We offer a website we call a microsite with 1 to 9 pages just for you on our server and it includes having your domain name point to the pages inside the microsite. Receive a free domain name and company-branded e-mail account with your Microsite. Keep reading to learn more about how you can sign up today and be on the web.

Be on the internet with a web site for
only 75’ to $1.19 per day!

By going with a microsite package you don't need to make your own website. You do not need to know about web design or have all the software and hardware that go into creating a site. Your cost is low but you will have a space on the internet for one year or more to show your product and let the world know how to get in touch with you to place orders or ask for information. 

Advertising and marketing on the web present opportunities.
If you elect not to go online, you'll miss them.

Send us your marketing materials – We can get started with as little information as a few notes about your business and a business card with a logo. Our designers will use this information as a point of departure for creating an attractive, custom web site just for your business. Feel free to provide additional marketing materials such as a Yellow Pages ad, flyer, brochure, newspaper ad, logo or pictures and we'll incorporate this content into your new web site.

You will have a space that is your area on our server and your domain name will point to the index page in your area and when someone types in your domain address they will go to your homepage. Very professional.

Because all successful advertising incorporates both appeal and relevance, the ability to guide users to additional relevant content provides the advertiser with a great advantage.

Test the Waters
By ordering a mircosite from us you can test the waters at a low cost to see how your business needs an internet position. This will help you plan a strategic path for the future.

No other advertising or marketing medium can
put your company in front of more people.

We will register your domain name (if it is available) for one year included with each microsite and have it point to your home page in your  microsite. You will be able to add your domain URL to all your business cards, letterheads and brochures to send customers to your web site.

Your website will have what is called domain forwarding or domain masking. Your domain will direct your WWW address to an existing site. With masking, users don't see the underlying address; only what they type in. We will set this up for you and this is included in our price.

No ad banners or pop-ups on your site.

The domain name we register for you is yours and is not registered in our name. You can take it with you to any host or registrar you choose in the future if you leave our microsite. We choose the domain registrar we use to register your name which is included in your package while you are signed up with us for a microsite.

We include only one of the following domain name extensions in your microsite package:

(.com) - (.net) - (.org) - (.info)

Only one is included in each microsite package. If you want another domain name extension not listed above such as (.biz - add $5 more)and (.us - add $10 more) we will credit the amount we pay for one of the above domain name extensions to your cost and help you register the name.

It is easy to keep your site up to date!

As part of our microsite plan, a website professional will make updates to your website on a monthly basis and one change per month is included. If you need more there is a charge based on what is done. There is a minimum charge of $10 for updating after the free one each month.

You never need to worry about not being able to get in touch with your designer for updates or changes to your web site. Our staff is available Monday through Friday for questions, consultations and technical support.

Let us help focus your band values and
show the world your product or service!

Each microsite package above includes $40 of banner advertising with the KWG™ for your knife, sword or cutlery business. You supply us with the banner or for a fee we will make a custom banner for you. Plus you will receive an additional 10% discount for all additional banner advertising (banner impressions only) placed with the KWG™ for your microsite package if space is available. The free included $40 of banner advertising must be used in the same year as your website is running and if you do not use the included credit it expiries at the end of each year of webhosting with us. If you don't use the credit it is like throwing away $40!

We help remove the "in" from "invisible" in a short time!

Each package above includes 10 email forwarding to one email account that you already have, such as your AOL, MSN or Comcast email account. Your email will be professional such as yourname@yoursite.com. You will receive the company-branded email sent to your domain name just as normal email and your customers will send you email using your domain address in a normal fashion.

Your microsite package enables you to create your very own, instantly recognizable
e-mail address – e.g., "
myname@mydomainname.com".

Custom Knife Makers
If you’re a custom knife maker seeking exposure, CutlersCove.com can help. We provide an affordable way to generate Internet exposure and quality traffic. We do not take responsibility for sales. Works may be purchased through negotiations with the maker through e-mail or other contact information. Buy button links to the maker's Pay Pal account may be added for an additional charge. In addition to the mircosite, members are listed in the KWG directory if they qualify. 

99.9% Uptime Guarantee for our hosting

Deposits and Payment
50% payment is due at contract signing, with 50% due before your microsite goes live. Visa, MasterCard, Discover/Novus, PayPal, checks and money orders accepted in USA Dollars$. You must give us all the text and photos so we can finish your website and make it live to the world no less than 30 days after you make a deposit. We require this so we can register your domain name before someone else does, get you going on the internet and so you can get the orders coming in.

Yearly Renewals
Renewals must be paid in full 10 days before the anniversary date each year. Example: Your microsite goes live on Nov. 18 then your renewal will need to be paid by Nov. 8 the next year. Your site will be removed on Nov. 19 if not paid because it was due on Nov. 8 and late on Nov. 18. This is required to give us time to renew your domain name, make any changes to keep your site live on our network and keep our prices low.

Prices are subject to change. All microsites must be knife, sword, cutlery or outdoor related.

Refund Policy
A refund in full is available before we register a domain name and/or start the design of your website. After we start either there is no refund. The hosting that is included in the yearly microsite package is not refundable because it is part of the total package. No cash refunds after your site starts or goes live.

If you need any other services outside what is included above let us know. We may be able to provide the service you need and our prices are always reasonable.

Let's be creative
If the suggestions for microsites listed above are not of any interest to you, we can work together to come up with a powerful promotion web site that will get results! We understand the challenges business face. Give us a call or email and let us develop a program that works for your business!

These Rates are effective October 1, 2009 and subject to change without notice.
