How long does it take to build a website?
We've built websites in a couple of days, and had others that took almost a year to complete. It largely depends on the customer: How big the website is; how organised you are with content; how much research and content creation we are tasked with.
What happens to Delayed, Suspended, or Abandoned Projects?
Do I need to own a domain name before I contact you?
Do I need to prepare before ordering my website?

What will it cost to build a website?
How long is a piece of string? Websites vary greatly in size, content and time to build. Pricing will vary depending on number of pages, and whether we opt for WordPress or HTML. It generally becomes more economical the more pages you have, because the initial set-up takes the most time, even for a small website. Take a look at our (very competitive) rates and fees (on the Rates tab) to find out more.

What is the difference between HTML and WordPress sites?
With static HTML, the developer creates a website by writing code (including text content). Once it’s on the server, it’s always like that. There’s no background processing going on – your site is always right there in its finished form.
WordPress is a content management system that uses PHP and a database. In simple terms when someone visits your WordPress site, your server “assembles” your site by:
• Executing the PHP code to put together the HTML version of your site;
• Querying your database to get the content to insert into that HTML.

Static HTML is best for smaller websites (up to 15 pages) that don’t require loads of interactive functions, such as category sorting or blog posts. Any content edits need to be done by the developer, as one needs to work directly with code.

WordPress is best for larger, content-driven sites where the site-visitor will want to sort or filter information (shop sites, blogs, cross-referenced information), or where you want to manage and edit the content yourself. This does require experience and ongoing interaction with your site.
WordPress is built on core software and plugins that need to be updated to their latest versions quite frequently. There are risks involved, in that plugins sometimes conflict with each other and cause problems in how the website performs.
For this reason, all WordPress websites require a mandatory Maintenance Plan to cover backups and updates outside of normal content updates.

In terms of design (the look and feel of a site), there is very little difference between HTML and WordPress sites. Both are constructed using pre-built Themes, are mobile-friendly, and can contain interactive elements such as social media feeds, feedback forms, animation etc.
