Once your website is built, you will need a host. In a nutshell, your website’s "home" is rented on a host server that is fast, reliable, and always connected to the internet. When you contract NetPotential, we can also help you out with hosting both your website and your email for a small monthly fee.
We only host sites that we build or manage, and we do this so we can provide the best quality service and security for your website.
Our backup plan is rock solid. Even if a jumbo jet hit our datacentre (God forbid!) your website would still be safe, well sure it'd be offline for a wee while while we got up and running somewhere else, but it wouldn't be lost forever because we backup your data to multiple locations.
Already have a host? As long as your hosting company is equipped to handle our technology, your website can stay right where it is. We will be happy to check this out for you.
If your site has a product catalogue, shopping cart, or directory style listings, then you will require a database to store / retrieve those items and enable the website to dynamically display them. The benefits of using a database are that you are able to manage your products and stock without manually updating each listing. Like you need website hosting, you also need to host the database. The cost SQL Server hosting will depend on the size of the database.
Your domain = your home on the worldwide web. We can take care of all your technical worries including the registration of your domain(s) e.g. www.yourcompany.co.nz.
Having your own domain not only gives you a website address, but you also get the ability to use your domain for email addresses. Very professional! We can register domains on your behalf. You will always be the owner of your domain, not us. We charge $39.95 + GST per year for domain registration.
