Frequently Asked Questions

What is Web Hosting?

Hosting is providing and maintaining the servers that allow your website to be visible and accessible to everyone connected to the internet, and the servers that send and receive your emails.

Web hosting can be shared or dedicated.  The difference is if your website is on a shared server the websites of other businesses are also operating from this server.  For most businesses this is all that is required. A dedicated server is required when the usage of data, bandwidth and demand on server resources are such that you need your own server.  A dedicated server only hosts one businesses website or websites.

Do I need my own domain name?

The short answer is Yes, Every business should have it’s own domain name.

Whilst strictly you don’t need your own domain name, having acme@btconnect.com just isn’t professional.  It does not cost much, you can register your own domain name for as little as £10 per year.

You can use your domain name for your website and for your email addresses.

If you’d like more info get in touch and we’ll do what we can to help you.

What does it cost to Transfer a Domain Name?

The cost of transferring a domain name depends on the ‘TLD’ of the domain (that’s the characters to the right of the last ‘.’ so the TLD for brokenstones.co.uk is ‘UK’ and for brokenstones.net it’s ‘NET’)

UK Domains should be FREE to transfer, most other domain names you will have to renew it for an additional year on transfer (Generally about £10, again depending on the TLD), but you will get an extra years registration out of it too.
