Good News Your domain name is your brand, your call sign, and your calling card. Pick it wisely, based on where your business is now and where you are headed. If you are a performing artist, or sole-proprietor, YourName.com is what you really want.
Not so good News Often times, internet savvy business people have leased www.YourName.com and laid claim to your name. This is legal, and is not considered identity theft. While this is a business practice that Allport Productions does not promote, many of these so-called "domain name hi-jackers" are just really savvy business folk, who have anticipated your need for the domain and want to re-sell it to you at a negotiated profit. Others may in fact have the same name as you.
In any case, if you don't have www.YourName.com registered to you, you will want to get that right away, before someone else snatches it (even if you aren't intending to build your website right now). Allport Productions can assist you with this process. Allport Productions can acquire your domain name and hold it in trust for you, so that the domain name is always ready, when you need it, and no one else can hold it "hostage" for high ransom.
Hosting is the process of providing "server" space for your website to be built upon, and be parked there as long as you lease the server space. In laymen's terms, it works similar to a mobile home park. Classy, huh? You may own the mobile home, but you need to lease the land at the park to place the mobile home on and you must also pay for the utility connections.
Same with your website, and unless you know how to design and construct your own server, which is always up with 0% downtime, its best to leave this part to the professionals.
That is where Allport Productions comes in. By teaming up with the strongest hosting provider in the business, we are able to bring you redundant, UNIX based peace of mind hosting that is guaranteed to be up 99.99% of the time.
We will also provide you a full compliment of IMAP email addresses at your domain name to give your business a fully professional image. Most hosting providers only provide you with POP3 email. "What's the difference, you ask?" Simply put, IMAP is a much stronger email protocol that allows constant syncing with all of your desktop, laptop, PDA and mobile phone email devices. This means that you are never out of contact with your customers or potential employers, and never left hanging by a missed message thanks to POP3 mail.
This is the creative part!
This is the part where you and Allport Productions get to play together to create your brand, your image and present to the world what it is that you have to offer.
We offer e-commerce solutions for selling your own book, CD, whatever! You make your voice heard, you baby blues sparkle and let the world know that you are ready for them.
Remember though that this process doesn't happen without the first two steps.
With three levels of development there is definitely a package to suit your needs as a price that is also affordable!
