Frequently Asked Questions


Why do I need a website?

 There are many answers to that question. One reason is that a website can be a good way for your customers to find you (Just like when customers use the Yellow Pages). Another reason is that a good website will help your customers learn all about your products and services. Websites make great electronic brochures and can answer the same questions that customers ask again and again. You are able to put a lot of information and photos into your website - far more than in newspaper advertisements for instance. Finally a website continues to work long after you quit for the day. A website can continue taking orders or answering questions 24/7.


Can I afford a website?

Compared to advertising in other media, a website can be very cost effective. After the initial set up of your website your monthly costs can be as little as $20/month and the number of potential viewers can be very high.


What do I have to do to get started?

Creating a web presence can be broken down into four basic steps and we can help every step of the way. Step one is to decide what domain name you want to use and determine if that name is available. The second step is to gather up all the materials you will need to create the website. Materials that you will need include written text to describe your company, products or services, your company logo, pictures and any graphics you would like to use. If you need help with any of these materials we can write text, design logos and take pictures for you at an additional charge. Step three is to find a hosting company so that your website will be available for viewers to see on-line. Nisbet Business Services provides effective hosting services at reasonable rates. Finally, you will need to make it easy for people to find your new website. We can discuss various ways that you can use to get your website noticed.


How many e-mail accounts can I have with my new account?

You can have one email account with any hosted domain name at no additional charge. You can have as many additional e-mail accounts that are associated with your hosted domain name as needed for an additional charge.


What If I want to make changes to my website but I don't want to do it myself?

Nisbet Business Services has various maintenance programs that can keep your website fresh and up-to-date.


Once I set up my website account with Nisbet Business Services can I make changes to my website myself?

Yes, you may have complete access to your website and can make all of the changes you like.


Who owns my domain name and any website changes I have paid for?

You will retain ownership of your domain name (assuming renewal fees are kept current with the domain name registrar) and you are free to move it to other hosting options if you wish. Likewise, you retain ownership of your website and/or any changes to it that you have paid for.
