2nd Step: Hosting

The next thing you need is a hosting service that will put your website on their servers. Having it on your computer doesn’t put it on the internet. It’s just the place you design it and back it up. Currently, I recommend that my clients use www.lunarpages.com or www.siteground.com to host their website. They have a starter plan that costs $3.95 a month/$47.40 a year and that usually is all that a small business or ministry needs. If you want to have more than one website, their Basic Plan is unlimited everything and is reasonably priced, especially if you sign up for 3-5 years. You can also start with the Starter Plan and move to a bigger plan if you need to in the future. I have been with Lunarpages for several years and they have been very responsive when I’ve had a question or problem and they are one of the most reasonably priced. To sign up you will also need an email address and credit card. You can sign up online or call them. Following the sign up they will send you an email with account information that your web designer will need to put your website on their server. The hosting service also includes email service if you need that. You can see all of the features available for each plan on Lunarpages website. Remember to renew your hosting service each year or your website will not be available on the internet. Please contact me if you would like me to help you through the hosting service sign up process.
