Advertising

It's probably a lot less expensive than you might expect. If you think that you might be interested in advertising in @LA, click here to find out what you will get and how reasonable it costs.

Web Server Setup

Technique Development can help you set up your own server.

We specialize in Windows NT based servers. Although most of the servers on the Internet today run on UNIX based systems made by manufacturers such as Sun and Silicon Graphics, we believe that in the long term, the lower costs, high speeds and ease of use of PCs will dominate the market. If you already have a significant investment in Windows and/or Novell based equipment and you would like to set up your own server, give us a call.

  • We will configure your computer and properly install the server software - $500 (service charge only, does not include software and hardware).
  • We will work with an Internet Access Provider and your local phone company to help you connect your server to the Internet - $500 (service charge only, does not include software and hardware).
  • Support contracts are available. Call for more information.
  • Additional optional configuration or programming is available at an hourly rate. Call for more information.
  • We do not add a mark up to the prices of any services that we obtain on your behalf. If you hire as to configure or set up a server, we can sell you any specialized hardware or software that you need for our cost. We make our money by providing services, not selling equipment and software.
Contact us for more information about any of these services.
