What are Basic Requirements for a Website?

In short, the basic requirements for a website include a domain name, website hosting and an SSL certificate.

  • Domain Name

    Most people are familiar with a domain name. Basically, it is the name of the website that people type in the URL to visit your website. For example, our domain name is www.bayouwebdesignplus.com. Costs generally range between $15 – $20 per year. The shorter the domain name, the more it will cost. For example, www.bayouwebdesignplus.com is $15/year, but www.bayouweb.com is $1,700 for the initial purchase and then $15/year thereafter. Companies like GoDaddy and Network Solutions will put a higher value on domain names that are shorter and easy to remember.

  • Website Hosting

    Website Hosting is the server space that holds the website files. Every page of the website you are currently viewing are saved on a server in a hosting account set up by the owner. There are several levels of website hosting that can be purchased. If you have a small website with a few pages and a minimal amount of images and videos, “Economy Hosting” should do the job. That usually runs about $100-$120/year. There are several levels of hosting to choose from based on your specific needs.

  • SSL Certificate

    You can have a website without the SSL Certificate, but not having an SSL certificate can destroy your chances of ranking on the first or even the second page of Google. The SSL Certificate protects a website visitor’s personal information by encrypting anything typed in to any forms on the website. Since Google’s algorithms are meant to provide Google users with optimum search results that are safe and credible.

    Someone can usually tell if a website has an SSL Certificate or not by the presence or absence of a lock to the left of the domain name in the URL. Many times, visitors opening a website without an SSL Certificate will be served with a warning. The warning will tell the visitor that their information may not be safe if you continue on to view that website. For this reason, I consider an SSL Certificate a basic requirement for a website. This usually costs about $75-$100/year.

What About Search Engine Optimization (SEO)?

Many people ask us about SEO or Search Engine Optimization. SEO is all about getting your website to appear on the first page of Google. When someone googles a service or product, they usually don’t look past the first page of Google results. This is why SEO is so important.

Every website that we build is search engine optimized, social media optimized, mobile friendly, and is built with a framework that your company can grow with.

We strongly suggest that you be cautious with any web design companies that guarantee that your website will appear on the first page of Google within a few months. Some of these practices are known as “Black Hat SEO”. These tactics can get your business punished by Google, Bing, and other search engines.
