Get yourself some online real estate.
We'll help you build your home, or you can do it yourself.
Hosting and Domains
Building a website is similar to building a house. First you have to put some thought into what kind of house you want and what you plan to do in it. You then have to pick a location to build it. On the internet, this is called a domain name.
You can get started right now.
Let us know what domain you want and if it hasn't been taken already, you may reserve it for $20.00 a year.
What's in a name?
Choosing the right name can make all the difference for your small business website. We tell our clients to stick to this rule: make it easy to say, easy to spell and easy to remember. If you need some ideas, let us know.
Dot-com vs. dot-whatever
It's simple: .com says it all. If you have a business website, it should be a .com. Why? Because most people will automatically assume that your internet address ends in .com - even if you are not based in the USA. In short, if you can find a .com that works for you, grab it.
Are you a dot-org?
.org is for organizations. Internet etiquette dictates that you really should not run a for-profit business on a .org domain. It is perfectly alright to run an e-commerce site for a non-profit or a not-for-profit organization on a .org. Note: If you are an organization and want to buy a .org, you should also purchase the .com to prevent others from using it.
Not from around here?
No problem. We host websites from around the world and can help you find a domain in any country. We are happy to discuss hosting any domain that is not porn, military or drug related.
