What is the turnaround time for a new website?
It really depends on the client and size of the project, but we will always try to meet your deadlines. The most common delay in developing a new site is waiting for picture and text from the client.
Will I have to meet with your staff prior to having my website designed?
Not usually, in most cases the only necessary contact can be via email and phone. Once we have your website design ready we will publish it online were only you and our liaison can view it. You can then critique any feature you dislike via email or phone and we will work to correct them.
Do you offer any service after my website design is complete?
Yes, we are always available for support and site upgrades. We offer site maintenance, support and are always ready to make upgrades and improvements to your site as needed.
Once my website is complete, do I have to keep it hosed with you or can I move it to a different hosting company?
You can move your site to a different hosting company at any time. After we finish designing your site we will mail you a copy on CD for you to keep as a backup. You can use these files to move your site elsewhere if you would like.
What file formats should I use to submit my text and pictures to your design team?
We are able to accept most digital media and text formats in use today. If you do not have a digital copy of your pictures or text we can help you get them ready for publishing.
Will my website be Search Engine Optimized (SEO)?
Yes, we design all of our clients websites with the latest search engine guidelines in mind. It is however a good idea to have your site reevaluated periodically to ensure it is still within compliance.
Are there any hidden cost associated with your website design?
No, we will work with you to fully understand what you need and we’ll price accordingly. Once we have given you a design quote there will not be any additional costs. We stand by our quotes!

Do you offer Flash animation for your website design services?
Yes, if the website calls for Flash animation we are fully capable to design and use Flash. However, it is not wise to use Flash more often than necessary since search engines cannot read the animated text. Any text that is not readable by search engines will not be index and could keep you from getting any search engine traffic.

Yes, you can have many email accounts with your hosting. Common examples are: firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com

No, you will not need to install any software.
Will I be able to update my website and if so how often?
