We offer complete services that will place your site on the Internet
starting with nothing but your inclination to go world wide. Your
initial consultation is always free. Here are the basics of what's
Domain Name Registration
This is the first step in creating a unique site. Your domain name, also known as the URL (Uniform Resource Locator) will serve as your address to all of cyberspace and will become your intellectual property. You should choose a name that is short and easily memorized but maintains the meaning behind it. We will include meta tags and submit your site to the major free search engines and directories (Google, DMOZ, etc.). You can also self-promote your new domain name by including it on business cards, letterhead, and in e-mail. Domain registration incurs an annual fee of $9-$10.
Layout and Design
CWD will create a web presence that not only reflects your individuality, but incorporates function and style. Whether the content of your site is business or personal, you are literally inviting the World to your doorstep and we aim to make your first impression last. We can design a custom business logo or include your present logo along with matching color schemes on the site. If you live in the Pittsburgh, PA area we can provide photography support for your site.
Once the content of your site is ready for the World to see, CWD will publish these files to a server that is accessible to anyone on the Internet 24 hours a day. There are many hosting services available on the web and each can easily be researched. We can also assist you in making your decision based on the needs of your site. Hosting fees vary by company and size of the hosting package that you choose. For an average small business, any basic plan offered by a company will be sufficient. These usually range from $8-$12 a month.
Maintenance and Updates
Even the best web site will get stale without new content and periodic maintenance. Visitors enjoy new articles, photos, and helpful tips and will visit your site repeatedly if the content is fresh. Updates are usually quick and will ensure you get the most from your Internet investment.
