Domain Name

A domain name is needed to have a website. It is like a street address that tells people where you live. With a domain, customers drive directly to your website and have access to all the available information about you.

A domain name is your branding at its simplest form and the most successful businesses use the same set of words and images in all customer touch-points – on their website, in their emails and order confirmations.

With a domain name you pull traffic to your business or organisation through your website, blog, social page or storefront.

Nowadays, there are numerous domain options that would meet your style – .com, .org, .com.ng, .online, .store, .dev, .professional, . africa, .shop, .live, .xyx and many more.

Website Hosting

Websites are stored or “hosted” on a publicly-accessible computer (a server) in a dedicated or shared form. A server must be built for speed, reliability and security, but  yet affordable.

Without hosting, no one can see your website. To get your website online, you need to marry up your hosting with a domain name and then upload your content, blog or store.

With an easy setup, generous storage & bandwidth and 24/7 security monitoring, you are on the go to broadcast to the whole world.

You have a choice of Windows and Linux hosting, and that depends on you want to do with your site.

Free SSL Certificate

SSL certificate has been described as “Saving the internet, one green lock at a time.” Having the little green padlock from a trusted SSL certificate issuer give more confidence to your clients to deal with you. If you don’t have the green lock, most browsers will tag your site as Not Secure.

An SSL certificate creates a secure tunnel through which information including usernames, passwords, credit card numbers and more can pass safely.

When a visitor enters an SSL-protected website, your SSL certificate automatically creates a secure, encrypted connection with their browser.

Once the connection is complete, a padlock icon and https:// prefix appear in the visitor’s browser bar to show them they are safe to share personal details, and that their data is virtually un-hackable.

It was the understanding the need to keep all websites secured that led to the “Let’s Encrypt SSL” initiative.

Let’s Encrypt is a free, automated, and open certificate authority (CA), run for the public’s benefit. It is a service provided by the Internet Security Research Group (ISRG).

The organisation gives the digital certificates to enable HTTPS (SSL/TLS) for websites, for free, in the most user-friendly way. The whole essence is to create a more secure and privacy-respecting web.
