Many people are unclear about what it takes to
get a website. Here is an overview of our process.
1. Initial Consultation - There is no charge
for the initial consultation*. We will discuss your company and
its internet marketing needs in an effort to get a general scope
of the project. After this consultation, we will prepare and submit
a proposal including the estimated cost for your website. If you
like what you see, we'll proceed.
2. Domain Name Registration - You need
a unique domain name (www.yourbusiness.com), which costs $35/year.
We will search for an available domain and register it for you with
Network Solutions - the company that coordinates all domain registrations.
Some examples of domain name registars are:
3. Choosing A Host - All websites must
have a computer on which to reside. This computer is called a server
and has a high-speed, 24-hour-a-day connection to the internet.
The company that provides this server is called a host. Networthy
does not host websites. We will find a host that suits your needs
and then handle all the setup for you**.
4. Website Design & Creation - Work on
the actual design and creation of the website now begins. This includes
scanning images from your existing material, creating custom images,
determining the layout and navigation of your site, creating any
forms, adding counters, and anything else required by your site.
Your input is wanted and needed periodically during this process.
You'll be able to see the progress we're making and give us feedback
5. Going Live! - After your final approval,
your completed website will be transferred to its server where it
will be accessible to the world. Anyone in the world can now look
at your website by entering your domain name (www.yourbusiness.com)
into a web browser.
6. Search Engine Submission - After your
site is on the web, we will submit it to hundreds of search engines
and web directories (such as Yahoo!, Hotbot, Lycos, etc.). This
will make it easier for people to find your site when searching
for particular keywords that are relevant to your business.
* Up to 1 hour in person or by toll-free
phone call. Otherwise, free consultation period may vary according
to medium being used for consultation.
** The hosting agreement will be between
the host company and the client. Networthy only provides the service
of helping the client choose the host company and coordinating the
initial setup of client account with the host company. Therefore,
Networthy is not responsible for performance or reliability of the
