Why Hire A Designer?

A lot of business owners and entrepreneurs start with no money. They have to do everything themselves — the preparation of a product, the development of a marketing strategy, the actual building of a website to cater to their product’s marketing needs. As their business expands over time, they will find that their simple “homemade” site might not be enough to cover everything, and they will have to take a day or two away to simply dedicate that to the website expansion.

Sounds familiar? Chances are, you’re someone who started everything with no money too, so you’re pretty skeptical when it comes to giving away your money in exchange for something that you could have done yourself. However, there is a lot more to hiring a designer than just finishing up a job that you don’t want to do.

When you hire a web designer to do your job for you, you are doing more than just handing over the “dirty job” to someone else. In fact, by paying a little money, you can let the designer handle the tech-side and the little annoyances that always evade the main picture and only come haunting when you’re halfway through the job. That way, you will be more focused and have more time to spend on your actual business strategy.

When seeking a Web Designer, be sure to get credible designers. Shop Around.. the designer should be knowledgeable, skilled professionals and good at what they do. By outsourcing your web design jobs to us, you won’t have to worry when problems surface because we can always get most issues resolved in less than an hour.

Also, the work you pay for will turn out more professional than what you can achieve because our award -winning designers  (12 Yrs experience)have been doing it longer than you have. After all, we do it for a living so we have to be good!

Web Design: Good Web Design Practices

Good Web Design Practices should never be taken lightly. Your website is where your business resides — it’s like the headquarter of an offline company. When approaching web design, Planning is everything. You should have a blueprint or layout. Hence, it is important to practice good design principles to make sure your site reaches out to the maximum number of visitors and sells to as many people as possible.

 Make sure you have clear directions on the navigation of your website. The navigation menu should be uncluttered and concise so that visitors know how to navigate around your website without confusion. Remember the rule: Keep It Simple. “Simple” doesn’t mean boring..

Reduce the number of images on your website. They make your site load very slowly and more often than not they are very unnecessary. If you think any image is essential on your site, make sure you optimize them using image editing programs so that they have a minimum file size.

Keep your text paragraphs at a reasonable length. If a paragraph is too long, you should split it into separate paragraphs so that the text blocks will not be too big. This is important because a block of text that is too large will deter visitors from reading your content.

Make sure your website complies to web standards at http://www.w3.org and make sure they are cross-browser compatible*. If your website looks great in Internet Explorer but breaks horribly in Firefox and Opera, you will lose out on a lot of prospective visitors.

Avoid using scripting languages on your site unless it is absolutely necessary. Use scripting languages to handle or manipulate data, not to create visual effects on your website. Heavy scripts will slow down the loading time of your site and even crash some browsers. Also, scripts are not supported across all browsers, so some visitors might miss important information because of that.

*Use CSS to style your page content because they save alot of work by styling all elements on your website in one go.

We strive to ensure maximum data protection and uptime for our customers’ web sites, that’s the reason why we have added a specially designed anti-DdoS device to protect our network from unfriendly outer attacks.

All our servers in the US data center are now part of our new cloud hosting platform whose main goal is to minimize all possible downtimes and to offer a significant increase in the performance of both your Control Panel and your website. Here is just a short list of the benefits you will enjoy in our US data center with our cloud hosting platform:

  • enhanced service stability – we store different services (emails, MySQL databases, etc.) on different servers so as to make our overall platform less vulnerable to hack/DDoS attacks.
  • faster servers – we have recently upgraded our network to 10 Gbps, which means that our servers are faster than ever and so will be your website
  • faster maintenance – by ensuring spare servers, we have simplified server maintenance procedures and hence minimized frustrating service interruptions and downtimes
  • migration to SSDs – all web hosting users who are using less than 1 GB of storage space are now located on fast SSDs. This means that they will enjoy much faster read/write speeds and faster website speeds. We are planning to move all cloud hosting accounts to SSDs as well.
  • web accelerators (Memcached, Varnish, Node.js) – our web acceleration tools will help you boost the speed of your website even further.

Optimal Route Selection
As a Tier 1 ISP, the owner of the data center where our servers are co-located, has established extensive public and private peering relationships. Peer points currently include the Pacific Bell NAP and the Palo Alto Internet Exchange. BGP4 is used for optimal route selection and automatic fail over.

Top 7 Reasons WHY You Need a Business Website

Top 7 Reasons You Need a Business Website

Having a website of your own provides your business with invaluable advantages over the traditional advertising channels. There are at least 7 reasons why you should present your business online:

1. Increased customers’ convenience:Searching for businesses and products over the Internet is much easier and quicker than leafing through the Yellow Pages. Anytime a potential or existing customer wants to find out more about your business, they can easily do that, especially if you have an “F&Q” section added. Your customers can be always in touch with you, all they need to know is your website address.2. Greater accessibility to your business profile:Your business profile will be accessible from EVERYWHERE. No other ad channel provides such global coverage. You will not depend any more on restricted presentations based on phone book entries. What is more important, more and more customers nowadays resort to the Internet when searching for products, services and businesses.

3. Greater opportunities for promoting your business portfolio:

People can`t buy your products or services if they don`t know that they actually exist. Through a WEBSITE you can tell your potential audience much more than you could possibly do via any print advertisements, Yellow Pages listings, or TV/radio commercials. There are no limitations with regard to space and time, nationality and residency. You can say as many things as you want, to as many people as YOU wish. And your business representation can be as resourceful as is the Internet.

4. Low-cost efficient advertising:

Practically, what happens is – your website runs a NON-STOP PROMOTION of your business! Your customers are always able to obtain up-to-date and thorough information about your services or products. Instead of having to rely on randomly aired TV or radio commercials, they can simply browse through your website whenever they have time or need to.

5. Around-the-clock availability:A website is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. It will be your hardest-working employee, never getting sick, or taking holiday. And you can always rest assured that your website is there for you – to answer to your customers` questions, or to collect their feedback instead of you.6. It saves time:With a website, prospective customers can learn about you and your business at any time of the day or night without you having to be all the time pre-occupied with the process. The time you would otherwise spend on answering or re-directing of your customers` questions can be now saved and invested in further activities to increase your profits, in other words – in further expansion of your business.

7. It saves money:

You can save a lot of money spent otherwise on print and postage costs for brochures, coupons, flyers, specials, newsletters, and other mailings. Furthermore, while regular renewals of printed materials can be quite expensive and also time consuming, updating information on your website is always handy, fast and most important – amazingly efficient. As we all know, nothing is more valued in a business than optimal productivity for minimal input costs.
