FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
We’ve been building web experiences for over 10 years and have gained a vast amount of experience and knowledge along the way. We crafted this FAQ page to answer many of the questions we are often asked.
How do I know if my current website is "responsive"?
Open your website on a computer, grab a corner of the site and drag it in. Do the pictures resize automatically to fit the new width? If so, your website is responsive. If not, it may be time for a redesign. More and more people’s first experience with your site will be from their phone. It is important to have a consistent user experience across platforms.
What is a domain name?
A domain name is your website address on the internet. Typically this would be something like www.yourcompany.com.
What is web hosting?
Web hosting is a service that allows your website to be viewed on the Internet. It’s basically a computer housed in a data center that runs your website and email.
Do I need my own domain name and web hosting?
Yes, we can help you get this set up or we can work with your existing provider. Your website needs to be hosted by a company that specializes in WordPress hosting. We are happy to make a personal recommendation if needed.
What is a Content Management System (CMS)?
A Content Management System — such as WordPress — is a tool that allows you to maintain the pages of your website yourself, without the need for any technical skills. A CMS allows you to edit and add pages, images, products or blog entries to your website. No additional software is required – all you need is a web browser and an internet connection.
Why do you use WordPress?
WordPress is open source content management software and currently powers around 28% of all websites on the Internet. The project is contributed to by tens of thousands of developers all over the world and is growing from strength to strength. WordPress allows us to develop flexible and customizable websites to modern standards and observes web development best practices. Furthermore the community of web developers that use WordPress reaches far and wide and allows us to tap into this collective intelligence and bring that wealth of experience to your project.
How much does a website cost?
The cost of a website can vary depending on various factors, just like the cost of a car may vary. Our website projects generally start in the $4,000 range for basic business sites and range upward depending on your unique needs like eCommerce or membership.
How long does it take to design and build a website?
The time it takes to produce a website depends on the size and complexity of your site and the quality of content that you have ready to go. A basic website typically takes around 6 weeks from beginning to end. We have worked hard to streamline our process to get our client’s sites live on the web as fast as possible without cutting corners.
What is Search Engine Optimization (SEO)?
Search Engine Optimization is all about getting your website higher up in the search results on search engines such as Google. The higher up the results you are — the more traffic (and customers) you’re likely to get.
There are many aspects that go into achieving good SEO. One of the most important is the copy (words or content) on your website. Focusing on well written, keyword rich and relevant content is the key. Keeping your content fresh, such as regulary posting a blog or article is another way for Google to recognize your site and rank you higher.
