web domains and hosting
What is a Domain Name?
A domain name is usually the name of your company and ends with an extension such as .com or .co.uk. When choosing your company name it is worth checking out whether or not the domain name is available first.
Example of a Domain Name
www.buzzingbee.co.uk or www.buzzingbee.com
You can find domain names here:
What Does an Extension do?
Extensions locate the audience you are wanting to engage with. If you are a local business and want to target local audiences then .co.uk is probably a good fit. Extensions that end in .com are used for world wide audiences. Have a good read of other extensions that may better suit you.
What is the Yearly Cost?
With any website that we create we will provide a generic domain name that is included in the cost. There is a yearly cost with domain names that usually remains constant. (If any specialised domain name is required this will be at an additional cost).
This means that as soon as you buy a website with us, you then own the rights to the domain name and website.
The cost of any domain name is between 0.01p and £10,000 depending on requirements.
The average price for a generic domain name is £10 – £20 per year (depending on extension and availability).

What is Hosting?
Hosting is where your online business is held on another computer (called a server) and kept secure. The hosting provider is usually a third party company that specialise in this area of all things internet. Anyone that wants to have a website and others be able to access it need to have this service.
Essentially it is a cost that ensures your website is on the internet.
What is the Cost?
The cost depends on requirements. Some of these variables might be about how much traffic you expect to have through your website, and how much security you are likely to need.
If you are an artist and sell your work online, your traffic (quantity of people on your website at any one time) will likely be less than iPhone for example. iPhone are likely to want much more security as well.
For a small business Web Hosting will cost anywhere from £100 to £500 per year.
Any Off the Shelf Web Site we provide the Hosting and is limited to the smaller user. If more premium features are needed this will incur additional costs.
