WHY YOU SHOULD USE A EXPERIENCED & PROFESSIONAL WEB DEVELOPER
FOR YOUR NAVY LEAGUE COUNCIL Website
(or... What makes WebSlingers special, and why free websites don't work for anybody)

YOUR COUNCIL'S WEBSITE

Your council's website is your council's face on the web.  As with any website, it must be informative, attractive and professional The Navy League council website template from WebSlingers Web Development is a real website, designed and built entirely from scratch by a real WebMaster with real web-development and programming experience.

Your council's website will follow the de facto industry standards for design, navigation and overall usability.

WebSlingers can maintain your existing site on YOUR hosting server if desired.  A monthly maintenance fee applies.

WebSlingers can maintain your existing site on OUR hosting server if desired.  One-time transfer fee, monthly maintenance fee & annual hosting fee applies.

WebSlingers can also build a complete, professional, effective and unique site for your council.


THE WEBSLINGERS WEBSITE TEMPLATE

Our website template is not a hodgepodge of 3rd-party commercial packages, and is not made from random design elements lifted from the NLUS website

Due to its proprietary security features, content sharing and other functions, our council template is only available for use on our server.


WEBSITE SECURITY

When hosted on our servers, your council website will be highly resistant to spammers and hackers.

We monitor our hosted websites very closely and we know how to respond to a hacker attack in progress.


WEBSITE UPDATES

All you have to do is send us the material and tell us when to remove it.  We do the rest.

For most updates, next-business-day updates are GUARANTEED.  Most of the time they'll be done IMMEDIATELY.  Design and development of more complex functionality can take longer.


TEMPLATE FEATURES

All template features are supported at no charge.  This includes immediate and unlimited updates to on-template content.

Website Template Content Updates:
  • Front Page

    OFF-TEMPLATE FEATURES

    An additional charge applies to council-requested features that are not part of the template.


    WEBSITE HOSTING: $200/yr

    Hosting fee is additional, and only applies if you use our hosting service.

    This is the industry standard for full-featured hosting.  Cheaper hosting services are out there, but you'll get cheaper service.

    If you're happy with your current hosting service, there's no need to move it to our hosting server.

    We own the hosting company, so there's no middleman - we handle it all.

    We've owned, controlled and managed our full-featured, state-of-the-art hosting service since 1994.


    DOMAIN NAME REGISTRATION: $17/yr

    Domain name registration is additional and only applies if you don't have a domain name.

    This is the industry standard for full-featured domain name registrations.  Cheaper domain name registrars are out there, but you'll get cheaper service.

    No middleman - we handle it all.

    You may also elect to register and handle payment for your council's domain name.


    ABOUT US

    We're true WebMasters and experienced programmers, so we can offer custom web programming services that are beyond the abilities of others.

    We were designing and developing websites before our competition knew the World Wide Web existed.

    Simple or complex, large or small - there's no limit to what we can do.  On the other hand, third-party commercial packages have limitations.

    We're real Programmers.  We know what the underlying code looks like, and we control it all.

    We're real WebMasters.  We know the technology behind the Internet, its history, and how it works.

    Our portfolio is larger than most web developers.

    We've been in business longer than most web developers.

    We've been online longer than most web developers.

    We'll give you better customer service than most web developers.


    OTHER

    The fact is, you get what you pay for.  Everyone involved knows what a free or discounted website is worth.

    If your council site is unattractive or doesn't work, visitors won't come back.  That reflects poorly on your council and the Navy League.

    Statistically, people offering low-cost websites won't be around in two or three years.

    Low-cost developers can't afford the costs of running a real web-development company.

    We've been developing websites full-time since 1994, and have been in business full-time since 1987.
