Planning to launch an online business. Of course, a website is a must then. This article explains the quickest ways using which you can quickly start a website and concentrate on the business.

Usually power of a nice informative website has always been under estimated and those who take it seriously… their web pages are usually top ranked pages on Google. This article also talks about that too.

Most important thing for starting a small business website is to get a domain name that suits your business. Make sure you consider Business name or Brand name gets incorporated in your domain name. For e.g. One of our client Prudence Software Solutions, has registered two domains and, just to make sure that in both cases user lands up on their business website. You can also register domain such as, efood is the community portal for foodies, run by Prudence Software, as the domain speaks more about the website.

Now if you are not a developer or does not have a team of developer or do not want to spend any money on developing a website. Then what shall you do?

Below are few suggestions that may save few bucks but may not give expected results as usually website builder tools allow you to create r develop websites in confined boundaries.

Paid plans have no Ads hence for a Business Website, its recommended that you choose paid plans which haves no ads. It also have CMS using which your website looks and content can be changed.
