Chilli Websites is happy to introduce a new template style that includes a FULL SCREEN background with slideshow capability.

   Did you know that Chilli Websites can customise any of our templates to suit your needs or revamp your existing site for a fresh new feel.

   Adding a photo gallery to your website can be a great way to show off your business - find out how to give your gallery a professional look.

  Domain Names - Do you need a or a .com

→ Local search - The most important difference is that search engines like Google are smart enough to provide results based on your location, so if your business is primarily Australian, then a address will help ensure your site appears when Australian customers search for your products or services. This isn’t always guaranteed, but it does add weight to local search rankings.

Global search - if you want your business to trade globally on the web then a .com address may be your best bet.

→ Registering a address requires a registered business name that’s similar or linked to the domain you want to register. Some people see this as a validation of your business existing and being registered, so that can make a difference to consumer confidence. A domain can only be registered for a 2 year period.

→ Registering a .com - you do not need an ABN and a .com can be registered for a 1 year period.

→ Do you need both - this is entirely up to you and your business needs.  If you feel that you would like to extend the protection of your brand this is may be of benefit to you.

 Registering common spelling errors.  If your primary domain name is commonly spelt incorrectly it may be advisable for you to also register these errors as another domain name so that you ensure that your business' website attracts the traffic and not a competitors!

→ Letting your domain lapse. If you let your domain name expire your website and any email associated with that domain name will also be unavailable on the web until the domain name is re-instated.

Therefore, it is a great idea to be aware of when your domain is up for renewal (remember this will be two years from when it was first registered) and make sure that the email address that you receive your notice at is regularly checked.  

Chilli websites keeps tabs on all the domain names that we register on behalf of your business and will either renew it for you or send you an invoice for the renewal when the time comes around.

the background as a slideshow of multiple images.

Adding a photo gallery to your website.

Photo GalleryPhoto galleries can be a great way to show off your business, however if not created correctly they can be clunky and hard for potential clients to see what you are wanting to show them.  

The best way to create a gallery is to insert a table into the page (much like you would do in a word document) and then decide how many columns and rows your will need depending on how many images you have to display.  It is also imperative that you have a standard size for your images (say 230 pixels x 150 pixels) for your thumbnails and then a larger image for clients to click through to see larger (say 600 pixels  x 400 pixels).  

To link each photo to their larger image simply click on the "images" icon and then on the tab "link" to select the appropriate image from your images manager (please remember to have the image open into a "New Window" so that clients are not taken off your site).  

Also, it is a good idea to put some spacing around the image to do this you can right click inside a table or cell and add padding - you may play around with this a little to get the right amount of padding for your images to distribute evenly across your page but remember what you do to one cell you will need to do to the others to keep it all aligned evenly. Once you get the hang of this it can be quite a quick process and your site will have a clean, professional look!
