For clients who need domain name registration and hosting, we recommend that our clients use Lunar Pages.
Though we work with many hosting companies and have likely worked with yours, we prefer Lunar Pages for their features, service, and support. However, you can use whichever hosting company you prefer as long as the hosting is WordPress compatible.
We believe it’s important that the website building process not be mysterious to folks, and our commitment is to communicate clearly so the whole process is easy and maybe even fun. We welcome your questions.
Every site we build is unique, but the site building process is usually the same for each. In a nutshell, here’s how the site-building process works:
Once your down payment is made, the work begins. In some cases, we may need to discuss the site in-depth with you, to help generate site design ideas for you.
At this stage we will need your main page text, the titles of your website pages, and copies of any special art you would like to have incorporates into your design. This could be your logo, photos, or any other special art which you’d like to make sure is included or designed around in the theme and on the main page.
Then we get busy doing what we do best! And when we’re done with the design, we’ll present a main page design for you, which we will refine and change, if needed (up to three proofs), until it reflects your vision. From there, we build the rest of the pages based on the initial design, with your text. When the site is completed and looks great to you, then you will get our final bill. Upon payment of the final bill, we take your site live and give you the keys to the site.
Unless otherwise arranged, your site will be WordPress-based, which will allow you to make changes to the text after we finish the site, and we also provide you with basic instructions for editing the site. Clients who prefer not to do their own site updates can hire us at our hourly rate of $75. (Charged in 10-minute increments, $12.50 min.)
The timeline for building a site varies. A basic site can be completed in a few days; larger sites will take longer. The more quickly you can provide us with text, artwork, and look at proofs, the more quickly the site build will go.
We look forward to serving you!
