FAQ Website Design
Welcome to our website
From registering a new domain to creating a powerful online presence, our team of professionals are here to help you every step of the way. Here are some of the most common questions our clients ask:
Our professional web design team can complete a basic website in approximately 30 days after receiving the content and images for the project. If our team is creating the quality, keyword-focused content and/or high quality images for your website, it can take longer depending on the scope of the project.
Through the wonders of technology, we have many ways to effectively communicate. Most of the time we can handle business over the phone but are always up for a cup of joe if you want to talk shop.
Our team is available to create content and offers additional online marketing services including social media marketing and SEO services to continually expand your online influence. You can find our list of online marketing services here.
You are welcome to select your own hosting provider. We’ll be glad to discuss with you the pros and cons of hosting services to make sure you know how to select a good provider.
We need your image files and text content provided to us in digital formats. Image files need to be in .jpg, .png or .gif formats and text content in a Microsoft Word document or similar format. You can deliver them via email or a flash drive.
Our websites are designed with search engine guidelines in mind. First, all sites are SSL compliant which provides security for your online visitors as they engage with your site. Your SSL certificate will make the search engines happy and protect your visitors.
If you opt to have our team create SEO-focused content for your site, we’ll do the keyword research necessary to know what words and phrases your potential customers are using to find your competitors. Then we’ll create content that will be of interest to your audience that is also favorable to search engines. This gives you a head start and helps build a solid foundation for continuing search engine optimization for your website.
It is a good idea for your website to be re-evaluated over time. Search engines do alter their rules and algorithms and you will want to be certain that your website is kept up to date and complies with those changes.
If we are taking care of the SEO for your site, we will be managing the necessary updates required to keep your site in favor with the search engines. You can do maintenance or a makeover on your site at any time.
No hidden costs. Our web development proposal includes all costs to build your website. We will be clear and adhere to the price. We’ll tell you what to expect and what your investment will be.
Static websites do not require a database. A static website contains web pages with fixed content, unlike dynamic websites that display different content every time the site is visited. For example, if the time changes or the site displays the user’s name, or changes based on some interaction. Static websites are basically informational.
Dynamic websites and dynamic web design are two different creatures. One refers to server-side languages and the latter addresses how a website looks and feels.
There are many different ways to update websites. The method you choose is based on the functionality built into your website and your skills in using the required tools.
If you have a small website consisting of a few pages, we can help you make periodic changes or you can do it yourself. We also offer content creation and other services to keep growing your business online.
If you have a large site involving many products or a lot of working parts, we provide additional ongoing and periodic online management and maintenance services.
Ultimately we hope you’re so thrilled with your new site, you’ll want to keep our team working for you. However, there is no obligation to have us update or maintain the site for you. You are free to do it yourself or have someone else do it for you.
Your website visitors will see some things differently depending on their browser, screen resolution setting and their individual computer settings and toolbars. What they see is also determined by what device they are using: tablet, computer or smartphone.
We design sites with all these variables in mind and preview them in several browser types and resolution settings before publishing. Obviously as technology altars then eventually all websites may need re-evaluation.

However, this isn’t for everyone and if you haven’t requested banners or pop-up ads, we don’t create them. You have total control over the contents and who advertises on your site.
We’re here to create a website that is both appealing and easy to use for your online visitors. If you do not like the design, we’ll keep working until you are.
