1. What can developing a website do for me?
There can be a hundred reasons to develop a website and what it can do for you, and a few important ones are the following.First a website can reach millions of clients that might not otherwise be available to you. Second, customers can view products, services, or whatever you want to share with them from the comfort of their own home. No matter what type of business you are in, you can only benefit from developing a web site and there will always be a way to grow and make money on the web for you.
2. What is the cost of a custom designed website?
The cost of a customized website design completely depends on what you would like for your online presentation. As with any web design project,
the more graphics and pages that you require, the more expensive it will be.
Anyone working within a very limited budget should begin with a strong foundation, then subsequently develop more web pages & graphics as your online sales increase.
3. What is the difference between a "static" and a "dynamic" site ?
The difference is that a "static" website design is written in HTML only. Each page is separate and there is no database. In terms of functioning, this means that the only way to edit the website is to go to each "static" page and edit the HTML, so if you know HTML you can do it yourself using a webpage design editor software, or pay a web design company to edit the website for you each time you want something changed.
A "dynamic" website is written using more complex code and can do a lot more. For example, we can create a log in box through which one can change various parts of the website after he has signed in, such as adding information or products. This is because each webpage design is constructed based on the information in that database, and the information in that database can be changed via another interface.
The "dynamic" website designs cost more to develop, as they require more complex coding and a content management utility needs to be developed to help you manage your website information. Another benefit to having a "dynamic" website design is that they allow you to change only the content of the website and not the design, so you will not be able to accidently break the visual style of the website. They have other benefits as well, especially when web sites start to get very large, as they make data management more efficient and your web site more expandable.
We recommend you do a combination, having some "dynamic" areas such as menus and product catalogue where you have to change pictures or information regularly and leave other pages such as contact information as static pages.
4. Am I able to see my website design while my website is under development ?
Yes! Once the website design for the main page has been completed it will be uploaded to your hosting server for your approval. After approval the rest of your website will be developed.
5.What is a CMS website ?
CMS, Content Management System, is a software solution used to maintain and control your website keeping web developing costs to a minimum when making changes to your site. CMS websites are user friendly and anyone with experience in sending an email, cut and paste and browsing can be trained to learn to use it in approximately 45 minutes. If you are starting from zero, well it will take a little longer.
6. Who will do the maintenance on our site after it is online?

7. Why can't I find my web site in the search engines?
Your site will not start appearing immediately in search engines. It takes a lot of time and effort to be anywhere in the search engines. Once your website has been properly optimized and submitted to the top Search Engines they may require several weeks, or even months to actually spider and list your web site in their directory. The website will take a lot longer to list if you target highly competitive keywords in comparison to regular keywords. How Fast your website is listed depends on each individual Search Engines database update schedule.
