Establish your Business Concept ~ once you have your business concept ready to go, you can start setting up your professional online presence.
Firstly Register your domain name.
A domain name is basically an Internet address and will be the address for your site, so register something relevant to your business ~ short, simple and easy to remember. (A good idea is to ask family and friends for feedback or seek out professional advice). Average Domain Price: $10 to $15 per year.You can register a Domain Name through a variety of companies online. We suggest GoDaddy or you can purchase one from the Hosting company that you choose to host your site.
Secondly, Purchase hosting with a compatible host.
To make your Web site visible to the world, it has to be hosted on a Web server.
Our web templates are compatible with the sites listed on our Compatible Carts page. These hosting sites offer an easy to use built in shopping cart and are excellent value for money. We do not set up your hosting account for you.
Thirdly, Purchase your Web Template Design.
A web template is the presentation or design aspect of a website without the content. Choose a template design that reflects and enhances your business and products. We offer Custom Website Design, which means we build your design from scratch with a lot of input from you on things like color, font, layout etc to ensure you have your Dream Website. We also offer OOAK (One of a kind, sold only once), Limited premades (sold 15 times), Unlimited premades (sold an unlimited amount of times) and Budget Designs (a good place to start when on a tight budget).
