Adding Domain Names To HostGator

Adding Domain Names in your Host Gator Account.

For those at the beginning stages of establishing a website for the first time, this article and the accompanying video show you the simple process of adding domain names to the hosting platform.  A domain name is the English language name of your website, which is associated with its actual address, or URL.  It is the set of words which  directs other internet users to the website that belongs to you.   The URL and the domain name you assign to it are the foundation and platform of your website, for example, www.whateveryoursiteis.com.

Before you can actually put content up on your new URL, you need to establish its existence somewhere.  That is the function of a website host.  The two most common website hosts are at present, HostGator and GoDaddy.  You can actually buy domain names from either source, and/or you can actually purchase hosting services from either Adding Domain Names to Hostgatorsource.  GoDaddy is more renowned as a convenient source of domain names, while HostGator is more renowned as a website host.  So, you could get your domain name from either source, but our purpose here is to  illustrate exactly how to add on your new domain name using HostGator’s page designed for that purpose.

Now that you know how to add domain names in HostGator, in a separate post we will take the next step, installing WordPress and building the site.

Consulting Services for Content Marketing

Consulting Services for Content Marketing, SEO, Blogging Support, Social Media, Etc.

In September 2013 I became the other half of what was initially Kristen’s brainchild business, which she had  appropriately named “Strategy Content Marketing”,  a business specializing in consulting services for content marketing and SEO.  She had already been developing the idea and the basic website  for a couple of years.

I had worked the previous summer on my last laborious contracted land surveying job, working away from home  in another state.  The personal company kept there was far less than endearing and the work was anything but really fun.  It was time to make a change for the better.

After spending a little time back home where I really like to be, I decided to devote my full time supporting and working with the only person I really want to be around all day long, my wife, Kristen, who already has been well versed in this specialty for some time now. While I gain the comfort and fun of working 24/7 with my favorite person, I also gain the benefits of learning and improving a new technical specialty for myself.

I teamed up with Kristen on this, and we charged ahead to be 100% ready for launch by the end of the year.  We are on schedule!   In October we rented an office so that we could devote all of our attention to this, and attacked this project with a level of effort effort like neither of us had ever before put forth.  By the end of the year 2013 we had our free video  training series complete and had accumulated a significant amount of content on our content marketing blog.  Then it was time to begin building a client base.

The objective behind Strategy Content marketing is to provide technical support and consultation services to clients seeking to make more effective use of their internet presence. Whether a client is just starting out by creating a website or blog from nothing, or already has an online presence which might be working at less than optimum efficiency, our objective is to help our customers to increase their business revenues by learning to take full advantage of the often mysterious and often seemingly disconnected intricacies which characterize internet marketing.

Our focus is on helping the client gain visibility and ultimately increased revenues through improved and increased use of internet resources. This work might include any level of support in areas such as website creation, website format and contentconsulting services for content marketing optimization, blogging and related support, SEO ranking assistance, video marketing and related SEO ranking, and any number of related subjects.

We operate daily, just about seven days per week, out of office facilities located in the Ozark Small Business Incubator (OzSBI), near the courthouse square in West Plains, MO.  In the sidebar to the right, you can put yourself on a list which gives you access to our video training series..  Email us via our Contact Page.  If you would like to contact us by phone, please put yourself on the list for our video training series, and we will respond  ASAP.

Thank you for considering us in your search for effective SEO and content marketing consultation services!
