As part of my website design service – I am happy to recommend several local companies that I use for website hosting. In my experience you get far better customer service from a local web host than a large company based elsewhere.
I have built up a strong relationship with these companies and know that if there are any issues, then they will be on hand to sort them out.
What is Web Hosting and do I need it?
Website hosting provides the filespace on the internet, where all of your website design files reside. You cannot have a website displaying on the internet without it.
Website hosting also provides email accounts and other things such as backup facilities – where backups are taken daily (or more frequently) of your website. This means that should you be unfortunate enough to get your website spammed, then we can quickly roll the site back to a timeframe before it was attacked.
I offer a flexible approach and can either develop a website onto a hosting that the customer has already purchased, or I can organise this on the customer’s behalf.
Can you help me move my website to a new hosting?
I have helped lots of my customers move their websites from one host to another. This is sometimes because they are unhappy with their web host and feel they are being charged far too much. Some web hosts don’t make this process particularly straight forward either, but this is something I can help organise for you as part of a website redesign.
Website Domain Names
Every website needs a domain name – this is the www.mybusinessname.co.uk or .com. I am happy to assist my customers on both selecting a new domain name, if they are developing their first website and can organise this for them if they would like me to.
Where do I start with my website design?
I can help you target which areas of your website should be updated – to help grow your business in the most cost-effective way. I have helped lots of Lichfield and Staffordshire based companies to understand how to make the most of their websites to grow their businesses.
