Frequently asked questions
This is a great question to ask and you should ask it of any web design and development firm you are considering. Many firms will farm out work to freelancers or interns. Some firms give little or no access to client’s who want to speak directly with their designers or developers. Our clients work directly with our tight knit crew of 9. Who that will be depends on your project needs and what stage of the process you are in during the project. The Founder, Mike also stays involved from start to finish.
YES! Everything that we build will be 100% owned by you. Most of our clients stay with us for the life of the website. Our team is just irresistible that way. But if for any reason you decide you want to take your site to another hosting service and get another company to service the site, we will happily assist you in making the transition as effortlessly and efficiently as possible. The website is yours after all, and we want you to take it wherever you go.

The Founder, Mike Lannen, formed Eternity in his dorm room at Champlain College in 2000. He believes in not only building websites, but in building relationships that last a life-time, and then some, hence the name. What few people know, is that Mike wore Calvin Klein ETERNITY cologne through college and when trying to come up with a tradename to register, the bottle caught his eye and he ran with Eternity Web Development.
