Websites

I have never had a website built, how does it all work?

That’s what we’re here for! Please have a look through these frequently asked questions for answers to the most common questions we get asked.

You can also take a look at our services section to learn more about what’s involved.

I already have a website, can you update or refresh the design?

It’s possible depending on the existing website but in most cases it’s more effective to rebuild it from scratch. That way you will be up to date with current technologies and everything will be shiny and new.

But drop us a line so that we can give you a quotation.

How much does a website cost?

It depends on a lot of factors, just like the cost of hiring a builder or buying a car. Generally a standard business website we offer including design and development will start around the $5000 mark, depending on your requirements. But we have different packages , do check out our services pages.

How long does it take to design and build a website?

The time it takes will vary from project to project, but a basic website normally takes around 4-6 weeks from beginning to end, depending on the complexity and the quality and timing of content provided by you.

Larger sites with more complex features will take longer. A timeline estimate will be provided based on information provided.

Do you provide eCommerce/Online Store websites such as Shopify or WooCommerce?

Yes, we do! Online stores are an addition to a standard website that can be included in the initial website build or added at a later stage if you are not ready to go ahead in the initial stages.

Larger sites with more complex features will take longer. A timeline estimate will be provided based on information provided.

Will I be able to update content myself?

Your website will be built using a Content Management system (CMS) which is a tool that makes it easy for you to update your own website, anytime, anywhere. With basic computer skills, you will be able to add and edit text, images, blog posts or products. All you need is an internet connection and a web browser.

Will you maintain the website after it’s built?

Yes we can! This is what most of clients do with us. This builds up a long term relationship with our customers.

Do I write the content myself or provide images?

We don't do copywriting because we believe you know your business best. That is easier if you write what you are offering to customers. Nonetheless, we can also introduce you to copywriters in the market.

As for images, we do provide up to 5 stock images but do check out our packages for the exact numbers. We don't offer professional photography solution but happy to link you up with the photographers once you become our customers.

Can you design my logo, namecard etc?

Yes we can for customer spend above $10,000, we can include that in. However, we just help to design the logos and name card but we do not do branding. For full branding work, it would be best to be left to the branding agencies.

Hosting and Domains

Do I need a domain name and website hosting?

Yes. A domain name and website hosting are required to run a custom website.

What is a domain name?

A domain name is the address of your website on the internet and will look something like www.yourbusiness.com. Domain names are registered for at least 2 years at a time.

What is a website hosting? Do I need it?

Website hosting is a remote server that your website is uploaded in order to be accessible by the internet. It is the place where the data is stored.

Yes our plans include that! We can help you set up the gmail but there is a monthly recurring cost of USD$5/user by Google.
