tomorrow. This
keeps your website naming options available
in case you find out that you really need to use
that specific website name in the future.
