Frequently Asked Questions
Answers to the Most Asked Questions About Our Website Design Services
How much does a website design cost?
The cost can vary depending on the type of project. A website can be as simple as a few pages of information to a website that includes a full-service shopping cart. You can request a FREE quote. Provide us with as many details as possible.
Do you register domain names?
Yes. You can provide us with a domain name that you would like us to research, and we will also provide you with domain names that are available that match your company. The cost depends on the type of domain name (.com, .org, .net, etc.) and the number of years the domain will be registered.
How do I get my website to appear on search engines?
Along with your website design, we provide basic Search Engine Optimization (SEO) which will get your website onto search engines. For an additional cost, we provide continuing SEO so that your website will rank higher in search engines. Please be aware that search engines are always changing their algorithm for indexing websites. Any company that guarantees a ranking on the first page of Google, for example, is not being honest. We do not guarantee that your website will appear on the first page of search engines, but we will optimize the website so that it will rank in Google and other search engines.

It depends on the size of the project. A smaller website can take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks depending on the amount of work we have at the time. A larger website, such as an e-commerce website, can take from a few weeks to several months to complete. The time also depends on the number of features, the time when the content is ready, and timely feedback from the client.
