Website Design Services – Frequently Asked Questions
We are pleased to answer any questions you may have about our services. Here are some of the most frequently asked ones.
The costs for our services are explained on our Home page. There may be some third party costs. For example: domain name, hosting, SSL certificate. These are covered below.
Absolutely. Your site will use a "responsive" design which means it will respond to the type of device it is being viewed on. Your site will look perfect on small mobile phones, tablets, laptops and desktop PCs.
We divide the price into three payments which are approximately equal. The first payment is made after the contract is signed. The second is made after we show you a mockup of the home page of your site and you approve. The third is made after you see the completed site and want it to go live.
If you have an existing website, we will reuse your existing domain name. If you do not have a domain name, we will help you register one. The cost is about $8.88/year. This is payable directly by you to the Internet Registrar.
If you already have suitable hosting, then we will use it. If not, we will help you obtain it. Economy hosting costs about $8.99/month. This is payable directly by you to the hosting provider.
An SSL certificate is not required for most sites, but it is recommended. If you don't have one, browsers may label your site "Not Secure." We will help you get one if you decide you want it. The cost is about $6/year, payable directly by you to the certificate authority.
A lot depends on you. We sign a standard contract and then you make an initial payment. After that, we wait for you to provide us with the text that and photos that go with each page . Once we have everything in hand, we work very quickly. Some websites can be completed in as little as two weeks.
Because you know your business best, we ask you to provide the text and any photos you want on your new website. If photos are not available, we can provide stock photography where needed at a modest cost.
Yes, but you will need to learn how to use WordPress, and some technologies it uses such as Gutenberg blocks and the page builder used by your theme. It will take some time to learn. You will have all of the logons necessary if you want to do this.
