Fees on custom web design – Inzinc charges a low rate of $60/hour for a custom/unique design (or redesign), development and content migration. Special designs such as a custom logo would be charged at our rate of $60/hour or Flat rate for nonexisting customers.
Custom Web Applications – Inzinc currently charges $65/hour for custom applications, which includes design, development, and implementation. Web website Statistics (tracking) for clients NOT on our Web Maintenance Plan – For clients NOT participating in the Analytics Web Maintenance Plan, a monthly statistics package is offered to all websites hosted on our servers for $85/, to 125$year (depending on plan). * For web design or web applications, Inzinc cannot always make estimates as to the time frame needed for completion, as all client websites are unique in size, content, and complexity. Inzinc accepts all jobs on a first come/first serve basis, and they are subject to availability of resources.
Our servers DNS: Nameserver 1 and Nameserver 2
Important Notice Browser Compatibility
In keeping stride with technology, Inzinc designs/codes all web websites to function in the latest browser versions for Chrome, Firefox & IE only (we strive for full functionality in all browsers, however), as they are the majority market share. We are conscious of earlier browser versions but cannot always develop a website to perform optimally with older software. Inzinc uses XML, ASP, Flash, CSS, and other web technology when developing websites and applications. Unless requested by your client (s) and/or warranted by Inzinc, a frames structure is avoided. Web Design and Development Process and Policy for Corporate clients
To design or redesign client(s) web websites within INZINC. The web development team at Inzinc will aim to create the website based on the specific needs of that client(s). The web website should be aesthetically interesting, possess a solid color scheme, contain a clear navigation system, and have ease of maintenance. Inzinc will host the website on our Server (Linux) based in Houston, TX. It is understood by the client(s) that there are limited resources available to Inzinc and that not all goals may be feasible. The goals of the client(s), as well as the guidelines set by Inzinc, will be discussed at the initial meeting and throughout the development of the project. View our portfolio of Inzinc web websites. Contact us if you would like to set up a meeting!
POLICY & GUIDELINES
- Stage 1– Initial Meeting between Inzinc and client (s) IP (Information Provider). Discussion of goals and determine web website structure. Some questions to think about:
1. Would you like a custom web design or use an Inzinc web template?
2. Is there a preference in color scheme?
3. Logos, photographs, images to use?
4. Will you need online forms?
5. Navigation & Main links – what are the names for these?
- Stage 2– Inzinc will create two to three design ideas and present to a client (s) IP to review designs, selecting one to go forward with. Inzinc open for comments and/or requests. Discussion of how lower levels will look
- Stage 3– Refinement of homepage design, a creation of lower level pages,
- Stage 4– Presentation of the complete design, approval from IP to go to development. Note: Changes to images after this approval will incur additional charges.
- Stage 5 – Development
Images are cut appropriately, exported as gifs. Image file size is then reduced for optimum load time. Web website is built with images, active links and navigation structure in place. Quality assurance testing is done in later browser versions, on both PC and Mac platforms. IP reviews the website and gives the approval to launch.
If any contract is not paid in full by the set contract, the site (client website commissioned) will remain the property of Inzinc Web Design and it’s parent company Webtradenow. All hosting account termination is the responsibility of the client to make prompt payments, Inzinc cannot be held liable for any loss of business incurred due to termination of hosting account because of nonpayment.
The Inzinc Web Maintenance Plan is encouraged for several reasons: Since clients contract with Inzinc for a web website redesign first, it is beneficial for the client (s) to have Inzinc maintain it afterward. Inzinc can guarantee timely, scheduled updates while maintaining the quality and integrity of the website. There is little chance for website corruption since our web team is proficient in the necessary design and development skills used for building and maintaining professional web websites. Staff or student turnover is not an issue since we are a dedicated group that ensures updates and website maintenance is continued during transitional periods.
