8. Own Your Domain
OODDA also recommends that all businesses purchase an actual domain name. Some providers offer free ones that come with extensions. But yourbusiness.com tends to be more professional and easy to remember than yourbusiness.wordpress.com. Having trouble registering your own domain? Contact us today for free consultation, please call (909) 468 3671, or email email@example.com.
9. Choose a Reliable Host
There are also plenty of different hosting platforms available. OODDA also provides reliable and afforable web hosting for most web applications. Why not host with us if you decide to let us design your website? See OODDA hosting service detail >>
10. Consider Future Growth
However, if you plan or hope to grow your business quickly, think carefully before choosing a low-cost platform aimed at very small sites. Platforms like Wix and Squarespace can work great for businesses that plan to stay relatively small and use just a few features. But if you ever outgrow them, transferring all of your site content to a new host can be a pain. OODDA offers scalable web design, which makes you website grow without any trouble. Try out our web design service.
11. Get a Designer You Admire
If you are going to hire someone to create your first business website, choose someone who you think fits the style of your business. One of the best ways to do this is to look at those sites that you admire and see who’s responsible for the design. Fell free to make an appointment with our professional UI and Graphic Designers today. (909) 468 3671, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
12. Seek Samples and References
Once you have a few names to consider, take a look at their other work and don’t be afraid to ask for references. Check out websites recently developed by OODDA.
13. Peruse Pre-Made Template
Not every brand new business owner will necessarily have the resources to hire a design team. There are plenty of pre-made themes available for purchase, depending on the web host you’ve chosen. So find a theme that fits with your branding and will allow for small edits down the road. Having trouble registering your own domain? Contact OODDA for detail about our more affordable web design based on pre-made templates, please call (909) 468 3671, or email email@example.com.
14. Stay Away from Free Themes
However, OODDA cautions against businesses choosing free themes for their sites, since they often aren’t as secure as those you purchase.
