Hosting

Every website needs a paid-for hosting service, which is basically a place where your website resides and is kept safe and secure.  This is usually paid monthly as long as the site is live.

For your peace of mind, your site will be hosted by one of the world's leading hosting services, and as this is included in your Website Service, you won't have to deal with third parties, keeping things simple for you.

When you own a domain name, the provider usually charges an annual renewal fee. For your convenience and as part of your Website Service, we will automatically renew your domain name annually for you so that your site always remains live. 

Nuts and Bolts

If you choose a new domain name for your website, we can secure it and set it up for you as part of your Website Service. The benefits of a new domain name (e.g. www.marymurphycounselling.ie) is that it helps to promote your new brand. 

If you are updating an existing website, we can transfer your existing domain name on to your new website hosted by us, and you can then cancel your subscription with your existing hosting company.

 

SSL stands for "secure sockets layer" and is a form of security for sites that handle sensitive information. It creates a secure connection between a visitor's web browser and the server of the company they're interacting with. We'll ensure you get SSL with your site as part of your Website Service.
