Whether you are looking to increase profits or cut expenses, a website can and should be an integral part of your business model. Over 60% of consumers today go online to research products and services before they buy, and if you don't have information about your company online, you're at a disadvantage.
A good website provides 24-hour-a-day answers and information for your customers and potential customers. And with e-commerce capability they can make a purchase at any time... day or night. That means that even while you are sleeping, your company is open for business and making you money!

Do I need to know HTML or learn any complicated software?
No, using the EZ-Net Tools™ system you can literally build an entire website without any knowledge of HTML or programming. The EZ-Net Tools™ hostware is easy to learn and very easy to use.
How is EZ-Net Tools™ better than off-the-shelf software?
In almost every way imaginable. EZ-Net Tools™ provides a complete solution, where an off-the-shelf package would only cover a small portion of what you really need to get your business on the web.
An EZ-Net Tools™ account includes web page creation, web page hosting, E-commerce capability (the ability to receive payment directly online), and promotional tools. No other solution offers such a complete package.
Also, with off-the-shelf software you must purchase software updates and upgrades in order to keep up. With EZ-Net Tools™ you never need to purchase an update or upgrade... your tools are updated in real time as we make improvements.
Is your Web creation software template based?
EZ-Page Builder is a "free form based" system and not template or catalog based. The free form based system allows you to create as many pages as you want, upload as many photos and graphics as you want, and design the pages the way you want. You can also implement HTML and JAVA programming throughout the system.
How secure is the EZ-Net Tools™ system?
EZ-Net Tools uses SSL (Secure Socket Layer) technology. You can feel confident that your web page is both safe and secure. In addtion to SSL, credit card transactions also benefit from our 3-Way Encryption™ technology.
Where can I go for help if I don't understand something?
EZ Website Builders, website accounts, come with FREE customer support for as long as you are an active member. Support is provided by telephone, e-mail, fax and instant online chat.
Do I need a "Domain Name" with your system?
No, but we suggest you get one to better market your product or service. If you choose not to get one, your Internet address would be similar to this:
Can I use my current Web address/Domain Name?
Yes, and there are no fees associated with transferring a domain name and most other information over to your EZ-Net Tools™ account.
How do I get my own Domain Name?
Domain Names are registered by a government-appointed agency called Network Solutions/VeriSign, formally InterNIC. EZ-Net Tools™ links to the Network Solutions/VeriSign database. You can search and purchase a Domain Name from Network Solutions/VeriSign through EZ-Net Tools™.
How do I get my Graphics and Pictures on the Internet?
With EZ-Net Tools™, you can either use the stock graphics provided with the system or upload your own (in a .jpg, .gif or .png file format) with EZ-File Manager™ or with the various upload buttons conveniently placed throughout the system.
The Internet supports .jpg, .gif, and .png file formats. (Photos are almost always .jpg). If you have a library of photos in .jpg format, you simply upload them through EZ-File Manager™ or with the upload buttons. You can scan your existing photos and import the .jpg file. You can also use a digital camera and upload the photograph from the disk.
Can I set-up an E-mail account with you?
Yes, you can have up to 5 e-mail accounts with a Basic website, up to 50 e-mail accounts with a Standard website and up to 200 e-mail accounts with an E-Commerce website. An Example would be: firstname.lastname@example.org
How is "Hostware" different from Software?
Software is stored on a CD or floppy and uploaded onto your hard drive. It can also be downloaded onto your hard drive, over the Internet.
Hostware is a combination of hosting and software, which is accessed over the Internet. You simply login to your account and go to work!
The big advantage of Hostware is, you don't have huge programs taking up space on your computer!

Is EZ-Net Tools™ a template like many other systems?
Definitely not! It is a "free form" system. In other words, each page is created the way you want it to look. Limitations of color, styles, number of pages, number of graphics, etcetera, are virtually removed with a free form system.
