Common beginner mistakes and how to avoid them

There are many things involved in setting up a website and an email address. With a few tips and hints for the start-up phase, you can ensure that you create the right foundation for your launch. And avoid putting yourself on the sidelines as much as possible. Let's start with the tips you can use to get the most out of your website and your emails!

Domain name - an important pillar

The domain name is one of the most important pillars for creating a website and everything that goes with it. With the right domain name, you can ensure that you can use it for years to come and make the domain name a permanent pillar in your business. Unprofessional domain names that may seem nice at first, but later hurt your brand, can put quite a damper, not only on your brand, but also on your domain name and website results in search results.

So think carefully about choosing a domain name, but don't wait too long before checking if it's still available. A domain name can easily be snapped up and registered by another party. Especially if it is still free. So as soon as you have found a domain name, you should register it immediately if it is still available. Use our domain name configurator to check immediately whether the name is still available. If it shows a status other than free, it has already been registered by another party. It may be offered for sale by that other party, but this is often an investment to buy it.

With the right domain name, you can move forward for many years.

The right hosting partner

The right hosting partner for your online project is also of great value, with our packages we enable you to launch a website and mail for any budget. And you have extensive specifications that give you room to grow. For example, with our standard Total package you already have a total of 25 GB of storage space, and you can use content management systems such as WordPress.

And you have 3 different types of databases at your disposal. With support for MySQL 5, MySQL 8 and MariaDB. MS SQL databases are also possible with an add-on. For your next project in ASP.NET and .NET. Take a look at our packages to find the right one for your project and if you still have questions, you can easily ask them in our online chat.

Website design

The design of your website is also an important pillar and often depends on how you set it up. Content management systems such as WordPress or Joomla have many different themes that you can easily install. They are also often free to use. Always look at the information page of the theme itself to check this.

Always check if everything is possible within your theme, always make a list in advance of what you want to show on the website. For example, a slider on the homepage, a contact form or other functions that you would like to see. Many things can also be added later with a plug-in, but always try to limit your plug-in list. Too many plug-ins can lead to delays.

Try to keep the quality of your content at a high level

The content of your website has a big impact on your overall performance. The content of a website can take many forms, but mainly consists of all the text, images and videos that are displayed on your website. So with all these components, you need to make sure they are of high quality. This will ensure that your visitors have a positive experience, which can have a positive impact on the overall performance of your website. Think of higher scores in search engines like Google and more links to your website.

Tips for your email address

A large proportion of business communication will be via email, as this can be used to capture agreements and is a low barrier to contacting customers and suppliers. Email addresses can be created indefinitely in our packages that support mail, the only limit is the disk space of your overall package. So take a look at the specifications of your package to determine the storage space, with 5GB of data most customers can store years of email traffic. If the trash can is emptied once a year.

In addition, a number of email addresses that have become standard over the years are expected, such as the generic info@ address that can be created. You can also opt for less formal variants, such as hello@ or hi@. But even this can come across as unprofessional in some cases. So consider your company and the tone you want to set and adjust your e-mail addresses accordingly.
