Your Small Business Website is a eBook by Mitchell Adams for Small Business owners who want to know the basics of getting a website started.

Readers are given a general overview of concepts to consider as they form their small business website including ways to plan out your ideas and formulate an approach to getting their website built. The reader will learn the importance of registering for services themselves and other steps to take to protect their business interests and identity.

While the book is not a technical guide (there is not an in depth discussion of code or specific applications), there are several concepts and terms the reader will find valuable when setting out to have a website built.

Tips & Resources

Before you purchase a domain name, contact Adams Web Co for advice on what to choose in a name as well as what domain name services you actually need vs what registrars try to sell you. Namecheap is a good provider to use.

Contact Adams Web Co before choosing a hosting company as your specific needs and the quality of hosting may not match up.

Some companies we work with are SiteGround, Microsoft Azure, and other hosting companies.

A good email provider is extremely important in order to keep your emails flowing and to stay off of blacklists.

If you have low email traffic, the plan that comes with most shared hosting should be acceptable. For critical email needs, look into plans from providers like Rackspace, Microsoft, and Google.
