What is a website and what is this internet thing that everybody is ``connected`` to?

The internet is most simply a vast web of interconnected information. In very, very basic terms information, images, audio, video and other mediums on every topic that is conceived by man is “virtually” stored in specific computer languages, known as coding, on big computer hard drives known as servers.

By directing an internet browser like the one you are on now to a specific index within the World Wide Web you are able to graphically interpret information on every topic from surfing to outdoor tomato farms and much more in all directions. The coding specifics of the web are much more complicated than can be explained in five sentences, but it is important to know what you are getting into.

Why do I need a website?

Plain and simply, the internet is the strongest and most efficient medium currently available for a small business, organization, cause or other entity to reach direct customers, supporters, and fans of your idea, product or service. The internet allows you as a business to grow from the ground up, from the cultivation of local support to the ability to reach customers across the globe with an accurate depiction of why they should use your business to fulfill their needs.

In the past people used the Yellow Pages to contact businesses for specific services and products. In today’s world, a website is a must for any small business to connect to potential, existing and current clients and customers.

How long can I expect my website build to take?

The time that it take to build a custom web presence for your business is dependent on the scale and scope of your online goals and objectives. Respectfully, if a project has a basic design, modest features and little to no SEO & Online Marketing, it will take considerably less time to develop than a project with 50 pages, custom e-commerce functionality and advanced SEO & Marketing campaigns.

All of our projects are developed under completely custom design proposals. Let us customize an online plan to exceed your online expectations today.

Why do I need a Blog?

In addition, a Blog does a great job of bringing your site to life, while connecting you to your web page in order to set your business’ best foot forward.

In recent years, changes to SEO algorithms has placed higher and higher importance on the need for fresh content on small business web presences. A blog allows you and your business to publish recent updates that are happening on a regular basis at your company. This fresh content not only serves to keep your message up-to-date, but also provides new and exciting content that search engines will index to further increase your business’ online reach and engagement.

What's so special about Social Networking?

In recent years social networking (sites like Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter) have sparked a social revolution of inter-connectedness. For small businesses, these sites provide a unique opportunity to reach a broad segment of your possible customers.

What's a domain name? And why do I need one?

A website’s domain name is its unique web location. Sort of like your website’s address. The domain is usually “yourbusiness.com” but could be anything imaginable that is not already owned by another user on the net. In order to have your website code active online so you can have visitors to your website, you must purchase a domain address. The domain gives you access to place your information at the specified address so that internet users can view your web presence. Domain names are fairly cheap but must be renewed annually to keep your site live at its specific address. Click here to learn more about Domain Services.

Domain registration is submit to the public “Who-is” database for Domain Registration.

What about hosting? Is it necessary for me to have?

Yes hosting is imperative for any website. Hosting stores your web site information on a server that is set-up to transmit and hold information for web-pages on the internet. In very simple terms it is the rent that you as a website must pay the internet for the space that your site holds. Without hosting, your website would be a collection of source code without anything to connect to. At Dbweb, we provide Hosting Services for our clients. Dbweb can help with your hosting or we will happily give you the code for your website that you can use elsewhere.
