How To Get Your Business Website Setup – what you need to know

This is the first in a series of posts which will look at exactly what you need to know in order to get a website for yourself or your business up and running .

Did you know that more people look up Business services using online search facilities like Google than Yellow pages?

If you run a small to medium size business you can not afford not to have a website or web page advertising your services and products online.

So what should you be looking for when you want to get a website built for your business?

Step 1 – Domain Name Registration

A domain name is basically the internet address of your website. It is a unique name in a standard format which is translated into an IP address number that points to your web page.

Domain names are registered through a registrar and they are issued and controlled by a global regulatory body ICANN – Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers.

An example of a domain name is banoncom.com and banoncom.com.au. The .au signifies a country code and so .com.au is referred to as a ccTLD or country code Top Level Domain.

When looking for a domain name there there are several tools which can be utilised, most domain name registrars have a search tool which will tell you if it is available.

We can save you time and money – let us do the domain name searching and registration for you.

For best SEO results a domain name should have the targeted keyword/s as part of the name, for example : plumbing.com.au or gregs-plumbing.com.au. Although this is not necessary it can give an edge for search engine rankings. The other alternative is to use your business name only such as banoncom.com.au.

If you are a business in Australia then a ccTLD would be most appropriate. To register a .au domain name you must have an ABN. You can however register a TLD such as .com, org, .net, .info and .biz without an ABN.

Registering a domain name is the first step in getting a website up and running. In the next post we will discuss the next step – website hosting.
