Frequently Asked Questions
I'm new to websites - how will this work?
How much will it cost?
Costs vary based on how complex the site will be. A basic one-page business website starts around $3000 and can go higher based on the different types of functionality you will need.
How long will it take?
Again, this depends on the complexity of your site. It also depends on the quality of the content, images, etc, that you already have ready to go. Generally a simple website usually takes around 4 weeks. If you want to put together something more complex, it will take longer.
What is a domain name and how is that different from web hosting?
Your domain name is the name of your website – for example it will look like : http://www.yourwebsite.com. You will need to purchase this from a domain name provider. There is an annual fee for this name.
Web Hosting is the physical location on the web where your web page lives. You will need to pay for this space through a web host provider, usually on a monthly basis.
