Designing the Website ‘Made for You’…
First, the Domain Name…
There is much involved with the design and development of a website.
The first thing you’ll need is a “domain name”. This is a name that can be easily found on the internet by typing it into the address bar. Our “domain name” is www.dynamic-graphics.com.
The best domain name will be one that names your company or organization. You may have to choose from a variation if the one you want is already taken. We will research and offer you the options for a domain name. The yearly fee for a domain name is $25, which includes our researching and obtaining it for you, and making sure it gets renewed each year before it expires. (It is quite easy to let a domain name lapse – it needs to be renewed yearly in order to keep the name and the site that goes with it – and there are many companies on the internet just waiting to grab your domain name should that happen, and then sell it back to you – for big bucks! We make sure this doesn’t happen.)
Then the “Host”…
A website address (domain name) needs a place to park on the Internet. The web “host” is where you “park your website”. There is always a monthly or yearly fee to do so. The hosting service you decide to use is very important – as to availability (how many times does the host site go down?) to speed. This will be determined by the number and speed of the computers used at the host site. Our hosting service has a record of 99.9% “up” time, with a monthly rate starting at only $18.95 per month!*
Next comes the Design and Development of the Website…
Websites are designed using a variety of coding languages. One of the main ones is called “html.” Here is an example of what the html coding looks like:
<p align=”center”><font color=”#990000″ size=”2″>Copyright 2001© Dynamic Graphics Website Design & Hosting Services. All rights reserved.</font> </p></td>
<td bgcolor=”#FFFFFF”> </td>
On a web page, the above would appear as: Copyright 2001© Dynamic Graphics Website Design & Hosting Services. All rights reserved.
Graphic elements are used, creating a unique look to the website with a colored or textured background, including a masthead, buttons and bullets, photos and various other design elements. Finishing touches might include a counter, an email link, a mailing list or a form.
If you allow us to design your website, we will review your ideas with you, and offer input to develop a clean and professional looking site. We can incorporate your logo and “colors” for you, along with descriptions of your business or organization, and any information you wish to offer the visitors you’ll get.
Here’s How to Get Started…
Should you decide you would like a website to promote your business or organization, getting started is simple (we do all the hard work!) Here’s what you’ll need:
1. A preferred domain name.
2. Basic information about your business or organization: Name, address, phone #, etc.
3. A description of what you are offering on your website (services, products, information, etc.)
4. A list of what you’d like to include on your website. We will provide a planning worksheet to help ‘walk you through’ this portion.
Your Website is Ready to Go Live…
Once the website is designed, we will obtain your approval, and then “upload” the site to the Internet. It will then be “live” for anyone to visit.
Submitting to Search Engines…
The next step will be to submit your site to the various search engines so it can be easily found through keywords or phrases, in addition to your actual website address. We will work with you to develop a list of “keywords” to create “metatags” – invisible to the viewer, but important to the search engine ‘bots and ‘spiders’ – the automated programs which will ‘read’ your site, and then list it in the search engine according to the appropriate categories.
