These are a few frequently asked questions asked by us almost everyday. We have tried to answer them here.
What is a Web Address (domain name)?
Practically speaking, your Web Address is your Internet identity and your online brand. Your customers will remember this name and use it to find your Web site, your products or your services. And since no two parties can ever hold the exact Web Address simultaneously, your Internet identity is totally unique.Technically, a Web Address is an addressing construct used for identifying and locating computers on the Internet. While computers use Internet Protocol (IP) numbers to locate each other on the Internet, people find them hard to remember. Therefore, Web Addresses were developed to permit the use of easily remembered words and phrases to identify Internet addresses.For example, the Web Address yourcompany.com represents the The Web Pro’s Web site. When you type yourcompany.com into a Web browser or send e-mail to someone at yourcompany.com, the Domain Name System (DNS) translates yourcompany.com into the IP numbers used by the Internet and connects you to The Web Pros.
You can use an existing Web address or request a new one.
In order to establish your online identity with a Web site, you’ll need the name and number of at least two computers (known as hosts or name servers), so your customers can find you on the Internet. You may have these special computers in your organization, or you may need to arrange for name service with an Internet Service Provider or Web hosting company.
Most hosting providers do not charge to transfer a Web address.
To simplify the process of getting your Web site up and running, we automatically arrange your Web site hosting for you. We partner with leading, reliable hosting providers as well.
Your Web site must have a Web address in order to be found on the Internet. And you have to have a Web address to subscribe to our plans. But if you want to get a Web site now (and register your Web address later) you can have The Web Pros build your site, then download the site to your computer. Just remember that your Web site won’t be on the Internet until you have registered your Web address. Your next step will be to arrange for the Web site to be hosted by the provider of your choice. Many hosting providers offer “third level domain names” (e.g. www.yourcompany.abccompany.com). If you have dial up access to the Internet through an Internet Service Provider (ISP) you may already have space for a Web site with a third level domain name. Check with your existing provider for details. You can also get a domain name from us.
Web site designs are professional-quality templates that include complex features such as intricate page layouts (versus basic headers and wallpapers), custom interactive buttons (versus hyperlink navigation), unique font and color schemes (versus basic HTML text styles), and the use of dynamic button rollovers.
Yes, we let you preview your personalized Web site before you publish it. Each time we change your content you can preview your site to make sure you like what you see. And, you can change your content after we’ve published it.
For the basic plan, we can quickly create your Web site within 5 business days, after you haev selected the preview, and present it to you online. Once you review and give us your feedback, the remaining process to complete the site and make it live online takes an additional 3 to 7 business days. For advanved plans, we provide you with a timeline as per the project.
Our Web sites are designed to be flexible and to grow with your business. You can always update your text and graphics by simply requesting your changes. All changes in text are free for first 30 days. Thereafter, a nominal charge applies.
In the event you wish to select a different design from our gallery after the initial presentation of the Web site, you will be subject to a $30.00 Design Change fee.
Quite often if a client simply needs a quick change such as editing text which will only take a few minutes we simply do it for free. If the changes or additions appear to be significant then we either produce another contract for the development at a fixed cost, or simply bill you at our current hourly rate. Currently our rates start at $5.00 per hour for design and $10.00 per hour for programming.
Each Web site design gives you the structure for your site and then you can add unique elements according to your needs. You can include your company name, logo, artwork, photos, personalized text, button headers etc. In addition, our library of designs is always growing.
