Once you purchase a web hosting plan, Credible Hosting stores your site on one of our servers and assigns it a unique DNS. The DNS serves as the address that allows people around the world to find and view your website. This unique address is required in order for people to view your site. By purchasing a website hosting package, you’re basically buying space on one of our servers. It’s similar to space on a computer’s hard drive, but the server allows your website’s files to be accessed from anywhere. For more information, visit our Knowledgebase support page.
