I think there is a potential for problems as you both grow. For instance: now what if they do a bad job and people think yours is the same company? I think it is good though that you are aware of this.

When you look at the map you can see how a radius of 15 miles makes your service areas overlap. That really isn't too big of an area either. Which I mean there is a potential for problems.

I think sooner or later someone will be sending the other a letter on this issue.

Hi Andy,

You should be able to do it. If not, there are plenty of lcos on this forum that are web savvy and could offer you help.

So try it out and see how you are able to do.

A couple people on here said they didn't like godaddy.com to much. And to try afmu.com or yahoo.com for a hoster.

I think sooner or later someone will be sending the other a letter on this issue. *What do you think a letter should include??? *Should maybe I contact them and see if maybe we can work together...perhaps refer customers to each other??? *I just don't know and would appreciate any ideas or suggestions.

I do offer my apologies for taking this totally off topic. *Perhaps you could answer me in a new topic so we can get this one back on track???

The more I talk about this the more concerned I get
Where did you find their founded info.? *I have searched the site and can't see it. EDIT ok Duhhh I found it...*I did see on their employment area that they have been in operation for four years...

Looks like we both started up the same year. *It also looks like that maybe they started up with more funds available and have had better growth than we have...

From the site it appears that they have employees and crews while we are still just my husband, son, and me.

I do know that we had our website first...but that doesn't help me feel any better.

I too think we are a little close for comfort. *You make a real good point about what if they do a bad job or vice versa and it gives the other a bad reputation...

I too think that it is good that at least we know and wonder if they know about us???

I just don't know what steps I should take to address this???

What if this were to happen to you??? *what would you do as a LCO if someone opened up another LCO at the same time as you with a VERY similiar name???

You mentioned that sooner or later one or the other would be sending a letter out to address this issue...

What do you think a letter such as this should include??? *I keep thinking that maybe we could network and perhaps send customers that are outside our service areas to each other but I don't know???

What I do know is that I have taken this thread totally off topic so maybe when you answer you can start another thread???

That way I can get the advice and suggestions that I really would appreciate and this thread can get back on topic...

The more I think about this the more concerned I get...

Hey There Andy,

I have used godaddy.com for the last few years. While I can't help you with how easily a template from TeamGopher can be uploaded because even though I think TeamGophers web templates are awesome I felt like I wanted to do something original...I can say I have never had any problems with godaddy.coms service. Their rates are good and I have never had any problems updating and uploading my website that I created in dream weaver...

Now I did look at their templates they offered but again I didn't really see any I liked so I opted to go with my own design simple as it is

I would recommend them even though I think others here have had some bad experiencs...

Godaddy has always worked well for me

Thanks for all the help. I actually do have Dreamweaver, but I don't have a ton of experience with it. Is there a way I could just take a whole web template from this site and upload it into dreamweaver as a whole package so I can edit certain aspects and make it my own? Every time I try to open something, it appears I have to do it 1 page at a time, but maybe I'm not doing it right?

Thanks,

ANDY

No... you have to edit one page at a time... there are tricks to doing things on the "server side", but if you're just learning Dreamweaver, then you're still a ways away from SSI stuff.
