Domain Registration, Hosting Services, SSL Certificate & Maintenance Service
Is the process of registering a domain name, which identifies one or more IP addresses with a name that is easier to remember and use in URLs to identify particular Web pages. The person or business that registers the domain name is called the domain name registrant. The cost of the domain registration is $19.97/year. Includes ICANN (the Internet Corporation of Assigned Names and Numbers) charges, a mandatory annual fee of $0.18 for each year of domain registration, renewal or transfer.
A web host, or web hosting service provider, is a business that provides the technologies and services needed for the website or webpage to be viewed in the Internet. Websites are hosted, or stored on special computers called servers.
The cost of shared hosting services is $17/month (must be paid via automatic monthly deductions from a debit/credit card), or you may choose to save $84 by paying one year in advance ($120) which is only a budget of $10/mo.
An SSL Certificate (Secure Sockets Layer), also called a Digital Certificate, creates a secure link between a website and a visitor’s browser. By ensuring that all data passed between the two remains private and secure, SSL encryption prevents hackers from stealing private information such as credit card numbers, social security numbers, names, addresses, usernames and passwords.
Organizations must use an SSL certificate to secure their site if they wish to take online payments or expect their visitors to submit confidential information. Besides building trust and security into your website, SSL certificates also help with SEO efforts now that Google is providing a rankings boost for pages that are served over https (“S” stands for security) instead of the usual http. Our rate is only $77/ year, plus a setup and installation fee of $20.
