“Web hosting” is the term given to the collective service of keeping your website and email online.Your website (and email) consists of many individual files and often a database that stores information. All this stuff sits on a powerful computer (the ‘server’) and the web hosting fee that you pay basically is your ‘rent’ on that server. You are simply renting space on another computer that is hooked up to the internet.
Web hosting is practically a commodity these days. Whitefish Web Design provides web hosting to our clients because hosting a website and building a website go hand in hand. And by hosting the sites we build, we’re able to eliminate the potential pitfalls that come with introducing another vendor into the mix.

Dedicated IP and Secure Server (SSL) Certificates: varies
•If your site requires secure server technology, you’ll need a secure server certificate (and as such, you will also need a dedicated IP address.) We’ll advise you if you need this, but in general, any sites that use ecommerce or transmit any sort of sensitive information will need this. Note that this fee is on top of the hosting plan fees.
