It is not always
possible or preferable to display all your web site content online.
If you have manuals,
specifications or other lengthy documents that want to share with visitors
to you site, you can offer them as downloads. This has the added advantage
that there is a process of giving something "free," that appears
generous and helpful.
can do this simply by installing a document as a Word file (.doc) on
your website server, and putting a link to it from a web page. If you
wish to control the format of the document (for printing purposes) or
prevent the document being edited, then it is recommended that you use
Acrobat to prepare the document. This can be read by anyone using
the free reader software from Adobe.
Large files can
be compressed, reducing dowload time, using the software from Winzip.
If you have software
as part of your range of products or services, you can offer them for
download. This can be done in a manner as above, sent as an email attachment
or sold through an online shop. If you have no online shop, or wish
to avoid the technical grief you can offer them for download through
a third party sales agent such as RegisterHouse.
We can integrate
paid download systems into your website, as part of our integrated web
site services. If this is of interest please contact us .
