Can I have a blog?

Yes. El Valle Consulting provides the EVC Blogger™ for a fee.

On the other hand there are lots of good FREE blogs available. Go to Google and search for "free blogs" and you'll be surprised at the number of good free blogs.

We will be pleased to install links or code for blogging software. Of course, for a fee.

Cookies

What are Cookies?

Cookies are text files downloaded to the user's (the viewer of a website) computer hard disk by a website.  There are cookies which stay on the hard disk (persistent cookies) and there are cookies which are deleted as soon as the user leaves the web site which created the cookie (transient cookies).

Are Cookies Bad?

It is a matter of opinion.  A poll of users indicated that over 65% of users like cookies.  The rest don't.  Our opinion is that cookies are useful.  But, we only use them with a website owner's authorization.


When are Cookies Useful?

Cookies allow a website to create persistent information (data) for a single session or for return sessions.  Persistent information is data that can be reused by a website.  Web pages have only one life:  the instant they are displayed on a computer monitor.  Once a displayed page is replaced by another page, all data on or from that page is lost unless some action is taken; e.g., an e-mail is generated to someone or the data is saved to a file on the web site's server.

When you fill out a form, that data is normally saved to a file on the website's server, not the user's hard disk.  This "server data" can be reused to generate new web pages (called dynamic pages) or the "server file" can be downloaded by the web site's webmaster for use by the owner of the website.

A cookie, on the other hand, is a very small file saved to the user's hard disk.  This "cookie file" can only be read, added, changed or deleted by the website which created the cookie.  These actions can only occur when the user is on-line with the web site that created the cookie.

Very Important:

    Cookies can not steal data from the user's computer.
    Cookies can not create or execute a virus.
    A cookie can only be used by the originating website.


What are Cookies used for?

Storing user IDs and passwords so dumbo users don't have to remember them. (Thank you very much!)
Web site personalization (Hi Mudhead!)
On-line ordering systems (Much easier with cookies.)
Targeted Marketing
Usage tracking (Who's viewing a web site, which pages, how many times do they come back, etc.)

Targeted Marketing and Usage Tracking cause some users to become upset.  That's why reputable websites now provide users the option to either agree to, or to disallow, the receipt of unsolicited e-mail or mail promotions.  A website's policy regarding unsolicited offers is normally posted on theweb site's Privacy Page.  Website's produced by El Valle Consulting will always include a privacy page and related "opt out" choices on forms.  Let's keep the government from meddling with the Internet by conforming to good common sense rules.


Email Services

Am I able to use e-mail with your host services?

Yes.  Depending upon the host plan you choose you can have 1 or more POP3 email accounts with web mail access.  Your email address will be in the form of yourname@yourorg.com.

Your email addresses may, depending upon your hosting plan, also include email aliases in the form of department@yourorg.com.

Email in Web Pages

Your web pages can incorporate your email addresses in either a call to the user's email program or we will create forms that collect user information which is then emailed to you directly by the web server.

Broadcast Emails

We do not provide broadcast email services on our servers. We recommend you use a trusted supplier for broadcast emails. Example: Constant Contact. Be very careful not to be treated as a spammer.
