Web Hosting

Website Hosting & Domains

I offer website hosting for clients whose websites I have designed only, therefore I don’t host websites for just anyone who wants one hosted. It is not necessary that a website design client host with me, they are free to use their own hosting, but most of my clients choose to for convenience.

Fully Functional cPanel and Branded Email Addresses

I offer hosting space for my clients to make it convenient for both them, and me, to maintain and update their websites as needed. When a site is hosted on my servers, I have the ability to create a custom cPanel (control panel) for each website and set up email accounts branded to my client’s domain names for them.

Emails can be received via POP3 or IMAP, and I support WebMail access with Horde, SquirrelMail or RoundCube. For WebMail you receive a customised link, branded to your domain name, to pick up your emails online.

Hosting Your Site Elsewhere

While I am able to work with clients that are currently hosting their websites with other companies, it is preferable to switch you over to my servers for hosting, and to transfer your domain to my management, unless you know how to administer them properly (i.e. set up the correct DNS values) yourself. This gives me the ability to troubleshoot issues that may occur on your site in a timely fashion.

Starting at £10 per month

My website hosting packages start at around £10 per month and go up from there, depending on the amount of space, functionality you need, amount of time you are paying for service for at once, and number of pages that are required for your particular website.

My hosting is fully compatible with WordPress websites, unlike some of the “big” guys who lock you into their proprietary website building software programs that make it impossible for you to ever move your website elsewhere in the future.

£10/month
  • Recommended for smaller 1 to 5 page websites.
  • 5GB Storage 10GB/Month Bandwidth
  • 1 Custom Email Address

Professional

*Billed annually or £21 monthly
££18/month

  • 20GB Storage 25GB/Month Bandwidth
  • 7 Custom Email Addresses

*If you receive a large amount of email, or save a lot of received email, I recommend having the email sent to your domain email address forwarded to, and stored on, an outside service, such as Gmail. Otherwise you may run out of disc space, and it’s generally a safer practice to have your email stored away from your website hosting. Most of my website hosting clients prefer to use Gmail, or some other online service, as their primary email address.

How I Arrive At My Hosting Prices

My website hosting package pricing is modeled after the pricing of sites like SquareSpace, Weebly, Network Solutions, Webs.com and Wix. Hopefully, you are already aware that these services “free” offerings are usually a teaser price, that offer you very little space or ability to grow your site.

Their method of operation is to up-sell you to the more usable monthly hosting packages that are needed to drive a business website. The prices on those “upgrades” are very much in line with our standard pricing for hosting.

The reason they are modeled after these services, and not the ultra low hosting pricing you may see from GoDaddy or similar hosts, is because I fully manage your site.

You never have to get your hands dirty with the backend technical work that goes into setting up a website and installing necessary software to make your site work, just like you wouldn’t have to do with a service like Wix or Weebly.

More than just a website design agency, I offer infrastructure services that form the backbone of your website.

Domain Name Services

I manage many of my client’s domain names (if they transfer or purchase a domain through me), making sure that they never lose their coveted domain name, due to forgetting to pay their yearly renewal fee on it.

It is very important that you stay on top of your domains and the yearly fees get paid. There are “domain predators” out there ready and waiting to pounce on forgotten renewals. They buy them up and then try to resell them back to the original owners at ridiculously inflated prices.

Some people prefer to keep their domain registrar and hosting separate. You can purchase your domain independently, just be sure you remember all of your login information for managing your domain, so you can point the DNS servers to the right location for your website to be live on the internet. If you forget this login info, or forget to renew it at then end of your term, I won’t be able to help you get it back. You will need to work directly with the registrar that you purchased it from in the first place.

Other Services

  • Deploying web hosting
  • Creating FTP sites
  • SSL certificate generation
  • SSL installation
  • Redirecting pages and sites via .htaccess and mod_rewrites
  • Joomla! installations

  • eCommerce deployment
  • Domain name registration
  • Mobile-friendly responsive design
  • WordPress core updates
  • Theme updates
  • Plug-in updates
  • Web Analytics
  • Daily and weekly backups
  • MySQL database management

Please note, some services above will require additional fees. These are being shown as an example of the type of work I can do for you, that you may not be able to get from a “budget” website developer who just customises a template for you and runs when the job is done.
