What is a domain name, and web hosting?
A website requires two fundamental things:
1. An address which people use to find the website– this is called a domain. An example of a domain is www.grongtech.com.au. This is the address people use to find our website.
2. A web host. A web host “hosts’ your website files on a server that can be accessed 24/7/365 from anywhere in the world.
Do I need my own domain name and web hosting?
Yes, we help you get this set up and we can work with your existing provider in most cases. We are not a web hosting company, and we feel that you should own your own digital property.
Will my website work on mobile devices?
Do you do e-commerce/online store websites?
