Modifying Your DataMax Website
All DataMax websites are "templatized" and are designed to provide
entrepreneurs with a very low cost web marketing alternative when first
launching their home-based business. That does not mean you cannot
customize your site and make it one-of-a-kind. In fact, we encourage
you to make he new site "yours" as this will enhance search engine
Modifications During Setup
When your site is initially setup, DataMax allocates one hour of "free"
service time to make certain your site is as you want it. This will
include additions of such things as price lists, service area adjustments,
etc. Necessary periodic changes to addresses, phone numbers, fax
numbers, email address, and other important contact information. Once
your site is set up and operational, it can be
- by using the file manager in your cPanel
- through the WYSIWYG Expressions Web editor (larger
jobs and css editing)
- by DataMax techs at a our design shop rates.
Repairs are made on a no-charge basis and include such things as
correcting a mispelling in your site and fixing a broken page link. To
make a repair, simply complete a Modify / Repair
Fee-Based Changes After Setup
DataMax service fees are $60 per hour (billed in 15 minute increments)
and most updates can be accomplished within a 15 minute billing time
This will include...
- ADDRESS / PHONE / EMAIL CHANGES: This is
easily accomplished using your cPanel, however, if you would like our
technical support staff to make changes to
you contact information and recoding of forms for delivery to a new
email address it is a flat rate fee of $15.00.
- TEXT CHANGES: Again, this is easily
accomplished using cPanel. You can also modify or change text
within your site simply by submitting the text to us via email and
describing what you want to replace. We will format and style the text
to match the existing style on your site. So long as the text changes
are copy/paste and within reason, they can typically be done within a 15
minute time frame for $15.00
- ADDING SOCIAL MEDIA LINKS: We can add social
media links (Facebook, LinkedIn, etc.) at a modest fee of $15.00. You will need
to generate the script code and simply send it to us in a
Technical Support Ticket.
- ELIMINATING PAGES: In some cases, a DataMax
template has product or service pages related to those you do not offer
and you may want such pages eliminated. This is typically a 15 minute
process for $15.00.
- ADDING LINKS: If you are linking to an additional
website. Again, 15 minutes is usually enough time to add links.
- GOOGLE ANALYTICS: Google Analytics is a popular
website analytics service which will provide you with demographic
information about your visitors. Once you have generated the script
code from the Google Analytics site, we will update your site's pages.
$15.00 flat fee.

The following are modifications we will also gladly perform but which are
fee-based and which will generally take longer than 15 minutes.

Using the Microsoft Expressions Web® Editor
Although all DataMax Enterprise Websites are "templatized", we know making
additions and text changes can be sometimes important. You may want to
update price lists, service areas, menu items, etc. on more than just an
occasional basis and most of this can be accomplished with your cPanel
editor. At DataMax, we are always
happy to perform these tasks based on our fee rates.
To make large, structural updates, we recommend using a WYSYWIG (what you see is
what you get) editor, such as Microsoft's Expressions Web®.
The Expressions Web editor is a powerful, free website
editor you can use to make virtually any change to to any non-Word Press website. With
Expressions Web, you will be able to use FTP file transfer
to keep an editable version of your website on your desktop or laptop
your site in any way you want, and quickly publish the changes for all the
world to see. (Additional
