1. Online Booking Form

Increase Your Covers!
Now you can take table bookings online using our booking form. Make no mistake, this is about increasing the business opportunities at your restaurant! We strongly believe that this feature can increase the number of pre-booked covers you are handling at your restaurant.

How to make a Booking Form
It's very simple. The customer fills out the form on your website, clicks the [Submit] button and you get a table booking request email message immediately. The table booking email contains the date/time and the number of seats required, along with the customer contact details (email, phone, name etc).

Weddings, Events and Corporate Functions
Perhaps you are thinking you might receive the occasional booking for a romantic table for two? In fact, based on our experience and the feedback from our restaurateurs, the biggest users of the online booking systems are those who are organising events. It's ideal for:

  • Engagement Parties
  • Wedding Receptions
  • Formal Receptions
  • Business Parties, including the all-important 'Company Christmas Dinner Party'
  • Company Conferences
  • Business Meetings
  • Business Presentations

    2. Food and Wine Menu Upload

    We offer a unique website document upload feature for your restaurant site, whereby you can upload Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint and PDF documents to your internet site.

    Upload your own documents to the internet at QuickontheNet.com | Microsoft Word: DOC | Microsoft Excel: XLS | Microsoft PowerPoint: PPT | Adobe Acrobat: PDF | Rich Text Format: RTF | Plain Text: TXT

    This means you can present your food menu and/or wine menu on your restaurant website as a PDF document (or Word document, if you prefer). All of the photos, graphics and logos contained in your menu will be displayed online. This internet feature is particularly attractive to the corporate sector, when business people are shopping around, comparing prices and looking for 'set menu' options.

    3. Photo Gallery

    As you know, advertising your business in the local media is very expensive. Regardless of the costs, the classified ads along with your entry in the yellow pages will never capture the spirit of your restaurant or bar.

    We show you how to create your own photo gallery and give your website visitors a guided tour of your restaurant and its private function rooms.

    At QuickontheNet.com, it's so easy to add pictures of your restaurant. You can make a listing of thumbnail images (mini-pictures) and brief descriptions of the photos, which link or click-through to large pictures and full descriptions of the images.

    4. Video Gallery (Completely Free)

    The internet world is going absolutely crazy about online video and now you can be part of it. This is your opportunity to unleash your creative potential. It's also an opportunity to make money, so read on to find out how to generate income from this unique business idea.

    It's fast, simple and easy. We provide the online toolkit for you to embed video clips within your web pages and this means that you can easily integrate the playback capability from any of the world's leading free service providers, including:

  • YouTube
  • GoogleVideo
  • YahooVideo
  • StupidVideos
  • Metacafe
  • Vimeo
  • iFilm
  • The list goes on and on...

    To put it all in a nutshell, online film means movement and action; and that means that people will sit up and pay attention to what you have to say!

    5. Online Branding

    Remember, there are a number of ways you can apply your restaurant branding to your new website. Yes, you can of course insert your business logo, but it is the extra touches that really make the difference, like uploading your own background, graphics and photos. You can take it a stage further by branding your menu buttons and typestyle, and use your own domain (web address).

    Your website should be an extension of the eating experience at your restaurant, so now is the time to use it to your full advantage and get more customers through the door.

    6. Search Engine Optimisation

    All of our restaurant websites are indexed by all major search engines, including:

  • Google
  • Yahoo
  • MSN
  • Dogpile

    We have designed our restaurant site builder in such a way that each web page on your restaurant website can have its own page listing on a search engine index. This can give your catering business a significant amount of exposure on the search engines and pull in more traffic from business people and foodies alike.

    7. Job Board (Optional - No Extra Cost)

    How much money do you spend on recruitment? How much time do you spend trying to find the right staff for your catering business?

  • Head Chef
  • Trainee Chef
  • Head Waiter
  • Experienced Bar Staff
  • Dish Washer

    At Quick on the Net, we recommend that you post your job roles on your site using our unique gallery feature. When you create your own gallery of jobs, you can sort your jobs in any order you like and turn them on/off with ease.

    Job seekers in the catering industry can view your job opportunities and apply online. By the way, we also offer recruitment website design solutions.

    9. Domain Name (Web Address)

    What is a domain name?
    This is your unique web address for you catering business e.g. www.myrestaurantname.com. It is estimated that there are more than 60 million registered domain names. If you want an international flavour, go for a .COM, otherwise country codes such as .CA for Canada and .CO.UK for the United Kingdom are widely used top level domains.

    For domain registration, check out our preferred suppliers. Register yours today!

    If you are purchasing your 'own domain' to use with your restaurant website design at www.QuickontheNet.com, we recommend 123-reg, where you can buy the following types of web address extensions:

  • .CO.UK United Kingdom
  • .ORG.UK United Kingdom
  • .BIZ Universal
  • .COM Universal
  • .INFO Universal
  • .NET Universal
  • .ORG Universal
  • .TV Universal

    You do not need to buy a web hosting solution from your domain name provider, as your website will be hosted by QuickontheNet.com as part of our service. However, you may wish to buy a business email package with your domain, so that you can create business email accounts e.g. info@myrestaurantname.com.

    How to Register a Domain Name

    Enter your domain name precisely (after www.) and click ‘GO’.

  • Select your preferred domain name(s) and then click 'add to basket'.
  • Click 'continue' (top right).
  • To use our website service, please select 'Domain only' - you do not need to buy web hosting (because we are hosting your website).
  • Then, sign-up with 123-reg (for a new customer account) and register your domain name(s).
  • It's fast, simple and easy!

    Domain and Email Hosting

    Once again, enter your domain name precisely (after www.) and click ‘GO’.

  • Click 'add to basket'.
  • Click 'continue' (top right).
  • Please select ‘Add email accounts’ – if you wish to add email accounts on the back of your domain name e.g. sales@mynewdomainname.com.
  • Remember to add a separate email account address for each name that you require. For example, sales@ and contact@ are 2 different email address accounts.
  • Please note that the email service is supported by 123-reg and not QuickontheNet.com (we provide free help and support with your website hosting).
  • Finally, sign-up with 123-reg (for a new customer account) and register your domain name(s) and email account(s).

    It is important that you keep your 123-reg username and password handy, because you/we need to set up your domain when the registration is completed.
