Our easy steps will show you exactly how to do everything you need
to have your web site on the internet in no time
Where Do I Begin?
In order for you to effectively launch your online business, you
will need to have the objectives of the site clearly defined. This
will depend on the specifics of your business. Is this site going
to exist solely to provide information? Generate contracts? Or are
you planning on selling your product online? Whatever your answers,
you need to set goals for your online business, and be able to monitor
its progress later on. The goals you set for your online business
will determine its success or failure. Try to think of what your
visitors will look for from your company, and base your goals on
that. Also, it's a good idea to visit your competitor's web sites
and decide what it is that those sites are missing and what you
can improve upon to make yours appear better. After all, if you
want to stay ahead, you have to think ahead. Once you have set your
goals you can start the planning.
Choosing the Right Hosting Company
The first step is finding a hosting company that can support your
online needs today and be able to grow with you smoothly and reliably
as your business needs grow and change. You want a hosting company
that understands the dynamic nature of small/medium businesses.
Your hosting provider has to provide highly technical solutions
for the non-technical world. If you are like most small business
operators, you have neither the time, nor the resources to understand
all the intricacies that go into providing web hosting. Even if
you did, the time and resources can be better spent somewhere else.
The bottom line is that you need something that works "out-of-the-box"
with the least amount of hassle as possible.
One unavoidable fact is that establishing an online presence has
become one of the fundamental aspects of doing business in today's
environment. The challenge is choosing a hosting company that will
cut through the confusion and provide you with sensible hosting
solutions that fits your needs and budget.

Choosing A Plan
The second step is to choose a plan that fits your needs. Do you
want just a simple presence on the web, or would you like to sell
products? Once you have made the decision of which Web hosting plan
suits your needs, you can then look into the specifics for your hosting
Your Web hosting plan should give you:
- generous disk space to store your web site and files allowing
you to grow.
- Plenty of traffic allowance or data transfer for individuals to
view your site freely.
- Your own domain name so your customers can find you easily.
- E-mail accounts through your domain name.
- Web site management tools enabling you to master your domain.
All of Zero Web Hosting's award-winning Web hosting plans include
extensive disk space, generous traffic allowances and a rock-solid
e-mail system all under your own domain name and controlled by you
through our specially designed online control center.
You will have the capabilities you need to make the most out of
your web site without breaking your marketing budget.
Select a Domain Name for your Web site.
There is no need to wait until your site is built. Reserve your
unique domain name today or it may be gone tomorrow. Just pick a yourname.com,
yourname.net, or yourname.org and we will register it for you if it
Your domain name is an easy to remember web address that people
type into the address bar of their browser to be brought to your
web site. If you don't have a domain name already, you will want
to register it as soon as you find it is available. For the best
results, your domain name should be transferred onto your Web host's
servers. If you already own a domain name, you will want to initiate
the domain name transfer after placing your order.
Zero Web Hosting makes it easy for you to handle your domain name
registration. You can check to see if the Domain
Name you want is available. Once you find it, you can go directly
to our online order form and register your domain name at the same
time you order your Web hosting plan.
If you already have an existing domain name, you just need to transfer
it over to our servers. This service is free. In most cases, we
can initiate the domain name transfers onto our servers and you
can just confirm the transfer with your registrar. More
Domain Names are extremely important. The selection of a Domain
Name is very important in setting yourself apart from the rest of
the dot com's. Selecting a good Domain Name will enable you to successfully
promote your brand online. Your domain name should be simple for
visitors to recall and distinguishable from other sites. It is a
good idea to choose a name that directly relates to the type of
business you own. For example, if you own a furniture store, named
Ron's Furniture, it is logical to name your site, www.ronsfurniture.com
or .net. This makes it easy for potential visitors to remember and
visit your site.
It is also a good idea to register many similar domain names and
set them as domain aliases to your web site. For example, someone
might type in www.ronsfurnitureshop.com, or www.ronsfurniturestore.com,
and their browser will automatically point them to your Web site
If you are not yet ready to build a Web presence, but have an idea
in mind for a Web site, you should still register the Domain Name
of your choice. This way you are guaranteed that name and nobody
else can select it.

Launching Your Site - Announce Your Presence to the world!!
One of the major keys to online success is to announce your web
presence successfully. The very first step you should take is to submit
your site to the search engines. Search engines have been proven as
an effective advertising tool. Keep in mind that this is just the
first step and there are many other ways and strategies to attract
people to your web site.
While submitting your name is important, you also have to make
sure you are ranked highly within those search engines. Everyone
wants his or her site to be listed highly. Unfortunately, many web
sites appear poorly in search engine rankings or may not be listed
at all because they fail to consider how search engines work. Meta
tags are a great way to promote your web site through many search
engines. Meta tags are optional lines of HTML code in your document
that can be used to describe your page. These tags provide descriptive
information about your site to search engines, but in a form that
isn't displayed by the browser. Meta tags are the keywords that
potential customers will punch into the search engines. Zero Web
Hosting offers a variety of plans to suite your budget and your
goals and help you succeed. Our plans start from as low as $199.
Monitor Your Web Site
You will be able to monitor the progress of your business though
a web statistics program. Zero Web Hosting offers customers a software
package to track visitors to different pages on their site. You will
be able to tell what pages customers were drawn to on your site, how
many visitors each page received, and even where your visitors came
from before visiting your site. You will even be able to tell what
search engine customers prefer. This data is very useful when designing
future marketing strategies and updating your web site to better serve
your visitors. You must constantly remain up to date with what is
both working, and not working for your web site, and then tailor your
online business needs accordingly. If you want to stay at the top,
stay on top of the game.
