Having your own website can be a little overwhelming at first. Our goal is to make this process as painless as possible. Below, we enumerate the primary steps in getting you online with our web services.
Once you know the type of website you need according to your business, you’ll need a domain name. A domain name is the address that allows others to find you on the internet. i.e.: www.mydomain.com
Domain names are paid yearly and usually cost about $10.
The most popular domain registrar (and our favorite as well) is GoDaddy.com. It is inexpensive and easy to register and manage.
Did you know that PinkStudios can do this for you?
After you have decided and registered your domain name, you’ll need to find a hosting service. A hosting service is what allows your website to be available on the Internet. In simple, is where your web files will be stored and then pushed to your visitor’s web browser. PinkStudios offers hosting services, or you can also choose any of our approved carts/hosting companies.
The fun part begins now! Once you’ve got Steps 1 & 2 covered, the design process begins.
At this point, you’ll decide whether you wish to have a custom website built or choose between one of our premade templates. There are pros and cons between these two options.
Custom designs are made specially for you. You’ll be able to provide your input throughout the whole design process, making this design exactly what you were looking for.
When you choose a pre-made template, you’re purchasing a web template that was previously built and it is sold as is.
Custom website tend to be priced higher than pre-made templates, however you are guaranteed a unique design.
Pre-made templates are priced considerably less than custom templates. Our pre-made templates are sold multiple times which allows us to maintain a low price on them. However, this means that someone else in the Internet could have the same web template as you will. Our guarantee to you is that we never compromise quality in our pre-made designs.
Whether you decided on a custom
or pre-made design for your website, now comes up the data entry aspect of it. All the text, content or products (in case it’s a shop) need to be input in the website. You can decide to do this on your own or have PinkStudios help you with it. Contact Us for more information.
Ready, Set, Go! At this point, your website is ready to go. The most important factor to a successful website is promote, promote, promote. Don’ forget to add your web address into every promotional item you give out: business cards, flyers, emails, etc.
