Your website needs web hosting in order to be available for viewing on the Internet. Minor Production does not require you to use any specific host, but we do offer website hosting and have a short list of qualified third-party website hosts that we highly recommend. Depending on the needs of your site, we may recommend a particular one. In some cases, we may be able to use your existing host. For e-commerce sites, you will be required to use one of our approved hosts.
Most businesses will just need a single domain name (i.e. www.mynewsite.com) and Deluxe Linux hosting. If you have ecommerce, you will need additional products from your web host.
Web site hosting for our Joomla websites is done through Bluehost or GoDaddy, which are third-party website hosting companies. There are hundreds of web hosting companies to choose from, so why do we use Bluehost and GoDaddy?
Bluehost has great customer service and support, minimal downtime and an easy-to-use industry standard C-Panel interface. Plus, they have some of the most competitive rates in the industry. Bluehost is one of Joomla.org‘s recommended providers, which means the company works hard to keep their servers up to date to make sure they can support the latest and greatest Joomla functions.
GoDaddy is the world’s largest domain name registrar and Web hosting provider. They have more than 12 million customers, and 12 million people can’t be wrong. Right? We at Minor Production give them accolades for their excellent customer service. They offer 24/7/365, round-the-clock customer care operations.
