I can create my own website using FrontPage/Dreamweaver. Why should I hire someone to develop my website?A professional web developer will be able to create a one-of-a-kind website, with unique graphics and customized content. Customers will form opinions and make buying decisions based on the design of a company's website. You will need a website that stands out from the crowd. If your competitors use cookie-cutter web design software, you will need a website designed specifically for your business. Also, a professional web developer will be able to handle the day-to-day maintenance of the website, and diagnose and fix problems as they arise.
How much does it cost?The answer to this question depends on the complexity of the site. Please use the "Contact" link to email me and request a quote.
What is a domain name? What is hosting?A domain name is simply the address of your website. For example, the domain of this website is kristensweb.com. When you purchase a domain, all you are doing is securing your website's address. In order to publish your site to the web, you need hosting. Hosting is a physical place to store your website. When you "host" your site, your website is stored on a computer called a "server", where it is available for viewing by anyone with access to the internet. I currently do not provide hosting or registration services, but I will assist you in obtaining your own. Registration costs about $15/year. Hosting for a basic website costs about $10/month, and I will walk you through the set up process.
What domain name should I choose?You will want to pick a domain name that is simple and easy to remember. Most commercial domain names end with ".com" or ".net". Non-profits should choose a domain name that ends in ".org". Keep in mind that you will want to choose a domain name that can be easily printed on business cards, advertisements, etc.
What should I put on my site?Anything you want your customers to know! This could include hours of operation, directions, photos, testimonials, or a contact form. Musicians may want to include some sample music.
