Normally we are hired to design and implement websites, what distinguishes CodeArts from other services is we understand the whole process of web business. From initial idea, business plan, launch, funding, profit, right through to exit strategy.
We believe that successful web implementation depends on usability, service quality. Many people believe that using latest and greatest technology will make or break a project.
But our experience has taught otherwise. Technology is only a tool which need to be analyzed, weight and used as service demands. Some projects require simple solution, while others require more complex solution.
What is a domain name? How can I choose a domain name? What domain name will be better for my website?
Domain name represents and locates a business, an organization or other entity on the Internet. Domain name can also be referred as the web address. When you type the web address on your web browser, the request is sent through your Internet Service Provider’s (ISP) to go to that certain address. The ISP then checks their DNS (domain name server) to find the domain name pointing to its web host (for e.g. Avenues Nepal’s web hosting). When it finds the correct hosted website it is displayed on your browser.
Choosing a domain name totally depends on you or how you’re going to use it. You can also choose a domain name according to the type of your business. We recommend you to choose one that is easy to spell. Domain names come with different extensions depending on the type it belongs to like commercial enterprises have “.com” or “.biz” extension similarly, for educational establishment “.edu”, for government body “.gov”, for military “.mil”, network “.net”, or for organizations “.org”.

In order to have your site accessible on the Internet you have to pay a monthly fee, which is known as web hosting. Hosting account is a place where you website resides.
We provide web hosting services at a very reasonable price.
URL is an acronym of Universal Resource Locator or Uniform Resource Locator. URL is the address of a resource or file available on the Internet. The URL consists of three components: the protocol (e.g. http:// or ftp://), domain name for the resource and the hierarchical name for the file(address). Our URL is: http://www.codeartsnepal.com, here http:// is the protocol, www is a pointer to a computer or a resource and www.avenuesnepal.com is the domain name where avenuesnepal.com is the main domain. The URL can even point to other things like Java programs, graphic files ot other resources available on the Internet.
Is it possible to modify, change the text or pictures or add contents in my website after the completion?
YES you can modify the content (text or pictures) for your website through Content Management Panel that we provide to you.
Can you tell me something about payment gateway on e-commerce websites? What type of payment gateways do you use?
There are various ways to take payments online. The first one is PayPal which is an inexpensive way to start taking payments quickly, especially if you don't have a merchant account. With PayPal, your visitors can pay you with a credit card or by sending a payment from their checking account (echeck). PayPal provides a shopping cart and many other free services that are helpful to sites that are starting out. They charge 2.9% +$.30 per transaction and have no start-up fees. The downsides are that PayPal is not a very customizable solution, and it can have a “start-up” feel. However, this is changing and many mainstream sites are now accepting PayPal as more and more people have PayPal accounts. PayPal is inexpensive both because there are no merchant account of payment gateway fees, but also because PayPal provides a very easy way to integrate their shopping cart into your site, which reduces development time.
CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) allows web designers to attach styles (fonts, colors, size, margins, etc.) to HTML documents. It works like a template allowing web developers to define a style for an HTML element and then apply it to as many web pages as they want/need. We can also use styles to display different elements for different media (screen, printers). It simplifies web site maintenance and also helps the way a page displays content for Search Engine robots on the Internet.
You would typically supply us with the written content which can be from your current promotional material but it should be rewritten for a website audience since promotional flyers, etc. don't translate well to the internet. We can give you guidelines for writing the content to make it easier. Alternately, we can arrange to have your content written for you at an additional cost.
A collection of pre-built empty pages with the same theme is known as web template. Templates are made by professional web artists, which ensure the template to have coordinated colors and a great layout. Templates are used to avoid a lot of design work, and it saves both time and money and gives you a professional look at the same time.
Yes, both audio and video can be added on your website design. It can be done with flash other media files, youtube or other similar media link provided by respective website which simply need to be embedded into the web page.
