Your web site should be a business solution.

There may be many reasons for considering a web site for your business - your competitors already have one, or it seems like everyone else already has one, or you think it's neat to be able to give out your "www.heyihaveawebsite.com" web address, or maybe you read in some trade magazine that it's the easy way to "increase sales" or "lower costs."


But don't you think that, if a web site is the solution, shouldn't you be able to identify the problem first? At PCV Software, we use our 26 years of experience in solving business problems with information technology to examine the nature of your business, the demands of your market, and the goals of your business plan to formulate a web solution specific to your business.


Need some back-end programs to process all that new business you're going to create with your web site? How about some help in designing your complete business solution, including local or wide-area networks? We can provide additional programming and network solutions on virtually any hardware or software platform. Our successful projects demonstrate the wide range of technology and market situations that have helped form our core competencies.


Finally, if you are new to the Internet, this site incorporates a number of web technologies and techniques that could be used for your web site. After all, wouldn't you want your web site developer to be able to do "whatever is required" to make your site successful?


Tip of the Week

Customizing Your Server With htaccess

The most common web server available for hosting basic Internet sites is called Apache, an Open Source Software licensed product available from the Apache Software Foundation. It is popular not only because it is available at no charge, but also because it has proven to be much more secure from attack by hackers than other web servers.


In addition to choosing a hosting service that offers the Apache server, it is also important that the service allows the user to set up their own server customizations by using what is called an "htaccess" file. This file can be used by the web developer to change the way the server responds to errors, the logging of visitors information, access to secured files or directories, and the handling of special media files, among other things.


For example, if you've used the Internet for any length of time, you've probably encountered a message that the page you requested was not found (known as a "404" error). The ability to customize the error page is important to keep visitors from leaving your site for what is, hopefully, a temporary problem (to see a custom error page, here's a bad link). If your hosting service does not allow the use of htaccess to customize server settings, then your visitor will be shown a generic error page used by the hosting service, and not have a clue as to what to do next. For this, and many other reasons, be sure htaccess support is included in your service contract.
