And you can change the look of your web site at any time.
Service includes: Stock photography, graphic design, content formatting, applying styles, hyperlinks, embedding any media files, photo scanning, and more. Photo editing and touch–ups of client–supplied images is extra.
- Content Development
Our editors help with the creation, assembly, and organization of your content to develop a professional, comprehensive, user–friendly web site. At any time, you can add or remove text, images, or even whole pages while maintaining a consistent, well–organized, and professional–looking web site.
Service includes: Unlimited content, technical writing, user interface, proofreading, editing, content organization, site navigation, page layout, and consulting.
- Flat–fee Updates
We look after all updates to your web site and related services. The work we do to complete updates is covered by the management fee—only a flat per–request, per–page handling fee is charged to cover the administration of each request. Updates are completed quickly and efficiently. Updates of any type (text, images, forms, links, etc.) are all priced the same, regardless of size, type, or the time taken to complete. Also, see below for Web Site Self–updates.

Service includes: Broken link checking, site monitoring, browser compatibility testing, code validation, response times, form functionality, uptime, hardware and software upgrades.

Service includes: Space and bandwidth as needed, redundant servers, automatic failover, and nightly backups.
