Getting started online typically involves three elements: Domain Name, Email Address, and a Web Presence. The most common ways of setting these up are
- Setting up your own site, by registering with Web.com, GoDaddy, Network Solutions, or another full service company
- Using Facebook, Google, WordPress.com, or another social media platform.
- Working with a service such as Weebly,1&1 Web Hosting, 10x Hosting, or others.
Consider each of these options in terms of how you want your business to grow. If you have any questions, or need more information, please do let me know. I will be happy to help.
A domain name is the “mycompany.com” name that is used for a web site and email address. My recommendation is that you purchase this separately from everything else, and don’t bundle. This gives you flexibility if you want to change or move your online business.
