Managing Your Site
Registering your website name, hosting your site and a security certficate are the administrative side to creating your website.
Managing Your Site
Every website has a registered name, e.g. www.mywebsite.extn. There is a large range of extns - extensions - available.
Three common ones are .com .ie, and .eu.
The name has to be re-regsitered every year, or up to 10 years at a time.
The person or organisation who registers the site name is the owner of the site.
By default, we register new sites in our name. If you wish us to register the site in your name, please tell us at the outset as otherwise
there may be a charge for changing this.
Each website has to be stored on a hosting computer system to make it
available to the internet. We do not provide hosting, but we use
Blacknight, an Irish company based in Co. Cavan,
for all our hosting requirements.
By default, we put all new sites into our own hosting package with Blacknight. If you wish to have hosting in a package
under your own name with Blacknight, we can arrange this. Alternatively, contact Blacknight directly and they will be happy to work with you on this.
If you already have hosting organised, we can work with your hosting provider. Changing hosting after the website is established is straightforward, but we may charge for this.
It is recommended you have a security certificate - SSL - on your site. This helps to prevent your site from being hacked. Also, Google and
other marketing organisations look more favourably on SSL sites. In fact, if you intend to receive online payments, SSL is a requirement.
We automatically add a SSL to all our new sites.
The costs of Registration, Hosting and SSL are usually included in all the new sites we create. We also include Captcha (“I'm not a robot”)
spam protection on all forms as standard.
These are some of the websites we have created for clients ...
Search Engine Optimization - we work with you to identify keywords appropriate to your website and
to the audience you are aimning at. We submit all our websites to Google and can include Google Analytics at no extra cost if you so wish.

Video and Photography
At Limerick Wbesite Design, we do not offer a video or photography service. We can source photographs for you
or we can include your own photographs. We recommend putting videos on YouTube, and linking them into the website.
We accept online payments. Our terms are a minimum €50 deposit or 10% and balance on completion. Depending on the size of the project,
we may ask for one or more stage payments.
If you are considering your first website, keep it simple, use it to promote you brand name and business.
