Few use the telephone book anymore. If a church doesn’t have a website, people may not know it exists. Additionally, these days, it’s not enough to even have a website! The website must look good, work well, be mobile ready, and have engaging features. If not, people simply “click away.” Furthermore, for a church, the website needs to be used to minister to others. The Church Webmaster specializes in websites, and features, to help run your church and minister to your congregation.
The purpose of this offer is to bring the high cost of owning and operating a website, for small churches, down to affordable. Presented is a Premium Content Management Website, with multiple color (5) and background choices (71), plus "starter" features necessary to operate the website for your church. In every area of the website development process, high mark-up costs have been stripped to facilitate affordability, simplify the process, and speed the deployment of your new website. As your church and website needs grow, the Joomla Content Management System (CMS) structure is already in place and awaits the installation of new features for ministry (See Great Ideas).
TIP: Take a serious look at this offer! YOU will save a lot!

The Network Service Agreement Recommendation
A COMMON MISTAKE many website owners make is to let the website just "take care of itself" once it's up and running. Regardless of how technically advanced your website is, every website needs regular maintenance. UPDATES ARE VITAL . . . If you're using a Content Management System, like Joomla or WordPress (and you really should be), then it is vitally important to keep your website updated with the latest security patches and software updates. There's absolutely nothing worse than having your website hacked! You don’t have to have an important website or running e-commerce for hackers to want to break into your website. Being pro-active on your security and software updates are not the only important reasons to have a good Website Maintenance Plan. Here are some others: 1) To keep people interested with fresh material, new products, services, solutions, and engaging features; 2) To keep the website working well by fixing broken external and internal links, plus insuring installed components are working properly; 3) To keep up with changing web technology; and 4) To maintain search engine rankings; just to name a few.

Your website is often the first contact and impression for your church. If it is not safe and secure, critical relationships with members can be compromised. Most hackers use automated tools to find vulnerable websites. It matters not if you are a small business or a non-profit, threats come in many forms – infecting a website to spread malware to your visitors, stealing customer information, like names and email addresses, stealing credit card and other transaction information, adding the website to a botnet of infected websites, and even hijacking or crashing your website. Unprotected websites are a security risk to all who use it. A hack allows the spread and escalation of malware, attacks on other websites, and even attacks against national interests and infrastructure. In many attacks, hackers will try to harness the combined power of thousands of computers and sites to launch the attacks, and the attacks rarely lead directly back to the hackers.
