Where does your website live?

Have you ever considered how much your business relies on your website? 

It may merely act as a digital shop-front or brochure, providing an online presence so your customers can contact you. It may be more integral to your business, providing services to your clients or acting as an internal resource for staff. In the case of eCommerce, your website may be the primary (or only) way you make bookings or sales.

Have you thought about how your business could be affected if your website went down and couldn’t be recovered?

Now more than ever, it’s essential for business owners to understand where their website lives and who controls it.

This guide provides a simple rundown of the information you need to know, including:

  • The difference between domain names and hosting
  • Name Servers and DNS
  • Control Panels, FTP and databases
  • Content Management Systems (CMS)
  • The usernames and passwords you should have access to and where you might find them

We have also included a checklist at the end of the document so you can keep track of everything that you may need.

If you would like any help collating this information or getting a handle on your website, don’t hesitate to get in touch and we will do our best to help.
