Each website that we do has three pieces: 1) the customers wants and wishes, 2) state of the art back end code that best serves the customers needs and 3) a site that is optimized to download quickly and on all platforms as well as many of the older Operating Systems and browsers. We use graphic elements, rollovers, java, flash, php, cgi and xml as needed for the customers needs. We can design in Dreamweaver from ground up allowing us to use multiple types of backend code, dotNetNuke which gives you database backend access and module additions, or customization of your current site or a template of your choosing.

If you don't currently have a domain, we can help you register your domain or domains depending on what you want. If you've reserved a domain, most services will allow you to purchase or reserver the domain a second time, but most services only allow you 4 days at a time. If you don't register the domain, it goes on a list of domains that can be sold at a discounted rate for the first year, so these domains are usually sold much quicker. If you are undecided, it's almost better to not reserve the domain and go back at a later date to purchase.

The second step in creating a website is determinig the services you want to provide on your website. Will you sell items, is it a casual sale or is is more than that? Do you want to use paypal to process your sales or do you need your own merchant account? Is the site more of a resource? Do you need access to help articles, or membership capabilities? All of these things will make an impact on the website design as well as the host that you choose. You want to make sure that the host you choose provides the services that you want.

Finally, of course the design and how you want your website to work. Who you want to do the design and who is going to maintain your site? We'd be happy to talk to you about all of the items to help you make an informed decision.
