DOMAIN REGISTRATION. Is the process of registering a domain name, which identifies one or more IP addresses with a name that is easier to remember and use in URLs to identify particular Web pages. The person or business that registers the domain name is called the domain name registrant. The cost of the domain registration is $19.97/year. Includes ICANN (the Internet Corporation of Assigned Names and Numbers) charges, a mandatory annual fee of $0.18 for each year of domain registration, renewal or transfer.
HOSTING SERVICES. A web host, or web hosting service provider, is a business that provides the technologies and services needed for the website or webpage to be viewed in the Internet. Websites are hosted, or stored, on special computers called servers.
The cost of shared hosting services is $15/month (must be paid via automatic monthly deductions from a debit/credit card), or you may choose to save $84 by paying one year in advance ($96) which is only a budget of $8/mo.
SSL CERTIFICATE. An SSL Certificate (Secure Sockets Layer), also called a Digital Certificate, creates a secure link between a website and a visitor’s browser. By ensuring that all data passed between the two remains private and secure, SSL encryption prevents hackers from stealing private information such as credit card numbers, social security numbers, names, addresses, usernames and passwords.
Organizations must use an SSL certificate to secure their site if they wish to take online payments or expect their visitors to submit confidential information. Besides building trust and security into your website, SSL certificates also help with SEO efforts now that Google is providing a rankings boost for pages that are served over https (“S” stands for security) instead of the usual http. Our cost: $75/ year, plus a one-time installation fee of $24.
UPDATES/CHANGES: To make changes/updates to your website, we only charge $45/hour. Minimum 1 hour, then 30 min. increments.
3 Reasons Websites Are Vital for Small Businesses
Running your own business is no easy task, and your to-do-list is guaranteed to never end. This said, you shouldn’t use this as an excuse to take short cuts when it comes to having online visibility. Beginning with your website, it’s vital to position yourself online with a strong, professional destination that gives customers the impression you mean business and the motivation to want to engage more with your business. With this in mind, consider these three reasons why having a strong website is important.
1. First Impressions Count
We live in a world where people Google before they shop, visit online review sites like Yelp before they buy and “check-in” via Facebook as they go about their days. Because of this, you want your first impression to be the best it can be. Beginning with your website, consumers are passing judgement and making decisions if they will even visit your store, restaurant or office. They’re likely to dismiss you entirely, as well, should they believe your website doesn’t reflect the kind of experience your business – or a business like yours – should offer.
2. Window Shopping Isn’t What It Use to Be
Strolling down your local Main Street isn’t the only way people check out stores and other small businesses nowadays. With routine visits to Yahoo, Bing, Google, Yelp and other online sites, customers are constantly seeking where they plan to make their next purchases. Make sure your business is well represented on these sites by first and foremost, having a website – but by also being represented among each of the online search engines, review sites and other online spots your business may be considered for customer review. Beyond having your URL address available, also be sure your street address, phone number and email is easily visible. Social media links can’t hurt, either, but only include these if you are actually active on social media.
3. No Website Means Losing Business
By now it’s clear that if you don’t have a website, you’re missing out on opportunities for customers to identify who you are and if they want to spend money with you. This said, if you have a bad website it is better to have no website. While no website equals missed opportunities, a bad website can actually be worse since it literally makes your business look bad. With so many template based websites available nowadays, such as Shopify.com, for you to customize for your unique business, there’s truly no excuse for your website to look unprofessional and sloppy. If you can’t proudly promote the website you have currently live and available for the world to see online, take it down. A bad website is far worse than no website – but let’s be clear… both are bad for business.
