Website Necessities

Every website must have a domain, hosting & SSL certificate:

  • a domain – also known as an address or URL
  • hosting – where the website is stored and made available on the internet
  • an SSL Certificate
    • SSL is not compulsory but is necessary to keep your visitors safe
    • Google ranks sites with SSL higher
    • Without an SSL, the website shows as ‘Not Secure’ in the browser and ranks lower on Google
