If this is your first online business the following are required to run your website
- Domain Name
- Hosting Account

- E-Mail Account
Some offers look cheap at first glance but may not include enough server space, no email accounts and no SQL Database required for any content management or e-commerce websites.
The other thing to bear in mind is the quality of their support should there be a server issue or a hacking attempt on your website. Having worked with so many hosting companies, we have listed some recommendations.
With millions of websites across the globe, it’s not always possible to find the actual domain name that you wanted.
Most business also purchase the domain name for .co.uk and .com just to avoid someone else using a similar name. Try to find a relevant, short domain name otherwise it may be too long to fit on your business cards.
