people who seem to think that good websites are built primarily with
technological components, formatting options, plug-ins, graphic
elements, domain names, host server space, search engine placement and URLs.
And then there are people who know that all the above are meaningless
unless you have “something worthwhile” to communicate… and then
purposefully choose to cohesively use every iota of the aforementioned
technology to effectively and efficiently mold your website to make your
In other words, website development is both art and science and our
professional aim is to employ and enliven both these vital qualities,
mixing them at the molecular level of thinking, to accomplish
synergistic quality in the services and products we deliver to our

We just wanted to take a minute to tell you what an incredible job
you've done with the website... We have been to many, many airpark
websites in the past few days and yours is not only the best, but the
others are not even in the same league. Not only does the Holley
Mountain site look fantastic and manage to convey the strong positive
spirit of the airpark, but it also has really good functionality. It's
logically laid out and easy to navigate... Great job!! ~~~

THANKS A BUSHEL AND A PECK!!!
WEBSITE START-UP & MAINTENANCE
Start-up costs come in three categories:
Website development, including: creative
design (aka: graphics & layout), creation and editing of written
content, and technical engineering.
Website development may be estimated at $100 to construct a basic
“template page” that has the color scheme, layout, and key features you
want on every page of your site. Your template page is also conformed
for “cross browser compatibility” and is set-up to maximize the ability
of search engines to locate your site, thus every new page added to your
site meets these same criteria.
Once your template page is designed, estimate minimum costs at roughly
$60 per page. Thus a very basic 5-page Website could cost as little as
$400 ($60x5+$100), given that the client has all photos, graphics,
logos, images and text available in “ready to post” format.
This material is assembled as a “concept site,” the purpose of which is to give you, the
client, something to think about and say yes or no to as we develop
the elements, style and functionality you desire. And, as we work our way through this
creative process, your template page is creatively refined and
Building on this, if you desire highly specialized enhancements like
Flash animation, an e-commerce engine (ie: shopping carts and online
catalogs), custom-rollover navigation, and/or if copy needs to be
written, photographs need to be taken, and graphic artwork must be done, etc., etc., and
so on, the cost per page goes up proportionately to the required amount
of work and skill.
For your consideration, Gozarks offers a comprehensive range of
technical and creative services, including all those listed above. We do
not, however, provide hosting or domain registration services, but I
highly recommend and prefer to work with Hyper Tech, Inc.
To be accessible 24/7 to Internet surfers, your Website must “reside on
a host server.” Simply put, this means that you must “rent” a kind of
“virtual storage locker” on a commercial computer system that is hooked
into the Internet.
Rates for hosting services vary widely, ranging from “free” to hundreds
of dollars per month. To meet your start-up needs, I recommend HyperTech
where hosting averages less than $20 per month. This package offers plenty of storage space, an
unlimited number of email accounts, a statistical tracking utility, and
also features MS FrontPage access which is vital if you desire to
eventually have someone on your staff do routine updates to your site
and is a required hosting feature should you choose to have Gozarks do your
website development and/or maintenance work.
As with hosting services, there are many “domain name registrars” and
their fees vary from $3.50 to $35 per year. A registrar enters specific
information about you and your chosen domain name (aka: URL) into the
computer systems that make it possible for individuals to surf the
Internet and connect to your site.
less than $20 per year for
Regarding hosting and registrar services, there are specific reasons why
HyperTech beyond the fact that they are a well-established,
independently owned and operated Van Buren County business. And there
are many more reasons why I am confident that Gozarks is best qualified
to develop and maintain a Website for you. Call us (501-745-4153)
and we'll be happy to discuss this with you.
UPDATING & MAINTENANCE
Costs for updating and maintaining your site once it is built, as with
initial development work, are entirely dependent upon what you determine
to be a “real need” and whether you elect to contract for this service
or train in-house staff members to tend routine tasks.
It is important, however, to consider these options at the time your
site is designed because it is easier and more economical in the long
run to set-up certain portions of your site to accommodate in-house
updating than it would be to install these features after the fact.
$25 per hour for routine website development, updating &
$40 per hour for image optimization
(formatting your photos and artwork to display properly on the Internet)
and animation (Flash, Java, etc.).
$60 per hour (and up) for the
installation and administration of specialized technical functions such as e-commerce engines,
database design, PHP pages, do-it-yourself updating features and
$100 per hour for strategic
promotional/marketing campaign development, ie: event/promotional timeline
development, writing and distribution of news releases, design of promotional materials
including custom artwork and layout for newsletters, flyers and brochures.
