What is a domain name?
A domain name is a company's unique identity on the Internet. All computers, or servers, connected to the Internet are identified by a unique number called an Internet Protocol address (IP address). A typical IP address appears in the form 123.456.789.xxx. The domain naming system assigns unique names to the IP addresses since names are generally easier to remember than numbers. A domain name usually appears in the form yourcompany.com. It can be used as a custom email address, such as firstname.lastname@example.org, or as an address on the World Wide Web, such as www.yourcompany.com. Domain names operate much like phone numbers or street addresses.
How do I register my domain name?
You have two options, register it yourself online or have us register it for you. If you do it yourself online, you will learn about the process, and have access to change any of your details (owner name, address, phone, technical administration details, billing details etc) at an time. You will have to maintain and administer this yourself. If you would like us to handle all of this for you - we offer full service domain name registrations and we handle all of the details for you, including updating your details etc. When we register domains on behalf of clients, we always register them with the client as the domain registrant (this is the domain owner) - if you ever ask someone to register a domain for you, insist on them making you (the owner), the DOMAIN REGISTRANT. This ensures you are the owner of what you paid for!
If you register a domain for me, will I own it?
It is illegal for web companies to register the domains of their clients in their name. Always make sure that the domain is registered in your or your company name. You can check this using a whois lookup domain like whois.net

Will I be able to update my web site content myself?
Yes, this is possible but we need to program the site in a different way for this feature. You may try the demo and check the abilities of a Content Management System. Other sections of the site may also come with management tools - and if you need to update almost any portion of the site, we can built it with this in mind - we even have a specially written tool for uploading files, pictures etc, editing your site text - but if you haven't requested this feature, we don't built it in, as it takes a little longer and increases the cost of your site - but you save a lot of time making your own changes.
What do you use for a Content Management System?
We normally use PHP/MySQL for Content Management Systems. More details can be found on the demo page.

Normally, you do. The reason being that we probably don't know your business like you do. If you are really too busy to write and collate your content, we can provide someone to handle this for you. Of course, we need to know this at the time of consultation, and we will bill this separately from the design/programming of your site.
