Slick Sites provide web hosting options via third party companies with secure, reliable and fast servers located in Australia.

In choosing a web hosting plan, there are a few key considerations, namely data storage, data transfer, bandwidth, databases and scripting technology. Most of our clients don't want to have to try to understand all this jargon and so prefer to have Slick Sites select a suitable plan for them.

The plan we select for you depends on the technical requirements of your website and whether or not you require access to the Control Panel. However, most of our clients prefer us to manage their website for them, enabling them to concentrate on the running of their business.

If your requirements change in the future, we can change the setup to give you full access to and control of your website.

If you already have a preferred web hosting company, we can liaise with them on your behalf. We can advise you on fees and charges, support, disk space, monthly transfers, number of email addresses allowed etc.

What is Web Hosting anyway ?

A web host is a company that provides server space for your website. You rent this space from them in the same way that you would rent an office in a commercial building.

Put simply, the server stores your website and "broadcasts" it to any internet browser where your website's domain name is entered.

Why is the location of the web host's server important ?

Firstly, it is important for the server to be located in a secure location. Secondly, if most of your potential customers are in Australia, there is a slight SEO advantage in having your website hosted on a server located in Australia, as Google gives preference to these websites. These websites will stand a better chance of appearing high on the list of search results.

Examples of our small business websites
"I have a hairdressing business in Epping Sydney, est. since 1995. I am not computer minded, but realised I need to have a web site. After discussing it with several web professionals and constantly putting it in the too hard basket … Alas I met Rona from slicksites…. The entire project ceased being a problem and became an exciting and creative journey. I am a perfectionist and struggle activating live/ progressive documents. Rona has been patient, supportive professional and practical in her development and application of my website. I am so grateful to her and confident to recommend her to my clients and friends."
