Hosting is the service that allows your website to be visible on the world wide web. Your web site files have to be stored or "hosted" on a server that serves the web site to the internet.
What are "updates" and why do I need them?
The system your website is built with (WordPress) requires updates. If the system or plugin updates are not kept up to date, the website can become vulnerable to hackers, malware and other types of infections.
Why would I need backups?
Hopefully we will never need to use a backup but it is smart to keep a current version of the site backed up and ready to restore in case of a hack or broken site.
What are Google Analytics?
Google analytics is a service that records and reports website data. With our service plans that include this, a basic overview of website traffic is emailed to the website owner weekly or monthly.
How do I pay?
Normally, a monthly invoice is emailed to the website owner monthly. The invoice can be payed through paypal with a debit or credit card. You can also send a check. If you want to pay up front for a year, that is possible as well.
