Domain Registration and Web Hosting Services and Prices

Domain Registration and Web Hosting Services

To get your completed website up and running there are two basic requirements. The first is that you register a unique domain name that will form part of the internet address or URL by which your site may be located.

When requested, a typical URL such as yourcompanyname.co.za is first captured by a Domain Name Server (DNS) that identifies its numerical internet protocol (IP) address. This is a complex number such as 196.48.32.11. The server that actually hosts your website will then be rapidly located using this unique IP number and your home page will be loaded into the browser that requested it.
Once registered, the domain name will remain yours exclusively for a defined period (normally twelve months). Thereafter it will require payment of a renewal fee to maintain ownership

DOMAIN REGISTRATION
Choosing the correct domain name is important. Often the name of your company will be your choice but it should be remembered that such names are not necessarily unique and one may have to resort to variants, acronyms or descriptive domain names.

SEONerd is happy to assist in researching the availability of suitable domain names on your behalf and to complete the registration process for you also. In the event that a desired domain name is reserved by another user, we can also negotiate the purchase of such names should they be on offer.

Having selected a domain name, it must be registered with a particular domain such as the .co.za or .com domains or various alternatives.

Options and Prices
Prices and conditions vary according to the domain chosen. We are able to assist with the following…

With your domain name organized, your next requirement will be a server upon which to host it. Although it is possible to do so for yourself, the process requires high capital investment and skilled IT staff and, in most cases, is better outsourced.

WEB HOSTING SERVICES
SeoNerd offers a variety of basic hosting packages. Some are suited to the small business or home user while others are tailored for the larger users and for corporate use. In both cases, charges take the form of monthly hosting fees.

Which package will best suit your task is largely dependent upon your needs in terms of disc space, anticipated traffic levels, number of mailboxes and database requirements. We offer two home packages – the HomeHost and HomeHost Plus. For business users we offer the Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum BizHost options.

Features common to all home and business packages
SEONerd provides mailboxes with alias forwarding and autoresponder abilities, regular backups, anti-virus scanning, anti-spam filtering, FTP, visitor statistics, RAID and fax-to-mail as standard on all of our packages.

Features exclusive to business packages
All of our business packages support CGI, PHP, Perl, C, C++, MySQL and Server Side Includes (SSI).

We also include a comprehensive range of server-ready applications with each business package. These include the WordPress content management system, a choice of shopping carts and online forums plus blogging and photo galleries.
