Your Website Needs Traffic!

How much does a website cost?

Websites don’t have a flat rate. Usually, every person is different and needs different functionality to be performed by the website. If you want a simple 3-page site you can spend anywhere from 750 – 5000 depending on who you hire. If you hire an agency, it can run anywhere from 5000 to 10,000 or much more.

Do I need my hosting? What is hosting?

A website is nothing more than files and images. Some files control styles and some control functionality and some folders contains all of the pictures of your site and so on. The hosting is where those files are saved. It’s a location or IP address that points to an exact folder that is labeled yourwebsite.com.

The domain name or website address has two identifiers called NS or Name Servers. The name server is the actual address of the website. So let’s say you purchase newwebsite.com and are hosting with Bluehost, GoDaddy or whoever.. you most likely are going to use the lowest priced hosting plan which will be a shared server. It’s like a community of websites crammed into a box.

Your website is stored on a server.

This shared server will have two identifiers

NS1 – NS39.domaincontrol.com
NS2 – NS40.domaincontrol.com

Could look more like

123.54.53.45
123.55.54.45

Those 2 locations would be locations or IP addresses of the hard drive that contains your website.

It’s nothing more than a house (your hosting) with an address (domain name)

 

Do I need to have images?

You don’t need to have images. I have stock photo accounts I can use. I’d instead use your pictures but if they are a low-quality I’d recommend using stock photos. Low-quality images scare people away.

 

What do you need from Me?

I have a great content writer who will be happy to work with you.

How can I reach you?

First, give me a call or text my phone number. We need to talk about what your goals are. If I can help you, great! If I can’t, I’m sure we can remain friends.

Do I need an SSL certificate for my website?

No, you don’t need one, but if you don’t have one, it will hurt you in the search engines and scare a decent amount of people away from your website.

An SSL encrypts all data coming and going from your website making it very hard for information to end up in the wrong hands. The last thing anyone needs is a breach of a privacy policy. If you want to rank well in Google and have customers find you, make sure your hosting provider includes SSL for no extra cost.
