Q3.What kind of media institution might distribute your media product and why?

A domain name is what people will type in to the browser to find you or your company online. This is what you will type into your browser to find a certain website.

To buy a domain name you must first think of a name which you believe would best describe your website and what people would remember, many website names are short so it is not hard for the audience to forget what it is.

Web hosting is used to publish yours and others websites on the Internet. If you build a website and wish for people to be able to view it then you must upload it into a web hosting service so people can see it and search for it.

There are many things you can use form web hosting, from hosting personal websites to your hobbies type of websites, however for people to see your site you will have to use a web hosting service otherwise people won’t be able to find your website.

The web server i will be using to publish my website will be Apache. I choose Apache as it seems to be to be the most commonly used web server on the Internet, with a high reputation. The research my partner and i gathered when searching for websites such as that Apache would be the sever that came more frequently therefore making in reliable.
I will have the website published through google as the service they provide can make my website visible and easy to find. The way i would make my website visible on the Internet is to go on to Google and type into the search box 'how to make my website visible on google' and then click on the first link which appears, then i will click the link that reads, which will then take me to the page where i will be able to make my website visible on the Internet.
