Setting up a new business is exciting and sometimes overwhelming! There are so many things to think about, that technology often gets left in the ‘we will sort it out later’ category. 

As D.I.Y Kiwis we pride ourselves on our ability to do it ourselves. What a lot of businesses don’t realise is that it often takes more time and money to fix things up later. 

Often we have businesses come to us who are expanding at a rapid rate, and wish they had taken a bit more time to start out on the right foot with their technology. 

This is where we can help you by coordinating everything from the beginning, and ensuring that your technology gets off on the right foot. We can help you to:

  • Acquire a domain name
  • Set up your email 
  • Get IT Networks set up
  • Sort out equipment. 
  • Choose software and get it installed and running properly.

Setting up the domain name: 

Setting up a domain name may seem like a simple enough task, however who you use is very important. There can be implications with security further down the track if you are set up with the wrong people. We are able to work with your web developer on this. 


We can work with your website developer or recommend a trusted web developer, or if your needs are simple, we will happily include a one page website with our IT Headstart package. 

Getting started with the right Email:

Nothing says unprofessional like an email that is from a free email service like; hotmail  or xtra account, gmail. First impressions count and it is worth having an email address that ensures you not only look professional, but also have the security and features that other businesses are now requiring. 


In this day and age, it is crucial to have your security sorted out right from the beginning. A security breach can happen to any sized business, and can cost you a lot of money, time and reputation. It is often just a few size appropriate security steps that can make a big difference to your business. 

Note – Avoid the free products:

It is tempting to use many of the “free services” that are on offer, but often these become very expensive as you expand and need to pay for them or move to another service.
