What is web hosting?
Web hosting refers to a service that gives your website its virtual “home.” Just like a house sits on a street with a specific number for it’s address, a website sits on a server with a domain name for its address. Without hosting, your website would be unavailable to the public Internet.
What is a domain?
Your domain name is your address on the Internet, also know as your URL or Web Address. Typically, it will be something like www.yourcompany.com or yourcompany.com. Domain names need to be registered annually, and for optimal SEO benefit should be renewed for a term of at least 3-5 years. Domain registration is very inexpensive, and can be handled centrally through BizzyWeb along with your web hosting, so you just get one bill for all of your website needs.
What is an SSL, and do I need one?
SSL stands for Secure Sockets Layer. This is an encrypted link between a web server and a browser. “Shared” SSLs are standard with our hosting, and help ensure your site gets found by Google and keeps your customer data more secure than standard “HTTP” websites. For companies requiring eCommerce payments or wishing to process financial transactions, there is an additional annual fee to keep your SSL certificate active on your website. SSL certificates also require a static IP address.
Can I host my email with BizzyHosting?
Bizzyweb does not offer email hosting, but we do work with vendors such as GSuite for Business or Microsoft 365. Additional fees apply depending on your specific needs.
