Building Your Own Online Store (Hosting, domain, support)

Where to start?

domain

1

REGISTER A DOMAIN NAME

Choose a name that’s short, catchy, and easy to remember. It should also be unique, since the most obvious names are already taken. Look up a domain registration company and try different names until you find one that satisfies you and isn’t already in use.

  • If the name your heart is set on is already taken, get creative. Spell numbers out, add a small extra word or try hyphenation.
  • The domain registration service will provide suggestions for close alternatives if the name you want is taken.

 

2

CHOOSE A WEB HOSTING SERVICE

It’s worth finding a good service for your website, since the site is the backbone of your online store. If it’s finicky, sales will certainly suffer. Free web hosting services are available, but since you’re selling products online, you’ll need to pay for a service that offers the options you need.

  • You’ll need enough space for growth if your business does well.
  • Choose a hosting service that allows for customization if you’re planning on doing your own programming.

DESIGN YOUR WEBSITE

Either design the website on your own or hire a web designer to create it for you. The emphasis should be on showcasing your product and making it as easy as possible for customers to make a purchase. Don’t fall into the trap of making the website too flashy – the more straightforward, the better when it comes to online shopping.

  • Include a way to gather email addresses, so you can send advertisements and special offers.
  • The customer should have to make no more than two clicks to check out with a product.
  • Choose just a few colors and fonts to use.

 

CHOOSE E-COMMERCE SOFTWARE

This allows customers to view products and make a secure purchase. The software stores customer information and financial information. In some cases, e-commerce software factors into marketing, since it can be used to send emails to customers. Take a lot of time to research companies before making a choice, since the one you choose will play a huge role in your customers’ experience and your company’s success.

SET UP A MERCHANT ACCOUNT

You’ll need to set up an account with a bank financial institution so that your customers can pay with credit cards. Going with a bank can be pricey, so many small online store owners go with PayPal as a less expensive option.

 

Now, there are 2 options. You can do all that on your own or let us do it for you  😀 

 

It doesn’t matter if you already have your own design or you want to use some template for e-shop, we can install, manage, support and monitor your site 24/7 everyday. Also, we offer basic to advanced web hosting and we can register your domain for you.
