In the beginning, getting online and showcasing your business to the world can be a daunting task. There are many things to consider when created your new website – luckily, with over 10 years of experience in Cork Web Design Services for Small Business & Startups I can help you take these first steps and get your business online in no time at all.

Below I will outline a few small steps you need to consider before getting started with your new project. With my web design services I can take your idea from start to finish without the need to outsource commitments to external suppliers.

It is important for me to make your experience as easy as possible while off-loading major responsibilities to myself going forward, ensuring that your website always stays up to date, protected and relevant.

5 essential Cork Web Design Services you need to consider when starting a new project.

  • Domain
  • Hosting
  • Emails
  • Platform
  • Aftercare


Before you start you will need to consider your website name and it’s domain. A domain is your websites address on the internet and is vital before starting any new web design project.

It’s always good to start this phase with a emphasis on communicating to potential customers what your business is about through at a glance information. It’s also important to take note of the search engine optimisation implications of your new domain name – so for example, if you are a Plumber and your name is Mark Hegarty then you could consider a domain name such as

This conveys your profession and name in the address providing people with important information while also providing search engine benefits for people looking for ‘Plumbers’.

Website Hosting

You will also need hosting for your new website. This is essentially where your website lives on the internet, providing resources needed for all your components and pages within your platform. Choosing hosting can be difficult as it can be hard to understand which packages are best for your needs.

I work with external companies to provide hosting services for all my clients, taking the complication out of the process and giving you peace of mind that your website is in good hands.


Once you have your domain and hosting setup it’s time to consider your email addresses. Sure, it’s fine and easy having but if you want to instill confidence in potential customers then I would highly recommend going for a domain level email such as

This will provide your business with that extra level of authenticity and give customers to confidence to contact you with their issues.


Websites come in many shapes and sizes – there are a wealth of options available when starting out. However, I specialise in WordPress which is by in large the most popular platform to build websites on. Providing users with easy to access information and a intuitive navigation and editing experience. Of course, if you wish to deligate management of your website I have the ability to take this on for you.


When your project is finished you will be in a position to manage your website yourself to edit and upload new content – however, there are components to this that require external input from me – the developer to make sure your website is the best version of itself it can be going forward. Namely; updates to WordPress and her plugins and making sure your domain and hosting infastructure is up to date. Of course there is a larger conversation needed here to outline commitments but as an example, please see below some of the items I can manage for you post launch:

  • Domain management and renewal
  • Hosting management and renewal
    • Automatic website backups
    • Speed and security optimisations
    • Website maintenance and support from me
    • Support for technical queries
  • Email management
  • Search Engine Optimisation support through on-going updates and project tracking
