Part of our one-stop-shop services!



Although your domain name is the smallest part of the website equation from a cost point of view, it is actually the most important.Proper hosting service is what makes your website visible on the internet.

  • Each website has its own unique website "address".
    . For example, if you choose www.mydomainname.com, no one else can use that as long as you pay the yearly fee for that name so that it doesn't expire.
  • The date on which you register your domain name becomes the date on which everything is based.
  • Even if you transfer your domain name from one Registrar to another, the initial registration date stays with the domain name.
  • For instance, if you registered www.mydomainname.com for a one-year term on January 1st, 2022, it would expire on January 1st, 2023.
  • If you transferred it to another Registrar on June 1, 2022, it would still have an expiry date of January 1st, 2023.
  • The transfer will incur a fee equivalent to a one year registration cost, but the transfer process adds one year onto your original expiry date of January 1, 2023, to become January 1, 2024.
  • There are many different "extensions" available for the same name, though. For example, even though www.mydomainname.com might be taken, perhaps www.mydomainname.ca, or www.mydomainname.net is not.
  • The most popular domain names are .com, .ca, .net and .org, as well as many more.
  • There are many " Country" extensions where you must live in that country in order to use that extension. For example, .ca is for Canada, .us is for the United States, .au is for Australia, etc.
  • Your domain name does not have to be the same as your business name. Choosing a domain name that includes your business " keywords" can often be very beneficial when it comes to internet searches. For example, a domain name of www.amw.com does not tell anyone who you are or what you do. Choosing www.allmywidgets.com tells people that you deal in widgets.
  • Most people register their domain name for a one year period, although you can renew for up to 9 years all at the same time.
  • No matter which domain name you choose, make sure that no one in your market area has the same or similar name, although with a different extension, which could confuse your potential customers.


Lots of extras included!

  • Your website becomes visible on the internet when it is "hosted" on your hosting service provider's server.
  • There are several services that are available through a hosting server, but many server providers charge extra for them.
  • As a way of keeping costs down to our customers whenever possible, Affordable Calgary Web, as part of the Affordable Web Design Ltd network, offers a lot of those services within the overall yearly hosting fee.
  • We contract with a very reputable server provider and we do all the technical steps to upload your website to the server.
  • We take care of all troubleshooting when necessary.
  • Our server services are charged on a yearly basis and you don't have to try to remember when it's time to renew - we will renew on your behalf and simply bill you the yearly fee when it comes timne for hosting service renewal.
  • SSL Certificates are important to add an extra layer of security to your website to fight against hackers.
  • As of a few years ago, Google came out with a directive that made it important to your website SEO ranking to display a little lock symbol, showing that your site is secured through an SSL certificate.
  • We have however noticed many websites which do not display that little symbol - this means that whoever is looking after that website has not included this very important step.
  • Many of our competitors will offer SSL certificates but you need to pay extra for them, usually averaging around $200 a year for the certificate.
  • We include one for free on all our hosted websites.
  • It has been mentioned in many places on the internet that professional looking websites should never display free email addresses, such as Gmail or Hotmail on your website.
  • We offer free email service (usually up to 5 individual email addresses) associated with your domain name. For example, info@mydomainame.com, sales@mydomainname.com, accounts@mydomainname.com, etc.
  • We do backups on all our client websites several times a day so that you don't lose your information in case of any kind of malfunction. This service is included in our yearly hosting service.
  • Many hosting providers will charge extra for this service.
