For many people getting an online presence for their business can be a daunting task. At Shine Box we will guide you through the whole process, from the intial design process, to domain name registration and hosting etc, while explaining in simple terms what is needed.
One of the first things to do when developing your web site is to register your domain name e.g. www.shinebox.ie. A Domain Name uniquely identifies your company or organization on the Internet. At Shine Box we will find you the best deal and register the name for you.
Your domain name is a very valuable marketing tool and should be chosen with great care. We will advise you on the choice of your domain name. Shine Box registers the following domains for our clients:
.ie; .com; .net; .org; .co.uk .
By registering your Domain Name you can be assured that no other company can use that name for their e-mail or web site address.
The choice of Web Hosting facilities is a most important decision for those considering an Internet presence for their business. Your site has to be speedily accessible at all times. In the event of a problem, the hosting company must be able to fix it quickly, with a minimum of downtime for its customers.
Shine Box will arrange the hosting of our clients websites with Web Hosting companies who can provide technical excellence, speedy and efficient service at a reasonable cost. We will also set up email accounts for you and your staff members.
