Hosting & Domain Names
If you want a website, then you’re also going to need a hosting plan and a domain name (aka a website address).
What is hosting? Hosting is where your website is kept on a public server so people can access your website. Without hosting, your website cannot exist on the internet. What type of hosting you will require, depends on the size and customer demand for the site itself. The larger the site the more hosting space your website will require.
What is a domain name? A domain name is your website's url and is required as the address for people to find and view your website. Choosing a name that encompasses your business is important, as the url can assist with SEO rankings. You also need to keep the address short so it is easy for your customers to remember it. Your company's structure may also determine what type of URL you can use. For example, not-for-profit organisations can use the .org.au domain, while most commercial websites would use .com.au.
We can help you navigate the domain name creation and purchasing process, as well as organise a hosting plan that is tailored to your website's needs and requirements.
