Web design suggesstions

I'm interested in having a basic ecomerce web site created and am looking into having it done by Go Daddy, Register, Google (or a similar website which provides these services). Do any of you know which one of these types of companys has the best/worst service or have any other opinions about going this route? I am new to this and want to make sure I'm not making a mistake. Thank you.

Go with GoDaddy.com, that's where I got my SSL Certificate and Website Protection scanner. They offer a full suite of everything to do with web site development. You can do everything from domain registration to web hosting to setting up an ecommerce backend in one location, which is better than trying to integrate different services from different companies.

7 Website design suggestions

In reply to: The answer is....

Tip 1 - Use a reference (but don't copy it!)
If you see an interesting web design, color scheme or layout, try to use it as a starting point for your own web design.

Tip 2 - Be unique
Try to create a unique design. Do not overdone your web design by adding numerous animated GIFs, fade-ins, etc.

Tip 3 - Content is king
Create content that purely relates to your website, the more pages with useful content you have the better. Make the body text on your index page focused and avoid the need for the user to scroll down on any page.

Tip 4 - Graphical elements
Any Graphics that you use on the website should always support the content and never dominate the content.

Tip 5 - Be HTML-compliant
Follow the proper HTML standards and check whether your website is HTML-compliant, to make sure that your website is displayed correctly in all browses.

Tip 6 - File size
Make sure that your site is quick to load in any browser. There are obviously a number of factors that can affect how quickly a website loads, but try to make sure that large file sizes isn't one of them.

Tip 7 - Colorsheme
Use a colorscheme of matching colors. Avoid excessive use of shouting colors such as green, yellow, or red.

something like Shopify as well. A developer I know has signed up a couple clients with them and was very happy with what they had to offer. I find that companies that specialize in something do generally better than companies that try to do everything Happy

Agree completely. If I was building a new store which was a basic ecommerce site, I'd start with Shopify. I think it does the best job at creating a good user experience, while giving a business enough control over the look/feel to make it their own.

We would have used them if they supported recurring billing.
