Web stores are doing very well. Nowadays, virtual stores are more numerous than traditional brick-and-mortar shops – a strong trend that seems to be continuing. Starting a web store in the current economic climate is therefore a smart decision that we can only applaud.
Starting a web store begins with the choice of a suitable and appealing name. Even more than with a brick-and-mortar shop, your name must be catchy, unique, clear, and preferably as meaningful as possible (especially if you want to score high in Google’s search results). Do not ever forget that meaningful names are easier to remember, often achieve a better ranking on Google, are easier to spread via word of mouth and achieve a higher click-through rate. Feel free to read our six handy tips to choose a good (domain) name.
You should also carefully consider your future according to your business plan : what do you expect from tomorrow? If, later on, you intend to sell other products, it is vital that you choose a name that can also cover these products. Do not forget that constantly changing your name is definitely not a good idea. If people have a name, it is because this is how we can remember them. Over time, you will build a strong customer base, which you should not confuse by regularly changing the name of your virtual shop. The Internet may be a digital highway, but it is crucial that users can find the right exit to your web store.
Lastly, you should also always check if this domain name has already been taken. And it is equally important to check if a similar domain name already exists. As mentioned earlier, no one wants to confuse Internet users.Check the availability of your desired domain name and the shopping domain names offered by Combell.

The importance of good web hosting services should not be underestimated. It is indeed via the hosting provider’s servers that your website is placed on the digital highway. High quality hosting is, so to speak, like the foundations upon which your web store is built.
It is as if the Internet were a digital highway, where your web store has a specific address. Surfers want to be able to quickly access your web store. High quality hosting actually allows to create the exit that connects that highway to your virtual store. No one likes a bumpy exit, where you must also queue up before you can reach the web store. You also want your exit to be well protected against criminals and hackers.
Search engines like Google help surfers on this highway find the right exit. In doing so, Google also takes into account your web store’s speed. A faster web store will obviously rank higher in search results, since Google (just like your visitors) finds that speed is important. Do you want people to be able to find you more clearly and faster via Google’s directions? In that case, it is very important to have a good web hosting solution.
