It stands to reason most types of businesses will benefit from having a website. Indeed it is widely supported a web presence is key to business growth and survival.

  SITE IMPACT MATTERS

The simplest of websites can do the job, but presenting a professional image is key. Today sole traders and individuals working from home based businesses can compete with vast corporate enterprises to show off products and services in cyberspace. Visual impact of the site will determine if visitors click away or stay to explore. Therefore a professional image is key.
Unlike paper brochures, business cards and printed matter a web presence can always be up-to-date. It can be changed easily and quickly, sometimes at no cost whatsoever.

What if I register a domain a domain name and then change my mind?
Don’t be in a rush to register a domain name.
It needs careful consideration: unambiguous, short, meaningful and easy to remember. Preferably with a real connection to what you do

You don´t need a domain name in order to test the usefulness of a web presence. Shroton Ukulele Club is a site primarily for the members. They needed a site to allow members to keep up to date with gigs coming up and to access the 100 or so music files.

They do not have a domain name. But they can be found quite easily by typing the club name into Google. They can be found if you search for ukulele clubs in Dorset. They are not a business but the site was created and hosted free on the Turbolink to see if it could compliment their twitter and facebook pages.

LESS IS OFTEN MORE
Professional websites are generally distinguishable from sites created using web template software. First impressions count. If you want your business to be taken seriously you you need to consider this.
Simple sites, clean layouts, good graphics. All you need.

THERE IS NO NEED TO RUSH
In time you might settle on a domain name or maybe two different ones. You can register an unlimited number of domain names.
They could all point to the same location-on the web.

REGISTER THE DOMAIN YOURSELF
Always register a domain name yourself . It is really easy to do.
Avoid companies that want to register your Domain for you.
You need to retain control over it in case you need to re-site or move it to another hosting supplier.
