Here are the 5 most important things you will need to do after you are done with your domain registration:

1. Secure your business name: If your new domain is not being used for specific business purposes, you can skip this step. But if your business name will be used for business purposes, you need to secure it at companies houses. There are tools that can help you search for existing company names. You can use beta.companieshouse.gov.uk.

2. Set up an email address – Using an email address is an important part of running a website and online business. Not only the email is the most common way of a business communication, it is an effective way to inform your customers of the new products and services you offer. Setting up a professional email address is one of the first things you should do.

3. Secure your social media accounts – We advise you to secure your social media accounts as soon as possible. You may only plan to use Facebook or Twitter, but later you may want to use other platforms such as Instagram or Pinterest, so why not you expand your social media influence. It is good to ensure your social media accounts have the same username.

4. Start with email marketing – A well-thought customer mailing list is an important asset to any type of website. The people on your mailing list are probably familiar with your site, brand, the products or services you offer, and they are ready to buy. If you are launching a new product, if you are preparing a big promotion, if you are offering a discount, the email list should be the first place you turn to. The best part is that it is super easy to do it yourself and you don’t need any marketing knowledge or design experience. MailChimp is a great place to start your email marketing campaign. All you have to do is create a list, ensure the list is compliant, create templates & designs, send the first campaign, avoid spam filters, and check the MailChimp reports.

5. Add SSL to your domain name: If you look up to your web browser you will see the little green padlock to the left of the web address. That is SSL. Also, you will notice that the address starts with https and not http. For those who don’t know – SSL stands for Secure Socket Layer and it is a standard method of encrypting information sent between two or more search browsers and servers. In other words, if you notice the SSL sign, it means any data or information sent between you and the website is secured. Thi is super important when running an ecommerce website and dealing with information such as credit or debit cards.
