How much does hosting cost?
The first year of hosting is free for both custom and template design clients. After the first year, hosting renewals will be $135/year. If I also registered your domain name for you, that will be an additional $15/year. The billing system will automatically send out an invoice a few weeks before your hosting/domain expiration date and send weekly reminders until it's paid.
What's the difference between hosting and a domain name?
Hosting and domains are two separate entities. Hosting refers to the web server where your site files are located. A domain name is the web address people use to access your site.
Can I host with you if I already have a domain name?
Yes! All we'll need to do is point it to my server by editing the Domain Nameservers, which is done within your registrar account (the place where you purchased the domain). These are essentially just addresses that tell the domain where it should be pointing to. I can help with this if you're not sure how.
If you register a domain for me, do I have administrative access to it?
If I register a domain for you, it will be held within my own GoDaddy account, so you won't have admin access to it. If you need administrative control over the domain, you'll need to register it under you own name and account (just be sure to add privacy service when doing the registration so your real name and info isn't visible to the public).
Can I transfer my existing website to your hosting server?
Regrettably, no.Because it's important for me to keep my server secure and stable for my design clients, I only host websites that I personally developed or whose source code I am very familiar with. The only exception is if you'd like to purchase a hosted installation of my VedaCMS software, in which case, I'll be going through your source code to install everything.
Can I have a domain email address if I host with you?
Absolutely! You can easily create a domain email address within your hosting control pane after everything is set-up. Visit the hosting guide for more details and instructions.
