Not every web designer offers hosting, which is where your website “lives” online. Poor hosting can result in losing your web address, website down time, or even poor website speeds. Whether you’re starting your first website or need a new solution for your business, our web hosting packages are designed to fully accommodate the most basic to the most complex requirements.
Very few websites need unlimited bandwidth, and most “unlimited” packages are not actually unlimited if you read the fine print. Many websites are put on overloaded servers that cause your website to load s-l-o-w-l-y. Our hosting packages load faster than many major hosting services out there, with the right fit in price and bandwidth for your needs.
If we can’t provide the best hosting for your website, we will tell you so and recommend a better option.
Domain Name Registration
Whether or not you choose us as your web designer, we can help you with domain name registration.
Selecting a domain name for your website in an important decision. You want one that will be SEO friendly and easy to spell and remember. In most cases your business name is the best domain name. However, there are some circumstances where this may not be the case.
When you activate a search for a domain name, you may find that when you go back in to purchase it, it is “magically” unavailable because it has been purchased from underneath you to be resold to you at a higher price.
We help you search for the best domain name for your business in a way that no one can see what we are searching for and rush in to buy it, ensuring you get the domain name you searched for when it’s available, and at the original price.
When your domain name is registered through us, we will contact you when your domain name is about to expire or if your payment option has not been successful to make sure your domain name stays with you.
And, your domain name will belong to YOU, not to us. So, you can move it wherever you’d like at any time.
Did you know a web designer can set up personalized e-mail addresses for your business or family?
Would you like to get off of the big name email services that reserve the right to scan your emails for advertising purposes?
Did you know your emails can end up in a spam folder just because your recipient’s email filter has had too much spam from those huge domains?
We can set up unlimited email addresses using your domain name or show you how to do it yourself. In most cases, it builds credibility when a business has a branded email address such as firstname.lastname@example.org, rather than a me@yahoo…. Etc. Create an email address for everyone, or specific people in your business, including info@ or sales@ addresses to help manage email boxes that get too full, too fast.
SSL Certificates encrypt data to and from your website. Having an SSL certificate applied to your website will show the lock icon along with the https prefix in the address bar. This gives potential clients confidence that your website is a safe place to visit, as well as giving your website a boost in SEO ranking points. Chrome has started marking websites without an SSL Certificate as “unsafe.”
