First, you need to decide what information you would like to offer on your site. This can be as brief as one page describing who you are, where your are, what you do, and how to contact you, or it can be as comprehensive as you wish. You can include as many pages as you like describing your products and services or offering information you feel is relative to the needs of your customers and the general public.
You need someone to design your website for you. That's us! We take your information and pictures, brochures, or other graphics and combine them to make attractive, readable, professional pages. We’ll work closely with you to make sure you get what you need and want.
Next, you need to have someplace to store your pages so they can be accessed by all Internet users. This is called a Web "Server." There are two ways of getting a "server"
Set up a computer in-house dedicated to Internet service. This option requires 24 hour maintenance availablity, a programmer and high speed communication lines. It is generally fairly expensive.
Rent a virtual server from an existing Internet Service Provider. By far the most common and least expensive way to get your web page out there is to rent space on another server. This is called a "virtual server".
The next step is to publish your Website to the server you have chosen. We offer Web hosting services through VenerNet (FastURL.com). They offer fast, reliable Internet connections with servers dedicated strictly to Web hosting, as well as excellent service,all at a reasonable price. Once you sign up with VenerNet you become a customer of VenerNet and they will handle your billing and technical service. Or you may choose the web hosting service of your choice. In general, we would not recommend "free" web hosting services as they often don't offer the same reliability and service as paid hosting.
Once your website is up and running, there will still be maintenance issues. You may want to add or update pages and add new features. If you have someone in your company who is able to do this for you, you're all set. If not, you'll need someone to take care of these things for you. For a small monthly fee, we will take care of your site and see that it is kept up to date and that all elements are working together properly.
