(Only for a limited time - excludes one page website)

This is all new to me.. What is it that you do, to get my website up and running?

We can only work with the information our customers send us. To put it simply, we (like all website designers) put the customers info into their chosen template/design (that we provide) and publish it on the internet. So potential customers can find them. We also host our customer's websites on high quality servers and resell domain names. Please keep in mind, we are not graphic designers so if you need any logos or other design work done you must have this prepared elsewhere, and then you can send it to us to add to your website.

Can I get an email that matches my domain name (eg. example

Yes, you have the ability to set up emails to match your domain name. We can help you create the email address within your cPanel and provide the instructions for how you can set it up on your phone and computer (Outlook etc.) yourself. However, please note domain email account are self-managed and we provide limited support after they have been created.

Can you tell me a bit more about hosting and what it has to offer? Do I need this?

Yes, hosting is required to keep your website live on the internet. Websites are hosted on servers. We provide Cheap Hosting if you are on a budget or premium Cloud Hosting. Cloud Hosting is fast and secure. Website hosting is billed monthly.

Will I be able to play around with things on the web pages and do some stuff myself or is this only done by someone like yourself?
Yes, you can edit your website pages easily from the front end after it is developed and live on the internet. It is like editing a Word document. However, somethings require more advanced support and we are here to help. Once your website is published on the internet, any additional work (outside your chosen package or quote) you request us to do is charge at an hourly rate depending on the complexity of the job (from $75* per hour). Additional features added to the site like Ecommerce / Online shopping and other components will require a quote.

Will my page be able to be viewed by everyone? 
Yes, the internet is global. There are some unsafe countries which we may block from our servers from time to time (to help prevent threats to our service).

Will my website be seen in Goggle search results?
We offer Free SEO with our website development packages. This includes submitting your website to Google and Bing. Please read more about this offer and our Terms & Conditions via our Free SEO page.

Will I be able to pick a Domain Name?
Yes, if you do not have a domain name already please visit our website and click on ‘Buy a Domain Name’ (via the main menu) – you can use a credit or debit card to purchase. If you need any assistance please let us know.

I have a domain name already hosted with another service provider, can I transfer it your service?
Yes, you can transfer your domain name to our service. Please contact us for instruction on how to do this.

How do I know what the webpage will look like on a mobile phone or tablet? 
If you visit the link to view the mobile friendly templates demos found on our website under 'Templates' (via main Menu) from a mobile phone or tablet you can see how they reduce in size.

Will I be able to contact your company for assistance on the website if I'm stuck with something?
Yes, we are here to assist and we provide tutorials to help you for after we have finished developing your website and it is live on the internet.

We have a website, what do we do now to help it get up in up Search Results?

If you are our customer and your website is live on the internet, we will have already submitted your website to Google and Bing through our Webmaster Tools accounts*. We also add a link to our website design site/s linking to our customer website on our portfolio pages.
