What services do you offer?
Domain registration, hosting, website design, and website maintenance. For more information about these services please visit the services page.
What is a domain name and why do I need to register one?
A domain name is the website address, or URL, that people type into their browser to reach your website. For example, our domain name is netbuzzla.com. In order to host your own website, you will need to select and register a domain name for a specified period of time. At the end of that time period, you will have the option of renewing the name. If you let your domain expire, your visitors will no longer be able to reach your website. To select and register a domain name, you may use the domain registration tool (will open in separate window).
What is web hosting?
Web hosting is a service that provides storage place for your website. It’s like renting storage for your website files.
So I need a domain name and web hosting… what else do I need to create a website?
Once you have a domain name (URL) and web host (a place to store your files), you will need to build the files that create your website. There are many different ways to do this. You can create your website from scratch using HTML and CSS, you can use tools and templates, or you can use a content management systems like WordPress or Joomla, to name a few. At NetBuzz, I use WordPress along with the Genesis Framework to build websites. These tools allow me to create unique websites that are based on a reliable framework.
What themes do you offer?
I use the Genesis Framework and StudioPress themes with the WordPress content management system. This allows you to easily update your website and keep your content fresh. You can see samples of the available themes here.
May I see samples of your work?
Absolutely! Examples of my work can be found on the portfolio page.
Can I just purchase a domain name or hosting a la carte?
Of course! I offer domain registration and website hosting a la carte in addition to a variety of other services.
How long will it take for my website to be up and running?
During business hours (8am – 5pm M-F PST) your domain name should be active within 2 hours, sometimes as quickly as 15 minutes. Weekend days may take longer but I can usually have you up and running very quickly. The time it takes to design your website depends on a number of factors – the number of pages on your site, the number of images, whether or not you need any special features installed, complexity, etc. After I have an idea of what you’d like your website to look like, I can provide you with a time estimate.
Do you offer support after the initial setup?
Yes, we offer all levels of support. My specialty is helping people navigate their way through creating their very first website. No question or level of support is too small. Browse the list of support and all-inclusive packages for a program that will meet your needs.
Can I upload my own files to my website?
Yes, all hosting plans include FTP access.
Will you help me install a calendar, photo gallery, shopping cart, or other plugins?
Yes, as part of the customization process we can install and configure plugins for your website.
I’m completely lost, where should I begin?
Building a website can be confusing – domain registration, web hosting, themes, SEO – there is a lot to navigate. Send me a note with your questions and what you have in mind for your website and I’ll be happy to help you.
