Why Do I Need Website Hosting?

Website hosting is required for all websites that are to be published for the general public to view on their web browsers. Without a hosting company, your website will not be available on the internet. A hosting company will take your website and store them on a special webserver which will then present the website to the requesting user whenever your domain address (URL) is put into the address box.

How do I know which plan I need?

During our web design planning, we will need to determine how much web space will be required to house your website, while keeping in mind your future growth opportunities. Other considersations in determining the right web hosting plan include such things as the amount of traffic you would be expecting on any given day, how many email boxes you may need, and most importantly, how much space you need for present and future storage.

As part of your initial consultation, we will determine your system needs and choose a plan that you can afford. At Savvy Web Services, we have a selection of plans that will meet every need, whether for person or business. Some of the features that monthly subscribers may enjoy include:

  • your own domain name (e.g. www.your-domain.com)
  • matching email boxes and forwarding
  • no long term commitments
  • Front Page extensions on most plans
  • web statistics and graphs for analyzing monthly traffic
  • SSL, FTP
  • Free site builder
  • CGI, Ruby (RoR), Perl, PHP, MySql
  • Dedicated IP available
  • Bonus Features

For those that already have a website designed and are just looking for a change in web hosting plans, we would be happy to review your website and recommend a plan to meet your needs. Contact us to determine the easiest way to transfer your website to a new hosting plan with minimum disruption to your customers.

Please note: Not all websites will be eligible for transfer. Eligibility is largely determined by the code your site is built on. Often times webpages that have been hashed together will result in complicated coding that could negate any cost benefits of moving to a new web hosting company.
