Frequently Asked Questions
How long have you been doing this for?
Officially Thayer2Design is going on its 5th year, but that doesn’t mean I’ve only been creating websites for that long. In fact I’ve been creating websites for over 10 years. Many of them were created for my own personal use or just because I enjoyed the process. It wasn’t until recently that I turned that passion into a career and started building websites for other people.
What do I need to start building a website?
Domain Name: A domain name is what your clients, customers, visitors will type into the address bar to find you. (For example: www.Thayer2Design.com) A .com is the most commonly used domain name but it isn’t the only. Other domains can end in .net, .org, .edu, .gov, .tv, ect. It’s important to pick a domain name that people can easily remember and stands out.
Web Hosting: Your web hosting is similar to a physical store. Its a place where you will store everything (your website, files, pictures) and this is where your customers are directed to when they enter in your domain name. If you don’t already have a web hosting company, than we are happy to provide one for you and we are proud to often be lower in cost than our competition.
A Web Designer: It’s easy to choose a company like GoDaddy to quickly build a website or a company like Wix (I’m sure you’ve seen their commercials recently.) But often times these websites aren’t that great, they don’t work well with search engines, and in the end you get what you pay for. Instead you can go with a designer such as Thayer2Design who will build you exactly what you need at a price you can afford.
