Web Management Charlotte

Web Management Charlotte

We offer ongoing management of your Charlotte Website.

To have a successful website, you need 4 basic things:

  1. Domain name. This is the address of your web site. For example, our domain name is charlottewebdevelopment.com. You can register domain names for your website with thousands of providers. Go Daddy, Network Solutions, and Yahoo are some of the best. I prefer Network Solutions.
  2. Hosting. This is a place to keep your website. Again, there are thousands of providers with their specific benefits and detractions. The same companies listed above for registering domain names can help you host your website. Go Daddy, Network Solutions, and Yahoo are some of the best. Again, I prefer Network Solutions.
  3. Content. Your website needs to have a reason for people to visit it. Whether it be an application, news, or information, the best way to make your website successful is to have substance.
  4. Audience Contact. Success on the internet is based upon momentum. A site must be dynamic and interactive enough to cater to your audience’s needs so they keep coming back.

Creating a website is not rocket science. It is fairly easy to begin with an entry-level website package advertised in many places. The details can get tricky though.

What name should you chose? Does it matter? Your domain name has a suffix. It’s the three characters that come after the ‘dot’. For example, .com, .edu, .org, .biz, .gov and many more. There are also other variations in your URL or Uniform Resource Locator. Why do some websites have https:// instead of htpp:// at the front of their URL? That is a security issue. How secure does your website need to be? Do you need subdomains (ex. subdomain.yoursite.com)?

Aside from naming issues, there is the task of hosting. Not all host providers are created equal. Many different pricing schemes exist. Which one is best for your site? Do you need a Windows or a Unix based server? What kind of database configuration is best suited for your needs MySQL, MS SQL, Access, Oracle? What kind of dynamic page support is offered? PHP, JSP, ASP, CGI? What do all these acromyns mean anyhow? How does this affect my business?

Charlotte Web Development can answer all of these questions and more. We are perfectly happy to take on the tasks of consulting you to these answers or do it entirely for you. We can manage setting up your various accounts and make certain that it is done the right way the first time.

To maximise your website’s success, you need on-going management. Charlotte Web Development can help. In addition to gettin you all set up, we can put in fresh content, market the site and keep it up-to-date. Charlotte Web Development can help you send out your newsletter, manage your web site competition and keep your site entertaining and informative.

Unfortunately, the old saw from Field of Dreams “Build it and they will come” doesn’t actually work for web sites. Design a website so it’s fast loading, entertaining and informative, tell everyone about it, optimize it for the search engines and then they will come. Now that works!
