Take the first step in getting your business online and register your domain name with 1- grid. The advantages of having a functional website are countless and the point of departure is finding a suitable domain name.  Potential customers spend most of their time behind computer screens, smartphones and tablets. And the longer your business is not online, the more business and potential revenue you’re missing.

Choosing a domain name can be tricky and here are some factors to keep in mind when selecting your domain name:

  • Keep the domain name short if possible
  • Make sure the name is available on social media platforms
  • Use keywords in your domain name because it tells search engines what the website is about
  • Be creative
  • Consider using a geo-specific domain for businesses that operate in set locations

Once you find the perfect domain name for your business, the real fun can begin. For your website to be live on the internet, you need web hosting. What is web hosting?

Secure your website and customer data with SSL certificatesWhy do you need to secure your website? Without the lock on your domain name that indicates a secure website, you’re vulnerable to security breaches and hacking.

Having an SSL certificate will protect your customer information and keep your website data safe as well as increase conversions. Browse our web security packages to find the one that suits your needs.
