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. You can also visit the website for more information.

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 built us a new Unity Hospice website from the ground up, as well as designing new brochures and other collateral material. Working with them has been a pleasure - they are professional, organized, responsive, aim to please, and are easy to work with. Their design work is beautiful, and they really took pains to understand the look we were going for. Highly recommended!

We redesigned a very very old website with Gecko and began the process during coronavirus. Despite those challenges, the team at Gecko was very helpful and flexible. They built us a beautiful website, taking into account all our needs. The project manager Grace, was a pleasure to work with, always available to answer questions, great with communication, and very organized. They went above and beyond to make sure the end product was perfect, even if it meant putting in extra hours, or extending the project longer than anticipated. We really appreciated all they did for us and could not be happier with the results!

Working with the team at Gecko Designs has been fantastic! I worked closely with Ali to create a new meetings website and she was so patient with all the changes to copy and took the time to walk me through the back-end of Word Press. I am confidently making changes on own but know that any request will be done quickly. The team was even very responsive over a weekend to meet a deadline. Highly, highly recommend!

Gecko's team does great work. We had a fairly complex request with a variety of stakeholder interests at play. Their team listened carefully and responded thoughtfully to our needs throughout the process! We were very pleased with the process and thrilled with the final product they provided.
We’ve been working so hard making our clients look good, we neglected our own brand for quite a few years (25 to be exact...)! New look comin’ at ya Spring 2021! Has it been awhile since you’ve re-branded? We get it! Call us and we can help! (406) 662-1123
