How much does a web site cost?
There are quite a few factors that are going to affect the ultimate cost of your web site. These factors include how many pages you are going to have, if you will sell products on your website, the graphic work involved, and how interactive your future web site will be. You will also need web hosting and domain name registration.
Do I need to hire a "local" web site designer?
We create web sites for clients who are local as well as out of state. By using the Internet, email and the telephone, it is possible to communicate effectively with clients in any location. Working with a local Web design firm gives you the benefit of local proximity, easier face-to-face contact, and reduced expenses from meetings, travel time, communication, and shipping. In addition, you have the added advantage of more easily building a rapport with your Web design firm when you can interact with them.
How long does it take to have a web site designed?
The time frame is determined by the size of your web site, the complexity of your site design, and our current client design schedule. A good web design company will dedicate themselves to your project. An average web design project lifecycle is 2-3 months. Small web design projects (15 pages or less with few programming features) will likely take less time, and very complex web design projects may take longer than 3 months. Generally web design companies complete projects faster than in-house developers because web design companies can dedicate multiple web designers and web programmers to each project.
What is a URL?
It stands for "universal resource locator". This is the address typed in to view your web page on the Internet. For example, you would type in http://www.aceproinc.com to accessed our home page.
What is a domain name?
A domain name is a specific web site address that you choose and register with Network Solutions(the official registrar of domain names ending in .com, .edu, and .gov). Our domain name is "aceproinc.com".
What is web hosting?
Web hosting is a monthly fee that you pay to have your site accessible on the Internet. We can provide web hosting for our clients via aplus.net. They are one of the biggest & most reliable hosting companies in the US.
What is site maintenance?
Maintenance is a fee paid monthly to keep your site updated with new content that you provide. Most good web sites have new content updated regularly. Fresh content is what will keep your visitors coming back.
Why can't I find my web site in the search engines?
Once your site has been 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. How fast your site is listed depends on each individual Search Engines database update schedule. Watch your server traffic logs for visiting spiders.
Web Site Content - What Do I Put On My Site?
That would depend on the goals of your web site. If you run a business website you would include as much information about your products or services that your customers would need to purchase from you.
