1. How much does a web site cost?
A web site can vary in price from a little to a lot, depending on what you want.
You can have a web site for as little as $50, but it would contain little more than
what you would find on a business card. Since a web site is usually established
as a source of information, you probably will want to put more on it than just your
name, address and phone number. There are many factors to consider for a web
site, and each factor, too, can vary in price. For instance, are you looking for
a free host, or do you want a host that can provide you with an ad-free site, form,
counter, survey or other capabilities, etc.? The more "bells and whistles" you
need from a host, the more the host is going to cost.
2. Why do I need a web site?
You have a business. You need customers to keep that business going.

3. Why do I need more than one page for a web site?
You can put all your information on one web page, but the more info. you have,
the larger that page becomes. The larger the page, the longer it takes to
download. The longer it takes to download, the bigger the chances are of your
"potential" viewer/customer becoming bored with waiting to see what's on your
page and will go on to the next site instead.
4. What do I need to get my web site started?
First, you need to know what kind of web site you want. What is your
budget? What message do you want to convey to your viewers? You don't
necessarily need to know everything that will go on your web site - your web
master should be able to help you with that. Next you will need a host, and
possibly a domain name. These things, too, your web master should be able to
help you with. If you are a "do-it-yourself" kind of person, you may want to
learn how to build your own web site. H&H Press offers tuturoing courses by
phone or in the convenience of your own home. E-mail H&H Press at
firstname.lastname@example.org or call at 570-376-3361 to learn more.
5. What is a host?
A host is a company that has the equipment to house your web files so that your
web site is visible on the world wide web.
6. What is an URL?
This is the address that viewers type into their computer to see your web site.
A URL may be a domain name (yourname.com), or it may be a sub-name of a domain
(yourname.somename.com). The "somename.com" part of the URL
is the domain name of the website that your webpages are residing with.
7. What is a domain name?
This is a primary name for a web site that is usually created to be easy to
remember. For instance, handhpress.com is the domain name for H&H Press.
8. How do I get a domain name?
A domain name can be purchased through a Domain Registrar service.
Prices for domain names vary, just as prices for hosts vary. Before
signing with a Domain Registrar service, be sure to price shop and
compare. Your web master should be able to help you find the right
Domain Registrar for your needs. Hosts, too, may be able to recommend
a Domain Registrar. Many Hosts will set up your domain name for you,
either as part of their hosting package, or for an extra fee.
9. What about Search Engines?
Many people who "surf the web" rely on Search Engines to guide them
to sites that are relevant to what they are looking for. Web sites must
be listed with Search Engines before they can appear on the Search
Engine's directory. Some Search Engines charge to list a web site,
some will list a web site for free. Each Search Engine has its own rules
on how it lists and ranks a web site. While many hosts do not include
Search Engine registration as part of their hosting packages,
H&H Press DOES! We offer web hosting packages that will register your
web site on 30 top Search Engines. We also offer Search Engine
registration as a separate service for those who prefer to use
alternative hosts, but need to get their web sites listed with Search
10. Do you have any final advice concerning web pages?
Always keep in mind that more expensive is not always better. There
are many programs, etc. available on the internet that are either
free or very inexpensive which work equally as well, if not better,
than the "big name brands" out there. At H&H Press, we keep in mind
the client's budget, as well as the design of the web site to present
the most effective, cost-efficient design possible.
