We’re working with to create our company’s holiday greeting. Their ecards are just a video file embedded into an HTML webpage – a one-page website. Nothing fancy and no special technical requirements.

The samples on their site are the same as what they provide us at the end of the project. Here’s one you can check out.

I just want to confirm if we are able to host the ecard on our own website or if we should order their Temporary Ecard Hosting service instead.

Let me know as soon as possible please.

Our ecards are one-page websites. They are a video (the ecard) embedded into a single webpage - just like a video on a YouTube page or a video on your company’s homepage. And just like those, they have a web address (a URL) you can use in a browser to find them.
