Web Services Offered

David offers a range of web design, hosting and support options. As he works from home (in the beautiful Southern Highlands of NSW) his overheads are lower and so are his design fees.

  • This package includes the design and upload of a single page web site with a banner, information, an email link and up to 4 graphic images.
  • It provides a web presence to enable clients to find you without the expense of a more involved web site. Perhaps later a more involved site would be needed if response warrants it.
  • Usable graphics can be provided in digital form or as originals to be scanned. These include letterhead artwork, company logo, photographs, sketches, and diagrams.
  • The design includes submitting the web site to the major search engines, and includes code to help other search engines find it.
  • If you have a preferred colour scheme it would be incorporated into the design.
  • A spam-proof email link can be included to enable potential clients to contact you.
  • The web site can be hosted with your own internet provider or by contract with me (see Hosting Options).
  • This package allows for a more detailed presentation allowing a range of menu options and their associated pages. Pricing depends on the number of pages and their complexity.
  • It provides a substantial web presence to enable clients to find what you do in detail.
  • Items commonly included are maps; directions; forms for bookings, quotes or information requests; downloadable brochures, Word or PDF files.
  • Usable graphics can be provided in digital form or as originals to be scanned. These include letterhead artwork, company logo, photographs, sketches, and diagrams.
  • The design includes submitting the website to the major search engines, and includes code to help other search engines find it.
  • Meta-data that helps focus the website in the major search engines is included.
  • Website security has increasingly become a serious issue so it is recommended that your site has a security certificate. This can be purchased for your website. It should be noted that Google shows the site as unsafe unless it is secured.
  • If you have a preferred colour scheme or company style it can be incorporated into the design.
  • A spam-proof email link can be included to enable potential clients to contact you.
  • Choosing the most appropriate domain name depends on the nature of the web site. Australian domain names are quite closely controlled so only registered business can apply for a .com.au domain name that is clearly related to the registered name and similarly only incorporated organisations can apply for org.au.
  • There is a range of domain types. Popular ones include: .com .net .org .id .wiki .club
  • Domain names are purchased on a yearly or two-yearly basis. Securing your domain name is an upfront cost which varies from type to type.
  • It is very important to not let the domain lapse. There are leeches who will register it if it lapses and then point it to offensive pornography. You can only salvage your site by paying the ransom they demand.
  • You can test if a domain name is available and continue on to purchase online or I can handle this for you.
  • Re-registration is then managed by yourself if you have registered the domain name (you will receive timely warnings) or again I can handle it.
  • Web hosting is offered in three packages with features appropriate to your needs. Hosting is on servers based in Australia which reduces upload and download times and cuts down unnecessary internet traffic.
  • The packages are Kareela Basic, Kareela Medium, and Kareela Full. They differ in the allocated storage space, and data transfer allowance.
  • Kareela Basic: Storage 1GB, Bandwidth 1GB, FTP, Email x5, SQL x1, cPanel
  • Kareela Medium: Storage 0.25GB, Bandwidth 1GB, FTP, Email x3, SQL x1, cPanel
  • Kareela Full: Storage 2GB, Bandwidth 2GB, FTP, Email x5, SQL x2, cPanel
  • An customised package can be created with required features, storage space and data transfer allowance according to needs.
  • Email for current pricing.
  • It is important to avoid a stale website, particularly if you have a proportion of returning clients. Advertise new deals/ specials/ offers by changing your pages regularly.
  • Checking your websites ranking with major search engines, in particular Google, and obtaining better rankings.
  • Established web sites can be improved/ updated/ maintained. Pricing depends on the estimated time involved.
