Website Hosting Introduction
To have a website, you first need a domain name/URL (such as www.urbandriftwood.com). That domain name has to point to a computer (server) that has your website information stored on it (hosted). So in a nutshell, to have your website on the world wide web it needs to be hosted by someone. Urban Dirftwood provides hosting services for websites of all sizes. We have developed 3 different hosting plans that scale to meet the needs of your business's website.
We can assist you in choosing a domain name that suits your business and we will take care of registering and renewing this name. In the event that your desired domain name is reserved, we will search to find a variety of similar domain names that are available and guide you in choosing the best name. We can also provide you with advice on reserving domain names that you do not intend to use but are very similar to your chosen name. This may help avoid confusion by your customers.
