The following are a few of the most frequently asked questions about building a custom website and working with EliteDesignerWebsites.com:
What is a domain name?
Visitors to your website get to your website by typing in your domain name or what is commonly referred to as a “URL”. For example: http://www.EliteDesignerWebsites.com the phrase “elitedesignerwebsites” is our domain name (URL).
How should I choose my domain name?
Choosing your domain name is extremely important in order to establish your brand identity. There are two primary options; one is to use your company name and the other is to use an SEO-rich domain name. For example, if you’re an interior decorator in San Mateo, California, you may want a domain name such as SanMateonteriorDecorator.com. You may also use your company name. If you have not chosen a company name yet, then be sure to check if the domain is available first as it may be taken.
I’ve narrowed my search down to a few domain names. Now what?
Your next step is to ensure that the domain name is available. You can check availability by going to GoDaddy.
What if I already have a domain name?
Perfect! You still need hosting. EliteDesignerWebsites.com only utilizes hosting that offers a Cpanel. If you have a hosting plan with a Cpanel, we can still build your website. If you’re uncertain, feel free to send us an email and we’ll check for you.
What is hosting or web hosting?
A web hosting service is a type of Internet hosting service that allows individuals and organizations to make their website accessible via the World Wide Web. You can purchase a domain name and not host it anywhere. However, unless it’s hosted somewhere, no one will be able to see you on the Internet to find you.
How do I find a hosting provider?
You may purchase your own hosting plan at HostGator by clicking here. Note: All hosting companies will have you commit to a yearly contract to secure the lower price.
What if I don’t want to use or buy hosting through HostGator? Will you still be able to create a website for me?
Yes. However, only if your hosting plan offers Cpanel.
I now have a domain name as well as hosting. What is my next step?
