Web Design FAQs
Common questions about Happy by Design web design projects.
How much does a website cost?
The price for our websites depend on how simple or complex your requirements are, however, we do have an outline of our general packages, to give you a rough idea on costs. We aim to build good quality websites that can grow with your brand, instead of a cheap website that needs to rebuilt regularly.
What do you need from me to get started?
Prior to quoting for your website, we will ask you to fill in a website questionnaire, so we can establish what needs to be accomplished. Once the quote is accepted, the deposit has been paid, and the contracts signed, we will send you a request for some further information, in order to build your website. Don’t worry if you’re unsure of where to start, we can help every step of the way.
Do you offer website hosting?
We sure do! In fact, we prefer using our own website hosting with our web design builds, as we are aware of the stability and security of our hosting server. If you already have a preferred website host, we can usually build on that platform too, so long as it meets some specifications to allow for a good quality WordPress build.
How do I edit my website?
We build all our websites using the popular content management system, WordPress. If you, have no experience with WordPress, we can offer virtual training and provide support guides. Alternatively, we can take care of your website for you as part of a Website Maintenance package.
How long does it take to build a website?
On average, a website project takes around six weeks. Although, this can be more or less dependant upon the size and complexity of the website, and how quickly the content of the website is delivered.
Do I need to pay upfront?
No. However, we do take 50% deposit upfront, with the rest due on completion. If we will be hosting your website as well, we won’t begin the annual or monthly hosting fee, until the site is completed.
Will you look after my website after it has launched?
What about SEO?
As part of every site we build, we ensure each page is optimised for search, ultimately, increasing website traffic by improving how well your site performs in search engines, such as Google. For more advanced SEO, please see our SEO Packages page to find out how else we can help boost your website’s traffic.
Our Design Process
Creating a new website can seem to be an overwhelming prospect. To give you a better idea of what to expect during the process, see below the three main steps:
Layout & Design
A big part of designing a website is in the planning and layout stage of the process. First, we’ll sketch out where the pages/sub-pages of your website will be, and then design your Home page for approval. We use a nifty on-screen tool to collate your feedback, making lengthy email conversations a thing of the past.
Build & Develop
Once the site layout and initial design is approved, it’s time to move forward with designing all of your website pages, and implementing all functionality and plugins. We make sure your site looks great, and functions nicely across all devices and web browsers, before moving on to the final step.
Edits & Revision
Once your site is ready for a final look through, you’ll be able to review each page, and we can make detailed edits until your site is ready for launch. We ask that you please check through ALL pages to make sure the spelling, grammar, addresses, and information are correct, before going live.
