Welcome to htmlfox
Building a Better Web, One Pixel at a Time ℠
We are passionate about websites. From design to search engine optimization (SEO). Websites come in all shapes and sizes. They have particular functions from static informational websites to dynamic e-commerce websites. Cost can vary widely as well. HTMLfox strives to offer a quality service with a competitive price. Although, some clients needs may be very specific which can cause the cost drivers to increase.
What do I need?
Static – Dynamic – eCommerce ? What are the differences?
Can you get by with just a static informational website which would include relevant content along with photos and graphics? If your business offers a service you may be able to go with the static website. However if your company sells a product and you wish to sell that product through the internet then you would need an ecommerce website. Typically you can have a static website with a robust shopping cart attached to meet the needs of selling products on the internet. Then there are dynamic websites that have logins, registrations, databases and so on. It can get confusing and complicated. We can help sort all this out. We ask the tough questions and help you get what you need for your type of business or venture.
Once you have decided on the type of website that suites your needs, where will you host it? Hosting? What’s that? Hosting is the heavy duty computer that serves your website to the masses on the internet. It can handle the heavy demands placed on it by hundreds and thousands of people clicking through your website all at the same time. A regular computer may not be able to handle such a demand but a “Server” which “Hosts” your website can. There are several types of servers. There are “dedicated” and there are ‘shared”. You can just about tell which one would be best just by their names. yes, dedicated is the better choice. We can explain all this when you are ready for that decision.
Where Does This End?
Well there is no end! That’s the honest truth. It seems that a website is never finished. It is very flexible, pliable and editable. If you are new to this I am sure this is a bit overwhelming. Take a deep breathe and relax, we are here to help you every step of the way. Yes it is true, a website is never truely finished. But that’s the beauty of websites. You can edit them any time, ad pages, change prices, phone numbers, people and so on. Try changing your prices on 10,000 brochures. As you may know, once you print your brochures, price lists, business cards etc. you have to live with it till they are gone or pitch them and start all over if there is a significant change to be made. This is very costly. With a website edits are usually easy and quick. Thus, it is never ending, but that’s a good thing compared to starting all over every time a change needs to be made as in a printed piece.
