We want to make sure you are completely satisfied when you use one of our affiliates. If at any time you have a complaint with one and have not been able to resolve it, please let us know.
Before we put ourselves on a directory, we always check to make sure the directory is not just a "link-generator". We try to list ourselves on a directory that will provide subject-related information to our visitors.
NOTE: Links on a website should always be checked to make sure they still work. That will avoid the possibility of website pages not being indexed by search engines or frustrating your website visitors.
This page represents those organizations that we have connected with as a small business. While we obviously are not responsible for any actions of the organizations or businesses listed, we do continuously verify the reliability of their links and listings. If you find a link that is broken, please email us.
Based on our working experience with various web hosting companies, we decided to affiliate with West Host. While they may cost just a little more than those "$3.95 per month" web host companies, they have the applications people want to use on their website, most are free and they keep their software versions current.

We are listed with the following internet directories. These directories are free for you to be listed as well since they are not limited to just the web design industry. Note: Some of these directories may require you provide a link on your website for them to continue to keep your link open on theirs. Depending on your comfort level, always check a directory first to see if they require a link back and then decide if you want to list with them.
ItsWebRelated, a web design and website industry-related directory.
We are also featured in the National Website Design Directory. This is another web designer directory and does require a link-back to maintain a listing.
Merchant Circle, an excellent free directory that any business or organization should register with. You can post messages, use email, post on a blog, create coupons, and interact with other members.
