WebEssentials understands that for most clients having a web site designed is a new venture. Starting with your input, we enjoy the challenge of making your design visually appealing, organized and intuitive for your viewers.
Domain / web address
A domain name is the name (and address) of your web site. For example, my domain is “WebEssentials.com.” Your domain name should mirror your business name as close as possible to make it easy for people to remember. Each domain name can be used only once, so most common names are taken already. We'll research your choices for an available domain name and assist you with suggestions. Currently, you can use up to 67 characters in a domain name. Only letters, numbers and hyphens are allowed. The cost for registering a new domain and yearly renewal is $10.
Web site content
Your pages should contain descriptive, concise text. We'll work with your written introduction and product information to develop content for your site that highlights your unique attributes and offerings.
Images and graphics
We optimize your photos and graphics to provide the best balance of fast download speed and highest quality. Page backgrounds, navigation, text and buttons, and small touchups to the photos or graphics, supplied by you, are included in the web site package.
Hourly fees apply to logos or other graphics that need to be created from scratch.
Websites should be easy to navigate. If people don’t see how to get to what they need quickly, they'll leave. We create navigational elements so that viewers can easily find the information they're looking for. We design pages that are user friendly.
|Note: We usually recommend new clients let us register their domain for them. There is specific information that needs to be entered and some of that can't be easily changed after registration.
It's also important for you to know that your domain should be registered in YOUR name so that you legally own that name. WebEssentials always registers a domain in the clients’ name (with WebEssentials as a technical contact to allow us to handle maintenance and troubleshooting).
