Website Technology Explained
Having a successful website depends heavily on technology. Every website needs three items - domain name, hosting plan, and email - to work properly.
A domain name, the web address of your website, is what you type into a web browser to locate your website. The domain name for my website is webdesignbyrobin.com, for example.
A hosting plan provides a place for your website files on a computer server. When people type or click on your domain name, the website files are located and the website is presented on their computer screen. A domain name connects an internet browser to the location of your website files. Think of it as an address for your website.
Website conversions are essentially what happens when website visitors reach out to you. Website conversions ;are one of the most important reasons we have a website for our businesses. To capture prospects and relay that information to the business owners, our website must work reliably. This is when we rely on technology to get the job done. However not all technology is the same. After careful consideration and years of experience in the website design field, we recommend the following services to our clients.
Domain names can be purchased from just about anywhere and will cost between $10 - $20/year. When you are purchasing a domain name you are simply purchasing a phrase that lives in a record that points to a website host and an email server. There is little to no risk in choosing the company you buy your domain name from. We recommend Siteground.com for hosting and since they also sell domain names, we recommend getting your domain name with them as well.
We recommend Siteground.com to our clients based on years of experience working with Joomla websites for the business community. We recommend that hosting is purchased directly by the business owner. No need to worry, we will help you pick out the right plan and we will set up the hosting plan for you once it is purchased.
