Webmaster Comments:

I enjoy making websites for people with livestock and pets the most, but I also have a some experience with Zen-Cart shopping cart systems and other types of business websites, so enjoy some of those challenges. I also do digital photo retouching if needed, and most often work on digital cattle pictures to remove flies, ticks, mud and manure, so the photos can be used on  websites, brochures, flyer’s, and sales catalogs.  Questions?  Contact Me

Webhosts:

I work with and have the software to work with "Linux Hosting". This is also often the more economical priced and most common used webhosting packages out there, usually using the popular Apache server systems. Before I recommend some webhosts that my clients are using, I would like to touch a few points. There are thousand of webhost servers all over the world most are good, some are scary. A lot of businesses come and go in this area, so better to go with a webhost that is well established and has a larger number of users, they are more likely to stay in business and keep their customers happy. If you want to find out about some of them you can Google using the keywords: "webhost", "webhosting". You can find many listed on TopHosts.com, check out the "Linux Hosting" section there. All of my clients are using what is affordable for a budget, but will give them the most in their webhosting package for the money. To save money, they go with paying annual fees (yearly), instead of higher priced monthly fees. And we try to get as much band width and webspace as possible for the money. "Band width" has to do with how much uploading and downloading is done from your website by yourself, webmasters, and the visitors. If you want to run some videos on your website, Band width is even more important. If you have low band width, your webhost will allow error images to appear on your website to replace the images you want your clients to see, if the band width for the month is exceeded. So, you want to avoid that by having higher band width. Below I have listed some webhosts my clients are using and having pretty good luck with. Up-time is good on these webhosts, which means the website are working most of the time, with just occasional problems. Each of these webhosts have well over 100,000 users, so are more likely to stay in business. I also recommend them just based on my own experience working with them. Most of these webhosts will even include at least one domain name hosting free for 1 year for no extra charge as a part of their hosting package. They cost less then $15 a month and most also allow you to have several more then one website within same webhosting package for no additional charge, other than for additional domain names. They also have limited use shopping carts available. Back to Menu

Copyright on your website:

It appears it's okay to put the Copyright symbol © on your website, if you want it there. But that only offers some very limited protection that isn't worth a lot. Your rights would likely be more symbolic then sue effective, if not officially registered with the U.S. Copyright Office. However, having a copyright notice on your website, even though not registered, may keep some people from duplicating what you have on your website. But, for full copyright protection and to have the right to sue, you do need to register your website with the U.S. Copyright Office for that type of protection. Of course there are many elements to a website that need to be covered. As example if you have me design the website from scratch, you should have me sign an agreement that you can have copyright rights to my work used on your website. Any photos, templates, written material, or other material that are public domain or done by an individual you do not have agreement with in writing for copyright, or have license to use, will not be included in your rights on the copyright. If you do want to register for copyright protection, if your website consists primarily of textual material that you want to protect, you will need to use Form TX. If your website contains a bunch of images of graphics which you own and want to protect, then you will want to use Form VA. They will likely require a full copy of your website on a CD or DVD, with your application, which I could provide for you. There are many websites that explain about this, use keywords like "copyright website" in major search engines (example: Google), to find out more information about Copyright. Back to Menu
WebHostingHub - In 2014 I moved my own websites here. A small but growing company. So far I'm please with the cost and the tech support and service. Allows multiple sites under same hosting package.
Ipower - Several  of my clients are using this webhost that is based in USA. I like working with them.  Problems have been very few for a budget priced WebHost.  If you can get it on Sale, you can take it out for up to 3 years if paid in advance.  After that the hosting package will return to it’s regular annual price. Allows multiple sites under same hosting package.
Dreamhost - I had been with this webhost myself a few years, for a project I started and hadn't finished, it’s a nice enough webhost. It's located in USA, it has good up-time. Sometimes on holidays, they run some pretty good specials on their webhosting packages. If you pay for at least a year in advance, a setup fee is waived. If non-profit and can provide them with IRS-issued 501(c)(3) determination letter, they will host your website for FREE!

Hostgator - I don't have any clients currently with this webhost, but I do have some domain names hosted there myself. Hostgator seems to be a popular one with over 9 million websites. They claim to be one of the top 10 largest webhosts. When I need to contact their tech support about my domain name service, it was prompt and professional. A number of people complained the service got worse when it went under new ownership, but many others seem to be happy with them. The price is good for those on a budget.

EZ-Web-Hosting - None of my clients have signed up with this one yet. But I know a group that is, and they seem to be happy with the service. They do host domain names. Most of these shared webhosting packages want to charge you for 1 year, this one, for a little higher fee they will charge on your credit card monthly. This package should work well for those who only need to use one domain name (domain name costs extra).
Netfirms - At on time this was a very good service, then it was sold, moved, and quality of service dropped a lot. During 2017 service has improved some, but still not up to the previous owners standards. Some of my clients are having problems with their emails bouncing, or marked as spam because Netfirms is mailing out costumers email under their own domain name smtp. Also still issues if you require a shopping cart. For a regular website it can work okay. Allows multiple sites under same hosting package.
