Slightly more complex basic business needs for Small Office and Home Office businesses
You're going to need a domain name registrar for domain name registration and web hosting.
A domain name registrar is an accredited business that handles the reservation of domain names and basic domain name management.
Web hosting allows businesses, organizations, and individuals to make their websites or apps visible on the internet.
Name Cheap Domain Names
You're going to need a domain name or you may already have one. Surely you have heard of "Go Daddy". They were great at one time, however, that time is long gone. Here are a few reasons why we like NameCheap:

- You can buy domain names for as low as 99 cents!
- The user interface is very simple and intuitive.
- You can transfer your domain names in from other registrars (ie. Go Daddy) with ease.
- They are USA based in Phoenix Arizona.

You're going to need web hosting. Not just for your website, but for several other critical items. Over the years, we have tried them all. There are varying levels of hosting depending on how complex your project is, but most small business websites, ecommerce websites and more will do well here.
