To make a good domain name is a very important part of your or your organization.Because a domain name with the initial idea about the organization.Suppose your organization name “Walton” But you don’t choose your domain name Walton took another name, Such as mybusiness.com. As results, you lose a lot of customers. Sometimes the customer searches your business name for purchase any product but search engine shows the exact match domain name for the specific product. for example, if your domain name is the bracelet.com.bd and customer search in google for a bracelet; search engine showing your domain name because of Having your keyword in the domain still acts as a relevancy signal.

Where do you buy the domain?
There is a saying ”Don’t put all your eggs in one basket” So don’t take the domain and hosting from one company. take the domain and hosting from the different company. In my opinion, you should buy your domain from a very loyal company. In case, the provider takes your domain; How much of your loss will be difficult to express in words.Well, in my opinion, is a Trusted Domain Company GoDaddy. Domains generally ranging from $5 to $10 Dollar. Prices are vary depending on the company.Domain for one year and are taken to renew at the end of the year.but I recommend you buy a domain for few years . its relevancy signal for your rank in search engine.
Before taking the domain, you have to know about something about your domain provider.
- Domain provider gives you full control
- They give you EPP Code or Secret code. It’s necessary for transfer domain.
- At the end of the year, they take additional renewal charges. If takes additional charges avoid the company.
- What more is available with your domain.
What would be better for e-commerce hosting?
Hosting means your website’s data / image / video will be stored in the virtual storage.For example, there are different types of hosting
- Shared Hosting
- VPS Hosting
- Cloud Hosting
- Dedicated Hosting
Shared Hosting: I never support for shared hosting; arthouse shared hosting price is low from another hosting.Why is not suitable for Shared Hosting?
- Performance is slow.
- When come more visitor server goes down.
- CPU usage limit; when to Live a little more visitor the site was temporarily unavailable.
Search to find a good hosting so don’t search cheap hosting.If the site will down for 1 minute you ‘ll lose more visitor.
Cloud Hosting: My first and last choice is Cloud Hosting for e-commerce. In Cloud hosting your site is hosted different server in a different location. As results if one server goes down another server automatically open for serve. and server speed is good. Automatically increase your limits when additional traffic will increase.That sudden spikes in traffic to your site, and lots of visitors at the same time for any reason, even if the load balancing of our cloud infrastructure and due to remain at ease. your site never goes offline. Cloud hosting company never provide small packages.
VPS: VPS means virtual private server. When A computer divided by many partitions that’s called VPS for each partition.I hope you understand.However, it is down. And difficult to manage.It can be used for e-commerce.
Dedicated Hosting: When a computer is used as a server it is called fully dedicated server. To this dedicated server we say dedicated hosting. Dedicated Hosting is suitable for eCommerce hosting, but problem is can not be gurrented for uptime.
