How long will it take for my web site to be designed?
The timescale of a website design project is often dictated by the client. If you have a deadline in mind we will endeavour to meet it for you. The most common delay in the creation and completion of a new website is waiting for content (text/images) to be sent to us by the client.
Will we need to have a meeting regarding the website design?
In the majority of cases a meeting isn't necessary and most of our designs are generally completed with contact via email and telephone. If you want to make specific changes and adjustements, we recommend we have a meeting and complete the design.
Once my website is completed - what after sales services do you offer?
We fully support any website we design and are always available should you encounter any problems or require any enhancements.
Do I have to keep my website with you forever, or can I move it to hosting company?
You may move your website to another hosting company at any time. Once your website design has been completed, you can request the website files or ask us to upload it to your new hosting package.
In what format should I supply words and photographs about my business for my new website?
It is helpful if you are able to provide text and photographs in electronic form - for example, the files output by a digital camera and the words in MS word or similar format. If this is not possible, we can help get your information ready for use on the website.
Will my website design be Search Engine friendly?
All our websites are created with search engines in mind and the website design is compliant with search engine guidelines. It is a good idea for your website to be re-evaluated occasionally, as over a period of time the search engines do alter their rules and algorithms and you will want to be certain that your website is kept up to date and complies with new rules etc.
I run a small/medium size business and want an online presence to promote my business. What do I need to achieve this?
You need a professionally developed website, a domain name, and hosting facilities for your website. You also need the website to be uploaded onto your hosting facilities and promoted to the search engines.
If I choose a CMS System or Content Management System - can I be sure that my webpages are Search Engine friendly
Yes with the Evolvenet's CMS Systems all web pages created are Search Engine Friendly - you can even add your own search engine meta tags to each individual web page if desired. The CMS tools are easy to use - effective and intuitive, allowing you to easily make your website more Search Engine friendly.
I hear that there are hidden costs associated with web design services. Is this true?
No. We discuss with you your website requirements and then price accordingly and once you have placed an order for your website design with us, that price is strictly adhered to.
Do I need a database on my website?
This will depend upon the type of website you require. If you need a brochure website, then the content can be stored on the website and you won't need a database. However, if you want a CMS or Ecommerce website a database is required. However, Evolvenet include a database in the price for you.
How do I update my website?
There are many different methods which can be used to update websites. The method you choose and the functionality we build into your website design is solely up to yourself although of course we will be glad to advise you which method will suit your needs.
Am I tied into Evolvenet for any site maintenance or updates I wish to do once my website is designed?
No once your website is designed it belongs to you and you can commission anyone to update it for you - although of course we would like to think that you are happy with our services and will continue to use us for your website maintenance.
Will everyone see my web site the same?
Your website visitors will see some things differently depending on their browser, screen resolution setting and their individual computer settings and toolbars. We design sites with that in mind and preview them in several browser types and resolution settings before publishing. We also test our websites on the latest mobile devices such as: iPhones, Windows Phone 7 and Android.

No web hosting service can guarantees 100% uptime. However we can say that our servers have had 99% up time for many years. Should our servers have any problems we do have the necessary backups in place to deal with this issue very efficiently.
Do you use Flash animation in your website design?
No we do not use flash any more, as search engines are not able to read the content of flash and therefore any words used in animations will not be indexed by the search engines.
