Web hosting refers to the space where your website sits. This space is known as a server as it ‘serves’ out the information contained within your website. There are many providers throughout Australia and the rest of the world providing server space to millions and millions of websites, which is lucky because without a hosting service your website would not exist.
Having a website designed and built can be likened to building a new house; where the website design and construction is the house, and the server space (Hosting) is the land it sits on. Some people require a house and land package but some may already own a block of land and you just want the house built. In other words, we understand that you may already have a hosting provider and that's fine.
Here at ‘Your Industry Website’ however, we can set you up with our server providers so you don’t have to go elsewhere. One account and one point of contact will make it easy for you not only have your website developed with us but managed by us into the future.
Email is something that everyone in business uses to communicate and it’s one of the first steps most businesses take to create a public presence. Sure, there a lot of other ways to talk to each other but email is still king.
Because we provide hosting for your website we can also provide email addresses for you to use and access to several email clients to use. Just because we can though doesn't always mean we should! In fact, we recommend that you use Google Apps for Work which we feel is the best email service for small business.
Basically it is Gmail for business but with added functionality such as the ability to use your own domain name e.g. john smith @ js electrical.com.au rather than [email protected] There are also many other benefits which you can check out here.
As part of your web package we can help you set up Google Apps for Work so that it integrates with your new website and any email marketing you might undertake.
We take your website security seriously and, if you host with us, as part of your annual hosting fee we monitor and backup your website on a regular basis.
