Frequently Asked Questions
A new website is quoted based on the needs of the project. Constructing a website consists of different components. We’ll ask questions, assess your needs, and give you a quote based on that assessment. In our consultation we can give you a pretty good idea of how many pages you need and give you a base price e.g. 3 static pages is 250 US Dollars or Euro plus the cost for the X license. The rest depends on how much work is involved for extras like multi-lingual pages, image needs, etc. We’ll help you to be as cost effective as possible. We want you to succeed.
We hope for an eight week turnaround, but the project is mostly determined by the client. The more input you can provide in the initial stages, and the more feedback we get from you halfway through, the smoother this process will be. We need the content and images from you and all of that affects the pace of constructing your website. Planning well ahead takes the edge off of stress. We recommend gathering and writing all of your material at least three months before launch date.

Since our websites are all using WordPress, we recommend hosting with WordPress or Linux hosting. If you’re just revamping an existing site, it can simply continue to live where it always has.
Our static 3-page package is very affordable. If you need just one page plus a contact page, and you provide all of the photographs (originals only) and the content, we can tweak the cost to fit your needs and budget. The cost of X Theme license still applies.
We’re here for you! An hour of training is included in our website service which should be enough to show you the basics for keeping your site updated, but if you need anything at all, we’re just an email away.
