How do I buy a domain name? Think of a name Try and choose a name that is easy to remember, short, and if possible one that describes your website.

Simply type the name you want into the search box and away you go!

Networking

The advantages of IT are undeniable. A high-quality IT system increases productivity, boosts revenue, improves customer satisfaction and reduces costs. It’s a powerful business asset – and that’s why you love it. But all it takes is one network crash, one failed backup system, one malicious virus to wipe out all those crucial IT advantages.

Website Design

First impressions count. It’s said that potential customers decide within the first 30 seconds whether or not to leave a website. If you’re still here… Welcome and thank you for considering PCGURU for your website design project.

At one time web designers created websites from scratch. At that time designers would spend months trying to create the perfect website design, however things have changed greatly since that time.

Today we have website templates that are created much easier, faster and are more affordable.This cuts down significantly on the amount of time and work it takes to develop a website.

While a good template can cost you hundreds of dollars a custom-built web design can cost you thousands.

The sad part is that the custom website designs (in most cases) do not look as good as the website templates. The only thing the web designer has going for him is the word “custom” but he loses that once we take a template and start customizing it.

Yes the availability of website templates have opened up a whole new world of opportunity for web developers who can now create quality websites in much less time. We have dealt extensively with web designers over the last eight years and have found that most of the custom website designers get their ideas from template websites. So basically you are paying $4000 for a designer who got his idea from a $100 template.

You would be better off buying the $100.00 website template and then paying a web designer to customize it.
