At DakotaPro.biz, we take the mystery out of web hosting. Successful web hosting requires three steps. Most Customers prefer we manage all 3 pieces for them. We’ll even watch to make sure you domain doesn’t accidentally expire! However, if you’d prefer to manage your own domain, you must ensure all 3 of the following items are correctly configured.
- Domain Registration
- This is the process of “registering” a domain. This makes it yours to use. We of course register domains on behalf of many of our Customers.
- Authoritative DNS
- DNS is the traffic system of the internet. DNS is what tells a computer in New York that it can find the website they’re looking for in Tucson. By managing the authoritative DNS for your domain, we make sure all Internet traffic gets sent exactly where you want it.
- Web Hosting
- Website hosting refers to the actual server your website content is hosted on. We have a number of options for you (see below)
At DakotaPro.biz, we maintain a variety of managed services to suit your needs. Additionally, our hosting packages all include our Premium E-mail services.
