» Web Hosting
We maintain our own web servers, giving our clients the ability to enjoy a single point of contact for their web design and web hosting needs. In some cases, third-party hosting solutions can provide a better alternative. We carefully analyze each website to help determine the best web hosting solution for you.

The scope of web hosting services varies greatly. The most basic is web page and small-scale file hosting, where files can be uploaded via File Transfer Protocol (FTP) or a Web interface. The files are usually delivered to the Web “as is” or with little processing.

- GOOD PRACTICE: Computer—Book, Computer—Books list of keywords
Come up with 4-5 words that come to mind when you think of your website’s purpose. Don’t be afraid to play around with different combinations until you find the perfect one!
- GOOD PRACTICE: Consider both your brand AND product name:
meaning and memorability are key! If you own a leather jacket business called leather jacket, the domain name LeatherJacket.com might be more compelling and distinctive than MyLeatherJacket.com for business.
- BAD PRACTICE: Use hyphens
These can make your domain name more difficult to remember. Plus, if visitors forget to include them in the address, they may end up on someone else’s website. Baaah-d news!
- BAD PRACTICE: Limit your search to .coms
Your TLD (Top-Level Domain)—the suffix that completes your website’s address—is important, but there are many options beyond the standard .com! Break away from the herd. What TLD is right for me?
