What Is Hosting?
Your website consists of a large amount of code, files, and pictures. This is all stored within a database that lives on a server. The server is basically a giant powerful computer that is made up of various hardware. This hardware determines how fast your host is. Your website's resources need to 'live' somewhere. A host is where that website/email (database) lives.

What is website Content?
Every word, picture, or illustration found on a website is considered website content. It is also incredibly important and controls every bit of your on-page SEO. The more unique content that you have, the better Google and other search engines will rank your website. This means that if you can explain what your business does in your own words on your site while keeping the competitor research in mind, your website could rank well based on your specific industry and patience.

Who's writing the website content? 
It is always more beneficial if you write your own content. This will make the content accurate and unique. We offer writing services at a price based on the number of words and topics you provide. Please keep in mind that we will never be able to explain what you do, better than you. 

Writing Service Cost & Requirements 
-$100 for 500 words.
-$150 for 1000 words
Each package includes 2 revisions.

What is a Domain?
Your domain is what you will type in to visit your website. 
Example: www.jabstract.net

Having trouble picking a domain name?
Picking your domain name can be hard not only due to the name may be taken but because the name is permanent. We can always purchase another domain name and point it towards your website but you should be strategic with naming your website. Consider the following when deciding:
Location
  Your location is vital regarding local SEO. Sometimes businesses put FL or Winter Haven in the name to geographically benefit from their domain name.

Domain Extension:
  .com | .net | .org are all domain extensions that have different purposes.
.com is the most common and the most sought after. .org is commonly used for organizations or websites that consist of a community. You are not limited to choosing from these 3 domain extensions, these are just examples. 
You may notice that most government websites end in .gov and most educational/school websites end in .edu. 

Our hosting includes up to 5 domain-based email accounts. We do not store your email on our servers but rather forward all mail that comes through our servers to a personal email address. (Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail, etc.) 

What is a domain-based email address?

Why is having a domain-based email important?
If your customers or clients consist of regular people or normal consumers, it is in your best interest to stand out from the crowd by NOT having a Gmail, Hotmail, or Yahoo email address for your business. Some people refuse to do business with a company that has a Gmail email because it indicates that a basic level of professionalism has not been obtained... Yet!
If your customers or clients consist of other businesses, having a domain-based email is almost required. In the world of business, the odds of getting a response from an email with a Hotmail or Gmail signature attached to it are very slim.

Do your business a favor and host with us to receive all the benefits of being a professional.

PPC vs Organic Traffic

The effectiveness of this strategy depends on the type of business you have, the budget, and the placement of the ad you are creating.  You can spend a little bit of money and get a ton of traffic and you can spend a ton of money on and get little traffic.
