Banner Ads *

We are also offering Banner ads on pages within The Marin Directory. These are the small boxed ads which will link to your page, visually directing viewers to your site. They can be place on any of the inside listing Marin Directory pages available. We can build these for you or use your supplied ad. These are available on a yearly contract, for low as $15. per month, or 150 per year. Contact us for more information and pricing.

*We may add national affiliate banner ads to "pay the bills" but will gladly "bump" them for local banner ads.

What's in a name...? ...the price!
You have two choices when it comes to your Web address name (URL). If you are looking for low cost, (about $25. per month, depending on the size of your site) you can have an address as"yourname", we do this for you.

If you want www."yourname".com the price goes up. This requires registering your name with a company called InterNic, or other similar companies. First you find out if the name is available by searching the name(s) you wish to use. You currently pay InterNic approx.$100 for the first two years and $50 per year thereafter to hold onto the name.
To host a "virtual name" will require a separate virtual name account through an internet provider which will run approximately $40-50 per month. You will need to search, register and setup an virtual internet account via InterNic & your provider will bill you separately.
