Being a full service web design and development company, we're able to host your website for you.
Like most web companies, we charge a monthly website hosting fee - think of it like paying rent - but our fees are very competitive. Unlike some other web companies, we'll tell you what those fees will be in advance so there's no scary hidden cost to you. You can find the monthly hosting fees for our standard packages on our website.
What is Website Hosting?
A website is basically made up of a bunch of different files and those files have to be stored, or 'hosted', on a special web server in order for your website to work. To make a website 'live' so that it can be found on the web, we 'point' your domain name (e.g. www.designerwebsites.co.nz) to the part of the web server which hosts your website files. It's complex stuff really, so place your trust with our established company, we don't plan on disappearing overnight leaving you with no way to move your website files to another provider.
If we built your website, then we also take responsibility for upgrading the content management system periodically as new versions are issued.
