your domain name is important. It will be the way that you will be identified
online. There are specific advantages to choosing a name that refers
to a specific product or service that you may deal in. Or, using your
existing company/business name in some form also makes good sense. There
are excellent technical reasons for choosing a particular domain name
and we will be happy to discuss them with you.
web hosting or web presence provider: This is the company that
will provide the computers that your website will reside on. We can
recommend several excellent companies that can do this work for you.
We will also assist you in setting up your web hosting account. In turn,
you will provide us with access to your website to upload, set-up, and
troubleshoot the site. We will continue to need access to the site for
at least sixty days unless you have contracted with us to maintain your
site. In that case, we will need access for the term of the contract.
written content or text: Your website will communicate for you
on the Internet. You will have to make choices as to what you want to
say and how you want to say it. We can offer you ideas as to what sort
of text copy will fit and be appropriate for a given page or site. Providing
us with your text in digital form (email, on disk, etc.), what we call
ready" will save you both time and money.
graphics: The type of site we create for you will depend on your
needs and wishes. As the Internet is a visual medium, we will want to
include graphic elements as either integral elements or embellishments
to your site. If you are planning an extensive retail or wholesale site,
you may have to make choices from hundreds of pictures, drawings, illustrations,
etc. As with the text elements for your site, providing graphical information
in digital, web-ready form will be most economical for you.

take the content you provide and construct a website to meet your requirements.
We will consult with you, as needed, and as necessary, provide you with
updates on work progress.

make sure that it is functioning properly. We also provide a free tune
up of your site.
