Your Questions & Answers
If you don't find an answer to your query below, feel free to contact us.
Using your internet browser, we give you password access to our unique Web Site Builder tools, which allow you to manage your own website. When you make changes and update your site, the results are immediate. And of course, because it's all online, you can make changes at a time that's convenient to you.
It's a powerful solution, but powerful doesn't necessarily mean complicated. When you build a website at QuickontheNet.com, our system is easy to use, yet it is very robust and secure.
We cannot say exactly how long it will take to get your site listed. Sometimes it is very quick and it can even happen 24 hours after going live. However, the timescale can vary for each search engine.
You can normally expect your website to be listed in the search engines within a few weeks, however, it can take up to two or three months.
Please consider that this is the free listing or non-sponsored listing which appears on search engine results.
You can buy a domain from many different sources, but please be aware that not all providers offer a prompt and friendly service and many will charge you for additional services, such as email forwarding and IP forwarding.
Yes, you can use your existing web domain with your Quick on the Net website. For example, if you already have www.thisismycompany.com, then why not use it for your site.

In fact, we always encourage our website clients to register their own domain name(s).
We have absolutely no interest in gaining ownership of your domains. We like our clients manage their own domain registration and also take care of domain renewals, which occur every 1 or 2 years (or perhaps longer, if you have registered for a longer period of time e.g. 5 years).
If someone or some company is doing the domain registration on your behalf, it is important to ensure that they enlist you (or if you prefer, your business) as the legal owner of the domain(s), to give you the total freedom to transfer your domain at a later date and also to avoid any unnecessary disputes at a later date.
E-mail forwarding will be organised through your domain provider, and not through QuickontheNet.com. It is quite simple to arrange, it can normally be set up using the domain control panel and you can normally specify numerous email addresses.
For example, if you sign-up on the 1st of the month, then your next monthly payment will occur on the 1st day of the following month. Similarly, if you sign-up on the 25th of the month, then all your monthly payments will occur on the 25th. Simple!
Whenever you download your own photos from your digital camera to your computer, they will be very large in size.
If you consider that your camera images will be between 2,000 pixels and 5,000 pixels wide, they are much too big for use on a photography gallery website, since most people in the world browse the internet at only 1024 pixels wide:
We have not placed any limit on this. However, in the interest of making your website user-friendly for visitors to your site, we suggest that you do not place more than 30-50 or so images in each gallery.
No, we have not placed any limit on the number of pages which you can create.
We want you to create as many web pages as you need for your website and there is no restriction.
We believe this gives you a significant cost saving, since many other site-builder solutions will charge you for extra web pages. For instance, most site-builders have a price for 5 web pages, with a sliding increase in cost for 10 pages, 20 pages, 30 pages and so on.
Let's face it, when you start to build a website, how can you know exactly how many pages you will need? Also, your website is sure to grow, so we don't wish to hold you back.
If you make full use of our gallery feature, you can create a layer of 'second level' web pages. In other words, these pages are only revealed when you click a gallery menu button. This technique allows you to keep your website clean, simple and minimalist in its appearance.
Yes, you can add HTML to your website. If you already know a little bit of HTML programming, or, if you are a skilled in writing HTML code, you can add the code and enhance your website.
When you are editing Pages or Galleries, just click on <> to reveal the raw HTML code. You can modify the code and copy/paste code from other sources.
It is important to mention that you do not need any HTML skills at all to design and build a great website using our site-builder. However, if you already know a few tricks with HTML, then you can apply them to your website.
Yes, we believe it is. Let's face it, kids love the internet!
However, the website owner must be over 18 years old.
Parents who wish to allow their children, or teachers who wish to allow their school pupils access to www.QuickontheNet.com should assist them in setting up any sites and supervise their access to the site-builder tools.
