A domain name is the easy to read name of your website. For us it’s businesswebsitedesign.co.uk
When choosing a domain name it’s important to make it relatable to your business. Keeping short and pronounceable makes it easy to remember accurately.
SEO stands for search engine optimisation. It is a way of structuring your site and its content to ensure that you have the best chance of your website being returned in a good position when someone does a Google search for terms relevant to your business.
When building a site we will always implement best practices for SEO.
A responsive website is a website that adapts to the device it is being viewed on. For example, if you view a site on a desktop PC or laptop and then view the site on a mobile, you should have equally good experiences of that website but not the same experience. On the mobile, the website may have a slightly different design and content may have moved to make it easier to navigate and view utilizing the controls available on a mobile device.
SSL stands for Secure Socket Layer and is a security protocol to enable you to access a website securely. When you access a site which has SSL you will notice that the web address begins https:// rather than http:// (note the additional “s”). This means your interaction with that website is encrypted and information you enter can’t be stolen by hackers.
Google sees websites which use https:// as safe and the use of https may boost the ranking or your website over a non secure website.
