Q - What type of business is the Business Presence package suited for?
A - Any business that wants an online presence. This can be a small local mom-and-pop operation or a large multi-national corporation that requires only a simple website to reach their customers.
Q - Why should I choose a Business Presence package over a standard hosting package?
A - The Business Presence package offers the most convenient way to establish your online business presence. With a standard hosting package, you are responsible for designing your own website and maintaining the “inner workings” of the web server in order to keep your site operational. Our Business Presence package INCLUDES a professionally designed web page, eliminating the need for you to purchase HTML editing software and eliminating the need to learn how to design the site yourself. Plus, when server software needs updating, we take care of that as well. With a Business Presence package all of this is done for you, so you can concentrate on running your business, not on maintaining your website.
Q - What is a domain name?
A - A domain name is your unique address on the Internet. No two domain names can be exactly alike. If you already have a domain name you can simply transfer that domain name to us for use with your account. If not you will be able to register your own domain name during the checkout process. Be prepared though. Since every domain must be unique you should have a second and third choice in mind - just in case.
Whichever method you choose, your business website will be located at yourdomain.com. Your email address will be email@example.com. Having an email address that originates from your domain name installs a more professional impression then say, for example, using a gmail or yahoo email address.
Of course, if you choose to do so, you are always free to continue using any existing email address(es) you may have, such as an existing gmail address.
Q - I already have a website. Can I use it with a Business Presence hosting package?
A - An existing website cannot be transferred to a Business Presence hosting account. Each Business Presence package is specially priced and designed for those looking to establish an online presence as quickly and as inexpensively as possible. Each specially priced package includes custom design and hosting. Because the service is designed solely for this purpose, no deviations from the pre-defined packages can be made.
Q - Dedicated IP
A - Need a dedicated IP address for your site? You can add a dedicated IP address to any of our Business Presence packages during checkout.
Once you have a dedicated IP you can also add an SSL certificate for secure communications; for use with a contact form for example.
Other add-ons may be available. Contact us with any questions or special needs you may have.
At the end of six months your Business Presence Hosting can be renewed at $29.70 for six months ($4.95 mo) or $47.40 for one year ($3.95 mo).
