How much does a website cost?
This is probably the most common question we get. The best answer we can give is that it depends on the complexity and features of the website. We try to give our customer a basic idea of a website cost by offering web design packages. These packages give a starting point in features and cost. Once you tell us exactly what kind of website you're looking for, we'll write up an exact estimate tailored for you. We won't start work on the site or send you a bill until you're happy with the cost and basic design of the site. Click here to view our available design packages.
Can you re-design or fix my current site?
Does your website still use Flash or look like it's from the 1990's? We can definitely help you out! One of our specialties is re-designing and re-programming outdated or problematic websites. We've had customers who have started websites on their own, only to find out that the project was just too much for them to handle. We can take the features you like and incorporate them in a brand new site. Are you happy with your design, but want some extra funtionality? We can keep your current site and re-program for some cool new features or fix broken features. We have experience in Content Management Systems such as Wordpress, Joomla!, Concrete5, and DotNetNuke. We are also experienced in many different types of coding languages which enable us to work with many different types of websites.
How long will it take to build my site?
The time it takes to complete your website is dependent on two factors. The first factor is the complexity of your site. The second factor, and most important one, is how much you're willing to work! Yes, I said, "you're." Much of the work of creating a great website comes from you. You know your business the best, and are in a great position to fill up your site with content for your customers. As web designers, we create a blank canvas and it's your job to fill it with content. Of course, we'll point you in the right direction and let you know if something can be done better. We also can provide stock images that fit well on your site. Once we get a design down and have the basic programming of the site complete, your site will get done more quickly if you forward content to us in a timely manner. Our average time for creating a website from scratch is six weeks.
Do I get control over the content of my website?
The answer to this question depends on which kind of website you choose. A basic, lower cost website gives you less real time control over the content of the site. Of course, you can have us update the content of your website at any time, although we charge a fee based upon the time it takes us to update your site. If you know you'll need to update your site often, then your best decision is to pay extra money up front for a content management system. This kind of site will give you partial or full control over the content of your website, but will cost you more money up front. Whatever your needs, we'll point you in the right direction!
What are the fees to keep my website up and running?
There are two annual fees you'll have to pay to keep your website live. A website needs a large computer called a server to store your website files and make them accessible to the world wide web. This service is called hosting. We provide hosting services through a third party hosting company. We use a very reliable company that provides great service and exceptional reliability and security. The fees for hosting range from $75.00 to over $100.00 for more complex sites.
The other annual fee to keep your site live is your domain fee. You'll have to reserve your web domain and pay a fee to keep it in your name. For example, if you like the name "www.jetsetrocks.com" and it's available, you'll need to reserve that name by paying a yearly fee. Our charge for this fee is $12.00.
You can always shop around and pick your hosting company yourself, but you'll have to take the responsibility of servicing your website on your own. If you let Jet Set take care of your hosting, we'll make sure everything on your site continues to run smoothly.
