|Why are our Web sites better? |
We Can Get Your Business Online, Fast
Most Web developers keep you waiting for weeks before you can even look at your new site, but with our powerful Web site construction technology, we can have your new, feature-rich site up and running in no time! You’ll have access to all of the cutting-edge tools in our dynamic software so that you can make an informed decision about establishing your online presence.
Professional Layout and Design
Our Web designers and marketing experts have spent countless hours researching successful sites on the Internet in order to develop the most effective, professional Web site layouts and designs possible. If you ever want to change the look or feel of your site, you can quickly and easily make changes to your site. Our team of technical support professionals will even help.
10 Gigabytes of Storage Space
Each one of our Web sites boasts a massive 10GB of disk space - more than enough space to hold thousands of images and volumes of text. Most Web sites only use 20-30MB of space, so chances are you’ll only use a small fraction of the storage space you have. But as your business grows and becomes more successful, you can be confident that your Web site will be able to adapt to meet your changing needs.
Unlimited Site Modifications
With our Web site management platform, you control every aspect of your online presence - without learning a programming language or relying on an expensive Web professional. Our user-friendly software gives you the power to easily modify all of the text, images, colors, backgrounds, and components on your Web site as often as you want.
No Lengthy Contract Commitment
Unlike other solutions that make you commit to a lengthy Web site contract (with steep cancellation penalties), we give you the freedom to cancel at any time without any hidden fees. We’re so confident that you’ll be impressed with our Web site management platform and our excellent customer service that we are willing to earn your business month after month.
Automatic Software Upgrades
Our team of software developers is constantly adding new tools and features to our unique Web site building platform! As one of our Web site customers, you will always be one of the first on the Internet to access these powerful, cutting-edge tools at no additional cost.

WebMail Email Access
The sleek, user-friendly interface features many extra tools that you will not find with most standard email accounts.
Domain Name Registration
Securing your domain name is one of the most important steps in setting up your online business, and with our domain name tool, the registration process is quick and easy. Our system allows you to check on the availability of multiple .com, .net and other domain names at the same time, and if you already have an existing domain name, you can transfer it to point to your site.
Site Promotion Tool
No matter how impressive your Web site is, it’s not doing you any good if customers can’t find you online. With the Site Promotion Tool, we’ll help you increase your visibility on the World Wide Web by guiding you through the entire optimization and submission process—from choosing page keywords and descriptions, to submitting your site to several of the major search engines. We also provide you with tips on optimizing your site to improve your chances of ranking well with search engines.
Contact Management Tool
This useful feature allows you to organize and manage contact information for all of your customers, suppliers, and business associates. Once you have built up your customer database, you will be able to create and sent email newsletters announcing new product releases, upcoming sales, or any other special events and promotions.
Web Site Usage Statistics
As a business owner, it is important to evaluate how well your sales and marketing promotions are working, and we understand that your online business is no different. Inside the administrative section of your Web site, you’ll be able to access a variety of statistical tracking reports, such as: which search engines are generating the most traffic for your site, which keywords are resulting in the greatest number of hits, how many hits your site has received, where most of your hits are coming from, and which pages visitors looked at while on your site. Without usage data like this, you’ll have a difficult time making informed decisions about the effectiveness of your online sales and marketing efforts.
Integrated Map and Driving Directions
Whenever a new local customer finds your business online, one of the first things they'll want to know is "Where are you located?" Now your customers will be able to use the integrated map feature on your Web site to view a map displaying your exact location, or if they're unfamiliar with the area, your customers can enter their address and receive detailed instructions that will guide them right to your business.
