Why should my small business have a website?
Even for small businesses, the value of having a well-designed, professional-looking website should not be underestimated. Having a small business website is increasingly being recognised as a legitimate form of exposure, and can be useful in highlighting your business as one which keeps up with the pace.
Any type of small business can benefit from having their own website, whether you run a Bakery, Plumbing Supply store, Hair Salon, Pet Store, Used Furniture store, the list goes on. A website can be a great marketing tool particularly when used in conjunction with Yellow Pages or newspaper advertisements.
What is a 'Domain Name' and why do I need it?
A domain name is the web address that people type into a browser to visit your website. In Australia, the licensing of domain names is heavily (and effectively) regulated. Registering a domain name for your business is recommended even if you don't intend on immediately building a website. For more information, please visit auDA.
What is 'Web Hosting' and why do I need it?
Web Hosting refers to the service whereby a web host provides space on a computer that is connected to the internet. The space is where your website 'lives'. When someone types "www.yourbusiness.com.au" into their web browser, that address points them to the host's computer. Salient Web Design acquires web hosting space from a 3rd party web hosting provider.
