Choosing the correct domain
If your company
decided to open your site in Internet, first you should do is to
register a domain name. Taking decision about the name of your future
site is quite a serious process. The main criteria it should sound the
same as your company. The properly chosen domain will allow your
permanent and potential clients to remember it. When you took a
decision make a small test. Before registering your domain name call your acquaintances (take about 3 people), those who does not know
your company, ask him/her write down the domain name without spelling
it. So people should manage to write it without spelling.
Register domain name. Shell you delegate someone to register domain?
who proceeded the procedure knows that after registration you owes
domain for 1 or 2 years and can open sub domain for branches of your
company. Registering your domain name for corporative purposes use only
dot com, dot biz or special for your country. The procedure of
registration is very simple and takes about 3 minutes. You can use pay
pal to register domain or other payment systems. Hosting for domain you
can purchase from registrar or from hosting company which can provide
you discount domain name registry.
hoster company will provide you with data of DNS server to place it in
your admin panel. I want to predict you from doing a mistake «never ask
your host to register domain for your» not all the hosting providers
are icann accredited domain name registrar.
Better do it yourself to be sure that domain is registered officially
and under your company name. Remember domain is your asset. When you
invest your money in promoting your web site, be sure it will increase
capitalization of your company. If you decide to sell your company,
domain name and your web site will be in the package of your assets.
Long run after registration
for me I like hosting providers who gives you good management panel,
where you can manage your files, Content Management System. In this
panel you can add and manage you mail accounts. It is very convenient
especially for such not professional user like me. My provider has very
polite and professional support team, so don't be afraid to be alone in
the forest. There is no devil as he is painted. Try to read manuals
forums for the topic and doors will be opened for you.
