Site-Builder Referral Programme

Yes, we have an attractive Referral Programme, although we do not run our own Affiliate Programme.

At Quick on the Net, a very high percentage of new sales come from 'word of mouth' referrals. People like using our site-builder service and we value this method of promotion.

This is our way of saying 'Thank You' for spreading the news about Quick on the Net. It's also an opportunity for you to indirectly make money from your website.

This is not a high-tech Referral Programme and it does not rely on cookies or complex technology. In fact, like everything we do, it's quick, simple and easy!

You can refer another client by any method, including:

  • Email
  • Telephone
  • Text message
  • Letter
  • Fax
  • Or word of mouth


    What do I get?
    If you put forward any clients for a new website and they subsequently sign-up to Quick on the Net, you will receive a free month on your monthly payment plan.

    If you are on a single payment plan e.g. 1 year term, we will provide the bonus free month at the end of your term, when your website reaches its renewal date. In other words, we will pop another month onto the end of the term, free of charge.

    If you have more than one website with us, in the interest of generosity, your bonus will be based on your highest value monthly payment in your website portfolio at Quick on the Net. In other words, we will provide a free month for your most expensive website.


    How do I qualify?
    We have 2 simple rules.

    1) To qualify, you must be an existing client and have a live website with us.

    2) Our sign-up form (checkout form) contains the following question:

  • How did you find out about Quick on the Net?

    To qualify, the referred client (the new customer) must mention your name (as the referring website owner) in response to this question during the sign-up procedure.

    And that's it! We'll take it from there and contact you immediately.


    Notes
  • We cannot reward referrals by another method.
  • We cannot accept retrospective referrals.
  • We cannot reward a referral partner 'after the event', if the new client has not mentioned your name in the sign-up form, as outlined above.


    There are no limits
    This initiative is unlimited and you can qualify for and receive as many referral bonuses as you like.


    Thank you for your support

    How Long does it take to Create a Website ?

     
     

    If you already have:

  • Your logo design
  • Text for your website
  • Photos or graphics for your website

    ...then you can build your own website very quickly indeed. We have seen lots of our customers launch a new website within 1 hour of signing-up.

    However, if you are starting from scratch and you still have to prepare your website content, it will obviously take longer.

  •  
     

    Do I need to Download Software ?

     
     

    No, you do not need to download any software.

    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.

    How Long does it take to Link a Domain to a Website ?

     
     

    Sometimes it happens within a few minutes, but typically, it will take around 8 hours. It should not take longer than 48 hours.

    It really depends on where you buy your domain. To avoid disappointment, please check out our recommended domain providers.

    What is Google AdSense ?

     
     

    You can think of Google AdSense as a small business opportunity. It's completely free!

    Back to top

     
     

    Can I display Google AdSense advertising on my Website ?

     
     

    Yes, that is no problem. This is also known as 'Ads by Goooooogle', or simply 'Google AdSense'.

    Yes, you can display both Google AdSense and Google Search in your website. In fact, this gives Quick on the Net a significant advantage over the other site-builder solutions. More importantly, it means that you can make money from your website!

    Back to top

     
     

    Which Pays More? Google Ads or Google Search Bar ?

     
     

    Based on our experience at Quick on the Net, as an estimation, you can expect to earn 97% of your Google money from AdSense for Content, compared with just 3% coming from AdSense for Search.

    To put it another way, for every $3.00 you earn from AdSense for Search, you can estimate that you will earn a whopping $97.00 from AdSense for Content.

    Of course, those are our findings and it may be different for you.

    Where is my Password ?

     
     

    Your username and password for QuickontheNet.com is automatically sent to you via email at the point of purchase.

    If you think you have not received your login details, the most likely reason is that your welcome email message has been delivered to your 'bulk mail' folder in your email account.

    Please check your 'bulk mail' folder, also known as your:

  • 'spam' folder
  • 'junk mail' folder

    If this has occurred, please modify your email settings to ensure that all future emails from QuickontheNet.com are sent directly to your inbox.

    If you feel you have not received the login details which are due to you, please contact us and we will come back to you as soon as possible.

    If you have already received your unique login details but you have deleted, lost or forgotten them, please go to forgotten your password and we send them to you via email reply.

    Have you got a Photo Library ?

     
     

    No, we don't have a photo library at Quick on the Net.

    However, there are lots of cool photo library websites out there for you to consider.

    If you want to add high-quality library photos to your website, we recommend iStock, where you will find the fastest growing collection of royalty-free stock photography in the world.

    It's free to sign up and there are no subscription fees. To register, all you need to do is click the iStockphoto graphic below and then click the 'sign up free' button.


    View My Portfolio


    How Cheap Is It?
    For website design, you can normally use low resolution stock photography and it only costs $1 per photo! The price is cheap, but the image quality is very impressive indeed.


    Download Photos
    As you create your own website design, you can browse and search for the photos you require. The iStockphoto image library contains over half a million files and a staggering 11,000 new images are added each week. Every image is reviewed for quality and legal integrity by a worldwide network of highly qualified inspectors.

    Enter your keywords and then search, browse and select the images you would like to add to your website. Unless you need to zoom right into a small part of your photo, you should find that the low resolution option works perfectly well for you.

    Do you have a Reseller Programme ?

     
     

    Reseller Programme

    Yes, we have a Reseller Programme and an attractive Referral Programme.

    If you have a creative eye for design and style, this is your opportunity to take advantage of our unique Reseller Programme. It's an opportunity for you to build websites using our easy-to-use website builder tools and make money from your creative talent.

    To help you on your way, we will give you a free website. It's a buy one, get one free deal! At a glance, the scheme embodies the following key features:

  • You have at least one of your own websites on our low-cost monthly payment plan, which includes the web builder tools and hosting service. If you want, this could be your portfolio site.
  • You can charge your clients (customers) a fee for your web design service. The price you charge is entirely up to you. In fact, we are not involved and you should reach a pricing agreement with your clients.
  • You get a free demonstration site, or demo site. You can think of your demo site as a non-business site, which you can use for testing, trying out new ideas, or building a 'proof of concept' site for your own prospective new business clients.
  • You can enjoy the full benefits of our Website Builder Referral Programme when your client signs up to QuickontheNet.com. In fact, your referral bonus benefits are not limited to your own clients. You will benefit if any new QuickontheNet.com customer credits you as their referrer.
  • Free help and support for both you and your clients. Make full use of our excellent help tools and please contact us if you have any problems at all.
  • Your customers can enjoy the benefits of QuickontheNet.com when you're finished doing the design work. They get a username and password, so they can log in, add information, edit the web content and maintain their own site. It's quick, easy and simple! Of course, this leaves you free to concentrate on your creative services.
  • This scheme is not limited to the UK. We welcome designers and creative people from across the globe and we already have an expanding customer base on the European mainland, Eastern Europe, the Republic of Ireland, the US, Canada and Australia. In support of our global efforts, we trade online using five major currencies: British Pound, Euro, US Dollar, Australian Dollar and Canadian Dollar.

  •  
     

    How long does it take to get my Website indexed on a 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.

    Where can I Register my 'Own Domain' for my Website ?

     
     

    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.

    Our recommended domain hosting and registration service providers are listed here.

    Please register domains for website design using this link.

    How do I Register a Domain Name ?

     
     

    For more details on: How to Register a Domain Name.

    Register a Domain Name

    Enter your domain name precisely (after 'www.) and click ‘GO’.



  • Select your preferred domain name(s) and then click 'add to basket'.
  • Click 'continue' (top right).
  • To use our website service, please select 'Domain only' - you do not need to buy web hosting (because we are hosting your website).
  • Then, sign-up with 123-reg (for a new customer account) and register your domain name(s).
  • It's fast, simple and easy!



    Domain and Email Hosting

    Once again, enter your domain name precisely (after 'www.) and click ‘GO’.



  • Click 'add to basket'.
  • Click 'continue' (top right).
  • Please select ‘Add email accounts’ – if you wish to add email accounts on the back of your domain name e.g. sales@mynewdomainname.com.
  • Remember to add a separate email account address for each name that you require. For example, sales@ and contact@ are 2 different email address accounts.
  • Please note that the email service is supported by 123-reg and not QuickontheNet.com (we provide free help and support with your website hosting).
  • Finally, sign-up with 123-reg (for a new customer account) and register your domain name(s) and email account(s).



    IMPORTANT
    It is important that you keep your 123-reg username and password handy, because you/we need to set up your domain when the registration is completed.

    Do you have Tips on how to choose a Domain Name ?

     
     

    How to Choose a Domain Name

    Yes indeed, we offer advice and useful tips on how to choose a domain name.

    How do I choose a domain name?

    You may wish to consider the following tips:

    Technical Constraints:

  • Do not use an ampersand '&'. Technically, it is illegal, so you should also avoid 'and'.
  • Do not use apostrophes. Technically, it is illegal and therefore the use of an apostrophe is not permitted.
  • Do not start or end with a hyphen (-).
  • The permitted characters are: abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz 0123456789-
  • All characters are lower case.

    Do Not:
  • Do not panic!
  • If possible, do not use hyphens.
  • If possible, do not use numerical characters.
  • If possible, do not use mobile phone text message abbreviations.
  • If possible, do not use '2' for 'to', '4' for 'for', 'u' for 'you' and 'ur' for 'your'.
  • Do not try to be too cool by using deliberate spelling mistakes. It's just not kool!
  • If possible, do not pad your domain name with unnecessary words like 'the', 'ltd' and 'company'.
  • Do not use brand names or trade marks which belong to other companies.
  • Do not use a limited (incorporated) company name which belongs to another company.
  • If in doubt, check out the Companies House website, perform a name check free of charge and check the directory of UK Limited Companies.
  • If you use more than one word, do not end and start words with the same character. For example, www.intelligenttelephones.com is not good, whereas www.businesstelephones.com is good.
  • Do not pay over the odds, because there are hidden charges to avoid.
  • For your registration service, we recommend: domain hosting and we will provide your web hosting service.

    Do:
  • Keep it short.
  • Make sure it is easy to spell.
  • Make sure it is easy to pronounce on the phone.
  • Use simple and plain English.
  • Use real words from the dictionary.
  • Use search engine keywords.
  • Keep it descriptive! Use words which describe exactly what you do.
  • Keep it simple and don't confuse your audience. What is this? www.shoeswearing.com Is it 'Shoe Swearing' or 'Shoes Wearing'?
  • Cover your options and buy more than one domain if you need to.
  • Only index one domain per website on search engines, if you wish to avoid diluting your search engine ranking.
  • Choose the right domain provider. They are not all the same and many have hidden charges.
  • For your registration needs, we recommend: domain registration.
  • Use a popular and mainstream domain extension.
  • Choose the right domain extension for your market or country. For example .COM for International; .CO.UK for UK; .CA for Canada; .COM.AU for Australia.
  • And finally, check your spelling before you buy and register online.

    Can I use my Own Domain ?

     
     

    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.
    Please click here for more details on domain name registration for website design.

    Can I use my Own Domain for Free ?

     
     

    Yes, you can use 'Web Forwarding' to link your existing domain with your Quick on the Net website for free.
    Please click here for more details on website design and using your own domain for free.

    Back to top

     
     

    Who owns my Domain ?

     
     

    You should own your own domain.

    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.

    How do I Host my own Website ?

     
     

    Web Hosting Provider

    Free website hosting is included as part of our website builder service at Quick on the Net. However, if you already have your own website and you are simply looking for a new web hosting provider, you have 2 main options to consider:

  • Rebuild your website using our site-builder toolkit
    or
  • Host your existing website with another web hosting service provider

    1. Rebuild your Website using our Site-builder

    Our website builder tools are extremely easy to use and you would be surprised at just how quick and easy it is to rebuild your current website.

    This will allow you to improve the design of your current site and take full advantage of our internet features, such as contact forms, photo galleries, site search, e-commerce integration and search engine optimisation. The list goes on...

    For more details and a full feature listing, please see our website design services.


    2. Run your Existing Website with another Web Host

  •  
     

    When I buy my 'Own Domain', do I need to buy Hosting ?

     
     

    No, you do not need to buy a hosting solution from your domain provider as your website will be hosted by QuickontheNet.com as part of our service.

    Back to top

     
     

    How does e-Mail Forwarding work ?

     
     

    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.

    Back to top

     
     

    Do I Save Money if I buy my website at the Start or the End of the Month ?

     
     

    No, it doesn't make any difference at all.

    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!

    Back to top

     
     

    Is there a Setup Fee ?

     
     

    No, we are pleased to inform you that we do not charge you a setup fee.

    If you compare our website prices with other site-builders, we believe this keeps the costs down for you. Many other site-builder products will charge you a setup fee, also described as:

  • Initial payment
  • One-off payment
  • Startup charge

    Back to top

  •  
     

    Is there a Cancellation Fee ?

    How do I Resize my Photos ?

     
     

    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:

    This web page tells you:

  • The Right Sizes

    Can I make a Horizontal Gallery ?

     
     

    Is it possible to build a photo gallery which goes across the screen, rather than straight down the screen?

    Yes indeed, that is possible. You need to use Microsoft Internet Explorer on a PC to build your image gallery in this manner. The end result appears as a grid of thumbnail images and this is what it looks like when you are finished:

    Food Gallery

    For more details, please see: How to build a Horizontal Gallery.

    The end result is very stylish and effective and this method of image gallery creation is very popular with creative photographers, artists and illustrators.

    As you would expect from QuickontheNet.com, it's quick and easy.

    Is there a Limit to the Number of Pictures which can appear in a Gallery ?

     
     

    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.

    Back to top

     
     

    Is there a Page Limit in a Website ?

     
     

    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.

    Example: Services in Corporate Entertainment

    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.

    What is Firefox ?

     
     

    Mozilla Firefox is the very latest web browser. This award-winning software is the fastest growing browser in the internet world. Firefox is extremely quick and it comes with pop-up blocking, tabbed browsing, and privacy and security features.



    The Firefox browser is now available with an integrated Google Toolbar, providing you with instant access to Google search, SpellCheck, and Autofill.

    Back to top

     
     

    Do you support Mozilla Firefox ?

     
     

    Yes, Quick on the Net websites operate perfectly well when viewed through the Mozilla Firefox browser.

    Our customer websites are already quick - and the Firefox technology makes them even quicker!

    Free Firefox

    The html editor in the Quick on the Net site builder toolkit does not support Firefox. The html editor (or rich-text editor) will only operate on Microsoft Internet Explorer on a PC. The editor has been designed to integrate and take full advantage of Microsoft's standard text-editing tools.

    With that in mind, we suggest you jump in to IE if you wish to format the appearance of your website text.

    The most important thing to remember is that your Quick on the Net website will look great and perform quickly when your website customers visit and browse your website using a Firefox Browser.
