Website Hosting and Websites

Setting up your website and website hosting is essential to the success of your business. Getting it right the first time can save you money and headaches. Here's how

Register your domain name

irst consider what domain name you want. This is your website address. Your domain name should be no more than 15 letters and should be catchy and remeberable. Next check to see if your domain name is available. Once you have registered your name, it will be valid for 1 year.

Hosting of your website and emails

Next you need to choose a good hosting company. The comapny must guarantee at least 99% uptime and should offer technical support. When choosing a plan, consider how many emails you will be getting. This all takes up space on your hosting plan.

Control Panel

When choosing your hosting, determine what control panel is offered on which you will be managing your site. We find that C-Panel is the best option for our clients and is easy to use and accessible.

Building your website

Once you have your domain name and hosting, you are ready to build your site. Determine what platform you wish to use. We use wordpress, due to all its features and options. 

Search engine optimisation

Dont forget about search engine optimisation. Just because you have a site, does not mean that you will be on google. You have to register a google search console account and submit your site to google. A good option is to install yoast as your SEO plugin.
