We offer private Hosting. This ensures your company
will receive dedicated bandwidth and limited interference from our other clients. Most companies
put hundreds of websites on each server to make a profit at your expense. We make sure all of our
servers are running a peak performance and limit the number of website on each server to maintain
maximum advantage for you. All hosting at McCoy Productions is by invitation only, if you
would like us to review your needs please contact us. A strong global presence not only requires
a great website, but a great hosting company to make sure its fast and always available. Don't be fooled
by other companies who offer hosting the masses, its a volume game, and your just 1 in a million to them.
At McCoy Productions, your part of our family of clients, and your needs will be handled with
personal care and concern.
We know that getting a website is an important step in communicating with the world.
We walk you through the steps required to get started and help you understand the cost's and
options that you can add to your site to make sure its right for you.
How we start each web development project
|| We start by listening to your needs and requirements. All
websites have a purpose, and we help you understand the options that can help you accomplish that
goal. We do allot of listening and then ask some questions to get a feel for what look your
wanting and how developed a site your needing.
||We then get to the hard part, Determining a budget! This is the
part where 99% of our clients ask "well, how much does a website cost?" Its not an easy answer
since all websites are unique and all have different requirements. We take the approach
like a home builder would. Do you want a bungalow or a lake side mansion ? The best
way we have found so far is to get your requirements down, then have you determine a budget you want
to spend on this project. We do have a minimum of $350, and we charge $65 an hour for graphical
design and programming. (but that only tells you enough to understand how we bill, not how fast or how
much we can get done!) That also depends on your requirements! We then take your
requirements and your budget and draw up a game plan. We know how many hours we have to
work on it, and what we need to get done. So we then can understand how many bells and
whistles will be added or if we use basic designs to get more pages for the buck.
||We get started on MOCK UPS. There are several ways to do this.
Custom Design vs. Pre-designed templates. In order to give you more bang for your buck, you can
choose a template to build on, or we can design something from Scratch. We normally design 3
Variations of colors and looks to allow you to start guiding us in the direction that will make you
happiest. Once you decided on the layout and colors we start gathering all the data and
functional needs and create pages to accomplish all the goals your site has.
||Once we are in major development, we create a page for you to keep
track of what we are doing. This is where you can see all the current pages and any new pages we have
built. We set check points for each stage of development, and have a review and signoff
requirements before we take the next step. (if the site is simple, we don't get so formal, but
for a large corporate site, we work under a stick structure to make sure we don't miss any important
details or let your project get off budget.
||Delivery can be uploading it to our server for hosting , or loading it
to another host. We also can deliver it on a fully functional CD-ROM. That way you have a
complete copy of your site for backup. If we are not hosting it, we don't guarantee its
stability and charge to reload any sites that get messed up.
