i Create Websites

I create websites for businesses, individuals, and non-profit organizations.

Make your site stand out with a beautiful display and keep visitors engaged by updating your website regularly with compelling content organized in an intuitive, creative way.

A new “responsive” website makes your site look great on any device like a cell phone, iPad/tablet, computer and a big screen TV. A content management system allows you to update your website regularly using a computer, iPad/tablet, or even a cell phone. Add content to your website through email or your Facebook page – really, that’s now possible.

I created i-C web to help small businesses and individuals upgrade to “responsive” websites: Websites that are mobile-friendly and display well on all devices.

This is getting more and more critical, especially for business. iPads, tables, and mobile phones are gaining on traditional computers for web browsing and these devices are becoming the norm, not the exception. So much so that search engine giant Google has decided to rank mobile-friendly websites higher in its search results.

Take Advantage of “Mobilegeddon”

LOS ANGELES (6:46 p.m. EDT April 21, 2015) — If your website traffic plummets suddenly Tuesday, you can blame it on “Mobilegeddon.”

Google is doing this because it wants consumers to “find content that’s not only relevant and timely, but also easy to read and interact with on smaller mobile screens,”USA Today

Web Hosting

Hosting is a term for putting your website on the internet for all to see.

A web hosting service is a type of Internet hosting service that allows individuals and organizations to make their website accessible via the World Wide Web. Web hosts are companies that provide space on a server owned or leased for use by clients, as well as providing Internet connectivity, typically in a data center.Wikipedia

I have been through many hosting companies over the years and learned the hard way the limitations of inexpensive hosting. “Cheap” hosting may be fine for your website, but there are drawbacks. All the new content management systems use a database and on shared hosting plans this means you share a MYSQL database program too. Sometimes with a great many sites, who knows, it’s up to the hosting provider to decide. Most cheap web hosts do not offer regular website backups with their hosting plans. Many people don’t realize if there’s a problem they could lose their content.

I have what is called a VPS, which means my hosting provider gives me a certain amount of cloud server resources exclusive to me and no one else can use them, even if I am not using them. I have gone to the technical trouble to schedule nightly backups of my server “off-site” so if something does happen, I have a copy of everything on another server, on a completely different host.

I have my email addresses on a completely different service so they are independent from the websites. If your website does go down, your email does not go with it.

I provide Google Webmaster Tools and Google Analytics to help with SEO, monitor your website for malware, and track your site visitors. If you have a problem, you talk to me and I take care of it for you.

I charge $20 a month for hosting.
