What is Hosting?
The easiest way to explain that is that hosting is space on a server where your websites pages and pictures are stored. Similar to how we store files of documents and pictures on our own computer hard drives, servers are hard drives for the internet. We lease a number of these “hard drives” to put your website files on, and organize them to work efficiently, so that your website displays properly and quickly. Where you decide to host may effect how your website is displayed and/or how it can be designed. Our preference is that you host with us, as this allows us to oversee all the files with direct access, without needing access to another companies servers, either way as it’s always your choice.
How much is Hosting?
In an effort to keep things simple, we’ve found that a simple annual fee is best. No monthly charges to worry about, and your renewals are automatic unless you let us know 30 days prior to your expiration, as we like to keep things current and renew before the eleventh hour…
