Website & Email Hosting
Don't know what hosting is and if you need it, don't worry it's not too scary and yes you will need it.
In short, the hosting is the online storage space you rent to store your website and allow it to appear on the internet, quite simple really.
Our website & email hosting is provided in collaboration with Clook, they provide UK based web hosting, backed up by award-winning support 24/7/365.
I can offer a hosting package to suit all your needs starting from as little as £8 per month, this, of course, will vary dependent on your type and size of the website and will usually be charged as a yearly fee but in certain circumstances can be paid monthly.
Our hosting provided by Clook comes with unlimited email addresses i.e. [email protected], [email protected] & [email protected] could all be used with one hosting package. Our host also is secure (your website will get the little padlock in the address bar) as standard.
High-quality hosting such as provided by Clook means your website will be live over 99.99% of the time, not always the case with cheaper hosting packages.
Some smaller informational or magazine type websites with static content and built using Gridsome benefit from hosting on services such as Netlify, we will advise you as to the best hosting service for your website at the quotation/contract stage.
Domain names can be bought on behalf of clients, but I have found it causes fewer problems further down the line if a client makes the purchase themselves and then allow me access to the account.
I use Clook for all my domain name purchases where clients are not comfortable making the purchase themselves.
There is a range of domain name extensions available but most UK based websites use the co.uk extension, although it is sometimes prudent to purchase domain names with other extensions to stop competitors purchasing them.
