What in the world is hosting?
One simple way to put it would be to use a TV analogy. Your Domain Name
is your company or brand name. Your Website
is a commercial about you, your product or your company. And your Hosting
is the service that brings that commercial to the airwaves, cable or satellite. Basically, "We Are The TV Station". But, instead of broadcasting your commercial to the airwaves, Webs-a-gogo uses it's servers, bandwidth and technology to serve
your website to the Internet, World Wide Web (www) and everybody in it or on it.
When you sign up for a Webs-a-gogo Package or what we call "WAG-PAC" we get you everything you need for a high profile web presence. The three main items we cover first are:
1. Domain Name:
You need a Domain Name to get found. It's for people to use in searching and addressing your website.2. Website:
Your website is your storefront, sort of a company building or office online. A place from which you display and talk about your stuff. Try to build awareness of your product, build value and sell either yourself , services or products. Your website is a advertisement, a brochure, a business card and a magazine all in one. It can even be a web style commercial!3. Hosting Plan: One that is best for you and your needs!
Your Hosting Plan is the monthly cost you pay to have your Domain
broadcast to the World Wide Web and everyone in it. Using Webs-a-gogo servers as your TV station, you are able to display your stuff and reach your audiance. Hosting is just the monthly service necessary to bring your website to the world. At Webs-a-gogo, you pay for this service monthly or quarterly or annually. With your hosting you not only get your website served up to the world, but you also get a whole list of additional services to support that effort and help your website to become a successful part of your marketing and sales plan.
