Ignore the technical stuff...
We're guessing you don't want to know about the technical details of hosting your web site. Never mind trying and understand them.
Host your web site with Anyware, and we'll take care of everything.
You don't need to hold for 20 minutes before talking to an ISP just to open a hosting account. You don't need to try and figure out how to order a domain name from an IT company that only speeks geek. And you don't need to buy software to upload your web site.
What is a domain name?
Read the article that explains what a domain name is and how it can help you:
Once you've read this article you'll understand the importance of a domain. However, it's one more thing you need to remember, because if you don't remember to renew your domain when it comes due you may find you no longer have a live website. There's also quite a bit of technical jargon that goes with a domain, and when things go wrong it can be a nightmare getting it fixed if youdon't knowwhat you're doing. We can manage that for you, making sure your domain is renewed on time and looking after any technical glitches. To properly appreciate the value of this you really need to experience something going wrong when you don't have good support.
Use your own domain name for your email address.
Many ISP's like you to use an email address like email@example.com because you advertise their business for them. We'll make it easy for you to use an email address like so you advertise your own business.
We'll put your web site on a fast, reliable web server that's lives in New Zealand.
Any time you have a problem with your web site, you can call us and we'll fix it. "Get it working again" type problems won't cost you anything to fix - it's part of the service.
Every month we'll send you a comprehensive, but easy to understand, web traffic report that tells you how well your web site is doing. We'll filter out all the confusing rubbish most ISP web traffic reports show you.
Our web hosting packages come with a monthly web stats report that is emailed to you. We filter out all the unnecessary technical information - our clients tell us they are easy to read.
We've found that when we provide these reports via a web site, nobody bothers to go and look at them.
But when you find them sitting in your inbox every month you'll scan them, file them and you know how your web site is performing.
When your web site needs a database you need a hosting package that includes a MySQL database and extra disk space.
We can give you access to our Content Manager. It's an easy to use web site editor that lets you change your web site yourself. You can change the things you want to change, it doesn't let you change things that might break your web site, and it doesn't let you waste time on things that make no difference.
No technical expertise required and training takes about 10 minutes.
