Domains. Well over the last 15 years I’ve registered over 1000+
There are a few things I’ve learnt.
Host in Australia. Yes the over seas ones are cheap. If anything goes wrong it’s bad. Over seas hosts are hard to deal with, hard to contact and don’t know Australian business registrations.
Keep your domain password safe. Keep your hosting details safe
If your web designer does not provide this information, demand it. Your domain belongs to you.
My host of choices are
Expeed is hosted and support locally in Adelaide. Love it. Great support.
Moving your site is hard work but worth it, in the end.
Domains are not just for business, you can register one for your family. Each family member can have their own email address. Complete control
Do not use GoDaddy. Worst service, if you email me I’ll let you know
I’ve spend the last 4 months cleaning up a companies email boxes. I’m amazed, when I think I’ve gotten off all the emailing lists, more come.
Time is wasted when you get 500 emails, four are from clients, the rest is junk. If you don’t read it, it’s not helping then unsubscribe. Your clients are more important.
The unsubscribe is hard to find at the bottom of emails.
If you do want to subscribe setup a second email address for advertising junk and other email.
Be conscious of where you put your email address. On what site and what email address to use
Do you have changing staff?
Why not have an “alias” of firstname.lastname@example.org,
It means that your suppliers don;t have to keep changing the e-mail address every time a staff person leaves. Wasted time with suppliers having to make contact when the e-mails bounce when they need to send an invoice.
