Own business: Internet cinema
To get started, the first thing you need to register as a business entity. The easiest way is to form a legal entity, and the preferred form is a limited liability company, because in this case, as in the case of individual entrepreneurship, a simplified taxation system will be available, which involves transferring to the state no more than 6% of income or 15% from operating profit. The activity itself falls under the definition (JECD 2) 63.12 The content of the portals on the information and communication network on the Internet. The site is not a mass medium, so obtaining the relevant certificate is not required for its activities (as relevant, at least, for now, because there are already talks about equating sites with high traffic to media), but an entrepreneur can register his site as Media because it gives some advantages when working. Only you need to understand that this applies to sites that acquire the rights to show films, and this does not always happen in this area of business. And this concerns not necessarily pirated sites. In more detail about whether it is necessary to receive the rights – below.
Directly for the implementation of activities need to choose a domain name. The name should be memorable and as simple as possible, it is desirable to register it in the zone .ru or .рф, however this is not always convenient. This does not greatly affect search engines, so you can consider the option of registering a domain name in .com or .org format, or you can register it at all in neutral territory. In general, since the site will be Russian-language, the search engines will take it into account, and SEO-optimization in any case will have to be carried out. In general, the name is chosen in the first place so that the client can easily remember it and return to the website not through search engines, but by direct request.
When this issue is resolved, you can proceed to search for a hosting company. The hosting company can also help with the search and registration of the domain, but its main task is to provide space on the server to host the content (or rather, the entire site and additional resources). If an entrepreneur has enough capacity to maintain their servers and to maintain work, then you can not contact an outsourcer, but for beginners it is recommended to start cooperating with a hosting provider. The cost of service in such a company varies greatly depending on the conditions of work, not least depends on the package of services provided and the format of service, because there are different types of servers and different types of access. If the proposed types of services are interesting by hosting companies or there is a desire to independently organize your server and then provide general access, then you can read information about it here. Opening your own hosting company and even just having a server can be very difficult.
The next stage is the creation of the site itself. This article will not go into technical details, noting that there are several types of engines that provide portal functionality. In general, this is the lot of programmers, and if an entrepreneur is not an expert in this field, then at this stage he needs to find professionals who will later work for him, helping to maintain the site. There is, of course, the option of working with an outside organization that provides services in the IT sphere, but these are extra monthly expenses and, most importantly, the inability to fully control your website and have prompt access to management. Although there are a lot of options, depending on the conditions of cooperation. The same hosting companies often offer IT outsourcing, and a partner can order the development of the site and its content. Every entrepreneur, even at the stage of the business plan, determines the most appropriate format for his work, and the economic planning and calculation tools will help him. Website creation is a rather complicated process, and given the considerable level of competition, as well as the specifics of its direction, the site should be “beautiful” and convenient, informative, ergonomic, functional and optimized at the code level.
