The Architect’s WordPress Website Launch Guide

1. Buy a Domain (& Power it with Google Apps)

Go to Step 2 if you already own your domain (web address, for example: www.bestarchitect.com).

Otherwise, use Google Apps (5$ per user per month) to register & run your domain by clicking here.

Although there are many places to buy a domain, I recommend using Google Apps because it comes bundled with some awesome tools. Google Apps gives you:

  1. Access to hundreds of free to low-cost services that normally cost companies hundreds of dollars a month (project management apps, accounting apps, productivity apps).
  2. Up to 10 free email custom email accounts (me@bestarchitect.com) powered by Gmail.
  3. Peace of mind: your email will never go down.
  4. A domain powered by one of the biggest and most reliable names in the industry: Google. Let’s just say they will be around a while and won’t be going out of business anytime soon.
  5. Integration with your Android, iPhone, or Blackberry smartphone (sync contacs and email, etc.).

Google Apps offers all this and more – an exceptional value for the small architecture firm. I use Google Apps to run this domain, BusinessofArchitecture.com. Once again, here is the link to set up an account: Google Apps (Standard Addition).
