In order to have a website, there are 3 main components you will need:
You will need a domain name such as www.YourDomainName.com.
Domain names are registerd for 1 or more years and come with an annual fee. A domain name is linked with your
email, such as you@YourDomainName.com, and is how your customers will find your website on the Internet.
You will need web hosting. Web hosting refers to the server where your website lives on the Internet.
Web hosting packages are purchased annually.
Depending on what the requirements of your website are, construction can take anywhere from as little
as a few days to several weeks. Sometimes, websites can be rolled out in phases to maximize their
availability, but often they are launched as completed packages. An estimate of time will always
be given when a new proposal is made, so you will always be kept aware of the development progress.
The cost of your website will be directly proportional to it's complexity. A relatively simple
site will cost much less than one with advanced functionality. You will always be given a fair estimate
of costs before any project is started, and changes made during the development process will only happen
with your approval. Our prices are very competitive with the market for the high-level of expertise you can expect from us.
Web hosting refers to the annual package you purchase to host
your website on the Internet. The server-computer on which your website lives is called the "Host" and it serves
the contents of your website to those who request it.
The hosting package you will need will depend on what your website requirements are. We offer
3 levels of service to support your website's needs.
Our hosting partners are rock-solid and have provided excellent, continuously monitored service to our clients.
From the time you register a domain name (URL) and have us point it to your completed website,
it can take from 24-72 hours before typing in your URL will return your website. This process is known as domain resolution.
Typically, this step is completed first before your website is constructed in order to maximize your website's availability.
Since your email depends on having a domain name that will resolve, the same 24-72 hours is also required to have your
email account(s) fully functional. During this period, we can set up your new email accounts on our servers as well as on your
local computers so they are ready to use once the domain resolution is complete.
