RSVP AND ART IMAGING & CD-ROM INC. INTRODUCE THEIR NEW INTERACTIVE WEB-PORTFOLIO FOR ARTISTS!

 

The internet is changing the way business is being done. But many artists just donít have the time or money to develop their own web-sites. Or theyíre just too timid about jumping into cyber-space at all. In both cases they may be letting a magnificent opportunity pass them by.

Now, for the first time, you can have a quick, easy and inexpensive presence on the internet. Through RSVP and Art Imaging & CD-Rom Inc., art directors and art buyers all over the world can have instant access to your work.

A) Host name (the name of your server)

B) User ID

C) Password

1) If you are already on the internet, you can contact www.atfreeweb.com to reserve space on their server. Banner-free premium hosting costs $8.95/month. Itís also available for free, but that includes banners and advertising you may not want. While on www.atfreeweb.com you can also access Network Solutions to register a domain name for $35 per year (or $70 for two years). All the instructions are very simple, straightforward and easy to follow. You can easily do this yourself. Once registered, send us the same information A, B and C, as shown above.

2) If you arenít already signed up for the internet or are unsure of the process, we can take care of the entire registration for you for an additional $35.

3) We can put your site up as a sub-domain on Art Imaging & CD-Romís web-site. The cost for this would be $12/month (separate from all design and installation costs. You can include your name as part of the sub-domain address, i.e. Http://www.artscan1.com/JOHN DOE.htm.
