One thing that I hear a lot from new business owners is that they want to get a Web site, but it's not the highest item on their list of priorities.
That's certainly understandable. There are a ton of things to spend your money on when starting a new business, with supplies, services, and maybe salaries. A Web site, after all, might simply be a marketing tool for your business at the beginning.
But there is one thing you should do right away, even if you're not quite ready to pull the trigger on a full-blown Web presence. And it's relatively inexpensive.
You need to buy your domain name. In the Web world, a "domain name" is the URL address that someone must find in order to visit your site. This is different than the "hosting account," and you don't need to buy hosting in order to get a domain name.Domain name prices vary -- wildly. Most names, however, shouldn't cost you more than $20 per year. Hosting can cost as much as hundreds of dollars per month depending on your usage, which is the big cost you'd want to avoid while your site is still lower on your to-do list.
