Web Hosting and Domain Names

Web hosting is necessary to make your website viewable on the internet. Without website hosting you would be the only person who would ever see your web pages.
To keep it simple, by buying web hosting you are buying a "folder" on the internet. When you design a web page it is stored in this "folder".

There are several businesses who sell hosting and domain names. Branch Out Advertising can work with any of these businesses. However, we have worked well with GoDaddy and network solutions.

These websites have several different hosting plans. Some include using either Windows or Linux. Depending on the size of your website and how much traffic you expect to generate there are different plans to suit you. We can help you choose a hosting business and hosting plan that fits your needs. If you are unhappy with your current hosting provider we can easily switch you to a more helpful provider.

Along with website hosting you also need a domain name. A domain name is the name of your website. For example: www.mywebsite.com
After you have both your hosting and domain name you need to activate your account and attach them. With your domain name you also can apply for emails for example sales@mywebsite.com
Choose your domain name wisely, and remember that your name reflects not only how people see your web site, but also how search engines see your web site.To read more about Search Engine Optimizationor about how to get higher with Google.

Every domain name has an extension. Our advice is to use a .com because it is the most popular extension. And it is easier for a search engine like google to find your web site. We would also like to advise you to buy your domain name for 3 to 5 years. And to extend your name in a timely fashion.
