Website & Email Hosting

What is website hosting?

Configuring a new website involves two key elements: a domain name and a hosting server.

The domain name of a website is its’ URL or web address, such as geckodesigns.com. Any number of domain names can direct traffic at a website simultaneously. These domain names can be purchased from reputable vendors online. The ownership of each domain name must be renewed annually or the address will be available to the public for purchase.

Web hosting servers are secure computers that are rented out in order to store the actual files of a website. Hosting servers are typically rented on a monthly basis. The price is dependent primarily on factors including the amount of bandwidth, storage capacity, number of email addresses supported, technical support, and website backup or failsafe measures. There are many features of hosting services that you will read about. Some features are standard, while others are premium services, and still others are just marketing jargon – such items are akin to telling you that your new car comes with wheels and tires.

Our clients always have the option to use our services or their own independently selected web hosting services. There are some technical aspects involved that directly influence the functionality of your website. The type of server that you rent dictates how your website is assembled, our favorite server is called an Apache server which is the most common type and uses an open-source dynamic website language called PHP. The second most common alternative is a Windows server which uses a proprietary code language which we avoid because of its limitations.

Gecko exceeded our expectations in every way with their efficiency, creativity and professionalism...our non-profit hasn't had a fully functional site that we are proud of in years, and not only did Gabe, Grace & the staff at Gecko completely turn this around, they helped us learn along the way. Thank you!

These guys are amazing! Gabe knew exactly where to go in the code and want to fix and had all our issues repaired in minutes! As a previous owner of a software company I would give them the highest rating possible!

Had some updating issues with our website and Gabe provided an expedited response to our situation so we could keep the site up and running smoothly. Additionally, he tweaked a few things he noticed weren't correct so the site would have better SEO. Thanks so much!
