We can put your business on the Internet. This begins with the search for, and purchase of a domain. With a domain your business can be reached on the Internet. Domain names link your business name or brand to your website. If your desired domain name is taken, choosing it with a different domain suffix might be an option, or you can offer to purchase it from the owner.
We strongly suggest implementation of an SSL (Secure Socket Layer) certificate to build trust with your customers, and the information they enter is secure when using your website. Using SSL requires a certificate issued by a valid authority, which also informs your visitor they are on a validated website, and that you care about securing their information submitted through your site.
To protect your personal information, it is ALWAYS recommended to purchase private registration when acquiring your domain, to hide your name, address, and email from the public WHOIS databases. This reduces exposure of your personal and company information, which is required to confirm ownership but will be hidden from easy public access. WITHOUT adding privacy, your information, including name, location /address, and emails of all three contacts: technical, administrative, and registered owner of the domain is open to anyone who using WHOIS to search your domain.
When your domain is registered and secured, you can then use it to link visitors to a website. The website needs to be hosted somewhere. We offer web hosting packages based on your budget, expected traffic, and what you want to do with your website. Once your website is designed and built, you will need to find a place to store entered information such as orders, and to update your files when visitors interact with your website.
We offer many types of hosting, options include dedicated Virtual Private Servers, shared hosting, and managed WordPress hosting. Though you can find website hosting for free, you then allow the host to brand your website with their information somewhere on your website. With free or not, all website hosting requires some maintenance, security measures, and updates, which is done to prevent hackers and malicious attacks so we also have packages that include website backups, automatic updates and security.
Once your domain is active and you have secured hosting of your website content, you can now create a website to promote your business, sell your products, services, or to share information with your customers. We can do this with your input to incorporate your social media presence and build a website that meets your vision for your business goals.
