Basics - Web Site Development
To get your business on the web, you need the
Site Promotion / Search Engine Optimization
A domain name or URL is the address where your web site will
be located on the web. (For example, www.sunfishdesign.com
is Sunfish Design's domain name, URL AND web site address.)
You can select any available domain name and choose from a
variety of extensions, including .com, .net, .org, etc. The selection of a domain name is a major consideration.
While a good domain for your web site name won't guarantee
success, it can have a positive (or negative) impact on almost
every aspect of online business. A "good" web site
domain is one that is easy to remember and minimizes confusion.
If you are acquiring a name for your web site that has the
potential to cause confusion (non-hyphenated and hyphenated
variations, or words that are phonetically similar and commonly
misspelled), we recommend that you obtain the most logical
version. Sunfish Design provides the service of domain
name consulting and registration with all our web
site design packages.
Web Site Hosting
To be accessible on the web, you need web space on a server.
Your site needs a place for the information to be stored -
just like the hard disk of your computer. The service of providing
that space is called hosting and the company that
provides web hosting services (including
storage and connectivity) is called a web host. The most important factors to consider when
searching for a web host and a web hosting plan are reliability
and support. Sunfish Design offers reliable hosting at extremely
competitive rates. Web site hosting services are available
separately or as part of our complete web packages.
This one is somewhat obvious. The information that is viewable
from your domain name - by anyone with an Internet connection
- is your web site. Most web sites are created by a web developer
who uses HTML (hypertext markup language) coding/programming
and a variety of other software packages. Your web site should
be designed as an accurate extension of your business, and
should be intuitive, informative, visual and easy for visitors
Sunfish Design provides stylish web
site design and development services with all features
and great functionality.
Site Promotion / Search
Search engine optimization helps consumers find your web site.
With tens of millions of web sites now live, search engines
generate results via keywords assigned to each site, among
other various aspects of the site. Our search
engine promotion services include working with you to
determine your target market and the best keywords for your
business, then optimize the pages of your site to ensure the
search engine will include your site in its results pages.
After the keywords are assigned, we hand-submit your site
to all the major search engines.

"I had been through 2 web design companies before coming to Linda at Sunfish Design. She instantly understood what I was looking for, who my audience was and the image and professionalism I wanted in the site. I couldn't be happier, and it's been great for my business."
