Whether you need a basic web site that simply lets the world know how to get in contact with you, or a more elaborate web site with online shopping capabilities, I can design a site to meets your needs. My services include developing and implementing all elements on your site, from organizing your materials into a logical sequence, to graphic design, to getting you onto the web. Your web site’s ‘look and feel’ can be something we work on from scratch, or something based on ideas you have seen in other sites that you like.
The web site’s domain name is what most people refer to as a ‘web site address’, such as ‘www.yourcompanyname.com’. Web site domain names are registered through separate companies known as domain registrars. Spurfire can assist you in registering a domain name with the proper organization, and also help you choose a name that will help customers find your web site more easily. We charge $10 per domain name per year. Often times multiple domain names are beneficial in getting more hits to your site. Please contact us today and get your domain registered before it is unavailable!
Registering your web site with the search engines (Google, Bing, Yahoo, etc.) is included with all websites we design. It is the first step in creating a visible online identity. Spurfire has the experience necessary to ‘optimize’ your web site in a manner that can help your site’s ranking in the search engines and bring you more traffic. For more detailed information on this process, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Web site files reside on special computers (known as ‘servers’) that are hooked into the internet 24 hours a day. Website hosting starts at $50 per year for hosting for basic sites and for the more complicated websites (ie. Online Stores) hosting is negotiable. We strongly suggest avoiding the ‘free’ or reduced fee services, since these are often unreliable and may include irritating pop-up ads that distract the user from your own web site.
Confused about how to set up and retrieve your e-mail? Need more than one e-mail address for your company? I can arrange this important service for you, as well as teach you how to access and reply to your e-mails from the office or while on the road… and it’s all included with your website!
It’s possible that you or your staff may have the capabilities to make updates to your web site after it’s finished. If so, We are happy to show you how to do this. If you prefer that we make updates to your site, there is a variety of options:
- For very simple changes, such as modifying a few lines of text, there is usually no charge.
- For more involved changes to your site, such as adding new pages, complete revisions of pages, graphics work, etc., the fee is $60 per hour. Depending on the amount of work involved, we can arrange billing on a monthly or quarterly basis.
- If you think that your web site will need updates on a frequent basis, you may opt to enter into a quarterly maintenance contract.
