Frequently asked Questions
A domain is your website address on the internet and is used in 2 ways:
- The domain name is the name entered into an internet browser enabling people to find a website eg www.yourcompanyname.co.uk
- The domain name forms part of the e-mail address for your business eg email@example.com
Without registering your domain name you won’t be able to get your business online with its own website, which is a fundimental requirement to trade successfully for the overwhelming majority of businesses.
We recommend that you register a domain name in the same name as your business to prevent other people from doing so and passing off their website as yours and stealing your customers. You should do this even if you do not intend to use that domain address for your website or do not wish to use it for some time. We also recommend registering several variants of your business name. this would include plural, common mis-spellings, hyphenated and most importantly several suffixes
Register your domain with us (click on the link below) and remember to order a number of the most popular "top level domains" (suffixes - .com, co.uk, .biz etc)) in order to protect your business as best as possible.
A suitable domain name should either describe your product or be your actual business name. Pick a domain name which is easy to type and say over the phone. New domain names can take up to 48 hour to become available
A domain name is never owned outright but rented subject to the registrar’s terms and conditions on an exclusive use basis with automatic right of renewal. By registering a domain you are entering into a 3 way agreement between the registrar, the registrant’s agent (us) and you, the registrant.
We recommend that you register your domain for a period of at least years (up to a maximum of 10 years)
A domain name registration may be completed in the name of an individual or a business. If you are carrying out a domain registration for your business you may choose the business or yourself as the registrant. Any type of business or person may be a domain registrant - whether you’re runing a limited company, partnership, sole trader or other form of business.
Domain names need to be renewed either annually or once every two years (up to a maximum of 10 years) depending on which one you choose.
Once you have registered your domain name you need to pass the details to your technical advisor or website builder and they will sort out the rest for you.
We can arrange for web hosting space which is linked to the Domain Name if you prefer. Click on the link below for more details of our hosting package and and how to set it up
Web hosting is the service of storing data that keeps websites up and running for users. Every single website that is online has a host server, and almost all use a web host to manage that storage. Not all web hosts provide the same level of quality, though. Uptime, and data speed and quantity of transfer are the best measures of a host’s success. You can often pay more to get data transferred in higher quantities, faster. Most web hosts offer unlimited bandwidth and disk space at a speed that is perfectly fine for small-to-moderate sized businesses or individuals. For companies with burdensome websites, they may need to seek out a more advanced web host.
A shared web hosting service is an agreement whereby each user gets a certain portion of total available resources. Multiple domains are hosted by the same server, which means that the server’s capabilities are split between multiple domains. This means that these websites will not experience as robust of performance as a website that has a dedicated server applying all of its resources solely to one website. If requests come in for multiple websites on the same server simultaneously, the server will only be able to transfer so much information at a single time. For low-bandwidth websites, the delays will often be unnoticeable, but for more burdensome websites, the delay can be significant.
Bandwidth is the amount of data that is accessed while viewing a website. Every time a user views a website, data is transferred, and the measurement of that transfer is bandwidth. In general, images, audio files and video files are higher in bandwidth than text. That means that if you have a more burdensome website in terms of bandwidth – if you have lots of video or streaming audio, for example – you have a higher bandwidth requirement than someone with a simple text-only website, or someone with only a few low-resolution images. Some web hosts offer unlimited bandwidth, and some place a cap on it.
Disk space refers to the total space available for a user to store files on at any time. Files may be any type - HTML, images, videos – and at any single given time, the total file size may not exceed the disk space. How much disk space you need is dependent on what type of media and interactions you’ll be hosting through your site. Your email account’s storage is also counted in disk space, so if you have large files that will sit in the account, that will boost your disk space needs. Remember that although you might not need much space now, you want wiggle room to expand and grow in the future, without switching hosts.
When you purchase Web Hosting through us you will receive is a certain number of dedicated email accounts for any domain name linked to that account. The email accounts are managed from the control panel of the web host and you can set up email accounts, change their passwords, and set up email forwarders, all from that control panel. You can also set up a dedicated email account to send from a web-based email service like gMail or an offline service like Outlook.
This is an abbreviation for Secure Sockets Layer. This is a common protocol used to communicate information securely online. This protocol provides a safe path that runs between two Internet-connected machines or two machines on the same internal network. It is an extremely handy tool used by web browsers who need to connect securely to a web server, given the wild insecurity inherent in the Internet. SSL usually operates and sets up a secure session with little or no interaction from the person actually visiting the web site. You may notice the browser displaying a padlock or the address showing a padlock and a green bar – those are the hallmarks of SSL doing its magic.
We are able to set up SSL Security for any web site hosted with us.
