FAQ

Still hesitant to get started?

The website building process may seem overwhelming because there is quite a bit of behind the scenes preparations needed to make the site run smoothly. A considerable amount of time needs to be invested to ensure the following:

  1. Looks attractive
  2. Loads quickly
  3. Easy to read on different sizes screens
  4. Is secure
  5. Functions efficiently
  6. Is easy for the user to find on the web

A professional company can take on this task for you. Once the website is up and running, you will be educated on how to update it at your convenience.

 

What do I need to have a functioning website?

To start with, you need to register a domain name and find a host for your site. Both of these services require yearly re-occurring fees.

How long does it take?

As fast as three weeks, if the following conditions are met:

  2. Explicit expectations
