Domains & Hosting


Why is Domain Hosting Important?

Hosting and domains are two separate components of a website, each serving distinct functions Our team specializes in both. It is good to share the difference so clients have a clear understanding of what each service is. DDL Advertising can manage it all under one roof.


Where to Host?

Website hosting refers to the service that allows individuals or organizations to store their website files and make them accessible on the internet. When a user visits a website, their web browser sends a request to the hosting server, which then retrieves the necessary files (such as HTML, CSS, JavaScript, images, etc.) and delivers them to the user’s browser, allowing them to view the website. In essence, hosting provides the infrastructure and resources necessary to keep a website online and accessible to visitors. Hosting services may vary in terms of server type (shared, dedicated, VPS), storage space, bandwidth, performance, and additional features (such as email hosting, security, backups, etc.).

Our favorite hosting platform is WP Engine, we have worked with them for years.

Owning a Domain

A domain is the unique address that users type into their web browser to access a specific website. It serves as the human-readable identifier for a website’s location on the internet. Domains typically consist of two parts: the top-level domain (TLD), such as .com, .org, .net, and the second-level domain (SLD), which is the unique name chosen by the website owner (e.g., When a user enters a domain name into their browser, the Domain Name System (DNS) translates this name into the corresponding IP address of the hosting server where the website files are stored, allowing the user’s browser to connect to the correct server and retrieve the website content. Domain registration services allow individuals or organizations to register and claim ownership of a specific domain name for a set period, usually annually or biennially.

Hosting provides the infrastructure for storing and serving website files, while domains serve as the unique addresses that users use to access those websites. Both hosting and domains are essential components of a website, working together to make websites accessible on the internet.
