Hi, I’m Darryl. Nice to meet you.

Times change fast I know. The business of web design is forever changing and incredibly competitive. Some web design companies wont lift a finger without up front retainer fees. Others refuse to allow the clients into the back end of the site to learn to do things on their own.

The Nuts & Bolts

I have put together this list for you to go through to get yourself acquainted with various details regarding what comes together during this process. You will be happy to know that there items you should know about initially and you can forget about them later (just background working stuff).

Domains
Selecting a domain should be done on a computer at any of the domain registration companies. GoDaddy I think may be the biggest one. Each domain registration company has a domain name checker usually right on the front page of their site for you to type yours in and see if it’s taken. They do try to help by listing suggestions too. You need to do this on the computer to make sure the domain you want to use is available. More than likely your perfect top level domain is already taken. A top level domain, the generic one word category of your business. For instance if you have a bicycle shop, www.bicycle.com would be the best generic top level domain to have for search engines. Because you’re not likely to find your top level domain available, you need to get creative and try using the actual name of your company if it makes sense online. Remember, your trying to use a domain that makes it easy to remember your site and is easy to find online with search engines. For instance www.bicycles.com makes more sense than www.aubreyswheels.com although aubreyswheels would be just fine, it may be better to try aubreysbicycles.com. your domain does not have to match your company name exactly. Lots of companies have different names online simply for the same reason. And yes if you’re thinking can I have more than one? The answer is yes. That’s leads to another topic of forward domain so versus a mirror site.

Hosting

In order for your website to be found by the public it has to be hosted. You want a hosting company that utilizes digital cloud-based servers. These provide the best up time and usually the fastest loading time. You will find most of these companies have already moved on to the Cloud-based servers but you want to ask to be sure. When you do eventually start looking for a hosting company, be prepared for an effort by them to sell you ad ons and products that will multiply your bill exponentially. Normally, all you should need is just the hosting for your one single site. All too often I have seen clients who have paid for shared hosting and didn’t even realize it. Shared hosting is used for multiple websites.
Here at 2upnorth, we normally host our clients websites.

Wordpress platform

The WordPress platform is used by nearly half of all websites. This is primarily due to how easily it is available and it’s free! It’s a very clean and intuitive program. There are many user groups and forums  where you can find answers to many questions. WordPress is very SEO friendly also. It is comprised of posts and pages. This is very helpful because posts allow you to continually update your site while pages are well suited for more static information.

I use WordPress because of all these features and more. Best of all, it allows me to teach the user to assist in managing their website after I build  it.

Security

A secure platform is important. WordPress offers a very secure  platform along with additional plugins that allow added security.  Google recently required all sites to use the secure protocol https: which means the site has a t least a secure certification of its owner. More security requires higher level certification depending on what your trying to secure. If you have e-commerce on your site security will be a bigger issue than if you don’t.
