Learn the Basics

Let's start off with the basic question "What is hosting?"

Hosting is a service provided to you which allows you to share your website out on the internet. We run the servers(large computers), maintain them in our state of the art facility and all you need to do is upload your website content to the space we provide you on the server and we take care of the rest.

What is a domain name/registration?

A domain name is your pointer on the internet. Much like the neighbor's house could be known as "Steve's house", your domain name is your own name.com/.net or .org for example. We take care of IP address routing or "street address" information for you so you can just go to your domain.com by typing it in your web browser.

Website content? I don't have that.

Not a problem! Not only are we compatible with all the most popular website building software, but we also provide our own web-based website creating software for you. You can create a great looking website in minutes. No special software is needed to be purchased, we provide it free with our hosting plans!

With over six years of experience in the hosting industry and thousands of satisfied clients, you can be confident in our customer support, pricing, and services. We will make creating or uploading your website as easy as possible.

We guarantee that you will never find another hosting provider with the amount of features that we provide at a lower price!
If you do we will beat their price by 10%!

To get started with creating a website you will need a hosting plan and a domain name. A domain name will give you an address on the internet and a hosting plan is required to host your website files so that visitors may view your web pages.

If you have any questions at all we are available to help via live support 24/7.
