There are typically three types of hosting that companies require; Web, DNS, and E-mail.
To provide these services requires Web, DNS, and E-mail servers connected to the Internet running twenty-four hours a day. The expense of this is usually prohibitive for small to mid size companies and why they rely on companies such as AIC for their hosting needs.
- DNS hosting is the service of making a registered domain name "work" on the Internet.
- Website hosting is the service of making a website available on the Internet.
- E-mail hosting is the service of providing e-mail accounts for a specific domain name.
While these services are available separately, AIC as well as most ISPs provide all of these services in a standard web site package. If you need a web site or are looking to host an existing web site, you'll want to visit our Web Hosting section where you can find a web plan which contains the right combination of these services. If, however, you are looking just for DNS or E-mail hosting, you can visit either of these respective areas for information on obtaining these services separately.
