The long bit....
It's been stated throughout this web site, however, to bring it all together.....
3DC.org.uk is the trading arm of InBishopton.org.uk, a community venture and 3DC is better known as a social enterprise company, which means that all the profits are re invested to strengthen and support our aims.
Here is the premise, groups and small businesses need to get online! (If you just said "no they don't" then you are wrong, but we'll let others tell you why!) For most groups and small businesses it can be expensive and a hit or miss affair (mainly miss!) to get a good web site and start your online experience!
We know of many groups and businesses that have spent £'000 and went no where.
We are a mixture of geeky and business do gooders who thought we could help! We have the know how, we've been here since 1996 and we've helped develop many web sites, we're in and about the internet everyday! So we asked ourselves, "what would we want from someone when we were starting out?"
So what we give you is a web site, hosted and supported. The cost is £50 per annum and that includes your UK domain name.
Now your saying "how can we do this for next to nothing or nothing? What's the catch?" It's a good question and one we would ask too if we were in your position!
We do make a profit on the project, but the profit margin supports our technical set up allowing us to extend our services to others. We understand the market and we can reasonably predict what support requirements will come up in the first few months, (we've been doing this for a while). So we can do it and we do do it! (too many do's, we know but we are geeks at heart)
We have projects near and dear to our hearts and since we are in Renfrewshire we support groups and businesses here. Usually free too!
That's us.... if we haven't answered your question feel free to ask one. Surf the site, we all had a hand in creating it, but that story could fill a web site on it's own.
The quick bit....
A quote that inspires us from the late great Arthur C. Clarke (well we are geeks)
The only way to discover the limits of the possible is to go beyond them into the impossible.
