So you want to set up your own website, let me help you do it. You may want to set up a website for personal reasons like a wedding, a trip overseas or for life in general. Most businesses today, of course, have a website, providing general information, contacts, products and services, both for information and marketing.
Once you know the purpose of your website, how do you get started? First of all you will need a domain name. A domain name is something that people will use to address/visit your website. The name must be unique. The domain might look like “my-company.com”. “.com” is the extension used for businesses, “.edu” is for educational organizations and “.org” is for usually for non-profit organizations.
To localize a domain address, you might want to use something like “my-company.com.kh”. The “.kh” specifically refers to an entity registered in Cambodia. To check if a domain is available to buy or not, go to this website and search: http://checkdomain.com.
If you pursue a domain with the “.kh” domain, you will need to fill out the server setup detail, sign the dispute agreement and bring information along with your business registration information to the KH domain authority near the post office. Find out more about this here: http://bit.ly/mK2z4O
Once you have figured out the domain name, you need to choose which hosting provider to house your website and email system. There are a few factors to consider when deciding a hosting company. First of all, track record of the company. Secondly price and support. Here are a few for your consideration: Lunapages.Com, Godaddy.com and Sideground.com. People usually purchase a domain and hosting package at once. You will need to contact the hosting company’s support first to get the server detail if you plan to register a KH domain name.
Finally the look and the function of the website. The quickest and easiest way is to install a Content Management System (CMS) on your website like WordPress which has lots of templates available free to get the best look and functionality for a new startup. A CMS will make it possible for you to create a new page, edit and upload a picture or media onto your website like using Word with a genetic defined page.
Don’t forget to install Google Analytics to provide insight to your new website visitors. Link your website to others and frequently update the content so your Google search ranking will improve.
