Understanding Website Maintenance Costs
We get it. Website maintenance costs can be confusing. So I paid someone for my domain name, does that cover my hosting? What is website hosting, do I need it? What’s the difference between paying $6.99/month versus $300/month for hosting? How often should I get billed for website hosting? How often do I have to renew my domain name? Who should I have listed as my administrative or technical contact on my domain name? Do I need to buy variations of my domain name? Is it okay if I buy a domain name that doesn’t end in .com? Will my website need maintenance? Do I need to patch my website? Will my website get hacked? What’s a fair price to pay for website maintenance? Do I need to pay for ongoing search engine optimization? What kind of search engine optimization (SEO) services make sense for my business?
