There are Five Important Components To Consider When Developing A Strategy For A Successful Web Presence:

Web Site Design:  The Web Advantage can build you an outstanding site which is aesthetically pleasing, functional, interactive, provides value, is easy to navigate, and loads quickly. Your site should be "fresh", so that visitors are compelled to BookMark it and return often to find new and updated content. Images and graphical elements should be integrated to be appealing to the viewer and optimized for fast browser downloading.

Currently we offer three different types of packages;

All the above Sites include Company logo and a set of navigation buttons.

Domain Name: Every site on the Internet must have an address. As the use of the Internet grows, addressing and how people find you becomes one of the critical choices a Company or Individual must make. A Domain name is a key part of your address.

The Web Advantage is an example of a Domain Name. In this example "www.the webadvantage.com" is a second-level Domain name, and is registered with InterNIC, the Domain Registry. The ".com" is a top-level-Domain name and usually describes the purpose or the organization of the entity that owns the second level Domain name. A Domain name is also an important part of an email address. When used for an email address, the Domain name follows the @ sign and must consist of a top-level and second-level Domain name.

Once you own a Domain name, you can provide all Internet services including personal or business Web Sites, E-mail, FTP, dial-up & Telnet using that Domain name or address.

Other people buy Domain names for investment purposes. Domain names are like real estate. Once you secure a Domain name no one else can use it without your permission. You can develop the Domain name by adding content or you can just wait to see if its value increases as more people join the Internet and are aware of its implications.

Valuing Domain names is much like valuing any piece of "intellectual property" in that price is a difficult question to answer. The short answer is, an Internet Domain Name is worth what ever some one is willing to pay, or sell it for. Domain names have sold for prices ranging from $50 to over $1,000,,000.

One reason for the increase in Domain name value is the importance a Domain name plays in the ability for a site to be found and recognized. In the physical world it is common for the success of a retailer or restaurant to be directly related to their location. Hence the phrase, "location, location, location". On the Internet there are no physical locations but rather sites are found and recognized by the address they choose, many companies today are even choosing the branding of their services or products based on their ability to secure the appropriate Domain name.

The alternative to owing your own Domain Name is to be listed as an extention of an existing Domain, example: http://www.thewebadvantage.com/your_name
