Publishing, Hosting, Domain Administration, Technical Support

S = Standard; P = Professional; J = Journalmaker; E = Enterprise

Hosting & Domain Administration: Includes use of Sitemaker CMS and/or Journalmaker editing suite, tools, automated content management and design systems. All support is on our server network. Technical support is as shown for Premium and Journalmaker sites. No content support is included (does not include manipulation of text, graphics, or other content; see Creative Support below). Bandwidth-intensive tools including podcasting are likely to incur additional storage and bandwidth costs. Domain administration and renewal are included while an account is current; delinquent accounts will be assessed a restart charge.

Do not compare these fees to "hosting" deals you find on the Web. Most of the recurring fees are not for hosting or machine resources. They also reflect the time you will save on data management and the salary you will not pay a "webmaster" to manage your site. Any competent writer or manager can manage the data in your site, and one Clark Internet-trained liaison person can manage the structure and design easily.

Standard Sitemaker Package

Item S      
Standard service includes
  • Sitemaker CMS design and publishing system with rock-solid navigation
  • Sitemaker tools with automatic layout: blog, contact form, FAQ, calendar, guestbook, gallery.
  • Up to ten general purpose pages with user-definable layout.
  • Data backup and limited prepaid technical consultation
  • Typically follows Quick Start Package.
Other services are priced separately. Creative support in the Standard package is 100% billable; technical support includes only issues attending system errors.
We are not a "hosting" company. All services include technical support that eliminates the need for a staff webmaster; this approach is very cost-effective. When we're not working, we're not billing.

Creative Services

Although we can often accommodate the occasional twist and tweak of the system to help site owners use it wisely and efficiently, our monthly rates do not include intervention in actual content (text, graphics, video, etc.). Additional creative support is available from our team of experienced data processing managers and web designers at hourly, daily, weekly and project rates. We help you plan your budget. Prepaid service in ten-hour blocks is also available at a substantial discount. Creative support includes restoration of data from backups for a user who deletes content accidentally or who later wishes content had not been deleted. Ask your representative for a quote on creative services.
