Multi-Services - Use Some or All
Hosting is a Major and Direct influence on how Google ranks and scores your Website Presence and is THE most important server other than the Design of your Site.
Hamptons Web Design has been hosting East End Business Websites for 20 years, and has evolved its service to include all of the necessary and important features. Google requires that once someone opens your website from any search, that it is "USER-FRIENDLY". Slow sites, or pages, or even some images, are the direct result of slow servers. This one error can cost you your rank..
For any size business, servers that display your website need to be state-of-the-art, fast, and possess an abundance of technology for security as well as SEO purposes. Hamptons Web Design specializes in professional business hosting for local small businesses. Responsive sites, and open source sites are very complex programs that need to be integrated with our servers, for optimal performance, backups to multiple locations, and maintenance.
Hamptons Web Design's hosting system offers all of that and much more:

What is Google Advertising (AdWords)?
Google AdWords is Google’s online advertising product that can help you attract new customers to your website and grow your business. Hamptons Web Design will create the ads for your business and Google AdWords displays them to people searching for products or services like yours at the exact moment they’re looking for them.
AdWords can be a valuable marketing tool if you’re interested in any of the following:
Attract more customers to your website
AdWords displays your ads on top and next to Google’s search results, as well as on websites featuring related content to your products or services.
Gain more customers in a specific geographic area
If you want to build a customer base in a specific geographic area, AdWords can target your ads to potential customers in specific countries, states, cities or local areas. That means your ads will only appear to potential customers in the geographic area we specify.
Attract customers via mobile devices
Millions of people access the Internet from their mobile devices to research products and services and search for local businesses. With AdWords, we can show your ads on mobile devices and even allow potential customers to click on the phone number in your ad to call you directly.
Flexible marketing costs with full control
With AdWords we are able to manage and control your marketing costs by setting a fixed budget. We select the maximum amount that you are willing to spend, and you only pay when someone clicks on your ads and visits your website.
Gaining insight into marketing results
With AdWords we know exactly how many people saw your ad and how many clicked on it to visit your website. HWD provides reports, and consultations as you need them. We can also see how the market changes, to offer your even more traffic and you can opt to stay where you are, or increase your Google Budget to pursue more traffic.
How Hamptons Web Design Structures Your Campaigns
Your AdWords account has 3 main parts:
- Ad Groups & Ads
1 - Campaigns
A campaign is simply a way of organizing advertising efforts to help you achieve your goals. For example, if you owned an online clothing store, we might create separate campaigns for shoes, shirts, and pants and then create ads as part of each campaign.
2 - Ad Groups & Ads
Ad groups are exactly what they sound like — groups of ads — plus keywords. Ad groups allow us to create tightly themed keyword lists and ads for every product or service that you offer. For example, for your shoes campaign we might want to create an ad group for ‘ballet flats’, one for ‘moccasins’, and another for ‘sandals’. The more tightly themed your ad groups, the better.
3 - Keywords
Keywords are words and phrases that we choose as potential triggers for your ad. We should pick keywords based on what we think people are most likely to enter when they’re looking for your products or services on Google. But we have an advanced research system that allows us to “know” exactly what keywords people have typed in to find what you offer. It is not random, or guessing.
We can review, edit or delete keywords at any time continually honing your campaign(s) for optimal performance and reducing costs.
Example of how Campaigns and Ad groups are organized:
Campaign - Shoes
Moccasins: leather moccasins, suede moccasins, men’s moccasins, brown moccasins, white moccasins
Flip Flops: white flip flops, gold flip flops, beach flip flops, wedge flip flops, kid’s flip flop sandals
Ballet Flats: ivory ballet flats, ballet flat shoes, women’s ballet flats, buy ballet flats, ballet flats for sale

It also insures that they are consistent, duplicates are removed, they offer quality displays with photos, business hours, photo gallery etc., so your reputation across the web is improved. Reviews send a notification to you so you can view them or rebut. Additionally, we can update all of them quickly should information change at any time. This creates a quality business presence throughout many of the Internet’s most important Directories and sites and also monitors them for you. Throughout, HWD manages all of your listings for you.
Many free searches using important keywords bring up these Directory listings like Yelp, and will display them before they will show actual website listings. Directories today are considered important, so your business information has to be correct within them. When inconsistent listings or duplicates with incorrect information appear, this demerit your businesses Quality Score, which lowers the value of your Businesses Online Presence and Reputation.
Any of your pages in these Directories also have links to your site, which function as a quality back link also important for Local Search Optimization.

Domain Names are the core of your entire online presence.
Domain name management services at Hamptons Web Design enable you to have a Domain Name without the task of maintaining it yourself.
Domain Names run your online business - from Email Addresses associated with them, to your website and online marketing.
Domain Names need to be hosted and watched as well as renewed yearly. It's important to know that many businesses lose their domains every single day due to forgetting something as simple as changing an email address on a domain account, resulting in the loss of the domain. When a Domain Name is lost it's nearly impossible to get it back, and any services associated with it go down: Website Hosting, Email, even Marketing. Additionally, if the new owner wants to sell it back to you it can cost $1000's.
There are many extensions today from .com (the most important) to .Biz, .co, .info etc. The .com, .net and .org are the most popular - and you should own these versions of your main domain which also should be your businesses name. In addition, adding The before and NY after are two common ways others can steal your brand.
Once they have the domain, they can use it. Trademarking a Business Name does not Trademark the domain - you would have to have a separate trademark for the domain, and each extension. The least expensive way to insure no other business can obtain YOUR buisness name is to be sure YOU own it.
HWD can research, register and renew your domains for you, insuring you are the owner.
DOMAIN NAME MANAGEMENT INCLUDES:
- Research and suggestions for available domains.
- Registering them for you, insuring you own the domain.
- Watching the Domain Name to insure it's safe, and protected.
- Renewing it yearly.
- Managing what the domain does for you.
- Control DNS (Domain Name Server) Configurations so your website and emails work smoothly.
Search engine optimization (SEO) is simply the pursuit of improving visibility of your website in the various search engines, such as Google, Yahoo, Bing and others. This helps in both the unpaid search results and also in paid Google Advertising.
By optimizing you may show up higher in a search for your business or industry. The higher you are ranked on the search results page, and the more listings that show up about your business, the more visitors it will receive from the search engine's users.
Over 90% of searchers never move past the first page of results.
There are no guarantees on how the search engines will place your website. But through "Keywords" or "Key Phrase" Optimization there is a better chance of your website appearing on the first page of the free local business search results.
By using Hamptons Web Design's Optimization service your business has the advantage over your competitors who do not pursue this (and many do not.)
