Small Business Web Design
There are many benefits
to having a professional design your small business Web site, including better layout and functionality, technical expertise and guidance, and time savings. If you are considering going this route, please review our custom Web design
services and Website maintenance
services. If your company is a small business on a tight budget, or you are just a die-hard "do-it-yourselfer," our Site Builder service, which lets you create a business Website
yourself, might be a good alternative to custom design.
Business Web Site Hosting
Web site hosting
is a service that provides the storage and connectivity necessary for a Web site, e-mail, and/or Web-based databases. If we design your site for you, or if you purchase Web design software to build your small business Web site, such as Microsoft®
Dreamweaver, or NetObjects Fusion, you will need a basic Web hosting
plan to store your Web site files online. A reliable Web host is the foundation for a successful site. Some of the most important factors in choosing a small business host are the host's servers, data center, and network.
are Linux-based, high-end Web servers designed from the ground up with small business requirements in mind. The data center
where the servers are located features redundant connectivity to multiple network providers, advanced fire suppression systems, and diesel powered generators capable of independently sustaining server operations for more than a week. The combination of the Linux server platform and the state-of-the-art data center translates into the most stable environment available for your small business Web site, e-mail accounts, and databases.
Domain Name Registration
A domain name
is the unique name that identifies an Internet site. For example, "abcnews.com", "cnn.com", and "msnbc.com" are domain names. Every Web site you've ever been to, and every e-mail you've ever composed, has used a domain name in its address. People register domain names in order to claim a particular name - whether for business or personal reasons. Once a domain name is registered to a person or business, that registrant retains the right to use the domain name exclusively as long as they continue to pay the yearly renewal fee.
You can purchase a domain name
and renew your existing domain names through this Web site. If you're just planning to reserve your name for future use in your small business, or if you are planning to design your small business site yourself and have not already registered a domain name, this should be your first step.
Web Site Promotion
If your target audience does not know about your Web site, it's just a collection of meaningless files in cyberspace. On the other hand, if your site is listed in online search engines, and it is ranked well for targeted keyword terms, your site can be one of the most valuable assets of your small business. Web site promotion
is provided either as an integrated service with certain Web design packages or as a standalone service for existing Web sites.
