We also setup and customize Joomla, an award-winning content management system (CMS), which enables you to build websites and powerful online applications. A content management system is software that keeps track of every piece of content on your website, much like your local public library keeps track of books and stores them. Content can be simple text, photos, music, video, documents, or just about anything you can think of. A major advantage of using a CMS is that it requires almost no technical skill or knowledge to manage. Since the CMS manages all your content, you don't have to.

From using Joomla as our base system, we have developed a City and County CMS website system with many of the pages premade. All that needs to be done to have a fully functioning site is adding your information into the pages from a WYSIWYG editor which anyone with basic word processing knowledge can use. There are many templates to choose from to give your site the look and feel you want. For more details and pricing for this package, Click Here.
For full blown eCommerce stores, we setup and customize osCommerce Online Merchant, an online shop e-commerce solution. It features a rich set of out-of-the-box online shopping cart functionality that allows store owners to setup, run, and maintain online stores with minimum effort and with no costs, fees, or limitations involved.

Steps In Developing Your WebsiteWith Computer Sharks USA by your side, designing, developing, and maintaining a website to fit your needs is very simple and easy with us doing all the hard work for you. You just have to pick out a design, think of a domain name, and give us the text and photos you want to have on the site.
The process of developing and getting your website online is as follows;
- Choosing a design that fits your needs

- Choosing and registering a domain name which reflects your business name or website contents. A domain name is simply a name that identifies an Web site. For example, "microsoft.com" is the domain name of Microsoft's web site.
- Making an account with a web hosting service to host your site so people can access it
- Adding Meta Tag information so that people can find your website
- And finally but very important, maintaining and keeping your content fresh
Domain Name Registration
Through the years that we have been designing and developing websites, we have used and researched many domain registration companies. The companies we have used were excellent companies and were reasonable priced but as time with them went on, their prices kept rising. The last company we used started out at under $9.00 per year and within a few years raised their prices to over $16.00 per year. So we went searching again for a company with reasonable prices and found Go Daddy.Computer Sharks USA is experienced in finding the right domain name for your website. So if you get frustrated in finding a name or want us to find a name for you from the start, we will do all the work in finding the right name and register it for you for $19.99.

Registering Your Domain Name
We reccommend Go Daddy as your choice to register your domain name. The hardest part of registering a domain name is getting a name that is easy for your website visitors to remember and one that reflects your business name or website contents. Getting the right domain name takes a lot of time and thinking. So start thinking of a catchy name and use the search box below to see if it is available. If it is not available, keep thinking and keep searching until you find one.
