Below is a list of items we need to build your website
1. REGISTER YOUR DOMAIN NAME.
Send us the domain name you would like to register.
TIP: The shorter and more concise your URL (domain name) is, the better. A shorter URL (domain name) is easier to remember, fits easily on printed material, and is more likely to “stick” in someone’s head so it can be recalled.
2.DOMAIN NAME ALREADY REGISTERED
If you already have a domain name registered, please send us your domain registrar’s login details so we can update your nameservers and point your domain name to your new hosting account.
Alternatively you can also update these nameservers yourself by logging into your domain name account (eg. Crazy Domains) and go to ‘Update Nameservers’
Enter the nameservers highlighted in blue in the order shown below.
NAMESERVER 1: ns1.hosting-cloud.net
NAMESERVER 2: ns2.hosting-cloud.net
NAMESERVER 3: ns3.hosting-cloud.net
Send us your logo in .jpg, png, or gif file format. Logos with transparent backgrounds in .png files work best.
Send us a list of keywords for your business.
What you think potential customers/clients would enter in Google to find your business. It’s a good idea to ask friends and family what keywords they would use to find your type of business online.
Google will not find your website unless you have the right keywords on your website.
Send us content & images for each page clearly titled with page name.
HOMEPAGE: text and images for this page
SERVICES: text and images for this page.
You can also send any existing pamphlets, brochures or company portfolios.

12. GOOGLE MY BUSINESS LISTING
In order to set up your Google My Business Listing on Google Maps, we require you to send us your address. It cannot be a P.O. Box.
We will request Google send a postcard to your address. When you receive it in the letterbox, tear the letter on the perforated edges and inside you will find some numbers. Send us these numbers so we can verify your business on Google Maps.
Send a list of suburbs you service.
NO SHOP FRONT OR OFFICE?
Let us know if you do not have a shop front or office and your address will NOT be visible on Google. Instead Google will show a shaded service area.
If you service a large area, send us the furthest northern suburb, eastern suburb, southern suburb and western suburbs you are willing to travel.

13. Do I need an SSL Certificate?
