What to expect during your NetKennel website setup

Interested in signing up for the NetKennel website, but not sure what to expect during the build process? Hopefully this document will help answer any questions you might have.

The great news is that 95% of your NetKennel website is already built for you. NetKennel websites are pre-written with more functions and features than you’ll probably ever need. These websites are template driven, we just need to apply a personalized design, your photos and colors, as the finishing touch. No need to worry, you won’t have to design your own site! That’s because we handle everything, from start to finish, then we turn the website over to you to maintain.

We want your NetKennel website to be something your proud to call your own, but in order to build a website tailored to your taste, we need your input. The first steps to setting up your website is gathering some intel. Information we might need from you: Your kennel name and what you would like your domain name to be, for example www.mykennelwebsite.com. We don’t require it, but would like examples of other websites that you like, this will help us understand your taste, so we can build a website more to your preference. We will need lots of pictures to design the layout of your site. The more photos you send, the better the results will be. It’s makes it tremendously more difficult to build a website customized for your kennel when we only receive a few blurry photos to work with. We would also like to know if you have any preference for the colors used on the site. We do require few paragraphs of text that describe your kennel for the Welcome / Introductory page. You’ll need to write this yourself and include things like where you’re located, how you got started, what kind of dogs you raise, and what you’re trying to accomplish with your breeding program. You’ll also want to drop a few names of famous dogs that show up in your pedigree. We will clean up whatever you send us, making it search engine friendly.

After we have collected all this information, we will allocate server space and deploy the NetKennel engine to it. Initially, your website template will be blank, and we will start by applying a color scheme to it, followed by your logo and whatever photos we selected to build the interface with. The NetKennel templating engine is pretty robust and will allow us to do a lot of things, but we will still be somewhat constrained by the template we use.

Once the website is up and running, we’ll ask you to take a look. At this point, you’ll need to give us your honest feedback on what changes you would like to see. If you see something you don’t like, don’t be afraid to tell us, it’s just part of the design process. We might have to go back and forth a few times before we get a finished product we are both satisfied with.

NetKennel websites are $25 per month, there is no design fees, no hosting fees, no domain name fees, and no maintenance fees. You won’t pay a dime, until the website is to your satisfaction. NetKennel websites are designed to be a low cost, easy to use and effective way to advertise your kennel on the internet. Unfortunately, at these low prices, we can’t sink a ton a resources or man hours into building / designing your site. We will spend a few hours customizing and configuring your website, then turn it over to you to maintain. The website interface is designed to be simple to use and simple to maintain. The administration pages are all form driven, so if you can fill in the blanks, you can maintain your own website. We understand that not everyone has time to maintain their own website, so we offer an additional design and maintenance service at $25 per hour if you need us to make changes for you.

If your website requires functionality outside of what’s already programmed into the NetKennel engine, we can offer customization of the engine for an additional fee. Feature additions added to the engine will be shared with all other NetKennel websites through future updates.
