So, how do you start an online business with less than N5,000?

Starting An Online Business

The starting point of having an online business is to have a site concept or idea around which your website will be centred. An ongoing business that is already well-known offline can continue with its business concept by simply shifting its focus to having online presence.

If this is the case with you, the site concept of your online business can be centred around the operational activities of your offline business.

After you have established what your site concept will be, the next thing to do is to have a domain name. If you are unsure of what domain name to use for your online business, you can use the domain name suggestion tool of this website.

Nevertheless, whichever domain name you eventually settle for, it is very important that you weave in your site concept around your domain name. For instance, if your site concept is fish farming and your target audience is Nigerians, then you may decide to use or as your domain name.

What does it cost to get your domain name registered in Nigeria? N-O-T-H-I-N-G! What?! Yes! Domain name registration is free at
