When launching a website, you will need a place to host (or house) the webpages that make up your website.

Website Hosting Services
You will need to secure hosting services from a reputable service. Most hosting services will also provide domain name registration and email accounts. Key things to look for when selecting a hosting service for your church’s website are:

  • Reliability or “up” time at 99.9%
  • Provides redundant connectivity
  • High security protocols
  • Server space of 1 GB or more
  • Data transfer rates of 300 Mbps or better
  • Allows virtual hosting of your domain
  • FTP access
  • 24/7 customer support
  • Monthly site traffic reports

Some hosting services that churches are using include:

With hosting services, it’s a good idea to browse other church websites and identify the ones you like the best. Then, make a call or send an email to these churches to inquiry about the website design and hosting services they use.
