Startups – What they have to offer and how BigRock helps power them

Buying a great T-shirt online or even movie tickets – the Internet is influencing a lot of our purchasing behavior these days. Most of us look for reviews, offers etc online, before we buy a product.

Now is the generation of E-entrepreneurs – Starting business online is not only easy but even cost effective and offers loads of benefits. Take for example, the cost to start a Brick & Mortar store v/s starting a website; the headaches involved in getting licenses, approvals is just scary to say the least. Moreover there is the eternal problem of finding the right location. This is by far, one of the greatest values of the internet. You are not limited by location; the world is your playground on the internet. You can target your city, state, country or even the world audience if you’re up for it. The values are endless. So let’s start with all the things you will need to setup your website.

Getting online could be tricky but BigRock is your catalyst in getting there. We offer products and tools that allow you to set your web shop or just a presence on the internet. Here is a list of a few important services that you need to power your website and how BigRock helps you with the same.

1] Domain Registration: Your domain name is a way for people to find your brand online. Because of the dependency on the internet, people now expect your business to be online. The domain name of your choice may not always be available so you can look for different alternatives. We provide over 63 TLDs for you to choose from. You can also use our Domain Name Registration tool to find alternatives to your domain name, if it is unavailable. Some of the most visited websites in India are TLDs like .COM .ORG, .NET, .BIZ, .IN, .CO.IN etc. Brand protection is another good reason why you may also want to get multiple TLDs for your domain name. Use domain forwarding to direct all your users from the multiple domain names to the primary domain name where your site is hosted.

2] Web Design: The design reflects the kind of brand you are. Hence it is very important to give your website the right look and feel. This might not be the easiest of tasks. To overcome this, you can use our Do it yourself Website Builder. This tool is as easy as using Microsoft PowerPoint, all it takes is for you to Select a Design, Add the content and then publish it. Here’s the demo, give it a shot and see how easy the whole process really is. For those of you who are not comfortable in using the tool, we have another amazing option to help you out.  We are talking about getting a designer through our DesignXchange program to build your website. DesignXchange is an initiative to help you connect with the best website designers across India and get your website design work completed. Find designers in your city and as per your budget and start working with them.

3] Web Hosting: Another important stage is to find space to host your website. There are various types of hosting and it becomes important to find out which one is the best suited for your website. BigRock provides a list of hosting services ranging from Shared Hosting to VPS Hosting and the packages are divided further down as per standard user requirements.

Our Shared hosting servers are not only hosted in the US but now also in India. We wanted our customers in India to take advantage of the power of Geo Hosting .We provide both; Windows and Linux based hosting, so that you have more options to choose from. The resources within our shared hosting servers are good enough to power small and medium sized websites effectively.

When a website grows in popularity the load created on it by the traffic is huge. Shared Hosting might just not be good enough then. At this point we always suggest big websites to opt in for VPS hosting. It has all the muscle you need for facing heavy traffic.

4] SSL Certificates: The Ecommerce industry in India is still in its nascent stages and has not been widely accepted. A user will not trust your website, if it does not have some sort of security measures to protect their data. BigRock provides SSL certificates that provide a safe gateway for data transfer between your user and your server. Every SSL package also comes with a free Thawte Trusted Security Seal which  is a globally recognized trust mark, assuring your customers that their data is safe with you. This creates a trust factor between your users and your brand, thus making them comfortable in buying stuff over your website.

5] Email: As the saying goes, “It’s all in the name” your brand is what your customers will come to know and love. But it takes effort to build that. A mark of any successful startup is the attention to detail. Branded email (email@yourbrandname.com) is one such very important thing. Often overlooked, but super important nonetheless, this is one of the best and cheapest ways to get a big company feel and win the trust of your customers. We’ve got options that can take care of all your communication needs. From standard Email Hosting to Enterprise email which is a secure collaborative platform to help you and your employees communicate and collaborate effectively. You can use it as a planner, set meetings, save data on the cloud server, and easily access it through multiple platforms. All in all it helps you complete your task more quickly and efficiently.

These core products power some of the biggest websites on the internet today. We are constantly adding newer products to help you build and host your perfect website.

Here is an example of a great startup 🙂

  1. BigRock’s new addition: Auto-Updating Nameservers | BigRock Blog - January 23, 2014

    […] Initially, new customers of BigRock who had a domain name and a hosting package in the same account, needed to manually change the nameservers of their domain name. This was done so that the domain names are pointed to the right webhosting services. Unfortunately, this bought about inconvenience because of manual intervention and possible mistakes. Well this now, is a thing of the past, thanks to the new feature of auto-updating name servers which went live recently, making it easier for you to get started. […]
