Website Maintenance & Hosting FAQ's
Monthly Website hosting is a service provided by Megnificent Creative (the web host) that sell or lease space on a server where you store the files (HTML, CSS, PHP, Images, WordPress Installtion etc.) that make your website accessible on the internet. Hosting is where the physical files for your website are stored.
If you’re planning on creating an online presence for your business, having a reliable web hosting plan is essential. Having dedicated hosting when building a website will ensure that your webpage will continue to run to the best of its ability. We have dedicated servers that provide technical support to all hosting accounts.
We can provide hosting packages to specific businesses needs. The plan you choose will depend primarily on how you plan to use your website and how much you have budgeted for hosting. Get in touch with Megnificent Creative today if you have any questions about our types of website hosting.
