The length of time to complete your Web site depends on
your needs. A Web site may be simple or quite complex.
It may only take a few days to a week to complete your
entire Web site if you choose to include a logo, a few
pictures, and basic information about your company. If
you are wanting to include numerous pictures and/or
descriptions of many products, custom graphics, complex
designs, a searchable database, a company directory,
price lists, etc., your Web site will take additional
hours to design and complete. Also, a domain name (for
http://www.yourname.com) usually requires several
days to be established.
There are three different costs associated with getting
a Web site. They are registering a domain name, Web
hosting and Web design. You may register for a domain
name for $35.00 a year or less (for example, "http://www.yourname.com").
There are many registrars available to register your
domain name, and you will find that prices and services
vary, be wary of registrars that offer you cheap sign up
prices with many hidden costs added later, for example
they may offer a URL name for $10 but charge you $20 a
month for having an E-mail, total yearly cost for your
URL infact then becomes well over $200 and up! Eagle
Web Page Design can register for your domain name when
we set up your Web hosting account (see below).
The price of your Web page design and hosting varies.
Monthly professional Web hosting service usually starts
at about $19.95 a month. Warning-- be careful when
choosing a Web hosting service. There are wide
variations in fees and services offered by hosting
companies. Please make sure that you know what you are
getting. In addition to reliability issues, you should
also be concerned about the speed and redundancy of the
Web hosting service's connections to the Internet,
whether they have technical staff available at all times
in case of problems, the ability to maintain service
through power outages, the use of regular data back-ups,
etc. Keep in mind that smaller Web hosting companies
may not be able to afford the latest technology,
features, and support.
The cost of your Web page design will depend on your
needs. A basic Web page with a few images and/or
hyperlinks, and text can be inexpensive, but the price
will increase as you add more pages, links, features,
custom graphics and logo, text, etc.

Eagle Web Page Design recommends that you search for
some sites on the World Wide Web that are similar to the
Web site that you are planning to have created. For
instance, if you are planning a business Web site,
always look at some of your competitors. You can be sure
that each of your competitors has spent numerous hours
planning the company site, so analyzing these Web sites
and utilizing the best concepts will certainly be to
your benefit. You certainly do not want to copy another
company's Web site, but getting a few ideas from five or
ten well-designed Web sites will give you an excellent
place to start.
Eagle Web Page Design can help each individual determine
if you should have your own domain name (for example,
Although there are additional charges to have your own
domain name, this small investment will help make your
Web site more legitimate to individuals who are not
familiar with your company or services. Therefore, a
domain name is almost always a worthwhile investment.
Having your own domain name is basically additional name
recognition and advertising for your business. A Web
address like "http://www.yourcompany.com"
is much easier to remember and to promote than an
address like "http://www.yourinternetserviceprovider.net/users/yourcompany".
In addition, if you ever need to change your Internet
Service Provider or if they happen to close their
business, your Web site URL (address) would change, and
you would need to advertise a new Web location and
e-mail address. With your own domain name, you can
always transfer it to a new Web hosting service.
You can! Whether you are trying to sell products or
services or want to provide your clients with more
information about your business, you can almost surely
benefit from having your own Web site. Your business Web
site will provide your customers with information about
your company 24 hours a day and will be accessible all
over the world. Your domain name ("http://www.yourcompany.com")
will even offer more name recognition to your customers.
If you have a business, you probably receive many phone
calls from potential customers asking the same basic
questions. They may want more information about your
products or services, or perhaps would like to get a
price estimate. Once these potential customers have
their questions answered in one of more telephone
conversations, they may may decide that your
products/services are not appropriate for them. By
providing this frequently-requested, detailed
information on your Web site and directing people to
your Web site in all of your advertisements, it is very
possible that you can reduce the number of these
redundant phone calls. With a Web site, your potential
customers will be happy because they can learn about
your business and make their buying decisions in the
privacy of their homes, 24 hours a day. You will be
happy because you can have your staff working on other
projects rather than answering the telephone.
None! You can actually have your own Web site without
even owning a computer. However, at a minimum, you
should probably have a computer with a modem and an
e-mail account with an Internet Service Provider. Since
Eagle Web Page Design will create your Web site and
transfer it to a Web server of your choice, you do not
to own any
special equipment. Your Web site could direct people to
call you and / or send you e-mail.
Keep in mind that you can purchase a cellular phones and
PDAs that have the capabilities to receive e-mail.
Although this service is extra, think about how
convenient it would be to receive a copy of your e-mail
from your Web site directly on your cell phone.
Eagle Web Page Design will work with you to keep the
price of your Web site within your budget. Although we
will offer as much assistance as you need, you can do
several things to save money. The planning stages of
your Web site could take several hours by itself.
However, if you will analyze some of your competitors'
Web sites, write down the aspects that you like or
dislike, and get an idea of how you might organize your
site, it will provide an excellent place to start. In
addition, on pages where you will be providing detailed
company or product information, you can certainly
type this information on a computer word processing
program and provide us with a copy of the file on a disk
or send it to us via e-mail. Since we will only be
implementing this information rather than typing and
proofreading it, you will save money.
Although we can create low-priced Web sites to meet your
budget, we highly encourage you to consider spending
extra on important optional services such as custom
graphics and copywriting. Consider that many of your
competitors will also have or be getting Web sites. To
make your site stand out and have a more professional
image, custom graphics and well-written copy can make
Creating an attractive Web site and waiting for people
to locate it does not work. Eagle Web Page Design has
the know-how and insider connections to help you get
your Web site noticed. There are several important
search engines that now require a submission fee. We
can help you determine if you should pay to register
with these search engines. Keep in mind that many
search engines take 2-6 weeks to list your Web site, so
it may take several months to start receiving an
appreciable amount of visitors. In addition to
promoting your site to the search engines, make sure you
that you add information about your new Web site on all
of your printed materials, including business cards,
invoices, statements, etc.
Certainly! Eagle Web Page Design will evaluate your Web
site and offer suggestions for improvement. We will take
a look at the html coding to make sure it has been done
correctly and that your Web site will be viewed
correctly by most Web browsers and at various computer
monitor resolutions. We also check your site for ease of
navigation, broken hyperlinks, quick loading time, etc.
Eagle Web Page Design believes that a Web site should be
very well organized, regardless of whether the site has
only one page or hundreds of pages. Visitors to your
site should be able to easily find the information that
they want, and we can help you to achieve this goal!
