Q: What will
be required from me to develop my web site?
much as possible information about your business, including
any brochures, photos, letterhead, pamphlets, etc. If
you don't already have a brochure, you can briefly write
something about the products or services you provide
and the market you are aiming at. Once we understand
your business we can also make suggestions in this regard.
Photos may be provided to us in electronic form (CD,
etc.) or hard copy photos which we will scan and return
the originals back to you. If you think your photos
may not be good enough, we can always try to enhance
them before they are used on the web site. If you need
a make to your business to be placed on the web site,
we will provide it.
Q: Do I need
to be connected to the Internet to have a web site
No. If you provide us with the necessary hard
copy information and photos about your business, we
will design and place it on the Internet without any
further action required from you. We can provide
you with a printout for acceptance before it is loaded
on the Internet. If you need Internet access,
you need a computer with a modem, a telephone line and
you need to subscribe with an Internet service provider.
Major companies that provide this service is the
major banks (cheapest if you are already a customer),
Telkom, Mweb, Polka, etc.
Q: What should
I name my web site?
A: This should typically be
the name of your business. As most businesses
in South Africa use the .co.za extension, it is best
to use this as most potential customers will guess this
extension and is easily remembered. You can also
opt for other extensions such as .net or .org or
.com which have slightly different price structured
attached to them. Our web design package includes
the registration of your own domain name such as www.your-bussines-name.co.za.
The most important part of your web address is
that it must be easily remembered and if your business
name is already very long, you may want to abbreviate
it. Should you have various business names that
you use, you can register a web address (domain name)
for each one of them and we can link them in such a
way that they will all refer to your main web site. Registration
of additional domains on the .co.za domain costs only
R195 with an annual fee after the first year of R95.
