Hipposerve Startup Business Tools
There is so much to think about when you are starting your new business. With incorporation, financing, and day to day operations, the last thing you need is to worry about all the complexities about getting online. Thankfully, Hipposerve have put together a range of startup business tools to take the pain out of this.
Our “Hippo Helper” team, is also always there too, to answer any of your questions and assist you in getting set up. Oh and did we also mention, you get a FREE HIPPO, with many of our hosting products.
Choose an Unforgettable Business Name
Always a tough one, this! So much hinges on creating that unforgettable brand. Hipposerve have created a unique Business Name Generator that puts together interesting and unique business names, based on a keyword that you enter!
We can even find a matching domain name for you at the same time. We have other startup business tools, to get you moving.
Getting a Great Domain Name
Choosing the perfect domain name can also be difficult. It needs to be easy to remember and quick to type in (even on a mobile phone). It also needs to be available if you already have your business name!
You can do a quick check on your domain name availability by completing the “Find and Awesome Domain” form at the top of all our web pages. Many of our domain names are just 99p for the first year, and free if you buy them with some web hosting.
Matching Emails for that Professional Touch
There is email and there’s email—not all are great for business. [email protected] may have served you well for years, but it doesn’t look great on a business card!
70% of users say they would trust a company with an email that matches its domain name, than those with a generic email address.
Our professional mailboxes are matched with your domain name and include all the features you would expect, as well as enhanced delivery AND a 30-Day email backup as standard!
Hosting Your Website
When you invest time and money into a website, you need to make sure that it is stored on a fast, secure and reliable server.
80% of your users will leave your website, and go to a competitor, if it takes longer than 3 seconds to load.
We have a range of different hosting options to suit different hosting needs, from simple single page websites, to large scale business applications.
All of our hosting plans are designed to grow with your business. We will help you upgrade your solutions, with minimal hassle and downtime, when your user base increases.
As always, or “Hippo Helper” team is on hand to discuss your requirements and choose the best hosting option for your needs.
Building Your Business Website
Your business website is your shopfront. Even if you don’t sell directly online, a great website can exchange your visibility and reputation.
When you are starting out, you need to get your website up and running quickly, however, we understand that you probably won’t have a huge budget to do this. Whilst professionally designed websites are fantastic, many small or startup businesses prefer to build it themselves—especially in the first instance.
We have developed Hippo Builder precisely for this purpose. Easy and fun to use, you will be able to get a professional website up and running in minutes, for a fraction of the cost of an agency build.
If you are looking for a WordPress site, we also have specialised hosting for this platform.
We can even give you help to find a trusted design agency for your web project, just get in touch with the Hippo Helper team.
Looking After Your Investment
Once you have your domain, email and website, it is important to look after your investment. Your website may have a taken a long time to produce, or cost a lot of money. Either way, you will need to ensure that it is looked after.
We provide a range of Hippo Care solutions, that include website backups, enhanced security suites, 24/7 monitoring, website backend updates and even blog post updates. All these form part of our startup business tools.
Support For Your Business
One of the greatest startup tools is excellent support. If something goes wrong with your website, it is always good to know that there is a team ready to help you. You don’t want to be trying to fix a broken website when you have a business to run.
Our Hippo Helper Team is always ready to answer your questions and help fix any technical issues you may have or offer advice on any of our services.
