There are a few terms you should be aware of before startingyour website. Before a website can be launched you need to have the following;
1. Domain Name
This is your chosen website address (i.e.www.mysalon.co.uk). This can be purchased via various providers such asGoDaddy. 123-Reg. Generally speaking, to purchase a domain is relatively inexpensive averaging around £10-£30 yearly. assuming it is not a very common web address as those can be far moreexpensive. These domains can be purchased for a year, 2 years, 5 years and soon.
Once you have your domain you need to be able to have your website 'Online'. In order to do that, your website needs to be uploaded to a web host (where your website is stored) on a 'Server'. The server is what enables your website to go online and go live to the wider world and have it connected to the internet. Consider 'Hosting' as an open pay-and-display car park, depending on how long you paid for parking, is how long you will be able to have a spot (or in other words, have your website online). There are various offers with hosting providers and each have their pros and cons. Our recommendation is to go with a UK based provider such as 123-Reg or 1and1. Hosting a website for a small business can start from anywhere from £10+ per month. Again, there are various options as well as considerations to bare in mind.
Can you not take care of all of this?
This is by far the most important part. You must RETAIN OWNERSHIP OF YOUR WEBSITE. If when purchasing a domain/ hosting, yes, we could do that for you however that would mean we become the legally registered owners of your business website. We will have 100% access to YOUR website. For this reason we feel it is our responsibility to make this clear to you. We wouldrather guide you through the steps and have you retain 100% ownership of your website.
