  • Q. What is your pricing? How much to build my website?

    A. I prefer to set a fixed price for any website job which I do. This is because sometimes there are unforseen circumstances which delay a project and this is fair to you. It is necessary to discuss your needs, and what kind of site you want in order to arrive at a price because I need to know the details of what the work involves. In general my price is $100 per page for a presentational website. I charge $1000 for an ecommerce website. So if you want a three page website, that would be $300. My prices are reasonable, and I have the skills necessary to complete your website expediently. Please contact me by using the CONTACT link at the top or telephone me for further discussion.



    Q. When will my website be finished?

    A. I am an expedient website technician. I can get a 10 page website done in a single week. This is dependent upon you giving all of the material, content, images, and text you would like in your website to me. If I don't have everything from you ready then that will delay the completion of your website.



    Q. What about payments?

    A. Payments can be made by check, through Paypal or cash. Payments must be half of the agreed upon price up front, and half after the work is finished. I require a deposit. I will provide you with an invoice and a receipt.



    Q. What about the ability to edit my website myself?

    A. I recommend WordPress which is the most popular website creation system in the world today. It is a CMS, which stands for Content Management System. This is a program or script which lives on your website host computer. What you would do then is to login to a webpage online, and then click therein to add, edit, and delete your pages and their contents. Inside of this CMS system, there are links and buttons for doing so. I can train you to use this system for you.



    Q. What if I want just you to maintain my website for me? I don't want to be responsible for changes.

    A. I am happy to maintain your website for you, making any changes you need. I am very good at maintaining websites. In the case that you don't want to make changes yourself, I can use either WordPress, or make a static website for you. My skills are varied.



    Q. How do I know that I will receive the kind of website that I want instead of the kind of website that my designer thought that I ment?

    A. You can relax as you watch your site being constructed. Providing feedback as I build and make changes will assure you that you get the kind of website that you want.

    I can either provide a private address on my site for the build out and then move it to a permanent address once it is finished. Or we can use the internet address of your choice right away.



    Q. Do you provide hosting?

    A. No. There are, however, many different excellent hosting providers at a reasonable price. I can recommend Lunarpages website hosting.



    Q. I still don't have my website address, the domain name as you call it. How do I get one?

    A. You must purchase it separtely. Don't worry, it isn't expensive. I recommend Godaddy for this. Believe me if you pay more than $10 per year then you have paid too much. If you purchase hosting through Lunarpages, they will provide a complimentary domain name free of charge.



    Q. I have this great idea for a Flash Animation! Can you do that?

    A. I am not a Flash programmer. You will find that custom Flash animations can be expensive. My prices are reasonable. What I can do is incorporate premade Flash animations. Another problem is that Flash animations may not show up on all cell phones and tablet devices. The Prefered method now is to use JavaScript for animation. I can provide pages which use JavaScript for some animation and movement effects. Contact me for details.
