Frequently Asked Questions
Below you'll find frequently asked questions about internet & website related issues, and their answers.
- How long does it take to have a web site designed?
The time frame is determined by the size of your web site, the complexity of your site design, and our current client design schedule.
- Will my site work in different web browsers?
Yes! Although we favor Mozilla Firefox for it’s strong support of web standards, we do test your web site in the latest versions of many of the most popular web browsers, for optimum cross-browser compatibility.We develop web sites primarily with the Firefox and Internet Explorer in mind, but check compatibility with Chrome, Safari, and Opera, as well.
- What is the web site design and development process?
We have defined 6 primary steps in the web site design and development process. From gathering initial information, to the creation of your web site, and finally to maintenance to keep your web site up to date.
1. Information Gathering
5. Testing and Delivery
- How long will it take to finish my web site?
There’s no exact answer to this, as the time will vary based on the complexity of the project, how quickly you respond to requests for feedback and approval of certain stages, as well as how large your web site is. For the most part, however most standard web sites are completed within 4-6 weeks. Again, this depends on how large of a web site it is, as well as timely communication and feedback between both of us.
- Why can't I find my web site in the search engines?
Once your site has been submitted to the top Search Engines they may require several weeks, or even months to actually spider and list your web site in their directory. How fast your site is listed depends on each individual Search Engines database update schedule. Watch your server traffic logs for visiting spiders. We suggest you use Guaranteed Search Engine Submit. Your site can be listed on AOL, MSN, and Overture in a couple of days.
- What are the maintenance costs on a website?
Once a site is completed there are no maintenance costs associated with the site. There are however, web hosting expenses. Web hosting expenses give you an internet presence 24/7. It also allows you to accept e-mails from prospects and clients.
- What’s the difference between web design and web development?
Web design is the process of creating a look and feel for a website. Web development looks beyond this to the functionality and is concerned with questions like: how user friendly is it? Does it serve its primary purpose? How good is the content? Does it draw and keep visitors? Does it evoke the required action? Is it search-engine friendly? Web design on its own can in fact be hugely detrimental to a site’s objectives. A good website takes many factors into consideration and not just the first impression or visual effect.
- Does we offer #1 ranking guarantee?
No, we don’t nor anyone else can as no one can control search engines and its algorithm, it keeps on updating.
- What is web hosting?
Web hosting is a monthly fee that you pay to have your site accessible on the Internet. We can provide web hosting for our clients.
