Thinking about a Website? 5 Things You Need to Get Started

Thinking about a Website? 5 Things You Need to Get Started

There are 5 essential components required to get your new website up and running:

1. DOMAIN NAME

A domain name, or website address, is how visitors access your website files.

Web hosting servers that store your website files use IP addresses, which are numerical labels assigned to each device connected to a computer network e.g. 192.168.1.1.

It would be impossible to remember strings of numbers for every website you want to visit. So domain names were developed and used to identify hosting servers on the Internet rather than using IP addresses.

Selecting the correct domain name is just as important as when you first selected your business name. Not only does your domain name need to be reflective of your business and products, but it must be a name that is friendly to search engines and your potential web customers.

How We Help

All our websites include FREE new domain name registration for 1 year

When you approach the domain expiry date, an automatic reminder for renewal will be sent to your email.

2. WEB HOSTING

To make websites accessible anywhere in the world, you'll need to buy storage space on a web server to store your website files.

Think of web hosting as the physical location of your website on the Internet, an online storage center that houses all the information — images, video, and other content — that makes up your website.

Web hosting servers have a permanent connection to the Internet, and are loaded with the software and technology that makes your website accessible to the public simply by typing your domain name into a web browser.

How We Help

All our websites include FREE web hosting with email for 1 year

Our web hosting features include:

  • Singapore-based shared servers that offer you the best in terms of reliability, security, support, and performance
  • Lightning-quick servers built specifically for small business websites
  • Professional email addresses that match your domain name

When you approach the end of your hosting period, an automatic reminder for renewal will be sent to your email.

3. SSL CERTIFICATE

SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is the standard technology for keeping an internet connection secure and safeguarding any sensitive data that is being sent between two systems, preventing hackers from reading and modifying any information transferred, including potential personal details.

SSL certificates are installed on web servers to allow secure, encrypted connections from web servers to browsers. The encrypted connection ensures that all data passed between a web server and a web browser remains private.

A successfully installed SSL certificate is indicated by the green padlock in the browser bar, and the HTTPS protocol over a secured port.

Google uses HTTPS as a ranking signal, and marks all HTTP websites as “not secure”. Link

Every Hypermagix Studios website is SSL-ready by default

This ensures that when visitors browse your website, or send an enquiry through your online contact form, they can be sure that their data will remain safe, private and confidential.

4. CONTENT MANAGEMENT SYSTEM (CMS)

A CMS is a platform for creating, modifying and managing content on a website from a web-based interface.

A CMS helps make updating and maintaining a website easier, as you can log in anytime and from anywhere to update text and image content.

How We Help

Hypermagix Studios CMS is custom built specifically to fit your website’s structure, with a strong emphasis on ease of use

We charge an additional $99.00 (one time cost) to build CMS funtionality into your website.

Our CMS allows you to easily control your website using a system that is matched for YOUR business, YOUR workflow and YOUR needs. It's lightweight, secure and highly extensible to provide extra features should you need them down the road.

Above all, our CMS is laser-focused on doing one thing really, really well: managing content.

It is not a website builder that allows you to completely change the layout of your pages, move elements around arbitrarily, add plugins and widgets or manipulate the colours, fonts and font sizes of text.

5. GREAT DESIGN

Having a mediocre website that's cluttered, slow to load, poorly designed, contains outdated information or just plain doesn't work due to outdated technology speaks volumes towards your credibility as a business.

A professionally design website enhances the credibility of your business and showcases your business information in the most efficient way to help your prospective customers make faster decisions about engaging you for your services.
