Many people asked what is web hosting. Most of them cannot imagine why people need web hosting.
So, Web Hosting is…Making a Web site available on the Internet.
A Web site contains pages of information stored in a Web server, which is a computer running Web server software connected to the Internet.
Many companies host and manage their own Web sites inhouse. Maybe because of the data are sensitive or their IT Manager don’t trust others. However, there are options. Companies can get rid of their old servers and get a Dedicated Server from a web hosting company (such as kkboss.com) and avoid having to maintain own equipment.
By doing so, the advantages are :
- Reduce the number of IT staff in the company (save cost)
- Reduce electricity (no need to switch on the air-conditioner 24 hours just to cool off the servers)
- Reduce the cost on Internet connectivity.
- Avoid “extra” cost when the server having problem….such as hardware cost, overtime for the IT personnel to check the server, or have to pay the external expert or consultant to “rescus” the server.
Small businesses can sign-up a shared web hosting package from a web hosting company (you know….kkboss.com) to host their website or for their email. Email is important. Your clients or potential clients from developed countries usually communicates with you via emails. What if the area your company located having Internet connectivity problem? Your clients might shout at you if you don’t check their email and reply them in short time.
ok, you might have your own 3G or 4G or whatever mobile Internet connection to check your email. That’s fine. What about your colleagues? Not everyone subscribe to 3G or whatever G…….

In a very simple explaination, Domain Name Propagation means Domain Name Updating Process.
You need to wait from 5 minutes upto 72 hours for any changes made to the domain name, such as :
- new domain name registration
- change of details
- domain transfer
- change DNS info and so on.
It all depends on how often the ISP (Internet Service Provider) update their DNS Records.
ISP is the company you are using to connect to the Internet from home or office.
In Malaysia, we now have two ISP companies :
- Telekom Malaysia (Local ISP)
- i-Skill Dynamic Sdn Bhd (International ISP)
Domain Name Propagation is the process of your registrar (or the website you used to register your domain name) handle the changes made in your domain name to their DNS servers, ISPs acquire DNS Records from the DNS servers, and other ISPs (ISP from other company or other countries) also need to update their DNS Records.
Some ISP update their DNS Records more often than others (better service) and receive changes faster. As a result of this, often you will not be able to get to your website by its' domain name but a friend can (because your friend is using a better ISP service). Just wait until the changes propagate (update) to your ISP.
All other Broadband service providers such as Digi, Maxis, Celcom, etc are not ISP.
WiMax such as P1, Redtone are also not ISP.
