Web Hosting

Where should you keep your new website? You have options.

Website design is a process to build a site, but where will you house or host the website? If you have a hosting package already, that’s great. Pie Design can migrate the new website to your existing plan.

If you want a change or have no idea what to look for in terms of web hosting, Pie Design can help.

After your website design is complete and ready to launch, Pie Design will setup the website on a web host optimized for WordPress. Let’s Encrypt SSL (Secure Sockets Layer), and CDN (Content Delivery Network) is standard.

What about backups?

Pie Design sets up backups and maintenance of backups. Other aspects covered are web security, theme updates, and plugin updates.

Web hosting and content updates are combined. When you need web hosting, you have a designer that wants to help keep your website working. Send web updates and save time.

Web hosting and updates start at $100 per month and bill annually.

You may have questions

Here are some questions and answers:

  • Will you purchase my domain? Because a domain must be registered, Pie Design suggests the client purchase the domain. A domain registry is Google Domains.
  • Can you set up an email account using my domain name? Pie Design suggests using G Suite by Google Cloud to set up a business account email. There you can follow a prompt to verify your domain name to use on your email.
  • What happens if I want to cancel hosting and update services? That is ok. Pie Design can help transfer the website to a host of your choice, send you a secure download of your website, or transfer host account and billing to you.
