Bell Atlantic is offering 90 days free of its Shared Web Hosting solution and $200 off the normal installation fee to users of FrontPage 98, the latest version of Microsoft's Web site creation and management tool. Web site creators can take advantage of the promotion by using the Bell Atlantic special offer described in every retail package of FrontPage 98 software.
"Bell Atlantic provides businesses with a very cost-effective means to establish a professional business presence on the Internet's World Wide Web, with a complete line of quality, affordable hosting services," said Pete Miller, director-Web Services for Bell Atlantic Internet Solutions. "Ensuring that Bell Atlantic's hosting customers can create and manage their sites using FrontPage 98 adds that much more value to the Bell Atlantic product line."
Bell Atlantic Internet Solutions helps businesses make their presence known on the World Wide Web in a variety of ways. Web sites are hosted in Bell Atlantic's world-class data center in Reston, Va., with high-speed, DS-3, redundant Internet connections ensuring that customers can reach a company's Web site quickly.
All networking and data center tasks associated with running, maintaining and upgrading both Web servers and the software are supplied by Bell Atlantic Internet Solutions, which staffs the center 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Web site creators can update their site's content anytime, day or night, and receive a weekly report on their Web site's activity, backed by 24x7 technical support. Graphics, audio, video, CGI e-mail and other leading edge capabilities - and now complete FrontPage 98 functionality - are fully supported.
"More and more companies have been asking Bell Atlantic to support Web site development and maintenance by teams separated by geography or organization," said Bell Atlantic's Miller. "FrontPage is a well-designed Web tool that enables us to meet this demand. And because FrontPage integrates with Microsoft Office, it enables our customers to focus on creating content and to publish the information on a professional Web site with minimal fuss."
Tools like Microsoft FrontPage 98 are making it easier and less expensive to create and manage a company's Web site. Web pages can be created using a familiar "point and click" interface and can incorporate a wide variety of interactive features and functions. All the coding is done "behind the scenes," so the author can focus on the site's look and content.
Publishing the Web site on the Internet can be accomplished simply by clicking a "publish" button on the FrontPage screen. A link will be established automatically with Bell Atlantic Internet Solutions - assuming that is who the author has chosen to host the Web site.
