Creating an online business as a sales tool for my clients has been a part of every website project I've worked on. I enjoy taking a product from the concept phase all the way through to building sales for the client's business or selling off the new product to another company as a technology acquisition.
When you have a website it is "hosted" on a computer connected to the Internet. Clients' websites are hosted in high security, high availaibility network operation centers. These are major website companies **ACRONYM** Type II certification. I work directly with these companies to provide you with a personal level of service.
Domain Name Service is what makes your domain name (ie. Mywidgets.com) work with your website. This service is included with website hosting and is required to make your domain name work with your website. It is similar to listing your new phone number in a phonebook.
This is how you get your own domain name (ie. myname.com). When you buy a name you are really renting it from a central name broker, usually on an annual basis. I can broker the names for you similar to GoDaddy.com or Register.com but I provide more personalized service for my clients.
This provides your email service using your personal domain name (ie. myname.com). Normally I setup the Google Apps service to handle this which also includes all of the Google services like calendar, docs, youtube, talk, and 60+ others.
This involves the managment of the computer resources used to host your websites and email. If your website receives a mid to high level of traffic then you will need this. There is a nominal amount of service included with all we hosting plans. Some clients request additional services to support specialized IT needs. I work primarily with LAMP systems.
