Your domain name is your internet address, the “www” and “dot com” that you see in everyone’s web address.
Be sure the name of your business is in the name if possible. You also have the choice of using .com, .net, .org, .gov, etc. as the trailing identifier.
The host server is a large computer with a directory that is assigned to you and only you. Your domain name is then “pointed” to this directory and that is how your website is broadcast on the internet.
Plan on purchasing an SSL certificate that encrypts your website from hackers and thieves.
Also, consider an e-commerce solution or blogging platform.
CTA stands for “call-to-action”, and it’s part of a webpage, advertisement, or piece of content that encourages the audience to do something.

Use both traditional & online media to promote your business.
It all depends on what you want you want. It can take as little as one day for a one page website with all the content available, or it can takes months if it is complex and the content is difficult to develop or delayed.
A website can cost anywhere from $500.00 to $10,000.00 to design and launch. Of course, it’s not all design costs you need to consider. There are hosting and domain costs, third party costs for custom functions, images and other licenses. We are happy to sort all this out and give you an in depth estimate on all the one-time and ongoing costs.
You surely can build your own website if you have the time and resources to do it. But you have a business to run, why not let a trained professional do it? You could certainly build your own house, but do you have the tools, the time, the knowledge, or experience to do it? Let’s talk about it.
The short answer is YES. We would have to look at your hosting platform, the quality of your content (images and text), and your branding. We would then discuss what you would like to change or replace. Most times a new designer builds a website using their own tools and elements available at the time, and we are no different. Sometimes a fresh start is the best option. We are happy to discuss this with you.
You own the website and all the licensed elements used to develop the website. SEED Internet reserves the rights to use any custom coding that is not related to your branded elements or content.
If the site is built in WordPress or some other CMS program, there is a better chance you will be able to make some minor edits to the content. Keep in mind if the site breaks down, you will have to pay someone to fix it or restore it if it crashes.
Because we insist that you own the domain and the hosting accounts, you will be responsible for the renewals. Most hosting companies are pretty good about notifying you well in advance of any accounts or credit cards expiring.
