Website Domains/Hosting

There is none. Some of our clients use more and some use less so it all equals out. Keep in mind that we run our own dedicated servers and we have lots of bandwidth to spare. We don't want you to worry about sending too many people to your site so we just don't charge anything for it... pretty sweet eh?

What exactly is transfer?

Transfer is the amount of information sent from your space on our servers to customers who view your site. Things like graphics and images use a relatively large amount of bandwidth while text uses much less. Most hosting companies allot specific amounts of transfer for each customer and charge very large fees for overages. It's similar to cell phone plans. We, however, dont care how much transfer you use. We have plenty to spare and will get more if it is needed... it's all covered in your regular monthly fee.

There are two different ways of choosing your domain name.  Either pick your company's name or a specific keyword or phrase you want to target for search engines.  Search engines put a lot of weight on the domain name when ranking results.  However, using a domain name with keywords in it might not be conducive to your current or potential customers remembering the domain name when trying to get more information about your business.  The choice is up to you, but remember your domain name is very important so choose wisely.

A Top Level Domain or TLD is basically what comes after the dot in a website domain name.  So for Your-Web-Guys.com the TLD is .com.  Initially there were basically three TLD's available for folks to register domains on.  They were .com .net and .org.  Dot org domains were reserved for non profits, but that is no longer the case, anyone can register a .org domain name.  Indeed, because of the explosive growth of the internet, TLD's have now expanded to many others such as .info .name .mobi .me .co .biz and many more.

Not sure which TLD you should register?

We still generally suggest you find a .com for your domain, but there are many other TLD's to choose from if you cannot compromise on the specific domain you want.  In other words if your company name is Your Web Guys but the domain yourwebguys.com is taken (which it was when we first opened for business) it is better to choose a hyphenated .com such as Your-Web-Guys.com rather than yourwebguys.biz or dot info.  However, if you would also like to have a second domain for your website that is completely do-able.  For instance, we have two domains that will get you to our website, both Your-Web-Guys.com and YourWebGuys.net will get you to the same place
