HOW LONG WILL MY PROJECT TAKE?
Each of our projects are very different. If you’re looking to get a basic website up and running, we could say between 1-3 weeks depending if there are no delays your side. A larger (typical) website however would normally take between 4-6 weeks to be completed.
If you have your images and content ready to go, the quicker we can turn around your project.
HOW DOES THE WEBSITE DESIGN PROCESS WORK?
**Please bear in mind the below is just guidelines for our standard package. Depending on what you’ve discussed with your project manager, this might differ**
To get started, we would normally ask for either a reference website that you like the look of to give us an understanding of the style you like. Once the website deposit has been made, we will get started on it the site within the week. Depending on our schedule we might be able to get started straight away. After gathering your company colours, we would normally design the home page and send it back to you for your to confirm or discuss with us if your happy with the design. After this stage you can send us your images and text. Once we have received these we will build out the rest of the website. You can go over the website and let us know if you would like any changes to be made.
WHAT’S A DOMAIN?
A domain is the same as a URL. I.E. www.example.com
HOW DOES PAYMENT WORK?
Once the project has the go-ahead, we require a 50% deposit on the project. When the website is completed our side, we will put the site on maintenance mode until the final payment has been made.
DO YOU HAVE DIFFERENT PACKAGES FOR DIFFERENT BUDGETS?
We understand that when you start a business there are many costs. If you want to get online, but don’t have the budget for something spectacular.. Creative Website Designs can use template websites to cut out time on building the website from scratch. We would use a template but change the colours to your company colours and also the images and text. It would only be the layout of the template that would remain the same.
The majority of our work is bespoke, however we like to offer this service so that our websites are affordable for everyone.
Our packages for template websites start from just £150. Get in touch with one of our team members for more information on this.
WHY DO I NEED WEBSITE HOSTING?
In it’s most simplest form, website hosting is the equivalent of car insurance. You can buy a car (domain) but without insuring it, it can’t go on the road. The same as if you get a website, you can’t put it online without website hosting.
I ALREADY HAVE HOSTING, MY DOMAIN AND EMAILS
Great, thats no problem at all. If you could set up a login for us to access your domain and hosting, we can get the website set up from there. Speak to one of our team members to find out the best configuration.
ONCE THE SITE IS DESIGNED, HOW DO I GO ABOUT REQUESTING CHANGES?
If you would like to make any additional changes outside of the project, get in touch with your project manager who will arrange this. Changes outside of the project are charged at an additional £35 per hour.
CAN YOU TEACH ME HOW TO MAKE CHANGES MYSELF?
If you would like to learn how to make changes to your site, this can be arranged. We will set up admin access and teach you how to use your website for an additional £80. Please speak to one of our team for more information on this.
