8 steps to get your business online!
First, let's get you signed up. Please read our Sign-Up Form
, and ask any questions you may have about our service to make sure you understand our offering.
Print the form, sign it,
and send it along with your deposit to the address on the form.
2Second, let's sort out your Domain Name:
The next step is to either help you choose and register a domain name (address) for your web site or, if you already have a domain registered, to prepare to transfer it over to Back2Front. *Optional
If you don't have a domain name yet, we can check to see what is available, and suggest alternatives. We can then handle the entire registration process for you.
If you have already registered a domain name, then we will ask for the registrar access information that you received when you registered the domain in order for us to proceed with a transfer. If you are missing this information, we can help you to retrieve it.

and how we manage them.
3Your Development Team:
After the above formalities are dealt with, you will have a conversation with your project manager, about your needs and what materials you may already have, and who else on our team will be assigned to the project. If you are moving an existing web site to our service—this part will be quicker since only what is missing or out-dated will need to be addressed.
If you do not already have a web site, we will publish a temporary page with your contact information (verified by you) within a few days of receiving your sign-up form and deposit. If you are moving a site to our service, please see the next page in this section Moving to Us

If you already have a brand identity, then your web site should reflect this. We can use any materials you already have: brochure, ad, flyer, business card, logo, letterhead, photos, etc.
If you do not already have a brand identity, or would like a new one, then we can design a look for your web site from scratch. One of the best ways to express your preferences for a new look is to send us the addresses of other web sites you like and tell us what you like about them.

We will look for you to provide descriptive materials for the content of your web site. You can provide us with ready-to-go text, or just point form notes. Our writers, editors, and programmers will turn your instructions and notes into web-friendly, organized, and functional content.
6Building the Site:
During the construction process, we will send you a private link to your new web site so that you can review it, and provide us with feedback. The general public does not see this private development site. If you have an existing web site, it will not be affected so you will never have a web site that is broken or "under construction".
This is an iterative process that involves your input and feedback, you can be as involved as much, or as little, as you wish. Update handling fees apply when you ask for changes to be made to the content or instructions you have already provided to us. The more organized, detailed and complete the materials you provide to us the fewer update handling fees you are likely to incur, and the quicker the build will go.
If you are too busy or unable to provide complete and polished materials then we are happy to do the work for you. This service does not cost more, only change requests incur handling fees.
Using a private link, you can review the pages as they are developed and give us feedback. When each page is ready to go live, we publish it!

7Go Live—any time you say go!
You do not need to get it all done at once! You can make changes or additions to your web site at any time before or after launch. The cost will be the same regardless of launch date. We keep working until you are happy, there are no time limits but update fees may apply. We recommend that you go live with each new page as soon as it is completed. The sooner your web site is public the sooner you can benefit from our ongoing web site management service!
