The website in a nutshell

The website in a nutshell

In order to understand the different components of a website and to build a foundation for our communication about your website, I would like to draw a quick picture here for you.

The 3 necessary components of a website presence

1. The Domain Name

If you are looking at any website nowadays you will find that the website has what is commonly called an address or more specific and URL. The website address is normally a domain name (like for this website it is "").

The domain name would reflect your business as acurate as possible or contains your name and becomes an important part of the branding of your business. It can be a country specific domain name like the domain names ending in are specific to Australia for example or it can be an international website mostly ending in .com.

The domain name needs to be registered at the specific registrar and is then owned by you as long as you pay the yearly domain registration fees invoiced through your registrar. The yearly fees for your domain name can vary substantially depending on what domain name you choose. Generally they would start at around US$9.95 per year depending on your registrar.

If you have a domain name already registered, I can either use your registrar or we can transfer the domain to my registrar.

This domain name the needs to be pointed to your actual website which is created on your web server. This service is included in the creation of your website.

2. The Web Server - Web Hosting

The web server is where the files of your website are residing. The domain name is bringing your visitors to this web hosting account.

Depending on your requirements for your website a entry level cost for the web server can be a little as from around US$5.00 per month. This will give you a decent web hosting account which will allow you to setup proper email accounts, FTP access and install databases and Content Management Systems.

If you would like me to build your website for you, please contact me before you buy your web hosting account as there are some requirements that need to be met in order to install the Content Management System for you.

I recommend using this following web host company as they are reliable, cost effective and have a good knowledge of the Content Management System I am using to build your website.

3. The Internet Service Provider

Your ISP short for Internet Service Provider is the one service that allow you to access the internet from your computer. Everyone who has internet access does so through the internet service provider. This would be the one component which most of you alreday have established.

Can I have the domain name, the web server and internet service provider through one company?

Yes, of course this is possible that such a combination can be had. Often though you would choose different services. Sometimes you will find that the web hosting provider can also provide you with the registration of your domain name.

Can you be of help choosing the right solution?

I certainly can be of help to you to choose the right solution. When we have established what kind of website you do require, we can look into this and I can suggest some services for you. I can of course also set it up, as a matter of fact, this comes included in the price of all of the website packages.

Joomla! is a free and open-source content management system (CMS) for publishing web content. Over the years Joomla! has won several awards. It is built on a model–view–controller web application framework that can be used independently of the CMS that allows you to build powerful online applications.

Wordpress Content Management System

Wordpressing your way

Wordpress has become over the years one of the popular website creation tools. Originally being primarily a blogging tool the community has helped to expand it to a content management system (CMS) also.

We still would consider WordPress as a tool that has its forte on the blogging side. However a huge community of developers turn it into a very attractive solution for a lot of businesses.
