Services by business type
From choosing a domain name to hosting your website, Core Media Design offers expert assistance with everything you need to get and keep your business online.
The first place to start when setting up a website is with a domain name: your www. Careful consideration must be applied when choosing a domain name; it is not common knowledge for example that particularly long names are not considered search engine friendly, and that addresses including a dash are not the best choice.
A domain name can be the name of your business, or it could be a word that describes what you offer. It is often a good idea to use a name that would be used as a search term to find your business; one that describes what your business does, and includes a geographical location too if appropriate. That way, your website stands a better chance from the outset of enjoying success in the search engines.
Sometimes it is a good idea to register more than one domain name, use one for your website and then ‘point’ the others to the site. Sometimes website owners will register an alternatively spelt version of their name if it is one that is commonly misspelled.
At Core Media Design we take time to help our clients choose the right domain name in order to maximise the success of the website. We will fully advise you on the best course of action when registering a domain name so that you are not alone to make the decision, which is a very important one and could make all the difference to the success of your website.

Web hosting is needed to put your website online.
There are two main types of web hosting: shared hosting and dedicated hosting.
Shared hosting involves sharing space on a web server with other websites. It is considered more economical than dedicated hosting as the cost of server maintenance is shared.
See our shared hosting packages.
This hosting involves leasing an entire server which is not shared with any other client. It offers a greater degree of flexibility and gives you more control over your choice of operating system and server hardware. Normally you will find that dedicated hosting offers a greater return on investment than shared hosting. For full details of our dedicated hosting service, please contact us.
Because not all websites are the same, and because visitor traffic varies, a range of different web hosting packages are on offer from Core Media Design to suit a variety of needs. The hosting package you select depends on a number of factors, including:
The size of your website: how many pages, images and videos it has; determines how much web space you need. This is usually anything from 100MB to 10GB.
Whenever a visitor hits your website, data will be transferred. For this transfer to take place, you need bandwidth, and the amount of bandwidth required depends on how much visitor traffic your website receives. For your convenience and so that you never have to worry about changes in visitor traffic, Core Media Design offers unlimited bandwidth in all of its web hosting packages.
If your website is driven by a database – for example, if it has a login area or an online shop – then this will affect the hosting package you need. Different packages allow different numbers of databases, from one to unlimited.
Some hosting packages offer different numbers of mailboxes, or e-mail accounts. Depending on how many e-mail addresses you need for your business you can choose from packages offering between two and unlimited mailboxes.
Much to consider when selecting a web hosting package; however with Core Media Design you are never alone because we’ll make sure you are provided with the ideal package for your needs.
