Website Design and Optimization
Q. When Web2000Host.com designs a Website, do you test your design across
A. Most definitely! We not only test
our designs in most recent releases of Microsoft Internet Explorer and
Netscape Navigator, we also test them for a variety of screen resolutions.
Currently, the "typical" Internet user is surfing the Web
on a 17" monitor, viewing it at 800 pixels wide by 600 pixels tall
and 1024 pixels wide by 768 tall. We optimize all of our Websites for
that size and do our best to accommodate all others.
Q. Is Web2000Host.com capable of adding any back-end functions to the design?
A. Yes! Many of our clients currently
use several back-end functions to enhance the performance of their Websites.
From handling forms in several different ways to graphical interfaces
to being able to update Web-based DB applications in real-time, we have
the ability and resources to create whatever back-end functions our
clients desire. We also offer our clients, the ability to utilize shopping
carts to conduct E-Commerce, chat rooms, message forums, multiple email
addresses, cam network setup, and right now are also in the completion
stages of setting up video streaming and pay-per-view video facilities.
Q. Is Web2000Host.com willing to design around items I already had designed
by someone else, such as my company logo? And, if I don't have a company
logo designed already, will Web2000Host.com design one for me?
A. Logos and Corporate IDs play an important role in business. Whether
it be for print advertising or the Web, the whole purpose of a Corporate
ID is to retain familiarity and recognition with your products and services.
Our design team will work with whatever promotional material you may
already have to achieve this goal. If you need assistance with your
logo or Corporate ID, we will be more than happy to design one for you.
Q. When designing a Website, do you include meta tags?
A. Absolutely Yes! Meta tags are used
to define meta data. What is meta data? In the most general terms, meta
data is information about a document (the Web page). In a "nutshell",
the whole underlying purpose of meta tags is to be picked up by the
search engines. When we design a Website, we will automatically optimize
custom meta tags for our clients. We will also submit your web site
initially to all of the major search engines.
Q. Why should I hire Web2000Host.com to professionally design my Website
when I can buy a program and do it myself?
A. Perhaps the best way to answer this question is, if your car needs
to be repaired, why do you take it to a mechanic? If you are sick, why
do you go to a doctor? Designing a site is not all that difficult, but
it takes experience, knowledge of the industry, and specific design
skills to develop a "GOOD" web site. Designing, maintaining
and hosting web sites is our business. It is something we specialize
in and do well. If you're going to have a chance of success online,
you need to do it right the first time, or you can end up wasting or
losing a lot of time and money. Hiring a professional gives you the
best shot possible at succeeding.
Besides this, there is also a learning curve that goes along with any
software program, you have an extensive time factor that comes into
play. While these W.Y.S.I.W.Y.G (What You See Is What You Get) programs
have come a long way to provide good looking templates, you shouldn't
be treated as cookie dough about to go into the cutter. We make sure
to take advantage of all new technologies and developments related to
the Internet to stay ahead of the wave and to pass the new functionality
on to our clients. By the time the software program is purchased, the
technology is out of date.
Q. What type of servers does Web2000Host.com use?
A. We use Linux-based servers, with multiple T-1 lines for speed and
reliability. All data is backed up on a nightly basis to protect your
sites' data. We monitor our server 24-hours a day, 7 days a week in
case of any unexpected problems that may arise. We can guarantee 99.9%
Q. What is Web2000Host.com' opinion on
free or cheap hosting?
A. Cheaper is not necessarily better, but a large price tag doesn't
mean your getting the best out there either. There are many start-up
companies offering either free or unbelievable hosting prices. Be wary
of "deals" that sound too good to be true, because often these
"great deal" companies go under, can't really live up to their
promises, or bombard your site with banner ads to cover the "great
deal" pricing. Other firms offer lower rates and then charge you
more for any additional features or support you may require. Don't get
nicked and dimed to death! Our hosting plan is all-inclusive! We continually
"shop" our competition to see how our prices compare. Apples
to apples, we are the most cost-effective solution! ** Note *** We also
offer business solutions where hosting is totally free! Contact
us for more information.
Q. Why do I need a Webmaster?
A. Most of our clients are not familiar with the more "technical"
aspects of the business. Neither do the majority of them even want to
get involved in this end of the business. They prefer to do what they
enjoy most and are good at; and leave the rest to the "techies".
This is why our motto is:
"YOU DO WHAT YOU ENJOY, AND WE'LL TAKE CARE OF THE REST!"
Your web business shopuld be fun and profitable. If it stops becoming
fun for you, production slides downhill, and before long, you're walking
away from the business with a bad taste in your mouth for the Internet.
Q. Why would a company outsource a Webmaster?
A. Cost. Hiring a full or even part time Web Designer / Webmaster, running
the ads, screening candidates, a hefty salary, benefits, vacation, sick-time,
personal days, etc
can be very expensive! You could save thousands
by contracting with Web2000Host.com. Our specialists are experts in
every possible ingredient of what it takes to keep your site current
and packed with up to date information! When there are new technologies
that arise, we're one of the first to take advantage of them!
Q. What if we don't need someone all the time?
A. Again, COST! Your personal Webmaster is an email away. We pride ourselves
in exceeding expectations! Be assured that when your request is received,
our team is working diligently to accommodate it! We value our clients
whether we provide them with one hour or eighty hours a week. Each client
receives the quality service we've been known to provide!
Q If we contract with Web2000Host.com, do we have to host our Website with
A. Any Web company would like to have the "entire package",
and we may be able to cut your hosting costs while providing better
service, however, it isn't required that you host your Website with
us. The beauty of the Internet is no matter where the site is hosted
, the Webmaster can seamlessly do the work anywhere in the world.
Q. What Websites has Web2000Host.com developed or maintained?
A. We handle numerous Websites from the very basic small business site
to small and large adult sites. Some of our sites, displaying this wide
range is available for review on our portfolio
page. Of course, being a part of the web2000host family also helps
you benefit tremendously from the traffic generated from all of the
other sites. Getting your name/site out there is absolutely essential
whether you run an online or off-line business. Having a strong network
of people and businesses behind you, is a very powerful and neeeded
advantage to have over the competition.
Q. If I want a shopping cart on the site,
or to make money from membership subscriptions to the site, can you
A. Absolutely! We can install shopping carts on your site, and set them
up to be making money for you. We can offer you various merchant account
solutions for accepting credit card transactions and/or electronic checks
to give you the maximum opportunity of geeting the sale. If you have
a web site for which you want to charge "membership" or "subscription"
fees, we can also set up your online billing facilities for these transactions.
We look forward to serving you!
