A domain name is your address on the web, for example, blisswebdesign.com or google.co.uk.
A website will require at least one domain name, usually yourbusinessname.com. Many common names, places and business type domain names will already be registered. It is essential to check if the domain name you would like is available before naming your new business.
If you are an established business and the domain name you want is registered, we can help you find one that best suits your requirements.
The best domain names are short and easy to spell with no hyphens; your customers must remember them.
Your domain name will also be used in your email addresses, for example, email@example.com, einfo@yourbusiness. This is also why you don't want your domain name to be too long.
Hosting is the space on a large computer (called a server) where a websites files, pages, pictures, content, programs etc., are uploaded and located. Websites cannot perform without hosting.
When a website is uploaded to a hosting account within the server, anyone with internet access will see it. A hosting account will also look after your emails, amongst other things.
Because you usually get what you pay for. You will find that these companies will get their money off you in other ways. There will be a charge for your hosting, your emails, the size of your site, expensive helplines when something goes wrong, to name but a few. Remember, just because you can buy a pair of pliers doesn't mean you're a dentist.
We all have different skills and talents. It is better not to have a website than to have a generic one with the same content and images as dozens of other sites on the net. Your site will also need to be found and indexed by search engines. A good web designer has many skills. If you want your website that looks, impresses, performs well and is original, then you need to hire a professional web designer.
Every web design and development project is unique. Every customer's requirements will vary widely. So it all depends on the time we think we will spend developing the site.
A simple redesign of a relatively basic website that needs revamping and updating could cost as little as £250.00.
A five-page website with a home and contact page would cost £500 to £1200, depending on the content supplied. If you want us to look after the written content, supply images and graphics, and design logos, the cost will rise to reflect the time spent on the website project.
These are all very rough estimates. We would be happy to give you a more precise quotation for your specific project. Just call us on 01446 740 762 / 07799 410 311 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will build your website as quickly as possible, but the time taken for each project will differ depending on its size, your input and the content you supply to the site. But as a rough guide, a website consisting of 5 to 8 pages with most of the content provided by you would take 2 to 4 weeks. A similar site but with most of the content supplied by us would take 5 to 7 weeks.
If you're hosting the site with us, as soon as we have your order, we will put a single page site up with a brief description of what you do and your contact details, including your new email address if required.
Yes, we would be happy to provide all the online needs. We will register your domain name, design your website, provide your web hosting and set up the various email accounts you require. You will then have just one call to make if you have any problems or need any help or updates.
