Quick Start Package
Instead of adopting a cheap but inflexible template, or learning just enough Web skills to be dangerous, let us implement your site quickly and cooperatively, so that you can apply your time to your content. Our approach is to emphasize functionality and rock-solid navigation within your site, followed by customization and refinement of appearance.
Your website can be on line in a few minutes using your images and text with our help. Includes automated navigation, home page with optional automated content previews from other pages, newsletter (blog), image gallery, FAQ, forms manager and more; up to ten additional pages with flexible design; one year on line prepaid; many extras available. Generous storage and bandwidth. Add and maintain content easily with our content management tools.
In short, we manage technology, while you manage content. (For example, the layout of this page is based on up-to-date "grid" technology using automated positioning of components alone, in groupings and/or columns. The "responsive" page layout adapts to most screens of differing width.)
