Why You Should Purchase a Domain Name?

Domains are not expensive at all. In fact, probably the equivalent of one coffee a month!

Using a domain name for yourself or your business makes it easier for people to search for you. Having your website on or places you higher in search results when people search for your company or your name. Search engines give more credibility to domain names than free hosted subdomains. In addition, it is also common for people to go to if they are trying to find you on the Web.

Having your own domain name helps your site appear more professional. There is a perception that websites hosted on their own domains are more professional than websites hosted on free subdomains. It shows your visitors that your take your business seriously and have built a brand around your company name.

Domain names are generally shorter making them easier for visitors to remember than free subdomains. This is especially helpful for word of mouth advertising; if people are trying to recommend your website to their friends. It is so much easier for them (and others) to remember then

Register your domain from the start. This is especially crucial for new businesses. Registering your domain name early helps with your branding from the start. You can start using it on business cards and for your email addresses. It helps create an identity that will last. Domain names are a very inexpensive but crucial part of your website.

April Updates - Google Map, Redirects, Image Gallery

The Google Map Component is back!
You may not have even noticed, but due to some changes with Google’s API our Google Map Component was unavailable for a short time. If you already had this live on your site, the component was working, however you would not have been able to add any maps.  Everything has since been updated and a new Basic Google Map Component is now available.


New WWW 301 Redirect
Create a 301 redirect for your www subdomain, then when a user types in have it redirect to or vice versa. This can help with SEO as it tells the server you permanently want to redirect. Using a redirect like this will tell search engines you have one website.

You can create your WWW 301 Redirect by going to Manage Website > Site-wide SEO > Redirect.
