Hosting is where you park your website. It’s like paying rent. Basically, there are two parts to a website. The website and the hosting. Once your new exciting website is finished, your hosting account will allow the entire world to see it. Hosting will also allow you set up your email accounts.
The hosting account connects your website to the internet. (simple. right?)
Just think of your cell phone. Your cell phone would be considered similar to the website. Now that you have your cell phone, you need to buy a service that will connect your cell phone to the rest of the world. Hosting is similar to your Metro PCS, T-Mobile or Verizon. It will connect your website to the world. Got it?
Hosting of course is extra. We have many different packages to fit your website needs.
Our Primary Hosting recommendation is:
$12.00 a Month ( 1 year in advance) ($140.00)
You’ll get unlimited space and 100 email boxes. (POP3/SMTP) and free support. 24/7
Registration or simply known as buying a domain name is a fairly simple process. We can purchase your domain name for you or you can purchase the domain name yourself.
You do need to be careful though. Your domain name is very important and there are certain aspects of the process of purchase and renewal and security that need to be addressed. If your not sure about these issues, you might want to ask us to consult with you.
WordPress is known as a CMS. (content management system) A content management system (CMS) is a computer application that allows publishing, editing, modifying, organizing, deleting, and maintaining content from a central interface. Unlike previous website designs, WordPress will help make it possible for Businesses to make their own changes to the website through the back end interface.
But, if you are too busy or would prefer us to make the changes after your initial web design is finished, we can that. That is called “maintaining the site, or maintenance”
Our cost for that is:
1 hour ($35.00) or
10 hours for ($300) (you would save about $50.)
Mobile phones and web design are becoming the “new norm”
As of 2016, over half off all internet searches are done on mobile devices. As you can imagine, in a few years it will probably 90%.
The new technology called, “responsive design” allows for web sites to look great on every conceivable mobile device. (cell phones, IPads, laptops etc.)
Your current site still looks great on desktop computers, but you’re missing a large audience of potential customers. All of our WordPress websites will look great on all devices.
Discount Business is proud to say that we have been in business for 15 years. For over 15 years, we have helped over 600 small businesses, such as yourself, to have a successful web presence. From lawyers and doctors to lawn maintenance and mom and pop stores.
Another good question.
We will almost always discuss beforehand the expected time of completion. After the site is agreed upon as completed, time spent on changes and updates will be considered “maintenance”
