Web Design FAQ


How long will it take for my web site to be designed?

The timescale of a website design project is often dictated by the client. If you have a deadline in mind I will endeavour 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.


In what format should I supply words and photographs about my business for my new website?

It is helpful to me 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.
If this is not possible, I can help get your information ready for use on the website. I always offer using Google document to my client. It is easy to use and a perfect service by Google.

Will my website design be" Search Engine" friendly?

All my 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.

I run a small/medium size business and want an online presence to promote my business in a professional manner to new customers and to provide a more professional image to existing customers. What do I need to achieve this?

You need a professionally developed website, a domain name, and hosting facilities for your website.
You also need the website to be uploaded onto your hosting facilities and promoted to the search engines.

I hear that there are hidden costs associated with web design services. Is this true?

No, I discuss with you about your website requirements and then price accordingly
and once you have placed an order for your website design with me, that price is strictly adhered to.

Do I need a database on my website?

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.
I will discuss this in detail with you and if a database is advised, I will explain in detail exactly how this will work. I can tailor your website design to suit your specific requirements.

Am I tied into you for any site maintenance or updates I wish to do once my website is designed?

No once your website is designed it belongs to you and you can commission anyone to update it for you.
Although of course I would like to think that you are happy with my services and will continue to use me for your website maintenance.

Will everyone see my web site the same?

Your website visitors will see some things differently depending on their browser, screen resolution setting and their insectionidual computer settings and toolbar.
I design sites with that in mind and preview them in several browser types and resolution settings before publishing. Obviously as technology alters then eventually all websites may need reevaluation.

Do you use Flash animation in your website design?

Yes I do use flash 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.

Who owns the website once the website design is completed?

The website belongs to you – I turn in all files and data and you will get them all on your hosting server space.
However I strongly recommend you to make a copy of all your file on your own PC.

Do I need a Website for my small business?

Yes, you need a website. No matter the size or type of your business, if you’re trying to compete in today’s tech-savvy world then you need a website in order to market yourself, gain traction in your industry and simply be found by customers.
Today when someone is looking for a dry cleaner, antiques dealer, or hair salon they’re going to Google. Let’s face it, most people don’t even open that big yellow book that shows up on their doorstep each year. Don’t have a website? Only listed in the directory sites? You’re losing customers. It’s as simple as that.
