How to start a business website?

There are many web designing services available online who can design your website from the scratch. Now it is time to find the best business hosting company. The company who designs your website can also offer hosting services too. But make sure to check their uptime is at least 99%. Since it is a business site, your site should stay live all day long. If you are planning to find a web host outside yourself, then prepare your requirements, like space, bandwidth, and database usage. Decide whether you are going to host your site on the Windows or Linux platform

Go for a Virtual Private server (VPS) or Dedicated hosting if you have a big website with high traffic. If you need to have your own server, you can use a dedicated hosting. VPS gives you an advantage to have root access but it is a shared server. Dedicated hosting has the full resources of the server dedicated to your website. It's not necessary to shift to these features unless you feel your website is slow due to high traffic. A VPS costs from $50 and Dedicated hosting costs from $100. These kinds of servers are really expensive. It's better to start off with a hosting and then you can later upgrade when you think it needs some more stuff.

Maintain and update your website regularly. If you need to provide live chat customer services online or ticketing support, you can install scripts to your server and customize the scripts to your needs. Scripts are available for free or you can get them by paying some money. The difference between a paid one and a free one is that you will get quick customer support from the seller. Mostly, the web designer can handle all kind of designing requirements. You don't need to have any knowledge in designing.
Get started now. Give your business and your customers a new look.
