What must I do to get my website live?
The first step is to register your domain and sign the hosting agreement (which you will find in your Starter Pack). Thereafter you need to complete the website content submission, either via an online or offline application.
Who owns the domain name?
The person who purchases the starter pack and registers the domain will own the domain. Mi WEB will be the administrator of the domain.
Can I move my existing website to the Mi WEB platform?
No. You can, however, purchase a starter pack instore, complete the process and pay the annual fee. We will then move the domain name from your current host.
You can however transfer an existing domain and email account to Mi WEB, by providing us with your current registered domain name and active email accounts. You then have to notify your current service provider that your domain and email addresses are being transferred, in order for us to submit a transfer request to the registrar.
What is the difference between a website and a Facebook page?
A website is a collection of media presented via the internet on computers and mobile devices. Our designers use creative flair to create a website that is visually appealing and presents your information in the best possible light. It allows the user to give great much greater detail and content and is, therefore, a critical tool in making your business or entity highly visible.
Being without a website, is like not being listed in the old style phone book. You won’t be found!
Facebook is a social media platform that allows the user to post comments and share photos and links, in order to market a business. Regular updates are required, however, and it is difficult to ensure that followers see your posts. Facebook is a good tool to target specific audiences via a paid advertising campaign.
We represent the future of marketing. Print media and malls have had their day, if only on the grounds of cost. Direct selling, online, is here to stay and can only grow. We are the cheapest, most effective means of reaching out and explaining, to an unlimited market, who you are exactly, what you have to offer and on what terms.
Will people find me online?
Yes. If they search for you they will find you. Note that your new website (domain) can take a few weeks to be listed.
We also offer ‘SEARCH ENGINE OPTIMISATION’ as an extra service, whereby we apply a number of strategies to enhance your ranking and search criteria, an example being a key word analysis to improve your search results. This costs R250 per year to administer.
Can I add as much information as I want to my website?

Can I replace: ‘Home’ – ‘Products or Services’ – ‘Contact’ – ‘Map location’ or ‘Social media links for any page extras or add ons as listed?
