Your domain name, with its websites and network assets are the portal to your communications and offerings. Premium web design should be deeper than the visible surface seen as your website.
Your online presence works for you 24-hours-a-day, seven-days-a-week. It will more than likely be the first place your patron gets to really know your brand. It can travel globally and does not require any kind of 401K match. It should, and can, work harder than even your best member or employee. Now, it can also be the tool that brings synergy to your people and mission.
The Internet, coupled with free and open technology, offers profound abilities. Communications freedom is a most basic right and never before have we had such impressive tools.
DiggnDeeper.com reflects a passion, if not obligation, to share these excellent technologies, their communities and principals which keep all of this stuff free and powerful.
General options and pricing for custom communications networks.
All design work takes advantage of the latest best practices in Search Engine Optimization (SEO), Security, and Usability.
I prefer payment in Bitcoin (BTC), and I would be happy to work out a discount and/or a strategy of payment timing to encourage the use of BTC over Federal Reserve Notes (FRN).

Prices and strategies vary depending on a variety of factors such as budget, traffic, site features current and future. This is as important a design consideration as any component.
Robust, high traffic, database-driven sites push the server and require close monitoring and frequent well-tested software updates. Monitoring and maintenance hours are applied to each monthly bill. Lower traffic, simple websites are less demanding and therefore cost less to maintain.
There are three main hosting scenarios used by us.
- Self hosting on your own network/ internet connection: Great customization and control. No additional hosting fees. Potentially limited bandwidth.
- Professionally hosted Virtual Private Server: Great customization and control. Good hosting can be costly on an ongoing basis. On demand bandwidth is very scalable.
- Professionally hosted Web Server: Limited to websites, often the most cost effective and simple way to host any website. Hosts do vary significantly in quality of hosting and customer service, so some homework is recommended.
