Domains and Security

Domain Names

Your domain name is very important, because it is how people get to your website. It is kind of like the street address of your house; if a friend is coming to find you, you want to be able to give them a clear address so that they can find you easily.

Unlike your street address, though, you can choose the domain name for your website - so choose wisely. It should be a clear, easy to remember domain name that will not easily be confused with a competitor. When checking against competitors, do not forget to check the same domain in different extensions, such as .com .net and .org to make sure that you are protected from confusion. We can register all the standard (.com, .net, .org, etc), as well as the latest addition (.pro, .store, .expert, etc) TLD extensions.

PLEASE NOTE that our hosting plans include your domain name registration for 1 domain, so there is no need to purchase it separately, unless you wish to secure it immediately. Refunds and / or credits cannot be issued for additional products purchased outside your hosting plan.

Security / SSL Certificates

Your website connection needs to be secure. When visitors to your website share information with you via a contact form or when you interact in other ways in which information is exchanged between you and a website visitor, that connection should be encrypted to prevent eavesdropping and to protect your liability.

PLEASE NOTE that our hosting plans include your basic  ssl certificate for your website that is hosted with us, so there is no need to purchase it separately, unless you have special security needs or a separate website not on our servers. Refunds and / or credits cannot be issued for additional products purchased outside your hosting plan.
