Website Design, Set-Up, and Installation
This service is provided directly by us at Cherry Websites. We are your single point of contact for all concerns about the website that you are hiring us to create. We'll work with you closely to define your website. You are responsible for providing us with photos or digital images of items you want us to include in the website design. We'll do the graphics and logo design if appropriate, scan photos or artwork that you provide, put together the website layout, custom develop any required website software, and install the website under the web-hosting account that we'll set up for you. This is what we do.

This service provides the hardware required to put your website on the internet. It includes operating state-of-the-art servers, redundant hard disks, high-speed modems, routers, and switches, maintaining the facility where this hardware in installed, leasing 24/7 open, high-bandwidth internet connections, and even backing up your data. Cherry Websites has an affiliation with a reputable, but inexpensive third-party vendor for hosting our basic websites.

Domain Name
This is a unique internet name that you must reserve in the domain-name registry in order have exclusive rights to it. Typically names like,, or are commonly used, although other extensions are now available. Since many of the shorter domain names are already taken, our customers must be resourceful in coming up with a longer name for their business that is not too long or hard to key in. Cherry Websites has an affiliation with Network Solutions for domain-name registration services. They offer "com", "net", and "org" domains for the nominal charge of $70 for a two-year term per domain name.

Shopping Cart Software
We use either third-party shopping-cart software, which uses standard SKU numbers for products, or our own shopping cart software that we designed to use a hierarchically product numbering system of the form ##-###, where the first field indicates the product type and the second field indicates the product sub-type. You'll save if we are able to leverage our software in creating your on-line store (this depends on your requirements).

Website Administration Software
This is our own Webtoolz™ Deluxe software, which enables you to perform a number of website maintenance services. It is executed from within any internet browser and it is password-protected for the security of your website. Using Webtoolz Deluxe, you make webpage-content changes, check or reset a website counter, upload images, remove temporary files, and even change your password. You can also use it to maintain and update your on-line store: change product descriptions, prices, images, page layouts, add new products and pages, use the "executive" chat room, send e-mail, change shipping and tax rates, and much more. Because it is web-based software, you can run it from anywhere there's an internet computer available.

Product Discount System
This is useful when you decide to have a sale in your on-line store. This system enables you to temporarily reduce the prices of selected items. The sale prices will then be automatically displayed on your website's product webpages up until the expiration date that you set. When the discount system is updated using the website administration software, the old sale items are automatically deleted.

Catalog Request System
Your website will have a form for your customers give their name and address when requesting your printed catalog, brochure, etc. The website administration software enables you to get a daily list of such information requests.
