Frequently Asked Questions
How do I go about moving my business on the web?
Here's the process in a nutshell. Choose your domain name. Contract for web design service. Collaborate with them to have them do the following: write the content, design, and develop the site. Upload the html files and the graphics to the web host server, test, and debug. Be sure to register your new site with search engines and directories. Start link exchanges and keep up with site maintenance. It's never ending process. Just like anything else, more love and care you put into your site, more successful and visible your site will be!
How do I pick a domain name?
If you're serious building an Internet business, you should own your own domain name. Dot com is the best if you can get it. It still is the one people go to first when they do their search.
Make your domain name catchy and memorable like Yahoo!. Or use your keywords in your domain name like promoteyourwebsite.com. Go to WhoIs.net and search for domain names that used to be registered but are now expired. You can see the domain names that contain a certain keyword and are available now.
How do I choose my web hosting company?
If you're doing everything yourself, be careful of signing up for a very cheap service. Either their service is very limited, or they typically charge every little features separately, and you end up paying more. Make sure you do a little research. Try calling or e-mailing at their technical support and see how long it takes to get response from them. Webmail is great when you're on vacation. Here are some features you want to look for in your web hosting service.

5 GB monthly data transfer
24/7/365 technical support
Unlimited e-mail forwarding
