Domain Registration

Before building your website, of course, you will need to have a domain name;  something like www.yourwonderfulwebsite.com.   Don’t have a domain yet?  No worries.  We have two options for you:

WE Register Your Domain

$100

We help you select the best available domain name for your business and register it for you for a flat fee of $100.  Cost includes naming consulting, availability research, registration of your domain name for one year, and configuring your domain to point to your new website.

YOU Register Your Domain

FREE!

If you’re of a mind to be a DIY (do-it-yourself) type, then GO YOU!  It’s quite easy to register a domain on your own if you know how to use the Internet and Google.  Moreover, many website hosts offer a free, one-year domain registration with your purchase of one of their hosting plans.

**Your domain must be renewed every year or registered for multiple years.  Our cost to renew your domain for you is $30 each year.

Website Hosting

If your website’s domain is like it’s “home address” then you can think of website hosting as the house itself and your hosting fees are like your rent.  Once you have your domain registered you will need to have a place for your website to live.

Top 3 Managed WordPress Hosts

When it comes to web hosting, we’ve already done all the shopping for you and here are top 3 premium managed WordPress hosting providers; tried, true and tested for you.

SITEGROUND

Good
$3.99 Per Month

Pros:  Pretty fast, decent caching tools, super-affordable, hosts email, really great support, complementary site migration (they actually do it for you), host multiple domains, staging environment.

Cons:  There’s a learning curve – not the best option for customers who have desire at all to understand the first thing about website hosting. Does not automatically update your WordPress core system.  Slower than our other two favorites.

FLYWHEEL

Better
$15 Per Month

Pros:  Blow-your-mind fast, excellent caching tools, amazing support all around, staging environment, push-button backups and restore points, auto-updates to WordPress core, proactive notifications on potential threats, etc., complementary site migration (they do it for you).

Cons:  Most expensive (in terms of value), does NOT host email, basic site migration takes up to 3 days.

WP ENGINE

Best
$29.99 Per Month

Pros:  Very fast, excellent caching tools, amazing support via Online Chat or Phone, staging environment, push-button backups and restore points, auto-updates to WordPress core, proactive notifications on potential threats, etc.

Cons:  Kind of pricey, does NOT host email, site migration plugin (they don’t do it for you), 24/7 support via ticketing system leaves a little something to be desired.
