Creating Your Web Presence

There are 3 things you will need to get your business on the web. This webpage covers general info on each item.

.

1. Domain

You will need to register a domain name for your website. The first step is to search for an available name. We suggest you search at a name registrar or use the form below (there are many domain name registrars on the web) BUT only search for availability since we can provide you with a lower price than most registrars. Once you know what name you want contact us and we will secure that name for you. The domain name will be in your name and you will have full ownership of it but we will take care of all the technical DNS set-up needed. If you already have a name we can update the info for your domain to point to your new website (you still retain the full ownership)

Tip: Be sure to search at a registrar or use the form below since just typing in an address in a browser may seemingly show no such address when in fact the website may be down or not created yet.
Tip: #2: Shorter names are easier to remember. They can contain dashes and numbers also but these are not recommended.

2. Website

We can make a simple one page website or a multi-page site (most sites we make are 3-8 pages).
A typical one page site would have your logo, at least one photo (or you can just use the photo in the template if we are using a template), info about your product and/or service, contact info including a Google map link (if wanted). Minor website updates (such as contact info change, small text changes or a product/service price change) are
free - otherwise at our standard $45/hr. rate. Sub pages (linking to the home page) are at our standard 45.00/hr. rate which includes your supplied photo and text to us. Special items are at our $45/hr. rate such as Java programming, slide shows, audio files, forms, ecommerce set-up, etc. Site (any # of pages) includes keyword & description meta tags & submission to Google. Visit our Graphics for Web page for more info.

Ecommerce (online store) is more involved but we can do simple (via Paypal) to complete online store set-ups. Visit our Portfolio page for links to different types of sites including ecommerce.

Of course you can have any number of pages and call them anything you want but a professional organized website works best when well planned. Visit template websites to choose a template such as Template Monster and The Template Store. We can change the colors and customize these templates for your business or build a website totally from the ground up.

We provide a mobile webpage free with each website we make. Visit our Mobile page for more info.
