Reserving a Domain Name

While registering a domain name is absolutely crucial when creating a website, it is as simple as it is quick to do, so long you already have some idea of what you would like to call your website. Entirely unique, a domain name is indeed what allows Internet users to find you on the web at a dedicated address. It is therefore important to put care into its selection so it will match your image and occupation as well as possible.

An extension must be added to the name itself in the form of ‘.com’, ‘.fr’, ‘.shop’, etc. Many options are now available and should allow you to find the closest domain to suit your needs. Thus, even if ‘example.com’ is already held by somebody else, you may instead reserve ‘example.org’ to create your website.

Choosing a Host

For a website to be available on the Internet at all times, it needs to be ‘hosted’.

This will allow your website to offer the optimal amount of storage to correspond to the use you will make of it. The services of a web host will also ensure that your website remains accessible based on expected traffic.

Several options are available depending on the Pack you selected. You can have one or several websites hosted and benefit from scalable storage so you can never run out. We also include SSL certificates, unlimited bandwidth and e-mail tech support with all our offers.

  • Create your website’s pages;
