What does a domain name do for you and your business?
- Provides you with an identity.
- Lends a unique cachet.
- Says you and your company are moving forward with the times.
- The design of your site tells visitors, hopefully customers, something about you, your business and your business practices.
- Adds to ‘branding’ of your name.
- Gets people to your site and builds your business.
Names are important and need to make sense for your business, area or customers. You can make a connection with a brick-and-mortar store, your location or your products.
It should . . .
- grab the audience’s attention.
- be memorable.
- ‘do’ the job.
- not be so long, people forget it or mistype it.
- make sense.
If you want to take part in the Internet as a business you have to place the information in a spot on the Internet and provide access. You have to own or rent a piece of cyberspace - also called Hosting.
Choosing a web host is, again, similar to choosing a house to live in or commercial premises to do business. You need to define what it is you require: how much space you need and what features you need.
Web hosting can be very simple and straightforward and once you obtain your space in cyberspace you may never want to let it go. You can easily move your web site where you want as a turtle carries its shell on its back. Always remember you are not stuck in the first web-hosting environment you choose.
