ABCON | INTERNET
Nothing in recent history, perhaps ever, has changed the way we live our daily lives as much as the Internet. Today more messages are transmitted and if one includes credit card transactions, more business is conducted over the Internet than by any other single method. There is hardly a business today that deals with vendors or customers outside it's immediate locality, that is not dependent upon the internet for some aspect of it's business communications. For more basic information and internet background go here.
Internet Service Provider - ISP
An ISP provides connectivity to the Internet. That can be thru a direct dial-up phone line, DSL (Digital Subscriber Line), or Cable Modem access. There are many other terms and flavors of connections to the Internet but we will reserve that to further contact with us. Suffice to say, these are the most common for individual and small business access needs. ABCon can provide extremely inexpensive ($8.25/month billed annually) dial-up service thru our affiliate ISP, Copper.net, Inc. (click here) We can also recommend good DSL or Cable access providers, depending on your location.
Depending on your type of service, you will need some type of modem and/or interface card on your computer to complete the access connection to the Internet. If you are tied into a small Local Area Network (LAN) you can access the internet thru a single computer or proxy server and share that connection thru your network.

Web Design Services
Web Design is perhaps the area where ABCon can offer the most flexibility of all services offered. We can provide anything from a one page basic fact sheet with your own domain (www.your.domain) hosted on our server starting at $100 to complex data base query driven complex sites that range in price in the Tens of Thousands of dollars. We can also provide small businesses with complete licensed web templates, a sort of "soup du jour" for web sites. The cost for this approach can range from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars depending on how much of the work we do and how extensive the final site is. For more on our web design offerings go here.
