HOSTING

web hosting 101, plus some 300 level classes

Hosting means renting server space somewhere.  Once space is rented, a website can be installed in that space.  A web host will take care of other things too, such as your domain name (www.yourname.com), mx hosting (email name and server), SSL (security certificate), and many other things.  The cool thing is you won't have to worry about any of this.  We'll set up your website, get your name registered, set up the email accounts, and send you all the info you need on how to access your email. 


TR Media currently recommends InMotion hosting, as they have reliable servers at an affordable price.  We do work with other companies including popular names including BlueHost, GoDaddy, and others.  Depending on what kind of website you want there may be certain minimal technical requirements, but most of the brand-name hosting companies have this covered.  


LET THE JOURNEY BEGIN

RELATED SERVICES

Always be informed about up to date events

DOMAIN NAMES

We can register a brand new name for you, or help you move your existing name to point to the new server.  

EMAIL

Our team can help you get email accounts set up at your new account and work with you to get your email client properly configured to send & receive email.

SSL

Security requires many levels, including encryption of data from the server to the end user.  An SSL certificate can be installed to ensure the proper data is getting where it's supposed to.  

SECURITY

Other types of security are also available, including WordFence, SiteGuard, and others.  These services will monitor your website and alert you to problems.


STOCK PHOTOS

If you have your own images to use on the site, great! If not, we can arrange for a photo shoot on your site, or acquire the licensing for stock photos.

VIDEOS

Our team can embed your existing video content from popular sources such as YouTube, or help you create brand new footage.

FILLABLE FORMS

Have a familiar form you use?  We can convert it to fillable PDF so customers can fill out the form and return it to you.
