What is Website Hosting and a Server?

Website hosting service is a type of internet hosting service that allows individuals and organizations to make their website accessible on the internet via the World Wide Web. Website hosts are companies that provide space on an internet server they own or lease for use by their clients, allowing organizations and individuals to serve content to the internet.

In simple terms, think of hosting like renting space to store your website on a fast computer that is always available online (commonly referred to as a server). Visualize renting space at an online storage lot where you will store your website, so that it is available to be downloaded and viewed on any computer around the world that wishes to browse your website.


Why do you need Website Hosting?

Acquiring website hosting is a necessary part of creating a web presence (the second step after your domain name). Your domain name is an 'address' that will direct visitors to the server where your website is hosted - much like a business  street address directs clients to their store location where their product can be browsed and viewed.
Your website hosting determines your website's availability on the internet. It must be professional, and stable, so that your website is always available for immediate download to the computer of a potential client to view your website.


If you already have your own Hosting:

You may already have a hosting account registered and set up for yourself. If so, great!
When we design your new website, you will need to have access to your hosting account to update your new website to your server. We will need you to provide your hosting FTP information (FTP address, login, and password) so that we can connect to your hosting server. If you have no clue what we're talking about, you can provide us with your hosting company, your login, and your password, and we can try to find your FTP information for you. Time will be billed at our normal hourly rate.


If you need hosting, how do you get your own hosting account?

If you need a hosting account, your first step is to choose a hosting company.


Setting up your Website Hosting Account:

If you want to, your next step it to set up an account with them so that you can host your website there. You have two options to set up your hosting account:

You can find and chose a hosting company on your own that you feel is reliable and meets your needs, and register and set up a hosting account yourself. This can cost you anywhere from $100 to $250 per year... or more, depending on the company. Once you have your hosting account registered and set up, you will need to provide us your hosting FTP information (FTP address, login, and password) so that we can connect to your hosting server to upload your new website. If you have no clue what we're talking about, you can provide us with your hosting company, your login, and your password, and we can try to find your FTP information for you. Time will be billed at our normal hourly rate.

Key Considerations in choosing a Good Hosting Account:

There are several important things to consider when choosing a good hosting company:
  1. Avoid 'free hosting'.
    Most free web hosts impose advertising on your website to cover the costs of providing your site the free web space and associated services. This is not professional, and their service is not reliable. It should be noted that free web hosts without forced advertisements aren't necessarily good news. Without a viable means to recover the costs of running their server, many of them close with alarming frequency. With hosting, you get what you pay for, 'free' is not worth it.

  2. Reliability and Access Speed.
    A website site that is frequently down will lose a lot of visitors. If a potential client finds your website on the search engine, and is unable to access it, they will simply go down the list to find another website. Slow access (long page load times) are also very frustrating for visitors and will cause them to leave for another website.
    Almost fifty percent of all hosting companies went out of business during the past year. Customer of one of the ones that went out of business each have their own horror story to tell. Lost files, websites down for weeks, businesses left unable to get permission to transfer their own files, and others that lost their websites completely.

  3. The amount of Disc Space and Data Transfer (traffic/bandwidth) available.
    Does the service have and offer enough space for your needs and future expansion and growth?
    Does it offer a substantial amount of bandwidth so that your site is always available?
    Many web hosts impose a limit on the amount of traffic your website can use per day and per month. This means that if the pages (and graphic images) on your site are loaded by visitors beyond a certain number of times per day (or per month), the web host will disable your web site (or perhaps send you a bill). Worrying about bandwidth limits is the last thing you should have on your mind when your goal should be to build as much traffic to your website as possible!

  4. Control Panel & Features
    Your hosting company should provide you with cPanel access, a detailed website traffic and statistics program, and be sure it offers all the features you or your designer may need in the future (FTP, PHP, Perl, SSI, .htaccess, telnet, SSH, MySQL, crontabs, Email, Autoresponders, POP3, Mail Forwarding, Multiple Domain Parking, Subdomains, etc).

  5. Customer Service & Technical Support
    While this may sound like a given, there are many clients that fall thru the cracks when it comes to customer service and support. When your website is down, we understand it is vitally important to get things running for you ASAP - regardless of the time of night, or what holiday it may happen on. We put the 'care' into customer care for you.

A Bit About Us:


We made About Time Design successful for years without talking "About Us". How did we do that? Well, it was never supposed to be about us. It was always about our clients and their success. We simply focus on getting their websites and designs out there, and putting everything we have into building their success.

But we're bigger now, and people who aren't very familiar with our work want to know a bit more about the creative geniuses working on their new design. So, here's a bit about us and who we are, what we do, and why we're so good at it!
