great support, great performance, great security and scalability.

Now that you have chosen your new domain name, it’s time to talk about hosting your website.

The bottom line is this:

There are a ton of options to choose from – ranging from free to several thousand dollars a month. Knowing what you need is crucial so let’s jump in.
