Webhosts

Post by Hobbyist » Mon Jun 25, 2018 1:28 pm

Do webhosts provide instructions on how to use "contact" "sign up" "register" and similar commands on their websites? Do they provide information on making your website searchable on the internet?

I am asking for recommendations from the experienced users which webhosts are intuitive for beginners and pros alike. Any recommendations and general information would be helpful.

I am in New York by the Great Lakes. Are you implying I should use a local company? I definitely would prefer a webhost that covers national and international as well with equal priority. I am not marketing locally. With the use of Ebay i would hope to find a national market.

It wont make a difference were you host from, after all the internet is already a international market, it is really how you market and promote yourself or the goods you sell.

Personally, I would be using a host/server provider from with my own country of origin why? time difference is one, cost is two (exchange rates, vat, sales tax). Another point you would need to consider is if for talking sake you host from any of the EU (European Union) countries you would/will need to comply to GDPR regulations even if you are in the USA again if you host for your country of origin USA and you are selling globally example EU you are still required to comply.

On your original question regarding the use of contact, sign up or registration forms that you may have have built with the software, then I think most host will not provide any help/assistance with there function as this is down to you to understand the use and not part of the hosting package you have bought with them.
Do they provide information on making your website searchable on the internet?
For this you would submit your site to all of the search engines Google, Bing, Yahoo (don't quote me sone hosts may do this for you). Then sit back and wait for the bots/spiders to go out and find your site, this wont be instant, it can take weeks and know at times months (Not software related). Also good SEO can benefit you (note this is something that is not offered here) with ranking and page position when searched for.

In that case GoDaddy is what I recommend to you. I thought you were UK/EU based.
