Lots of people contact us on a daily basis to ask about setting up a web site, or the possibility of modifying their existing website. Many wish to arrange for us to design a brand new website or move their website to a different web server. Perhaps they have queries concerning either existing domain names or new domain names. We have listed below for you some of the most frequently asked questions in connection with website design.
If you have a question that is not answered here, or you want to talk to us about any aspect of your website design, setting up or changing your web site, web hosting or website maintenance or domain name registration please feel free to contact us to discuss your requirements.
The timescale of a website design project is often dictated by the client. If you have a deadline in mind we will endeavor to meet it for you. The most common delay in the creation and completion of a new website is waiting for content (text/images) to be sent to us by the client. We do are best to finish all projects within 30 days, but once again our time frame is based on our customers needs.
In the majority of cases a meeting isn't necessary and most of our websites are generally completed with contact via email and telephone only. We place suggested website designs onto the Internet in a private place where only yourselves and us can view the content. We then liaise with you regularly to discuss the web designs in order that the website design and functionality is exactly as you wish.
We fully support any website we design and are always available should you encounter any problems or require any enhancements. We offer web site maintenance so that your website need never get out of date. Please see our services tab to view a list of all our services.
You may move your website to another web hosting service at any time. Once your website design has been completed, we send you a copy of the website on cd. This copy of your website is for your retention
It is helpful to us if you are able to provide text and photographs in electronic form - for example, the files output by a digital camera and the words in MS word or similar format.
All our websites are created with search engines in mind and the website design is compliant with search engine guidelines. It is a good idea for your website to be re-evaluated in time as over a period of time the 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 new rules etc.
There are thousands of web designers - most advertise on the Internet trying to persuade you to place your website design in their hands. Which web designer should you choose? You have found us and we think that’s the perfect start to get the job done right! We have strong business ethics and we will do the job right the first time!
No. We discuss with you your website requirements and then price accordingly and once you have placed an order for your website design with us, that price is strictly adhered to.
This will depend upon the amount of information you wish to be displayed on your website. If you have many products/services, then it may be advantageous to have a database incorporated into your website design. We will discuss this in detail with you and if a database is advised we will explain in detail exactly how this will work. We can tailor your website design to suit your specific requirements.
There are many different methods, which can be used to update websites. The method you choose and the functionality we build into your website design is solely up to you although of course we will be glad to advise you which method will suit your needs. If you have a small website consisting of just a few pages and will only wish to make changes very infrequently, then usually it is more cost effective simply to ask us to carry out these changes for you. Other methods, which are frequently chosen, are largely dependent upon how much data or information and pictures you have and how you store this information at present. We can provide an on line content management system where you can either update individual products/pages/services or particular sections of your website.
No once your website is designed it belongs to you and you can commission anyone to update it for you - although of course we would like to think that you are happy with our services and will continue to use us for your website maintenance.
Your website visitors will see some things differently depending on their browser, screen resolution setting and their individual computer settings and toolbars. We design sites with that in mind and preview them in several browser types and resolution settings before publishing. Obviously as technology altars then eventually all websites may need reevaluation.

Yes we do use flash as and when required. It is important to note that there are times when flash animations can be an asset but it would be unwise to use " flash " to create an entire website or even entire pages of your website as search engines are not able to read the content of flash and therefore any words used in animations will not be indexed by the search engines. Generally it is best to use flash for smaller banners, advertisements or demonstrations and incorporate the flash animation into a web page, which also includes some written text in html. This way the search engines will be able to index your information

If the website we have designed for you includes a Content Management System then you can access your administration areas from anywhere as long as you have an internet connection and make updates instantly as frequently as you wish. If your website is a smaller website and was designed without using this type of system and you don't have any html skills, then we can update the website for you. Our charges are very reasonable.
The Content Management Systems really are very easy to use and do have explanatory notes included where necessary. We run through the administration screens with you when we design the site for you - however if at any time you have any questions we are available at the end of the telephone to run through the procedures or answer any queries you may have
The cost of a web site varies depending on the site and complexity.
