An important step in building a website is choosing a website hosting company. The web server of the hosting company is where your site files are stored so that they can be accessed by Internet users.
A domain name (i.e. julieburgess.com) is a unique name that identifies and points to a website. Based upon your business or organization’s name and what it is that you do, I can help you choose an appropriate domain name and check to see if it or other similar options are available.
I offer hosting and domain name registration services through SiteGround. In addition to being the most popular and highest rated hosting provider in the WordPress community, they provide unique in-house WordPress speed and security solutions to make your site as fast and secure as possible. I have been consistently impressed with their 24/7 phone support.
SiteGround’s website hosting plans include:
- Daily Backups (kept for 30 days, full backup restores are absolutely free)
- SSL Certificates (connection to the site will be secure and encrypted)
- CDN (content delivery network, speeds up load time of site for visitors from different geographical locations)
- Email Accounts (unlimited number, webmail interface, forwarders, autoresponders, etc.)
Some other web hosts charge separately for each of these services which can rack up quite a hefty bill each year. You’ll save money using SiteGround as your web hosting provider.
