Getting a Website

Is your company one of the 51 percent of Australian small businesses without a website? Did you know that getting online is as easy as 1-2-3? And then there’s a bonus fourth step promoting your site.

LETS START WITH SOME BASICS THERE ARE FOUR SIMPLE STEPS

So where do you start?

  • 1. Get a Domain Name

    That’s the yourbusiness.com web address by which people find your website. Think of it as an online street address. It’s called a URL (Uniform Resource Locator – not that this matters) and it’s your unique identifier. There are various “extensions”, such as .com, .net, .org and there is also the option to add the region on the end (.au, .uk, etc).

    When you register your domain name, it’s like your licence to use the specific web address for a period of time. It’s best to use your company name, if you can. That way, people can “guess” your URL if they know the name of your company.

  • 2. Web Site & Email Hosting

    Once you get your domain name, you will be looking for a web host. Put simoply, this is a company that rents server space for your website. It’s like leasing an office or shopfront. There are various different website hosting packages, so it pays to shop around.
    But beware, if something looks too good to be true, it probably is. There are some very cheap hosting options out there, but they don’t always offer the reliability and customer service you may need.

  • 3. Website Design
