(1) Do you use website "templates" or create my site from scatch?

As a general practice, all website are created "from fresh" and customzied to your needs. We can easily accomodate your budget by utilizing a template if you so desire. Using a template will reduce the amount of time needed to create your website, but may limit the look of your site depending on the template's design and construction.

(2) What payment options to you accept?

We currently accept Visa, Mastercard, Discover, American Express, Paypal, Check, and Money Order.

Reminder on all payments being made by Check and Money order. These payment methods have to be received and clear in our bank prior to your due date. Any delays could result in suspension.

(3) Is there a minimum amount for design?

Every project varies and pricing is based on the amount of work needed to accomplish a look that you will be happy with. We have completed projects for less then $250, however that is uncommon.

(4) Do you require a deposit?

Once you contact us and we get the details of your project we will provide you with a formal proposal which outlines payment terms.

Again, this varies by project, but on average it's about 30 days from a signed proposal to a "go live" date.

Yes we will. Our proposal will include pricing for all software, domains, certificates, and hosting (if required) for your project as discussed in our site analysis call or email.
