Website Hosting is a term that many of our clients find confusing. Hopefully, after reading this, you will have a better understanding!
At the beginning of the year, when planning out ideas for the Grateful Web Services blog, paying homage to Flash was on the list. For me, this was the start of animating the world wide web. It made an otherwise static website, come alive.
The importance of a blog seems like an appropriate subject. I always tell our clients that they need to update their blogs at least once a month. I should follow my own advice since GratefulWebServices.com hasn’t been updated in quite a few months.
2020 was tough for all of us but especially for the many who have been ill, lost loved ones, and jobs. Most of us have lost the ability to go out and enjoy a movie, concert, or even share dinner at a friend’s home. My heart goes out to all of the people we lost to this pandemic and their grieving loved ones.
Your website is the place where potential clients go first to learn about you and your services. If your website doesn’t reflect a professional look and ease of use, you could be losing business without even knowing it.
Have you ever noticed the URL (your domain name) in the browser bar? Does it either start with an HTTP or HTTPS? HTTPS sites are secured with an SSL certificate and HTTP sites, are not. Chances are, you have heard the term “SSL” but what exactly is it and why do you need it?
Would you sell your home without the help of a realtor? Can you even imagine having to pack, look for a new home, work, and then try to show your home and worry that you have all the paperwork in order? The same is true for hiring a professional website company to handle your website related needs
You know you need it but what does it really mean? According to Wikipedia here is the full definition. “Search engine optimization (SEO) is the process of growing the quality and quantity of website traffic by increasing the visibility of a website or a web page to users of a web search engine. SEO refers to the improvement of unpaid results (known as “natural” or “organic” results) and excludes direct traffic and the purchase of paid placement.”
Websites have been around for close to 30 years. To some people, this may seem like a long time but it hasn’t been that long considering the incredibly fast evolution and advances that have been made since then.
