Web Hosting Overview
If your company has business cards, sales literature and people, it needs a Website. Your online window to the world is the means by which customers, prospects and partners wish to view you, even as just a complement to letters, faxes and the more traditional ways of communicating.
To a company new to the Internet, getting a Website can be a confusing experience, and often costly. That isn’t the case with Sonic Host. Our packages start from the basics: getting you a domain name, which is your dot-com address. You can have your first Website up in minutes with little costs involved. If you already have a Website hosted in-house or with another supplier, you may be paying too much and not getting the features and reliability you need. Try out our online demo to see what you just might be missing.
