I have a friend who has had some experience with FrontPage. Can she maintain my site? ... Yep, we supply you with access codes to your account so you can control who has the right to maintain your site for you. You'll have to register that person with us.
Can I hire your personnel to put up the first page or two until I get the hang of this? ... Sure, give us a call. Our time is billed on an hourly basis. You pay only for the time you use.
I want an inexpensive site but I don't want to mess with design and maintenance myself. What are your fees for designing my site and maintaining it? ... Since we bill our time by the hour, your cost will be detemined by how much time it takes to do whatever it is you need done. Generally though, for a modest 5 or 6 page site with 2 or 3 images per page (you supply the photos, slides, etc.) and a custom designed response form, it should cost $500 or less for the initial design ... even less if it is smaller and you eliminate the special form.
I want to use Cold Fusion on my site because of its flexibility with databases. Can I do that? ... Yes, but not with a DirtCheapSpace.com site. You'll need our more advanced Corporate Site Plan .. give us a call, we'll discuss the advantages and pricing differences.
Do you have electronic commerce options available that I can add to my DirtCheapSpace.com site? ... Yes, there are several options available .. you'll need to call us to work out the details. Costs can vary widely.
