Websites in Alabama starting at just $300!
Today when people need something they go online and search the Web for it
because it's fast, easy and convenient. In fact, people use the Internet more
than any other source to find the products and services they need.
If you want to grow your business then your business needs to be where the people are... online.
Getting a website for your business doesn't have to be expensive or stressful.
The cost for a starter business website starts at just $300 for a basic three page website similar to this one.
I can help you every step of the way getting your website up and running.
- Web Hosting

- Web Development
And once your website is up and operational I can help with:

If your needs are a little more basic I can make a one page website for your business starting at just $150.
Types of Websites
There are two types of websites - Dynamic and Static.
- Dynamic Websites gives you more control over your website.
You will have an admin area with easy to use forms that allow you to add/edit/delete information on your website with just a click of your mouse.
A Dynamic website is a good choice if you'll be updating your website on a frequent basis and want to do it yourself.
- Static Websites make up the bulk of the websites on the Web.
These are informational websites that tell people about a business, their products and services.
The content on a Dynamic website is stored in a database and is pulled out and display on a web page when a link is clicked.
The content on a Static website is written directly onto the web pages.
Whoever manages the website will need to know how to access the web server, transfer files from their computer to the server and be knowledgable of HTML / XHTML.
I provide "Webmaster" services, which means that I will maintain and
update your website (up to 30 minutes a month). The price for this begins at $240 a year and
can satisfy the needs of most businesses and it's well worth it.
Website maintenance means that I keep the code up to date and the website working properly.
Website updating means that I manage the information on your website.
At your direction I will add new information to your website and remove or edit old information.
And should your needs require a new web page I can seamlessly add it to your website.
Things You Should know
One of the surest ways to have your website hacked or compromised is to use an File Transfer Program
(FTP) such as Filezilla, CuteFTP, SmartFTP or something similar.
These programs store and transmit your server login information across the Internet
unencrypted and thus are easily stolen.
I've been to a number of websites only to have my anti-virus program
terminate the connection and alert me to a trojan, malware or virus on the website.
Chances are the site owners are completely unaware that there is a problem.
This is why you need someone maintaining and updating your website that understands
the dangers that exists on the Web and how to avoid them.
If you haven't already secured a Web Hosting Account for your website and
a Domain Name, please allow me to help with this.
The hosting service you choose will play an important part in your website's success.
I personally recommend IXwebhosting. They are a good company and they offer a great hosting plan.
Clicking on the image to the right will open up a new tab or window with this hosting plan.
This plan will satisfy the needs of most people, it's the Expert Plan using the Linux platform.
It costs $4.95 a month (paid yearly $59.40) and your domain name is free the first year and then just $7.95 a year.
Don't let the Linux platform part cause you any concern.
Their hosting plans come on either a "Windows" or "Linux" platform.
The Windows platform is more expensive and for those using older website code.
The Linux platform is the one you want because it is less expensive and superior in performance.
