Choosing a domain name.
This can be a difficult process. Idealy the domain name should be someting easy to remember and short but still be identifable as your company.
For example Battersea Dogs Home their domain name is www.battersea.org.uk , other examples British Broadcasting Corporation is www.bbc.co.uk, The Natural History Museum is www.nhm.ac.uk, finally B&Q is www.diy.com.
The extension i.e. .com - .co.uk - .uk - .me - .london etc. depends on the company. .org would be an organisation. .eu would be a European company. Each comes at a price .co.uk cost much less than .com and .london would cost 4 times as much

This is an important consideration. SEO helps to make your site more visible on the internet. Being nearer the top of a search increases the number of visitors to your web site. After all, it's not a lot of good being on page 40 of a search. Not every website can be at the top but by choosing the right criteria you have more chance of being found. There are also other ways promoting your website.
GG Knight Web Design can assist with the SEO
The upkeep of your site is important. This can take two forms:-
- Items like contact details, latest meeting times, new services, sale now on, etc. need to be updated regularly. I can take care of these updates or I can make the design so that you can update some items.
- Keeping the CMS (Content Managment System) and plugins up-to-date and secure. At present WordPress has one or two major updates per year (these do not automatically update as the minor bugfix updates do) and we try these out in-house before updating the live website, having done backups before and after this process. Also having experienced wordpress plugins breaking websites, these are tested in-house before updating the live site and another backup done. Backups tend to be done on a monthly basis.
