the basics

To set up a website you need a domain name and a hosting service. Registering your domain and arranging hosting is a courtesy part of the freiWorks package.

The components:

domain name – the “www.” name that’s keyed into the browser address line to access your website – for example, on this site it’s “”

domain ownership – the name of the individual or organization who owns the domain name. When you register a domain in your own name you become its owner. This ensures that no-one else can register an identical domain name.

domain registration  – the record of domain ownership which is held by a domain registrar such as bluehost or GoDaddy.

domain hosting – the internet service provider (ISP) whose servers (the DNS servers) the site runs on. This may or may not be the same as the domain registration. For example, is registered with GoDaddy and is hosted by bluehost.

domain privacy – prevents anyone who queries the ownership of your account from seeing your name and contact information. This is not mandatory but highly recommended.

freiWorks uses WordPress to to create a powerful website or blog for you.

WordPress is web software that’s powerful, friendly and easy to work with – it can do pretty much anything you want it to, it’s constantly getting better and its great community is supportive of everyone interested in WordPress, whether they just heard about it or have been writing code for it for years.
