Hosting is completely different from domain registration, but many companies offer both as a service.

Registering a domain means you’ve gained legal ownership of a piece of Internet real estate; you’ve chosen a url for your website, and registered yourself as the owner of that url.

Web hosting is a place where people store their websites. More often than not, the term “web hosting” refers to the company that rent out their computer/servers to store your website (hence the word, host) and providing Internet connectivity so that other computers can access to the files on your website. It is important to choose a host with constant uptime. Have you ever visited a website only to find it is “down?” Downtime equals lost revenue and referrals- we don’t want that to happen to you!

We don’t host websites, but we will get them hosted for you. We can register your domain for you, or if you have an existing domain, we can connect that domain for you, free of charge.

We use managed hosting for all our WordPress sites through a company called Flywheel. Benefits of managed hosting include:

  • SSL Certificate with every site (this eliminates hacking risks)
  • Nightly backups- if you accidentally “break” your site, you can restore it quickly and easily
  • Built-in stats; how many people are visiting your site?
  • Built in help desk- after our 30 days help runs out, Flywheel is available to assist should you have questions about your WordPress site.

Our Information Sites are not hosted on Flywheel, as they are not robust enough to need all the rich features available, but do include backups in case you accidentally “break” your site.

The investment in your website varies based on your individual need. You can find out more information on our Investment page.
Awww thanks! We think you’re great, and would love to build your entire website and deliver a turnkey site, ready to go. However, because we are awesome to work with, that can get expensive!

We pride ourselves in delivering a website to you that is fully-functional and ready for your finishing touches, even if you don’t have web editing skills. Our goal is to deliver you a site that is as easy for you to complete as Microsoft Word
However, if the thought of Microsoft Word or ANY editing sounds worse than a root canal, we can create a turnkey package just for you!
