There is a very common mistake I encounter with domain names, which could be dangerous for your business if not resolved. I’d like to discuss why this is, and what you can do.
For as long as I have been working in this industry, I have come across angry and sad tales of business owners who had a terrible experience web designer. I’ve heard the stories many different ways; but essentially it ended up that the business owner didn’t get what they wanted and felt like they were getting ripped off.
It’s no wonder why some may be extra cautious when choosing to hire a professional, and why some may opt to do it themselves.
Just to forewarn: This article is kind of a rant/stream of consciousness piece I really wanted to get out of my system. Though, I hope if you take the time to read this (or at least skim read) you might find something that helps. 🙂
Recently there has been a lot of talk about SSL, security certificates, and how these affect your Google ranking. But if everything appears to be going fine, then why would a website need HTTPS?
If you’re new to running a business (online or offline) I strongly advice getting at least these things in order before you start a website.
Why is this? A website is a long investment of time (and sometimes money), and I believe it’s better to be prepared than have everything come to a halt.
So if you want to ensure your website is a worthwhile investment of time and/or money, then read on.
When I say, great website design I bet you’re probably thinking of how aesthetically pleasing it is.
Well, yes of course! But looks are only one aspect of a really great website.
