FAQ

Do I really need a website?

YES! YES! YES! – We cannot stress enough how important an online presence is to a business. One of the largest generations in history is about to move into its prime spending years. Millennials are poised to reshape the economy; forcing companies to examine how they do business for decades to come. With product information, peer reviews and price comparisons at their fingertips, if this younger generation can’t find a decent amount of information on your product, with just a few quick swipes on their iphones, as far as they’re concerned, your business might as well not even exist!

What is web hosting?

Web hosting allows you to publish your website. You will need a web hosting service to host your website so that people can view it online.

Is hosting necessary for my website?

Yes- You will need three things for your website. web hosting, a domain name, and site files. Think of your web host as the building where your business is located, your domain is like the street address, and your site files as the items in your office. Your web host provides the physical space where your site files (including blog posts, images, landing pages, and more) live so they can be accessed at yournamehere.com.

How does shared web hosting work?

Like many shop owners at the mall, all with their own space but sharing the same building. The “shared” in shared hosting refers to the fact that multiple websites are sharing a single web server. Shared is a perfect option for  small businesses or new bloggers that are just getting started, who need an economical option. As your site traffic grows, you can seamlessly upgrade at any time to a different hosting plan to better fit your needs.
