What is web hosting?
Web hosting is the hiring of space on a server which is accessible across the internet and must provide unlimited, fast and secure internet access 24/7/365.
Our web hosting service is out-sourced to a UK web-hosting company which guarantees a solid and stable platform with fast connection speeds, full server monitoring and a secure environment on Linux® servers, giving you the assurance that your site is easily accessible to everybody – at all times.
A standard web hosting package includes:
- Server space (to store web pages and pictures)
- Domain name registration (or transfer of existing domains)
- Email aliases and email forwarding
- MySQL databases and PHP scripting (optional)
- Server analysis
- Visitor tracking and statistics
- Secure data storage and back-up
Why you need a domain name
A domain name is a unique name that defines a web site and forms the address (or location) of your website on the internet.
Your domain name should be kept simple so that your visitors can remember it and also be relevant in terms of keywords for search engines rankings.
Advice on choosing a suitable domain name(s) is provided and the registration process (and renewal) completed for you.
Email addresses and forwarding
Choosing a good domain name is also important for your email.
Email addresses linked to your domain name can be automatically forwarded to any existing email account – the advantage of this is being able to change your internet service provider (ISP) without changing your email address.
New email accounts with their own "mailbox" can also be setup and managed for you.
As hosting requirements vary considerably so can the price; we offer a personal consultation and quotation service to identify the correct package to suit your individual needs and budget.
