What is hosting and do I have
to host with your server? The easiest answer is just like you, your
website needs a home, a place to host your website. A host or server is
a computer that stores websites so they can be viewed on the internet,
you can not have a website without someplace to host it.
Does it have to be with us?
No, it doesn't have to be with us, there are many good servers out there
and we will be glad to publish it to another server if you want. There
is a $50 set up fee to publish to another server. We have tried to make
our program very affordable with lots of extras. We feel that we have a
good hosting program - More space and bandwidth than you will ever need,
no pop up ads, 2 email accounts and a lot of extras.
Why pay for hosting when there are free servers available? Free sites
such as Geocities and Tripod are acceptable for personal sites if you
don't mind the pop up ads and advertising banners, but for a commercial
site they do not give the impression that you are actually a business
with any degree of success.
We have tried to make
ours as affordable as possible.
You do not have
to have your site designed by Sherlock Designs to use our
