What is Web Hosting?
Essentially web hosting allows your website to be accessible anywhere in the world. A business will usually hire space on a large computer ( server ) which has a permanent connection to the internet.
This is called hosting. You will need to obtain hosting to provide a location for a computer, laptop, iPad or mobile phone internet browser to go when you type in a domain name.
Our hosting services are located at our data centres in London, Hertfordshire and Leeds and they all provide a physically secure environment with high speed network access, 24/7 server hardware monitoring and advanced power management, to ensure the safety and integrity of your data.
Our backbone provider includes full LINX peering, redundancy and unlimited throughput so your website will be served to visitors at top speed which also satisfies Googles new page ranking criteria based on the speed of access to your website.
What is e-mail forwarding?
With a domain name and hosting, it is possible to forward any e-mail sent to an address at your domain, such as ‘firstname.lastname@example.org‘, to an existing e-mail account. This means that instead of customers having to remember a long and unprofessional-looking e-mail address, such as ‘email@example.com‘, they can just remember your domain name.
The fact that e-mail is forwarded automatically also means that you have the freedom to change your Internet Provider as often as you wish without having to worry about changing your business e-mail addresses on company vehicles or business cards.
What is a domain name?
A domain name is the address that you type into your computer, laptop, iPad or mobile phone browser when you wish to visit a particular site. For example, our domain name is ‘www.projec59.com‘.
A domain name is very important for every commercial web site, as if you don’t have a domain name, then potential customers will never find you. A potential customer is far more likely to remember ‘www.yourbusinessname.co.uk‘ than ‘www.disposabledomainprovider.co.uk/department/index.html‘.
