You name it, Teknoasis does it.
Teknoasis Website Hosting
Every website needs a home. That's where hosting comes in. Your website files and data are stored on a web server managed by Teknoasis. This guarantees full compatibility with Teknoasis' content management system. It also means you can rely on Teknoasis to provide the necessary storage space and bandwidth for your website's file, database, and transfer needs. You can also rely on a server up time of 99.9%, which means that your website's server is guaranteed never to be down for more than 8 hours, 45 minutes, and 36 seconds over an entire year for normal maintenance.
Standard Website Hosting: $60/yr
- 10 GB storage capacity
- 100 GB bandwidth per month
The standard website hosting package will be more than enough for most websites. Should you require more than 10 GB of storage and/or 100 GB of bandwidth per month, special hosting needs can be addressed and priced on a case by case basis.
Teknoasis Domain Registration
Like a house without an address, you can't very easily find a website without a domain name. Teknoasis offers domain registration services; including new registrations, transfers, renewals, and domain name advice.
Get your .com domain name: $24/yr
If you're interested in a .net, .org, or other top level domain, I can register many of those for you, too.
Quick Domain Name Tips
- As a general rule, the simpler the name is to remember, speak, and type, the better. However, selecting an ideal domain name is often easier said than done and can still be quite challenging.
- Don't fall for the .co, .net, .us, .cc, or other top level domain marketing that's going around; these are not usually a good idea. You want to register a solid .com if you want to really be serious about web presence and internet marketing.
- Also, the use of hyphens (-) is not usually recommended, though can be used to your advantage if you understand how the search engines think.
- Finally, be wary of copyright infringement; the keys here are to 1.) make sure you're not trying to feed off the popularity of some other individual or company, and 2.) do as much research as you can prior to selecting a domain.
- The #1 tip I recommend is to start out by speaking with me concerning your need for a domain. I'll be happy to make expert recommendations and try to steer you around the pitfalls.
Teknoasis Email Services
Your domain name is a great opportunity to enhance your image through a professional-looking email address. Imagine putting email@example.com on your business card. Compare this with @gmail.com or @yahoo.com, which just screams "Unprofessional!" to anyone with an up-to-date business sense. This dream of total professional image is easier to reach than you might think. Note that a domain email requires that you or Teknoasis first register a domain name at additional cost.
Professional Domain Email: $10 each
- Access your email through an email client program - Included
- IMAP encouraged but POP3 available (see below) - Included
- Webmail access through your web browser - add $10
Email Access Types: IMAP vs POP
When I offer email accounts to my clients, I always recommend IMAP over POP. The reason is simple: I want you to always be able to access every message.
The disadvantage, in my opinion, to POP email access is that once you download a message to read it, you can no longer download that same message to any other device. There are some exceptions to this, but, nonetheless, I personally see the POP method as a bad idea in an age where many people use multiple computer and mobile devices to access their files and messages.
If you have a special need to access your email via POP, I can make that available to you. However, please note that once you go POP, the messages you download are permanently downloaded and switching back to IMAP not only won't give you access to messages you've already downloaded, but you can cause further inconveniences like unnecessary message duplication.
To me, the decision is a questions of logistics and workflow. I'm happy to discuss your specific situation, offer advice, and ultimately provide you with what works best for you.
