Design & Development

How long does it take to develop a website?

Not long, the whole process can be as short as 2-3 weeks.

But honestly this rarely happens as this would require a client to have everything ready.

We find most clients need the development process to be more fluid, they need the freedom to make decisions step by step and take their time.

So a more accurate answer would be, that it depends on how long you need.

Will I own my new website?

Yes, everything that we build will be 100% owned by you.

How does the payment process work?

We generally only accept payment for work completed, no deposits are required before work is undertaken.

Invoicing usually occurs on a monthly basis covering work completed up until the date of the invoice.

Can you help me update my existing website that another web firm built?

Normally yes, but this does depend on where your website is hosted and how your existing website was developed.

How much does a website cost?

The cost of a website can vary depending on the size and features included, just like the cost of a car changes depending on the model and features included.

Our website projects generally start from around £500 and range upwards depending on the amount of content and the features included.

Hosting & Domain Names

Can you host my current website for me?

Sure, our fast, reliable, secure Virtual Servers are supported by a 24/7/365 UK based Engineer Server Support team dedicated to delivering a 99.9% uptime.

Our Red Hat Linux Servers all run PHP 5.3.1 and MySQL 5 database.

Can you take responsibility for renewing my domain names?

Yes and No. We are more than happy to renew any domain names for you when they need renewing, but we will not take responsibility for your domain name.

Your domain names are your property and we have no right to them, even if we register them on your behalf.

If you are kind enough to allow us access we can however pay for their renewal as often as needed.

Can you help me register a domain name?

Sure, we can even advice you on what domain name you should register for your website.

Can I have more than one domain name for my website?

Sure, but we recommend that you have a primary domain name and you have any other domain name forward onto to this primary domain name.

Where are your websites hosted?

All websites that Itchy Website Designs create must live on our servers.

The company we use for web hosting is a datacenter called iRack, who offer 24/7/365 UK based Engineer Server Support.

Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)

Can you help me Search Engine Optimise my website?

Yes we can help you enhance your websites "findability" by the search engines. There are many components to search engine optimisation, including proper selection and use of keywords and metatag information.

Can you guarantee my search engine rankings?

No ethical web design agency can guarantee something they can't control, beware of any company that claims they can. - But what we can do is help you to choose the right approach that allows you to make the most of your websites capabilities.

Website Content

Can you help me write my website content?

Yes, but we cannot do it for you. 

There are plenty of companies who offer content writing services, if you want, use one, but we consider these services expensive and usually deliver an impersonal website that does not get across the owners message. - Instead what we offer is help and advice that enables you to write your own content, get across your message in your own words.
