Plan Your Online Business Right From The Start.

Step One: Choose a Domain Name
The first thing you need to do is to purchase domain name. Your domain name should
reflect your business name if possible. You can visit any domain registrar on the internet
and for a small fee register your domain name for the year. Remember that this informa-
tion is renewed annually, so be sure to keep track of when your renewal comes due.

Step Two: Choose a Web Host
Your files and website content are stored with the web host. Be sure that you go with a
reputable company that does not have a history of having a lot of downtime. When
choosing your hosting it is important to consider the kind of disk storage you will need as
well as how much bandwidth you are allowed to use per month. The disk space and
bandwidth may be unlimited upon payment of a certain price.

                            static content or a dynamic content. Dynamic content is usually cre-
                            ated for databases which require a lot of space and the content is
                            changing frequently.

                            On the other hand the static content is for small content that do not
                            change often. Dynamic page may be the best for office supplies as
                            the products change due to the dynamic change in both the micro
                            and macro environments.

site should ensure that your shopping cart is automatically able to integrate with
the carrier. Besides that, you should choose payment options that are convenient
