What costs are associated with having a web site?

First is the cost of the initial development of your site. This includes developing the web pages, images, scripts and databases required to create your site. The initial development cost varies depending on the amount of content and technical expertise required to build a site that meets your specifications.

Secondly you must pay for the cost of web site hosting. Hosting is a constant expense for the web site owner and is required to make your site available to the public. Hosting for most sites involves renting space on a server that is dedicated to storing and delivering your site content to users on the internet.

Third is domain name registration. A domain name makes up part of the web address (http://www.yourcompany.com) that people type in their browser when they want to see your site.

Once your site is up and running there may be costs associated with site maintenance. This varies according to your specific requests and the frequency that updates are needed.

Ecommerce sites also have additional fees and requirements.

How do different browsers and user settings affect the appearance of your site?

Different browsers (Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, etc.) render code slightly differently. In order to minimize the variation between browsers all sites that we develop are checked in Chrome, Firefox, and Internet Explorer ensure that your site appears as it was designed.

User settings on the other hand are out of our control. Simple things like the monitor size, screen resolution, color settings, and the graphics card can alter the appearance. We develop all sites to conform to the industry standard screen resolution (1024x768) unless otherwise requested. If you have any specific questions about any of these setting please contact us.

From the time I sign up, how long will it take to make my site live?

Although the time required varies from site to site, we can generally complete a site within two to three weeks. This can vary according to the requested functionality as well as the timeliness you can provide us with the information you would like to include on your site.

We will provide you with a preview link once we have begun the development of your site so you can view the progress as it is made. The preview site is only accessable to those whom you decide to share the link with ensuring the general public will not see an unfinished product.
