Have you ever visited a website and realized that doing so likely compromised your computer or personal information? It’s an immediate feeling of dread as you think about what could happen next. There’s nothing more terrifying than knowing you just downloaded a virus or some malicious malware from visiting a shady website. This threat is so real that most of us have security plug-ins that pop up when you visit a website that is insecure or prevents a page from opening entirely if it is suspect.
One of the first things you need to do when creating a new website is decide on a domain name. It might sound incredibly simple at first – just insert your business name after www and before .com – but as you delve deeper into the process, you will find there are a lot of factors to consider.
