Putting your small company online is a great way to market yourself to a larger client base. This process does require a few steps, one of which is to choose a website registrar company. A website registrar company is a company where you purchase your domain name and publish your website through.
Before searching for a website registrar company you need to gather some information. You want to know roughly what kind of web space you will need, giving you a better idea of how large of a website to create. You will want to know:
- how large of a website do you want (how many pages)
- will there be online ordering or online payments made
- how much web content will you have
- what kind of web content will you have (videos, images, text, etc.)
There are a few different companies with different website packages to choose from. Here are some companies:
This company offers domain names, email, web analytics, web hosting, and web design. They have web packages from $11 up per month for you to choose from.
This company offers $1.99 domain names with any non-domain purchase. They also offer hosting, email, site builders, and SSL certificates.
This company offers domain names, web hosting, email, ecommerce, SSL certificates, online marketing, design services, and business apps, with basic packages starting at $9.29 a month.
This company offers domain names, web hosting, SSL certificates, email, marketing tools, and website building advice, packages starting at $13.99 per month.
With each company, compare prices and packages. You don't want to buy something you don't need. For example, if you don't want marketing or design help, you can purchase a basic package that just includes a domain name and web hosting. On the other hand, if you want help designing your website and marketing it to clients, look for a larger package. And always do research online, making sure you get the best price for the service you need.
