Univ.-Doz. Dr. Michael Ramek, Laimburggasse 26, 8010 Graz,
You want to get a home page:
That's very reasonable - the internet has become a remarkable source
of information. In fact, for many it is the prime source of information.
With a home page of your own, you can present your
company, your event, or your offer to a literally world wide audience.
you can update your presentation any time. Given the proper keywords,
search engines will bring in potential interests from around the globe.
What do you need and whom do you need?
There are basically two choices: use one of the many free space offers
or rent a web space.
Free space offers
are in many cases limited to 5 or 10 megabytes, but
that is oftentimes sufficient. The risk with these offers is that
the policy of the provider may change and all of a sudden you can find yourself in
a situation, where you can no longer access your files.
As a consequence, outdated information may remain
on-line and you are left with no way of changing that.
Web space for hire, which is available from a number of
is much safer in that respect, as you will have
a contract and a serious business relationship. Costs for rented
web space depend on the size and start at around
80 per year.
If you wish him to do so,
your web designer will assist you and eventually
do all necessary steps for you.
This one has to come from you - nobody else knows better why your company,
your event, or whatever you want to promote is better than the competition,
how much things cost, what kind of developments will come up, and so on.
Content is the key to a successful web site, unless you want to
register a domain name with the only purpose of keeping the name off the
market for future use or to link e-mail addresses to that domain.
Your web designer has the word here in various aspects:
he or she will bring your content into
machine readable form, will include and optimize any graphics,
will take care of search engine requirements,
will warn you about mistakes, and answer any further
questions related to your web appearance.
