Hosting & Domain
A reliable web hosting service and your domain name are must-have components of your website.
If you don’t have your own hosting account, we’ll guide you through the process of setting it up and, where applicable, acquiring the SSL Certificate. Likewise, if you don’t have a domain name, we can help you register one.
Both processes are straightforward, easy to understand and don’t require any technical skills!
Unlike our competitors, we don’t resell hosting and/or domain renewal. Here are the main reasons:
- The best approach, and the one we advocate, is for you to open your own hosting account in your business’ name and to register your own domain. Then, you can give us access as necessary. If our business relationship ends for any reason, you’re free to find a new web designer and give them access to your accounts, while retaining ownership of your site.
- We leave hosting to specialist hosting providers and focus on what we do best: crafting beautiful and effective accommodation websites.
- Setting up your own hosting account and paying for your own domain saves you money. True to our philosophy of ‘great websites don’t have to cost a fortune’, we try to keep the fees as cost-effective for you as possible.
Ad-Hoc Website Edits
If you want your website to really work for your business, it needs regular text and image updates. Websites with consistent new content perform better in search engine results, so potential guests are more likely to find your site.
Our hourly rate is reasonable, and provided we built the site, you have the reassurance of knowing we’re very familiar with every aspect of your site, so can deal with any issues or edits in a timely manner. We will include our hourly rate in your initial quote.
Keeping your site’s theme and plugins up-to-date is vital as it protects it against hacking attempts. If we become aware of any such urgent work required on your website we’ll contact you and give you the option to have us work on your site or make alternative arrangements. We always let you know the estimated cost in advance.
We are there for you every step of the way!
