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.

Domain Name

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, for example.

Hosting Plan

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.


Every business owner understands the importance of having email. Having an email that uses your website domain name is critical in making your business creditable in the eyes of your colleagues, prospects, and customers. For example, my email is This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. While it is important to have that same domain name to correctly identify you with your business and your business with the business website, emails and websites work independently from each other. Except - and there is always an exception - when you have webforms on your website that email you when a form is filled out by a website visitor. In that case you need to have a website setup that works well with your incoming email box.

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 Recommendations

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 for hosting and since they also sell domain names, we recommend getting your domain name with them as well.
