What goes into a Website project?
Website hosting is a digital service that allows individuals and businesses to make their website accessible online. A domain name is an address (like www.auradesign.co.za) that points to a hosting server. These hosting servers are located in a high-security building called a data centre and keep all of your website’s information secure.
Shared hosting is by far the most popular system
Our servers use one of the worlds leading hosting platforms called cPanel. Here are a few of the features:
- Brainstorm – Easily manage your website files
- Quote – Create and manage email accounts
- Jet Backup – Weekly or Monthly local or cloud backups
- Databases – Needed for CMS systems like WordPress
- Metrics – Monitor your website’s performance
- Installer – Easy install popular platforms like WordPress
