1-2-3 Steps to Launching an Internet Presence

1. Register a domain name

A domain name or website address is effectively your "Internet storefront", or name by which people remember your business. Popular website addresses for commercial enterprises are expressed as either www.yourname.com (International/US domain) or www.yourname.com.au (Australian domain).

Those who own a domain name can use it for two purposes:

To register a domain name, please contact the EPS Hosting office on 03 9813 5333 or email sales@epshosting.com.

2. Arrange hosting

Once you have registered a domain name, it is not able to be used for any purpose until hosting is arranged. A host, or server, is a computer which is connected to the Internet 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The host will provide a place to store your website content, and also enables you to send and receive email. But remember, you will still need an Internet Service Provider (ISP) so that you can get access to the Internet, i.e. surf the Internet and check your email.

Arranging hosting is very similar to connecting your mobile phone. There are a range of packages, prices, service providers and features for you to consider. Some service providers split up the hosting of "content for a website" and the ability to "use your domain for email".

EPS Hosting simplifies the selection process by providing two types of accounts to choose from. The hosting accounts we offer contain a range of different options which can be upgraded or downgraded according to your needs. Rather than basing the hosting fee on the number of visitors your website attracts, EPS Hosting's accounts guarantee you one low, fixed fee for the entire year, regardless of the number of visits your site receives. No matter what website, email or hosting arrangement you may currently have, our hosting service can be tailored to meet your needs.

3. Build a website

With your domain name and hosting arranged, you have met the two expenses that cannot be avoided when establishing an Internet presence. From this point onward, you can start building your website. If you have neither the time and technical skill nor the experience in graphic design to construct your own Web pages, EPS can help. EPS specialises in providing tailored Internet services to meet the needs of organisations across all industries.
