You By Design Websites
Frequently Asked Questions
Designing and developing a website can seem like a daunting task. Here are some of our most frequently asked questions to help put your mind at ease.
First, a domain name. Your domain name is basically your website’s address on the internet. Domain names have different extensions like .com, .net, or .edu.
Second, you’ll need a host for your website. A hosting service stores your website files and provides access to the Internet or World Wide Web.
We have had great success with GoDaddy for purchasing both domain names and WordPress hosting packages.
If you already have a website, and you need a new one, You By Design will provide a staging area, at no charge, where we will build your new site. Your current site will remain active until we go live with the new site.
