What is the best system solution for my business?

The type of infrastructure you deploy depends on what you want to achieve and how quickly? A notebook or laptop is great if you are using your computer in the office as a desktop and you need to take it home or away with you. A desktop is the best option if you want speed and a large screen.

What is web hosting?

Web hosting is like Internet real estate — if you want to build a house, you need a place to build it and roads to get to it. Similarly, if you want to build a website, you need server space to store your files and bandwidth (speed) to access your site. There are many different web hosting companies out there with varying prices. Many of our clients choose a web hosting company depending on their needs and budget. We will help you work out the best option.

What is a domain name and why do I need to register one?

A domain name is a "unique" name used to identify and locate computers on the Internet. Domain names provide a system of easy-to-remember Internet addresses which are translated by DNS (Domain Name Servers) into numeric IP (Internet Protocol) addresses used by the Internet. A domain name is unique and allows you to have an "identity" on the Internet. Domain names form the basis of the common Internet naming scheme. For example, www.etechsystems.com.au is a domain name.
