|What is web hosting?
Web hosting is required in order for websites to be put "live"
on the Internet. A computer, known as a server, specializes in
hosting, and stores the files that make up the website so it can
be accessed by any internet user at any time. The quality of the server and network on which it resides is
critical to the success of any web site and the reliable
performance of e-mail associated with the site.

secure web hosting company that assures your web site and e-mail

hosting servers and network are designed to exceed the

the success of your website to anything less?
What is a
A domain name is your address on the Internet (i.e.
www.whatcomweb.com). The best domain names are those that are easy
to memorize and spell. A thoughtfully selected domain name can
assure a more successful web presence, while a poorly selected
one can just as easily confuse and frustrate potential visitors
to your site.
Why not choose a free or cheap web hosting
Free or cheap web hosting companies often skimp on the vital
elements necessary for a quality web hosting service. It
is important that you research the stability and quality of any
web host you consider. A few items to consider:
- Server Specifications
- Network Capacity and Redundancy
- Customer Service
- Maintenance and Upgrades
- Company History
If the success of your web site is important, it is
equally important that you host your site with a
professional hosting company.
