Sligo Web Development and Design Consultant provides many unique services for individual users and small businesses. We go the extra mile, paying attention to every detail in each project. We strive to exceed your expectations, and will do everything in our power to ensure that you are completely satisfied.
We believe there is no escaping technology these days. In the information age, failing to integrate your business with the web will prevent you from making the most of many time-saving and business-growing opportunities. Whether the site of your dreams is a photography portfolio, blog, or full-featured e-commerce site, consulting from Neat Web Page Design will bring it within reach.
Our service begins with a discussion of your needs, any current assets you may possess, and the goals you’ve set for your website. Once we understand what you want from your site, the creation process begins.
We will assist you in selecting the best “look” for your website from our gallery if you haven’t already chosen one. All of our templates are customizable, and the image experts at Neat Page Design would be delighted to make any color changes or image tweaks you request.
Once everything is to your liking, we’ll discuss the content of your website. It’s a good idea to either have the content itself ready before you contact us or have a list of the content that will be on your site available. This will help expedite the setup process.
All told, your website can be fully set up and ready to use within 1-5 days. This includes:
Domain Registration & Configuration
Web Hosting Registration & Configuration
Creation of E-Mail Accounts
Creation of FTP and sFTP (FTP over SSH) accounts
Website content framework setup
Step 2 involves ordering a web hosting provider. A Webhost is a company that provides server space (the “plot of land” your website will be built on). Once you have contracted a web host and bought a domain, you must configure your domain to point to your web hosting account. This will allow viewers to see your website on their computers when they enter your URL into their web browser. We will configure this for you if you buy a site from our store. See Consulting (Step 3) for more information. Web hosting costs can range from $6/mo to over $30/mo. For most site owners, web hosting won’t cost more than $15/mo, but if you expect your website to have over 200 users online at all times, you should invest in a more expensive plan.
Tips on picking a Webhost –
Read the fine print! If you were to spend hours and hours comparing only the superficial features of web hosts (such as storage space and bandwidth), you might end up contracting a web host that has lots of “little details” in their Terms of Service Agreement. These so-called “little details” can actually make a big difference in your web hosting experience. These hosts do exist, and some of them are quite popular, so be careful.
Regardless of whom you choose, be sure to read third-party user reviews before buying hosting. If a web host provides services differently than advertised, it’s bound to be mentioned in reviews.
Sligo Web Designs Favorite Web Hosting Provider
The web host we recommend is HostNine (www.hostnine.com). They are an established hosting company with an excellent reputation for supporting their customers. Not only are they up-front about their hosting plan, but they tell you what the cost of a Virtual Private Server will be if your website does become extremely popular. Unfortunately, other (less honest) Web hosts may simply lock you out from your data, or disable your website until new invoices are met.
A. Shared HostNine Plan: Hosting your website on our Dreamhost account can save you approximately $70 – 80 dollars a year. All requests pertaining to your web host can be handled either online through our Live Support Chat, our Support Ticket Department or simply over the phone. This means all E-Mail Addresses and FTP accounts you wish to be setup are handled by us within 24 hours.
B. Independent HostNine Account: While this option is not the cheapest of the three options, it does give you more direct access to your web host. This means you have the ability to create E-Mail accounts and more without having to go through Support Online or over the phone. To show you how easy it could be, HostNine has a Demo Control Panel available to see just how easy managing your hosting is.
