Website How To Guides

Webmentor How to Guides and articles are written in plain english for non-technical small business folk who want to get a website or manage a small business website more effectively.

  • Domain Names

    I originally wrote the How to Guides on Domain Names series in response to the many upset business owners who found out too late that they neither owned nor controlled their domain name. Don't buy a domain name until you've read enough here to understand how to do it properly.

  • Web Hosting

    We all need the services of a good web host. This series of How to Guide articles focuses on how to choose a web host in Ireland and learn more about the features they offer. What is shared webhosting? What is uptime and how does it affect reliability of service?

  • Search Engine Optimisation

    Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) is the art of getting your web pages to rank highly with Search Engines. And it all starts with the keywords that people type in to search engines to find what they're looking for. Is your website optimised for popular keyword searches?

  • Legals

    Did you know that Irish websites are legally obliged to carry a Privacy Statement? And that you must disclose the use and purpose of Cookies on your website? Does your online shop comply with the statutory rights of consumers online? Find out how internet law affects your web site.

  • Website FAQ

    Over the years I've been asked many questions both by my clients and by people who just can't find the answer elsewhere. I've gathered up the most commonly asked questions and added a little dash of my own wisdom, advice and humour.
