It Should Just Work
At Anchor-Hosting.com, we believe that your website should help you be more productive. It should never be a hassle or a waste of time
Typically, you will initially take 1-2 hours of your time to decide on the text and graphics that you want for your website. Once these key elements are decided we will create your site and submit it for your approval. You always have the opportunity to tweak or change the look and feel of your site by giving us a call or sending an email to your Account Manager.
What is an Account Manager? Every business, organization, club, society, or individual who hosts with Anchor-Hosting.com has a single point of contact for all web related issues. Your account manager will handle everything for you and make it simple and easy for you to receive the service you deserve.
This concept of account management is what truly distinguishes us from everyone else. We realize that you have many options for hosting and website development. We want you to realize that our combination of service, reliability, creativity, accessibility, and affordability give us a huge advantage over others. When you have a real person to talk to, a person who knows your account and your needs, you are guaranteed to receive the best service available.
At Anchor-Hosting.com, we are skilled in a variety of website development tool sets. We will custom create your site that is unique to your needs. We have deep experience in the following systems:

- Joomla! Joomla! is another very powerful CMS system that offers complex functionality and is fairly easy to use.

- Dreamweaver & ADOBE CS6. Dreamweaver and Adobe Creative Suite is one of the most powerful and important tools that professional website and graphic designers currently use.
Our advice to clients is to allocate yourself to spend 1-2 hours thinking about how you want your site to look and preparing graphics such as digital images. Surf around the internet doing a search for businesses that are similar to your own. Jot down the URL of the ones that catch your eye and then we can begin with a point of reference and go from there. Oftentimes, we can work out the design on a piece of paper and then mock up a solution for approval. The process does not take long and the consultation is provided at no additional charge.

If you just need an existing picture cropped or slightly modified such as to superimpose text then there will be no charge.
