We are proud to announce the launch of our new company logo as part of the 4th anniversary celebration and ongoing evolution of our company’s brand.
Our business is growing over the last 4 years, and we thought it is time for a change. We have redesign our logo to reflect who we are today, what we do and to symbolize our dynamic future. We are proud of our services. That’s why our new logo retains core elements, including the globe and mouse pointer.
This month, we’re going to update all our marketing materials, online presence, stationery, etc with the new logo. We know that changing a logo is a process that can involve many steps and take some time, so we will finalize it step by step.
If you have used the SHINE DADDY logo in any of your marketing materials, please assist us in updating them. We appreciate your kind support and invite you to follow SHINE DADDY Logo Guidelines. Meanwhile, in case you are in the process of producing some new media and you would like to use new SHINE DADDY logo please contact us at email@example.com to get the new artwork.
Today is Shine Daddy’s 4th anniversary.
It’s been a tough journey so far, and I’m so grateful to God Almighty to be a part of it today. It’s not easy to build a business, and I try to remind myself to stay focus and do the best thing I can.
People often ask if it’s easy to build a business. I always tell then it’s not easy. But if I can do it, you can too.
I remember when I want to quit my job at Procter and Gamble and travelling to a foreign land to look for green pastures. I told my friends I was excited to start my own business, and be my own boss. Given people the power to build their own website themselves is a great idea and I am passionate about it.
When I look back on the last 4 years, one question I ask myself is: how do I start my own business? I’m not a University graduate. I’m a foreigner in this country, I don’t have enough money and also have a very fewer resources. The only answer I can think of is: I cared about starting my own business and I care about designing more than anyone else. But I have no knowledge. So, how can I build my own business?
I cared about everyone, and I like each and everyone to build website for their business. And that is what we do today. Although, we have added other services such as Mobile Money and Money Transfer, which allows anyone to send and receive money to and from Nigeria, and I’m excited about it and what it’s going to become in the next five years.
The statistics indicate the first four to five years are the “survival years.” But I thank God Almighty that allows us to survive the first four years and we pray to survive many more years and be a big company that everyone wishes to own.
It’s amazing to see many people have used our services and used our tools to build a real website for their business and organization. Many have send and receive fund through us. We created this new services to help Nigerian in Ghana to get your money back home, and we continue to help small businesses and organization to get their business online.
I’m so grateful to be able to build this business. Thank you for your patronage and for letting me be a part of this journey. We hope to serve you better in the nearest future.

If you’re new to web hosting, this article will help you get started.
1. Set up Your Web Hosting Account
Without setting up your web hosting account, you can’t do anything with it. So, check out Set up your account.
2. Upload Your Website
After setting up your web hosting account, you need to get your website’s files on it. There are a number of ways to do this, including using the application you used to build your website and using an FTP client.
You probably only need to use one of these articles.
3. Preview Your Site
Once you have your website uploaded, check it out using Preview DNS. For more information, see Preview your website.
If you don’t see your website (oh no!), make sure you have an “index file.” For more information, see What file displays when someone browses to my domain name?
To see if you have a default file, open up your FTP client/website application and make sure you have one of the files listed in the top level of your hosting account, also known as “the root.”
4. Make Your Site Live
Depending on how you configured your hosting account, your website might already be live. Check it out by going to your domain name.
If it’s not live, you probably need to update your DNS. For more information, see Change nameservers for my domains.
Hosting (also known as website hosting or Web hosting) is the business of housing, serving, and maintaining files for one or more websites. In a sense, you rent space on a computer to hold your website. Your host, the computer where your website files are stored, assigns an address (DNS) for your files to your domain name so that anyone can find your website on the Internet by typing in your domain name.
