I already have a website, does this sale matter to me?
It is great that you already have a website. Consider your future needs such as website features, branding requirements, website security and the credibility conveyed by your site to visitors. Here are some factors to evaluate, with an eye on the future.
Do you use a custom email address with your website domain name? If not, buy Email Hosting. Free email such as GMail or from your ISP for your work or business makes you lose out on the branding advantages that a custom email provides. Whether your website is for a side gig, or a recognized business, you absolutely need professional email.
Do you intend to sell products or services online using an e-commerce website? If you don’t already use an e-commerce website, you can consider upgrading your website to an online store. Keep in mind that selling online requires you to collect sensitive customer information including personal data, payment information and more. Ensure that your online store is secure and uses a trusted platform. Shopify and WooCommerce on WordPress are two of the most popular options to launch an e-commerce website. Need help choosing between the two? Here is a detailed analysis that compares Shopify vs. WooCommerce.
Is your website HTTPS enabled and does it have a valid SSL Certificate installed? An SSL Certificate encrypts all data that is sent between your web server and website visitors. When correctly installed, it ensures that browsers such as Chrome, Edge, Safari, or Firefox display a secure padlock icon next to your website address. Regardless of whether your site collects sensitive data or not, a ‘not secure’ message near the address bar of the browser does not inspire confidence and trust with your website visitors. Every website needs an SSL Certificate these days. Buy SSL Certificates.
Do you protect your business name on other domain extensions? This may not be a requirement for every business or entity out there, but if you are growing rapidly and would like to ensure that your brand is not misused online by impostors and cybersquatters. A proactive way to defend your brand online is to register your name on multiple domain extensions that are popularly known (.NET, .ORG, .CO), relevant to your geography (.CA, .US) and industry (.MARKETING, .INC, .PHOTOGRAPHY, etc.). Start Domain Search.
