Hosting is where your website lives. Websites actually live on servers, along with the data on or submitted to the website.
Domains are the address for the website. Sometimes they look like an “IP Address” (199.00.000.00), but much more commonly they look like a URL (https://kovir.org).
Fun fact, the “s” in “https” is for security certificate. Sites with the S have been verified and are considered safe to click around on. If a site does not have an S, we don’t recommend giving it any of your information.
In web world, you might have heard the terms UX and UI – user experience and user interface.
User interface is about the structure and design of something – anything! A plane, a building, and yes, your website.
User experience is a newer term used only for digital spaces and it is founded on the concept of human centered design (akin to person-centered work). User experience is about the journey, the feelings, the desire to come back.
We take both of these into consideration when designing your site. We’ll add features and plugins where it will be helpful, and we will remove things that are causing negative experiences for your interface.
We also like to have your users test out the site and provide feedback. We’ve found that getting the ideal user USING the space just makes sense but is often skipped.
And finally, we run a complimentary ADA compliance and accessibility test on your dreams-come-true site. Inclusion is high on our values, and in some cases it’s the law – either way, we have you covered.
