StudioThought offers hosting for every website design we do. You are not obligated to use our hosting, however, when you host with us you get a variety of benefits. By allowing us to host your site, it allows us to have quick and easy access to maintain your site. In addition, we also install several security features when we host at no extra charge. This is done to PROTECT your website from being hacked. The monthly option of hosting is to help small businesses who may not have the full yearly fee upfront. However, if you would rather be billed annually, click this link for that option.
