KIS - Keep It Simple

There are many ways to add fancy bells and whistles to your website, but most of them are not going to do you any good. In fact they will slow down the time it takes to load your website and take up valuable space that you are paying for. Besides that, people with older computers will not even be able to see some of these fancy additions you are using.

For example Flash intro pages may be fancy and exciting to look at, but search engine robots and spiders do not read flash pages and you may actually be hurting your standings in the search engines by using Flash pages.

Other things like music that plays when you open up a web page can be distracting and downright annoying! Too much movement on the screen will also get on your nerves pretty quickly, so think before you start adding all those bells and whistles.

Our advice is Keep It Simple.

What's In A Name?

Why pay for your own domain name anyway? You can launch a website without your own name for free. Sure you can - but if you want to make it in today's business world, then you had better come up with your own domain name that will be easily identifiable with your business!

What's in a name? Just take a look at some of your more familiar businesses like McDonald's or Coke. Notice their domain names are very easy to remember. www.mcdonalds.com, www.coke.com.

Spend a few dollars and get your own domain name. Be careful though, some sites will charge you $20.00 to $35.00 a year to register your domain name; that's why you should always shop around. There are domain names available for only $7.99 a year. At www.webdesign4him.com domain name registration is included in our affordable website design package.

If you want to establish an identity on the Internet then you really should have a domain name that is easy to remember.
