Bob MacLeod • Computer Consultant
MacLeod Computer Systems is owned by computer consultant Bob MacLeod, and is located in Santa Barbara, California. We have offered a variety of computer products and services to the business community since 1980. Although we still sell computers and accessories, the primary focus of our business is now web site design and hosting. We cater to small businesses who want a web presence but don't want to handle the details of doing this themselves.
Internet Web Hosting
We offer an attractive alternative to the high priced services found elsewhere. We will host your web site for just $60 per year. We maintain your web pages as part of our service and will update your site any time you wish.
As a provider of these services, MacLeod Computer Systems offers the following:
If you don't currently own a domain name (i.e. www.yourcompany.com), we can handle the registration for you. The ownership of this name will be in your hands, so you maintain complete control (although we will handle the details and administration for you).
We will design and set up your web site for you or accept files generated by you. The site can be as simple or complex as you desire.
For a nominal additional fee, we will set up domain name e-mail boxes for you (email@example.com). This presents a much better image to your clients than the use of a third-party domain name (i.e. UserID@YourISP.com) or one of the various free services. Also, your e-mail address will remain constant even if you change your local internet service provider. This eliminates the need to reprint business cards and stationery if you change your ISP.
Your e-mail box can be accessed either with a traditional e-mail program (i.e. Outlook) or with any web browser from anywhere in the world.
Domain Name Registration. If you wish, we will administer your account for you at no additional charge beyond the registrar's actual fee, which is billed directly to your credit card.
Web Site Setup. A one-time setup fee of $80 includes setting up a basic one page web site with your logo and/or photos, company name and address, links to your e-mail boxes, and any text which you supply. A reasonable number of minor revisions (that take less than five or ten minutes to do) are free but major revisions and the creation of additional pages are billed at $80 per hour.
The annual fee for hosting your web site is $60 per year. There are no ongoing charges for a reasonable number of additional web pages.
Terms. The setup fee and first year of service are due in advance ($140 total). After the first year, we will bill you annually. Revisions to the site are billed on an hourly basis at the time they are completed. Web design and hosting is not subject to sales tax.
