A website that specialize in selling gift items

Enquiry: hi,

I am planning to set up a website that specialize in selling gift items like lets say something [].when buying domain names how much memory space must i opt for.will the web designer tell me what size memory space i need for my site

Hi Collin, the chaps at the Web design directoy asked me to respond to your question;

 The domain name as such has, and will not have any influence on the memory you will require for your website. You will just reserve and effectively “rent” the domain (I digress, but please ensure that YOU are the registrant and do NOT allow your web developer to register the domain in their name – this is critical) however, your web developer will be able to advise how big they think the website will become and how much space you will need on the server.

I hope that helps, but please refer back if not

all the best


Funding to start a web business

We received the following question from Siraj who has agreed for us to publish our answer to help other readers. “I would like to know how to get funding to start a web business or a web company that would be interested to build a website as an investment?”

This question was from a chap named Siraj and Siraj; I’m sorry that we are not going to be too much help here as we are not really qualified to give you this kind of advice. Having said that, as for any business I would suggest you consider carefully how your company is going to make a profit, what your offer to your customers is going to be. What will make your web design business stand out from any other web design business as this will be called your “unique selling proposition” and used a deal in marketing web companies as with any other busines.

From this point you would need to create a business plan supported by a budget and cash flow forcast and then I’m afraid its off to the banks and similar institutions to seek funds – good luck and thanks for the question
