Business web design

Getting started with a new website

A lot of clients come to us with a great idea for a new business but are not exactly sure on what they'll need to get their website up and running. At Vortex web design we appreciate you may need a helping hand getting things going so don't be afraid to ask if you don't know.
We have outlined below some of the initial things you are going to need & what they are, which we will happily organise on your behalf if you would like us to.
Some of our business clients
Buying a domain name - what is one of those? !

Getting your www. name for your business

Your domain name is what people will type in to find your website online - you can buy domain names online quickly & easily for usually under £10 - Your domain name needs to be renewed every year or two depending on what suffix you have (.com,.co.uk etc). We can buy and set it up for you so you dont need to worry - just tell us your business name & we can check availability.
Website hosting for my business

Keeping your website live online

Web hosting is an amount of space you rent online within which your website files reside - whenever someone types in www.yourwebsite... they will be redirected to this hosted area to view your site - There are several different types & packages of hosting available but we can get you set up for as little as £7 per month including email accounts for your business too.
Emails, Branding & Compatibility

Looking professional will help you grow

Once we have got a domain & set up your hosting we'll create emails for your business so you can send and reply from you@yourbusinessname as opposed to using Gmail, BT etc - this is a lot more professional. We can also help with branding your company to help customer confidence in your products & services. We'll also ensure your site works in all browsers & portable devices.
