Today, most interaction is through the internet. It is not surprising that quite a number of churches are looking for Christian web design & hosting. You would be surprised if you did a search for this term and see the amount of Christian web design & hosting companies out there offering their services.
When it comes to Christian web design & hosting there are obviously two aspects to it – the hosting part of it and the designing itself. Hosting is fairly straightforward. Designing a Christian website on the other hand needs to have more attention as there are certain rules when it comes to designing such a site and these rules should be adhered to.
Things to look out for when choosing a company for your church:
Find out for how long your Christian web design & hosting company has been in business for. A relatively new company may not have the necessary specific capabilities and you may encounter problems later on. Would they be able to handle problems that might arise due to a high volume of traffic? Therefore it might be a good idea to go with a company that has been around for a longer time. Generally the “about us” page will give you an indication of how long they have been in business.
It might not be a bad idea if you could speak to another church in your area who has already set up their website. Maybe they could recommend whom to go with.
Some Christian web design & hosting companies offer a two in one deal and you could save a lot of money thereby. For instance if you host your website at a particular company, they offer you a discounted price for the website designing.
If you require any specialized feature/features you should check with the hosting company whether they provide all of these before you actually make a purchase. You should keep in mind the necessary upgrades you might require later and ask your hosting company if they would be able to accommodate.
