Conclusion and summary

There is an enormous amount of information available on websites, how to build, best practices etc, so search around. The points I have covered are I think essential for the small business website owner. I hope this has helped you understand the basic options available to build your first business website and you are now in a slightly better position to make a choice between the options available

Don't

  • Don't rush in to a hosting plan just because its looks cheap
  • Don't rely on a hosting companies own website builder
  • Don't rely on a hosting companies own cms, shopping cart or payment system
  • Don't over estimate the amount of storage space you need
  • Don't go overboard with visual effects
  • Don't accept the first promotional offer to get your site to number one on Google

Do

  • Do check the resources included in your hosting plan
  • Do check for extra charges that will be applied as your site grows
  • Do use applications that are independent of your hosting company whenever possible
  • Do get FTP access to your web space
  • Do take some time to write good content
  • Do read up on how to promote your website yourself
