Datatronics Information Systems services include
the following options for our Web site packages advertised;


Please visit our glossary to learn more about any Web terms outlined in this page.

 

Web Design Consultation

Our representatives will work with you to determine your goals, visions and objectives that you hope to get from your new Web site. This includes helping you determine the best method of presentation in order to attract visitors.

        



Professional Web development

The end result of your Web site will look clean, appealing and professional. Our web development and design services range greatly depending on your personal site requirements and what kind of content your site requires. We love a challenge and are always trying out new technologies. We specialize in Dynamic and Active content, E-commerce, Real Audio and Video, Java, graphic design, image creation, and much more.

       


Redesign new or existing sites

We can design a Web site for you from scratch or redesign an out of date one. Typically we have an initial consultation to find out about your needs, thoughts and focus of your company. We then delve into your company's product or service, audience and current ultimate corporate goals for both the on-line and real world domains.

       



Hit counter on home page

We can set up your Web page with a hit counter that is efficient and coordinated with your site. This service includes independent counting, on-line stats, count total hits, and tracking.

         



URL submission to major search engines

On the Internet, a search engine has three parts:
  • "A spider (also called a "crawler" or a "bot") that goes to every page or representative pages on every Web site that wants to be searchable and reads it, using hypertext links on each page to discover and read a site's other pages"

  • A program that creates a huge index (sometimes called a "catalog") from the pages that have been read
  • A program that receives your search request, compares it to the entries in the index, and returns results to you

We will submit your new site to 30 of the most popular search engines, such as Altavista, Lycos, Excite, InfoSeek, Scrub The Web, HotBot, InfoSpace, WebCrawler, Magellan, Galaxy, Google, Yahoo, etc.


 

Domain registration

Domain names are the familiar, easy to remember names for computers on the Internet (such as datatronics.net). Having a domain name is like having a physical address of a business - (i.e. - 62 Elmview Drive, Tonawanda, New York 14150-7806)

They correspond to a series of numbers (called Internet Protocol numbers) that serve as routing addresses on the Internet. Domain names are used generally as a convenient way of locating information, such as Web pages and reaching others on the Internet.

We will handle all the paperwork in the registration of your domain name. This includes submitting the application to the InterNIC.

         

 
 

Html and JavaScript coding

This part of the service includes formatting both your Web page text and layout in a form that is readable by WWW browsers.
"HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) - is the set of "markup" symbols or codes inserted in a file intended for display on a World Wide Web browser."
 
The markup tells the Web browser how to display a Web page's words and images for the user. The individual markup codes are referred to as elements (but many people also refer to them as tags).
 
"JavaScript - is an interpreted programming or script language from Netscape. In general, script languages are easier and faster to code in than the more structured and compiled languages such as C and C++."
 
JavaScript is used in Web site development to do such things as:
Automatically change a formatted date on a Web page
Cause a linked-to page to appear in a popup window
Cause text or a graphic image to change during a mouse rollover

JavaScript uses some of the same ideas found in Java, the compiled object-oriented language derived from C++. JavaScript code can be imbedded in HTML pages and interpreted by the Web browser (or client). Both Microsoft and Netscape browsers support JavaScript, but sometimes in slightly different ways.

         

 

Color, font and style selection

Since Datatronics Information Systems does not use templates to create Web pages you have the luxury to choose the color, font, and style of your site. There are literary thousands of possibilities when it comes to color coordinating.

         



 

Forms or survey design

This service is very useful because you can improve the effectiveness of your website and make the organization of your site look more professional. Add a 'thank you" message after your visitor fills out a contact form.

         



Image/graphic scanning/editing

We can improve your picture or logo by cropping, editing or manipulating the image to make it more presentable to the viewing public. This service also includes color correcting and touch-up as required.

 




Custom guestbook

Guestbooks let visitors to your page leave comments and remarks. Not only does it adds more content to any site, but you can find out what your visitors think. You can see from where and when people are looking at your page, and also get valuable feedback. Its one of the simplest ways to add interactivity to your site.

         



Logo design

We will design a logo representing your name or personality that will stand out in your Web page. We feel that graphics are the first aspect of your site that will meet your visitor's eye. For this reason we work hard to make high quality images with high amounts of color, movement, and impact that will leave a lasting impression on your visitors.

         



Banner design

We can create a banner advertising your Web site so it can be displayed throughout your site. Banners are a great way to advertise your web site, company, or products. As part of our promotion department we offer banner placement, creation, and setup services.

         




Unlimited text insertions

Unlike other Web design companies who limit customers to two hundred words per page, you can choose any amount of text to put on your site. Cost is not a factor in the initial design.  We offer Webmaster Services after the site is complete for any changes that you may require.

         



Animations and 3D graphics

 

Give us a list of graphics that you would like us to include in your site. We will custom create exciting, professional graphics that are suitable for your Web site.

         



 

E-mail set-up and forwarding

If you choose to have your Web site hosted, we can forward all mailboxes to your current e-mail address.

         

 

Weekly visitor statistics

In addition to keeping track of hits to your site, Datatronics Information Systems  set you up with online access to real-time stats showing hits to your site. This allows you to quickly and easily view trends in hit volume over the previous months.

         



FTP assistance

FTP (File Transfer Protocol), a standard Internet protocol, it is the simplest way to exchange files between computers on the Internet. FTP is an application protocol that uses the Internet's TCP/IP protocols. FTP is commonly used to transfer Web page files from their creator to the computer that acts as their server for everyone on the Internet. It's also commonly used to download programs and other files to your computer from other servers.

         

 

Web site maintenance and updating

Even after your site is completed, we will be happy to add additions and changes to ensure that your site stays up to date. All of these are provided for in our Webmaster Services.

         



24/7 customer support

You can contact us any time of the day of you have questions or experience problems with your Web site. Our technicians are here to provide you with support anytime of the day.
