Building a website for your new business sounds intimidating, but it doesn’t have to be complicated. To make the process easy for you, we created a step-by-step guide on how to build a WordPress website using SiteGround's WordPress Starter tool.
The WordPress Starter tool has dozens of pre-made layouts (called “themes”) depending on the type of business you want to create. If you're going to start a restaurant, a freelance design business, or anything in between, SiteGround is likely to have some themes that fit you.
Every business is different, and you don’t have to worry about being locked into a template that you can’t customize. Within our guide, we show you how to use Elementor, a WordPress tool that helps you customize your template with simple drag-and-drop features.

If you follow our ten tips listed below, you’ll be able to find a fantastic name for your new business! For more detail, check out our How to Name Your Business blog post, which expands on each of the tips.
When you’re naming a new business, one of the most important things you can do is to pick a business name that you love. Having a great name that you feel proud of will give you confidence in what you are selling. Since there are so many registered domain names, one great way to find a name is by adding a modifier to your desired brand name (like Tesla did with TeslaMotors.com). Of course, if you find an exact match domain name that you love, that works just as well!
We believe that alternative domain extensions will become more and more popular over time. Some of the most popular alternative domain extensions include .net, .org, and country code extensions like .co.uk and .in. You can choose your desired domain extension next to the keyword input on the NameBounce search box!
Brandable names (like Apple) are flexible enough to fit multiple products, while hybrid names (like NameBounce) allude to what your business does while still showing creativity. By choosing one of these names, you’re less likely to run into trademark issues, and you’ll show more creativity to your customers.
When you’re starting a new business, it’s essential to communicate what your brand is about and differentiate yourself in the marketplace. By having a name that showcases your brand values, it will be much easier to stand out!
According to Google, 53% of mobile users abandon websites that take over three seconds to load. If you choose a long name that takes a long time to say and type in, you can assume that the results will be similar!
Imagine if I had to spell out N-A-M-E-B-O-U-N-C-E every time I told someone my business name on the phone. That would become super exhausting over time! Make sure that you pick a name that is easy to spell and is clear when spoken over the phone.
If you try and keep 50 different name ideas in your head, you’ll use up your creative energy trying to remember the names!Using NameBounce, we make it easy to save a brainstorming list. Just click the star next to a name, and we’ll add it to the favorites list on the right side of the page.
It’s rarely a good idea to make decisions in isolation. Make sure that you get feedback from other people on your name finalists. While it’s important to make your own decision, they might be able to catch something that you missed or give you a perspective you haven’t thought of before.
In the coming months, we are launching a platform that will help you get crowdsourced name feedback from your target market. Stay tuned!
When you’re starting a new business, the last thing you want is to get into an expensive trademark dispute. Make sure that you run a thorough trademark search before you finalize any name. Check out the full blog post for more detail!
You don’t want to rush your naming process, but it’s important to remember that there are over 350 million registered domain names. Anyone else can register your preferred domain name at any time. If you find a domain name that you think has potential, it’s good practice to register it as soon as you can.
Business name generators can help you find new business names that you might not discover with a manual brainstorming process. They work by using algorithms to create and rank a list of business name ideas. Many business name generators check for domain name availability with each search.
It's helpful to have your business name match your domain name, but it's not a necessity. You can use a modifier like Tesla did with TeslaMotors.com, or use an alternative domain extension like .net or .co.uk.
The most popular domain extension is .com, and there are still many solid .com domains available. However, alternative domain extensions are starting to become more popular. Some great alternative domain extensions include .net, .org, and country code extensions like .co.uk and .in.
The best way to protect your business name is to file a trademark. There are many benefits from filing a trademark, including protection against someone infringing on your business name. You can also register multiple domain names with different extensions, as that will make it harder for someone to use your business name.
