The length of time to complete your Web site depends on your
needs. A Web site may be simple or quite complex. It may
take a few days to complete your entire Web site if you
choose to include a logo, a few pictures, and basic information
your company. If you are wanting to include numerous pictures
and/or descriptions of many products, custom graphics, complex
designs, a searchable database, a company directory, price
lists, etc., your Web site will take additional hours to
and complete. We generally suggest allowing a month to complete a project from start to finish; however, it may certainly not take that long.
We recommend that you
start by searching for some websites for businesses similar to yours.

look at some of your competitors. You can be sure that each
of your competitors has spent numerous hours
planning the company site, so analyzing these sites
and utilizing the best concepts will certainly be to your
benefit. You cannot copy another company's
Web site, but getting a few ideas about what you like or dislike from five or ten well-designed

additional name recognition and advertising for your business.
With your own domain
name, you always have the option to move to a new Web hosting
service if necessary, and your Web site and e-mail address
will remain the same. In fact, Eager Web Page Design has
this Web site several times, yet we are still located
on the Web at "http://www.eagerweb.com" and
our e-mail addresses have not changed. You may easily check
the availability or purchase a domain name at Network Solutions. If we will be creating a website for your business, we can register the domain name and set the DNS information for you.

Yes, there is a feature included with our
Web hosting packages that allows you to do this. We can set
up an e-mail "alias" at your domain name, such as
"managers@[yourdomain.com]". This e-mail address will allow copies of all e-mail
to be automatically forwarded to one or more e-mail addresses (your board/managers).
When you send an e-mail message in which
you want copies sent to your board of directors or management,
you simply carbon copy or blind carbon copy your outgoing
e-mail to the new alias described above. To have copies
of the recipient's response sent to everyone on your list,
you simply enter your new e-mail alias (as described above) in the "Reply-To" section
of your outgoing e-mail.
