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.

Gabe at Gecko helped me not only with my business site, but also with my business in general, helping me imagine and re-imagine the user-experience. He sat with me for an hour, two different times, as I talked through what I wanted my site to be capable of, and then pointed me in a direction of how to make it happen. I am not entirely tech-savvy, and he gave me the tools I needed to take the next steps...and I always know I can call on Gecko if I get stuck or need a second look at what I've created. I highly recommend Gecko!

Gecko Designs was a pleasure to work with while building out a brand new website. They understood what we were after and had creative and useful ideas to help us reach our goals for the website and for our organization. Communication was friendly and reliable throughout the process and they were available to troubleshoot any issues that arose before we went live, and after. Highly recommend!

From intro meeting to final website, this was a great experience. Gecko created exactly what I was looking for, and was very timely and affordable. Great collaboration, lots of changes, and they made me feel comfortable every step of the way. I could not recommend more.
