About Our Web Designs
All of our pages are hand-coded using a text editor. We prefer this method to any
of the "commercial" web page development programs because it gives us full
flexibility to design pages without limits. Most of our pages are written in
We also write PHP programs for specialized purposes when needed.
Our flexible web page design allows us to incorporate and customize many of the
scripts publically available over the internet. These scripts can often give a
website powerful fuctionality at a very low cost. Some of our favorite scripts
- pLog - a weblog program that makes
it very easy to provide upt-to-date content on your website
- phpBB - a forum (bulletin board) program that allows visitors
to your site to leave messages in a public forum.
- cpCommerce - a powerful web commerce
script that allows a lot of custom design.
Most of the scripts that we use require some minimum features to be available from
your web host. Typically, it requires that the host use Apache as the webserver (most
good hosting companies -- and even most bad hosting companies) do). Also, they will
typically require PHP and MySQL to be installed on the host. Again, these are
usually avaialable, but some low-costs hosts may not offer these for their low-
end hosting packages. In any case, we will be happy to work with you to determine
what you need from your host. Our goal is to always provide the least expensive
solution that will meet your requirements.
We provide custom graphic designs to suit the needs of your site. The price of the
custom graphics is included in the web design cost. In fact, for many sites the
majority of the work we do is the design of the custom graphics. Of course, if you
have your own graphics already, we will happily use them in your site design.
Our prices depend upon your specific needs. The simplest family/personal website with
just 1 to 5 pages and no custom scripting can be set up for $500. Prices go up from
there to $2000 for the set up a basic eCommerce website. Most of our other business
options and more-sophisticated family/personal sites are priced somewhere in between.
