What is a Website

( A quick guide )

A website is a collection of web pages that share a single web address. Websites can be created and maintained by an individual, group, business or organization to fulfil a variety of functions. All these websites make up the World Wide Web. 

Parts of a Website

  •  Website Design
    Plan and create the web pages to display your business to the world
  •  On the street
    Now you need an address; a domain name like www.mywebsite.com.au
  •  Real Estate
    Then you need a place to park it, a web server, where everyone can access your pages, services and products
  •  Security
    A unique encryption certificate (SSL/TLS) is installed to keep things safer
  •  Open the Doors
    On the web server you place the web pages you want the world to see.

Getting Focussed

Think about what you want to accomplish with your website before you dive into buying one. Look at your competitors' websites to see what they are doing. Get an idea of what may be best for you and whether what you are thinking of will be affordable.

Perhaps the most common misconception about business websites is that they must offer products for purchase, accept credit cards and process transactions. Nothing could be farther from reality. While ecommerce websites are increasingly popular, the vast majority of business websites are informational rather than purchase-oriented.

An ecommerce website can cost tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars and is not the first step to take if you are new to having a web presence. Something simple, clean and informational would make a good foundation to building an extended customer base through the internet; costs would not be a big drain on your annual budget.

“ You can claim a tax deduction for most expenses from carrying on your business, as long as they are directly related to earning your assessable income. ”


Do-it-yourself

There are two ways to build a website. Do-it-yourself or through a web designer. As a business owner it’s doubtful you will have the time to spend learning the technicalities of building your own. The process has many important facets to take into consideration and would require long hours to be even partially successful. It’s important you do not lose focus on operating your business so a professional web designer is the obvious choice.

If you do feel that you want to have a go at do-it-yourself then have a look at some of the possibilities HERE. It can be done if you have the passion but there are many skills and technicalities to learn. 

Best advice is to use professionals to help you. A ‘home-made’ website can potentially put customers off. It might end up worse than this website HERE
