Website Components 

Establish Your Website Presence

Domain registration reserves your place on the internet, only for you to use.  You need a domain name as an address for your website or as the ending of a professional email. Domains require DNS management to connect your domain to your website and your email account. We can help you register your domain, add privacy protection, and connect your domain to your website or email accounts.

Hosting

Website hosting refers to the server that hosts your website’s files and database. You can think of it as your website’s home. We offer various hosting plans depending on how much storage you need, how many databases you need, how much traffic you get, etc. All of our hosting plans include web space, POP/IMAP email, unlimited email aliases and forwarding, a minimum of 2 MySQL Databases, DNS access, FTP access, email with spam filtering, nightly backups, and uptime monitoring.

Design

The website design pertains to the overall website structure, layout, copy, content, etc. When it comes to designing websites, we have website partners who we work with and can refer you to. By partnering with designers, we each get to do what we do best. Tech Lab gets to focus on the underlying infrastructure to the website, while our partners handle the design and marketing side.

Search Engine Optimization (SEO)

Search engine optimization (SEO) is all about increasing the quantity and quality of traffic to your website. When designing a new website, you want to make sure SEO is included so that prospects and customers can find your new website in the search results.

There are many factors that go into SEO. The following are just a few examples:

  • Page Factors: Target keyword(s),  content length, keyword density, recency of content, quality of content, image optimization with alt tags, page loading speed, outbound link quality and quantity, readability, URL length and path, user friendliness, mobile friendliness, title and meta tag optimization, etc.
  • Website Factors: Domain trust score, the website uptime, SSL certificates, mobile friendliness, loading speeds, site usability, number of pages, user interaction (bounce rate, amount of repeat traffic, time spent on website), etc.
  • Domain Factors: Domain history, age,  keyword placement within the domain name, the country TLD extension, registration length, etc.
  • Backlink Factors: Number of linking domains, number of linking pages, contextual links, linking domain relevancy, backlink age, social shares, user generated content links, structured data implementation, number of outbound links, etc.

Maintenance

Once you design and launch a new website, now it is time to maintain it. Website maintenance is essential for open-sourced software, like WordPress, that needs to be updated and secured. Updates help ensure that your website is leveraging the latest technology, continues to function as technology evolves, and remains secure as improvements are made. Tech Lab takes care of the technical hassles so that your website remains online, secure, and functioning as expected.

Security

Website security is essential to keep your website secure. Websites are a target for cyber attacks. Regardless of the type or scale of business, your website is under attack daily. Cybercriminals attempt to gain access, inject malicious code, or take control.

Imagine the worst-case scenario, your website is hacked. What do you do? Do you still have access to your website or has the hacker taken control? Do you have a backup to restore your website to its previous state? Or do you have someone who can clean your website and restore your access? While you are trying to find a solution and answer these questions, your website is down and you could be losing business.

Tech Lab can help you proactively keep your website secure and safe. If your website is already hacked and you need help, Tech Lab can help clean it, get it up and running, and implement safeguards to prevent a future attack.
