Patient Guide How will new patients find my web site?

You need to promote your website actively. Online promotion usually means registering
the site with all the relevant search engines, so people can "find" you. Offline promotion
is even more important, and you need to tell everybody about it!

Print the website address ( URL ) on your business cards and your stationery and
display it in your waiting room .We will be registering your address with search
engines so that new patients can find you on the net. If required we can provide
additional professional marketing advice to encourage your patients to use
your website.

Web Traffic Will I be able to find out how many people visit my site?

Yes, we provide statistical reports of number of visitors also we provide details like return frequency etc.

Web Design How do I obtain photographs for use on my site?

Your website will look most effective when it includes photography of your staff, facilities and equipment. In order for it to
look its best we recommend that you use a professional photographer to take these pictures. Your Practice Online uses
high-resolution Hewlett-Packard scanners when adapting photos for the web. Image services are available to correct
photographs or remove unwanted items in a picture.


Update Website How often can I update my website?

As often as you like! The more you do it the better it is as medical science is changing rapidly you would need to
keep abreast of the changes and we will be glad to give professional assistance for the same

Practice Web Site Do I get an individual website or a group practice website?

A website can be created for a group practice with space and customized options for physicians
within the practice. Individual physicians will have their own web address with their own personal web
pages to provide their own material.

Email Account  I have an e-mail account with another provider. How do I move my e-mail messages to the
Your Practice Online Communications Center?

You can forward e-mail messages from your old account to your new Your Practice
Online Communications Center e-mail account. Refer to your current Intenet Service Provider's documentation for
details about forwarding messages. We can arrange to transfer e-mails to your old account.

Domain Web Address How do .com, .net, and .org differ?

These are the letters that appear at the end of your Web address. The most familiar are .com (commercial entities, such as companies),
.net (network administration), and .org (usually but not always used for non-profit organizations and institutions).

Other common domains are .gov, .mil, and .edu. These have specific requirements for registration. Other suffixes are
specific to countries, for example .au represents Australia.


Domain Name Register How long does it take to get a Web address after I sign up?

Your Practice Online submits your Web address (domain name) application immediately. You are notified by
e-mail if your application is completed. Our Web address search will not show that your Web address is available until
after the registration has been processed. This generally takes fewer than 24 hours, but can take up to 5 business days
if there is a problem with your registration.


Renew Domain Once my Web address is registered, do I need to renew it?

Your registration is for one (1) year. Near the end of the registration period, you will be given a chance to renew it.
If you no longer want the address, you may choose not to renew. Same applies to the web space as well.


Custom Logo Design Can you create a custom logo for my practice that can be used on my site?

Yes. For an additional charge, the Your Practice Online design team can create a custom logo for your practice.

Website Development  How long does it take to build my site once you have my information? Do I get to review my Web site before your design team finishes it?


Once we understand your design parameters, we will then create a custom template or shell design of your web page.
It will be posted online for you to review. We'll discuss likes, dislikes, possible changes, additions, and modifications to
the initial design. It's important at this stage to get the design exactly as you want it because it will serve as the style
template for the remainder of the site. It takes 10 days for this initial design

Once the template design meets your approval, it's time to move on to the construction phase of the project.
Your design template, which was initially created as a single image, is now converted into HTML code.
It would take 3-5 days from here.
