Some of our most frequently asked questions…
How much will a new web site cost?
Every web site is different, and for that reason we do not sell ‘packages’ for a set fee. After a thorough consultation, we will provide you with a detailed quote based on how long we think it will take to build the initial site. We will also provide you with annual maintenance pricing so you know how much to budget for in the future.
How long will it take to get a new web site live?
As every site IS different, there is no set time for any site to go live, although usually the smaller the site, the faster we can have ready – it will also depend on how busy we are – which will directly relate to how soon we can get started! If you already have branding in place – as well as logo, photos, content all ready to go, then this will save a considerable amount of time, but if we are creating everything from scratch, then it will take a bit longer. As a rough guide, a small marketing site with approximately 6 pages will usually take around a month from start to finish, whereas a large e-commerce site can take anything from 3-6 months to get up and running,
How do I register a domain name?
If you don’t already have a domain name – don’t worry about it! We can sort it all out for you – we can check if your chosen domain is available and register it for you, and then we can set up hosting and email accounts and tie the whole lot together – the cost for your domains and hosting will be factored into your initial quote.
How do I get an email address for my business?
Once we have registered your domain name and set up your hosting account, we can configure your email accounts for you and have them up and running within 48hrs – you don’t have to wait until your website is ready to start using your new email addresses.
Will I be able to update the site myself?
YES – if you want to! And NO you don’t have to! If you want to update the site yourself on a regular basis (such as weekly or monthly) then we can set up a full online content management system and give you in-house training on how to edit it. If your site only needs seasonal or annual updates, then you might rather we did it for you – whichever you decide, we will be there to help.
Once the site is live, do I need to do anything else?
Yes – a web site should be a constantly evolving system and as well as updating your content regularly, certain aspects of the site may require updates and system upgrades to ensure it continues to perform at its best, for the biggest audience. We can perform updates/upgrades for you at timed intervals and will build the cost of this into your initial quote.
