    WHAT IS WEB DESIGN?:

  • The web language of the Internet is called HTML. This creates text and images that are "static", that is, they do not change per user's actions.

  • Web design is the arrangement of pictures and text in such a way that projects a static message to the world. Pictures may include active images with an industry standard tool called FLASH.

  • If testing a situation is involved, such as the time of day to determine if GOOD MORNING should be displayed instead of GOOD AFTERNOON, this then is the beginning of web programming.

  • Now there are three costs you should be aware of when it comes to establishing a website. Acquiring a "domain name", obtaining a website hosting service, and then the web design/programmer.

  • A domain name may be required if you want someone to be able to type www.yourbusiness.com to get to your site. We can help you secure a name and the company to buy it from. They usually charge about $10 annually.

  • Then there is the hosting of your web pages with your domain name. We can help you with find a company to host your site, this runs around $60 annually.

  • The web design and/or web programming we can provide. Continue reading for more details including rates.

  • TOOLS AND LANGUAGES USED:

  • HTML is the basic language of the Interent. There are quite a few commands to know and each one contains many optional content or definitions. The good news is that we have experience in all of it include the advanced commands.

  • CSS is used to enhance the text, images, tables, and overall layout of the pages that HTML just is not able to handle alone. We have a very good understanding of the many techniques used with CSS and can apply it inside HTML tags, as headers, and as an external CSS files.

  • JAVA is considered the beginning of web programming, however, used in design to format text and controls is essential, and we do develop with Java.

  • SWISH, an inexpensive tool to create FLASH like content for the web.

  • PERSONAL WEB PAGES:

  • Show the world what you love by placing your favorite pet, sports team, or family, etc. online.

  • You provide us the text and picture(s) or pay an additional hourly rate for us to do that part.

  • At $50 minimum cost, most sites can be done for about that or maybe $100. It depends upon your content and what you want.

  • SIMPLE BUSINESS WEB PRESENCE:

  • Include hyperlinks, automatic popup e-mail link, and connection to external links. And we suggest having:

  • Home Page - The first page the world sees when they visit your web site.

  • Contact Us - A very important page that provides the world all the methods that they can use to get in touch with you.

  • About Us - Tell your short story of how you came into existance, what business relationships you have, what drives you, or anything that convinces people to do business with you.

  • Directions - Provide a map and link to a mapping service so that they can get from there to you.

  • Services - Tell everyone what you provide and when you are available.

  • FAQ's - Answer popular questions so visitors can get answers quickly.

  • Other - Name a page anything you want and tell the world anything you want.

  • For up to five pages, you are looking at about $250 depending upon the complexity, if you have the text and images ready, etc.

  • LARGER BUSINESS PRESENCE:

  • If many pages are desired to provide tons of information for the world to have access to, we can do that. It is just a matter of time.

  • If the large presence is requiring content automatically changing, now you are becoming interested in web programming and have moved beyond web design alone.

  • Sites with more content draws more people, but in order to keep costs down, you may want to start simple and enlarge.

  • Additional pages can be added anytime.

  • At about an hour a page, give or take the complexity, you are looking at about $50 per page.

  • ONLINE BUSINESS WEB SITE:

  • This is a combination of web design and web programming.

  • Though web design influences what a person views, web programming occurs in the background to control the content.

  • The good news is that we can do both.

  • A lot of web designers do not have web programming skills nor the necessary database understanding of SQL or Microsoft Access.

  • At $50 per hour we can either have an ongoing relationship or we can provide project quotes. Long term relationships are eligible for an hourly discount.
