We've automated many services that have traditionally been done manually, so we can pass the savings on to you. It’s that simple. And that means we can provide you with low-cost access to powerful technology and specialized skills that might not have been affordable to your business.

Besides, We want our customers to get more than what they pay for. Because in this day and age, you need more than just a plain website to let your presence be known on the Internet.

Honestly, we don't think there is a comparison. In addition to being cost-effective, Ownspot provides state-of-the-art, yet extremely easy-to-use tools and a wide range of special services you can add to your site.

Why shouldn’t I just hire someone to build my website or do it myself?
Everyone knows that hiring website designers can be very costly, not to mention time-consuming. Ownspot also eliminates the need for you to buy, install, and learn how to create websites on your own. There will be no burden with locating and setting up web hosting at an Internet Service Provider, establishing and registering an Internet address (domain name), and finally installing your completed website. These tasks are automatically done for you when you become a member. In addition, we continually upgrade our system and closely monitor technology trends, incorporating the most valuable advancements into the Ownspot service. This way, we deliver the finest technology and design services available, so that you can concentrate on doing what you do best, your business.

How often can I update my site?
Ownspot members have unlimited editing power. You can update your website at anytime, as many times as you like.

In order to encourage your customers to come back to your website, you should keep your website current and up-to-date. If you don't have weekly news, you can keep people updated with information about your industry or service and make your website a valuable source by adding links when you go online and make edits.


Should I have my own computer or Internet account?
You can sign up now and create your website with any computer that has an Internet connection and a browser such as Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator. You can get started using any Internet-connected computer, including a friend’s, a family member’s, or one at the public library. The only requirement is that you must have a valid email address.

If you do not currently have your own connection to the Internet, you might want to establish one, so you can conveniently access your Ownspot account any time you need to.



Technical Questions

Is the World Wide Web a safe place to do business?
Most experts consider the Internet to be as safe or safer than other business transaction mediums. Ownspot uses encryption and other sophisticated technologies to insure your safety. For instance, our online registration system uses the SSL (secure sockets layer) standard when you register. This technology safeguards all your information, including your credit card information, by encrypting it during transit over the Internet. Most experts consider this safer than using your credit card person-to-person because fewer unauthorized persons have access to your confidential information.

What is a URL, Web address, or domain name?
A URL is the address of your Website. It stands for Universal Resource Locator. For most purposes, the words "domain name" and "URL" can be used interchangeably. This address tells a user's Web browsing software (Microsoft Internet Explorer, Netscape Navigator, etc.) where to go on the Internet to find a website.

What is HTML?
HTML is the computer coding language that makes web pages possible. As an Ownspot member, you won't need to concern yourself with HTML. Our powerful automation technology allows you to publish sophisticated websites visually, with no HTML knowledge whatsoever.

Do I need to know HTML, have Internet networking skills, know other computer languages, or possess multimedia design skills?
Absolutely not! The best benefit of Ownspot is that you need no special computer skills whatsoever. Ownspot's automated systems handle all these details for you. Ownspot builds high-quality web graphics, HTML codes, and taps powerful programs all with point-and-click ease. We register your custom domain name, list your website with major search engines, and more - all automatically. You simply concentrate on making your site a great vehicle for communicating to your audience. It's that simple.

What if I already know HTML? Can I use it?
Yes! Ownspot accepts HTML into all of its fields. If you desire to use HTML, you are free to include it in your pages.
