Starting your Business Online is easy


With the proliferation of internet a website is must have for businesses. Websites can act as an online brochure explaining your business and your value proposition to your prospective customers or in case of E-commerce website act a shopping front for your business. If you have that marvellous idea in your head and you are wondering how to go about bringing your business online this article is a basic step by step guide on how to set up your own website, from choosing a name to putting web pages live on the Internet.

Step 1- Domain Name:


Domain names are web address of your website – For example UKHOSTING.UK.COM is our domain name. You will need to think about a proper and powerful domain name which you will use for your business. It is beneficial to choose a domain name that is the same name as your business or gives people an idea of what you sell i.e. www.abc-limited.com or ukhosting.uk.com (Selling hosting services in UK market). Once you have some ideas on what will be the name of your business on internet you will need to officially register it through domain name registration providers such as us.

We have a domain name search tool on every page which lets you search for domain name availability. You simply need to type in your desired domain name in the search box:

Once you click on search button our system will check possible domain available to register and give you option to register if it is available:

step2

In this case mybusinessname.me.uk and mybusinessname.org.uk is available to register. Domains such as mybusinessname.com and mybusinessname.co.uk are not available in this case.

Please check the names you will like to register and click on Add domains to basket. (It is also beneficial to register .co.uk, .com, .net domains at the same time so that no one else can register it later and you remain owner for those domains).

When you will click on Add domains to basket next screen will take you to the next step which is hosting the domain. For website to show up on internet you actually need to save your files on server which sends them to visitors when they type www.mybusinessname.me.uk (Your domain) in their browser. When you access a web page on the Internet, the page is sent (electronically) to your computer from a server - a large piece of IT equipment, each capable of storing thousands of web pages. The servers are capable of sending out web pages to many people at the same time.

So next step really is to, find some space on server which will store your web pages to be sent out to people when they type in your domain name in their browser. This is primarily called hosting the website and may be independent of domain name registration. Means you can have different providers for domain name and hosting.

Step 2- Hosting your domain:


We provide complete solutions from Domain registration to hosting and web design as well.Once you will click on Add domains to basket button you will be taken to screen which will ask to choose your hosting options:
