Affordable Quality Web Page Design for You


Here you will find information you require when thinkng about getting a website.

 

When you are thinking of getting a web site, there are many things that one must take into account. These range from who will be your web host, your logo, page layout, which colours you would like on each page, do you want a guestbook, a feedback form, is the information that will appear copyright protected.

 

Hosting service.

The are many companies out there that can provide you with this type of service. Do not go to the first one you find and sign a contract with them. Nor choose one because your buddy says so. Shop arround, go to their web site, compare prices. Do not just look at local providers, consider the ones that are overseas.

 

Thinks to look at when comparing are :

1) Price;

2) Number of email addresses & costs of adding or removing addresses;

3) Is PHP and MySQL supported and what version;

4) Amount of storage provided;

5) Webmail client available;

6) Is phone support available and the cost;

7) Is there online and/or email support;

8) Are backups done.

This is but to name a few.

 

We at Netmania have done this for you, and are happy to recommend a supplier. You are then free to go with the recommended supplier or to go with one of your own choice.

 

Copyright.

Copyright is part of a group of intellectual property rights, which provide legal protection to creators of works of the mind. Copyright in South Africa is governed by the Copyright Act No. 98 of 1978, as amended and the Regulations made in terms thereof. On the copyright page I cover most of the issues relating to South African copyright law. Yet an important fact to remember is that being on the internet you are part of a global society and that one must also consider international copyright laws. These laws are controlled by the Berne Convention, which is an international agreement on copyright by which member countries grant each other copyright protection. As of September 2008, there are 164 countries that are members of the Berne Convention.

Colours.

When choosing colors for your web page, one should as far as possible try to remain within the set of browser safe colors. This is a set of 216 colors that will display exactly the same on every computer and in every browser. These colors are refered to as web-safe colors or browser-safe colors.
