I have been developing websites since 2007. In that time, I have been asked a lot of questions. I have created this FAQ page to answer many of the frequently asked questions I’ve been asked along the way.
What is a domain name?
A domain name is your address to the internet. Much like your home address, it’s how your visitors find you. It looks something like yourcompanyname.com
What is web hosting?
Web hosting is where your website physically sits, a server. It’s like the property your home sits on. Hosting companies you may have heard of include BlueHost, Hostgator, and Siteground.
What is search engine optimization (SEO)?
Search Engine Optimization is all about getting your site to appear high on the list of results returned by a search engine, such as Google. The higher up on the results you are, the more traffic you’re likely to get. The reverse is also true.
There are many facets involved in good SEO, the most important of which is good content. Good content is easy to read, keyword rich but not spammy, informative, and written to its intended audience.
Do you provide training?
Yes we provide our clients training on maintaining their website.
Will my website work on mobile devices?
Yes it will. Last year, mobile-friendliness became an important ranking factor on Google.
How much does a website cost?
The cost of a website can vary depending on various factors, just like the cost of a house does. Let’s talk and find out what your needs are.
How long does it take to build a website?
The time it takes to develop a website depends on the size and the complexity of it. It also depends on the response time for gathering information, such as content and images. A basic website typically takes about a month from beginning to end.
Do I need my own domain name and web hosting?
I do ask that you choose your own domain name. GoDaddy and Name Cheap both offer domains at a reasonable price.
Yes, I do offer hosting. While you are not required to host with me, there are many hosting companies out there that I would not recommend. Let me help you with the process of choosing.
Do you write the content for my site?
No, I don’t write your content for you. However, I can edit and proofread your content to correct any grammatical or spelling errors, as well as making it more search engine friendly.
Can you design my logo?
Sorry, I am not a graphic designer.
Can you help me with social media and email marketing?
Yes, I can get you set up with both.
