Your Own Domain
More time and money has been wasted on creating corporate web pages in the past decade than on nearly any other activity. And yet, everyone knows that companies need web pages to let people know they are serious about business. A good web page can do far more than that, but the online equivalent of a one-page flyer is pretty much the minimum acceptable web page these days for small businesses.
Additionally, your company looks more professional if your email addresses are all part of a company domain (firstname.lastname@example.org) rather than a bunch of disconnected accounts at AOL, MSN, Earthlink and the like. Besides, email@example.com is far easier to remember than firstname.lastname@example.org
We maintain our own web and mail server to meet the needs of our customers. We can set up email accounts in about 15 minutes and make changes to web pages for you quickly. For customers who have the need, we can let you be the administrator for your own mail domain so you can add, delete, change passwords and the like for all the accounts on your company's domain. And, of course, we design web pages as well. Visit VCC's Design Studio for our philosophy and some samples of work.
There are other advantages of having your own domain. Have you had to notify all your customers recently that your email address has changed because your huge ISP was swallowed up by an even larger one? Did you have to reprint your business cards and stationary? If you have your own domain, you own it. If something happens to your ISP, or you just get mad at him, you can transfer your domain to another provider and be up and running overnight. Your customers will never know. Your email addresses won't change, your web page will look the same and you won't have to reprint anything. Any time you wish, you can move your domain to any one of thousands of providers.
VCC can help you select a reasonable domain name, register it, create email accounts and design and set up a web page for about the same cost as printing a 3-page foldout brochure. If you already have a web page, but it hasn't been updated in ages, we can give it a face lift or replace it altogether.
