FAQs

How much will a website cost me?

As I design all of my work to tailor to your own specific requirements it is hard to put an exact figure onto a project.  The price will be determined by the hosting and domain requirements, complexity of your request and time required to complete your project.  Pricing would usually start at around £300.  Please do feel free to contact me for a quotation.

How long will it take for you to complete my website?

Again as each piece of work is tailored to your own needs the time required to complete a project is dependent on your requirements.  Timescales are also reliant on you providing me with all of the information required for your site e.g. images, text, documents etc.  A very basic site with limited details can be set up in as little as 1-2 weeks, more complex projects will take a little longer.  I know that everyone has an ideal deadline for projects to be completed so I will always aim to complete within the required timescale, however this will be discussed when agreeing a contract of work.

Are there any hidden costs?

No.  Once we agree a piece of work the contract provided will detail all costs.  As and where required this will include any hosting, domain and external costings (I do not provide hosting and domains myself, this will be acquired from hosting providers).  Quotes will always be provided prior to commencing work and agreed before the project commences.  Any additional requirements e.g. additional pages, additional domains, materials etc will be agreed in regards to additional fees before any additional work commences.  This will always be agreed beforehand.

Will I own my website once it is completed?

Yes.  I will hand over all continued rights to yourself once the website is completed.  I would simply ask for credit in regards to design/development and the right to use screenshots or links to site for my own portfolio.

I already have a website, can you help with updating/redesign?

Yes absolutely. Simply get in touch and we can discuss your new requirements.  Email – info@designhousewebsolutions.com 

I do not live near your business, can you still work with me?

Absolutely.  The great thing about web design and development is that I can communicate with clients anywhere in the world if required.  Developing your website can be completed solely with online contact where required.  I do require you to be available for regular update meetings which can be done via email, skype or simply on the phone, whatever you prefer.

Do you provide web hosting and/or domain names?

I believe that you should have complete control over your website once it is completed.  Therefore I do not provide or maintain hosting myself, I will acquire hosting from an external source which will ensure that you will always have access to your hosting, this is built into your agreed costs.  Having your own hosting means that you are not tied to my design company moving forward and have control over updates and maintaining your website.  Same with domains, I will acquire your domain name from a provider and this will also be included in your agreed costs.

Can I also have a business email with my website?

Hosting providers have packages that include providing emails.  We will discuss your requirements and ensure that your hosting provider enables you to access the number of emails that you require.

You use Content Management Systems (CMS) to create websites, will I need special skills to maintain my website and use the CMS?

Not at all.  As part of my package I will provide training in the relevant CMS that I use to develop your website.  This will ensure that you are able to maintain your website moving forward and will only take 30 minutes max.  This allows you to take control of your website and easily make changes as and when required.

Will my website be visible in search engines?

I will ensure that your website is added to relevant search engines e.g. google, bing, Yahoo! this will include registration to enable you to view statistics such as the number of visitors to your site.
