Frequently Asked Questions
How much does a website cost?
Here are some items that can effect the overall cost:
- Number of pages the website contains, as each page requires creating.
- Functionality, such as eCommerce, image galleries, multiple contact forms.
- Design type, bespoke websites generally cost more than ones created from a template.
- Content production/sourcing done by us.
For these reasons, we will ask you to tell us, honestly, what financial investment you are prepared to give to your project. We can then make an informed decision on what you can expect from your investment.
How quickly will my website be ready?
In our experience, the main hindrance to launching a website is the amount of time spent waiting for a response from the client. Sometimes, it’s possible to launch a website early if the basics are in place. Then, when appropriate, trickle feed the other pages, posts or products out.
How do you build your websites?
It’s also flexible enough for just about anything, whether it be for your corporate presence, an e-Commerce store, a news site or just a simple blog. According to a recent survey, WordPress now powers over 30% of all websites, including Sony, Google, Facebook, Disney, LinkedIn, PlayStation, Mercedes-Benz, and more.

Are there any hidden costs for my website?
There are many website design services and hosting providers out there that allow you to get a website for a pittance, sometimes free, but their hidden costs will make your eyes water. The thought of having free web hosting and building your site without paying anything is tempting until you get a reality check. Once you sign up to these so-called “free website services”, you slowly start discovering the limitations and many of them turn out to be not free at all.
