Web Design for Small- to Mid-sized Business

“I need a Web site. How do I start?”

There are so many considerations for web design and a web site. I truly recommend you not try to go it alone, at least your first time. It’s easy to get confused and frustrated. I know I was when I first started doing more than just writing code for web sites.

Let me break it down as simply as possible.
  1. Domain name
    • is my domain name, my easy-to-find address
    • Domain Registration also includes:
      • domain search
      • registration
      • privacy
      • forwarding/masking
  2. Host
    • This is the plot of land that the easy-to-find address sends users to.
  3. Site
    • This is the actual structure–exterior (home page), rooms (subpages with content)
  4. Email
    • Some people use their free email accounts with Google, Yahoo, etc. However, to look more professional and be taken more seriously, an email associated with your domain name is highly recommended. For example:
  5. SEO

This is a very short list with very long sublists of steps to get a site up and running.
