FAQ

Hello! We’re Digital Renovators, a Halifax-based Web Design Agency Focusing On Designing and Developing the Perfect Website for You

How much does it cost to get a website built?

The cost of a website depends on several factors that all affect the design process in different ways. Some of the things that are taken into account when building a website are the number of pages, how much text is required, how much of the text you will be writing yourself, the theme you choose and whether or not you need e-commerce abilities etc. Typically, we charge between £600 and £800 and the price increases beyond that for more bespoke projects.

How long does it take to build a website?

Many other web design agencies will quote you for several weeks and make you pay for every second of it. Here at Digital Renovators, we aren’t like that, we aim to turnaround websites in just a few days and keep the cost within your budget. We’re all about creating the perfect website for you, while keeping it an efficient cost for your business.

What is hosting?

Hosting is something that perplexes almost every client we work with so we try to explain it as simply as possible without all the technical jargon. Hosting is paying for the electricity to keep your website up and running, without it your website would be inaccessible as it has no power to keep the server going. Hopefully, that makes Hosting a bit easier to grasp as it’s a very specific term only used within the technology industry.

Are there any ongoing costs?

Yes, although most people will only have to pay a yearly hosting and SSL fees to keep their website online and secure. We do offer maintenance on websites where you will pay one-off fees for any changes you would like to be made in the months following your new websites launch. Our sister company Digital Jumpsuit also offers online marketing packages that are developed to continually improve and maintain your customer base, ensuring sales are driven to your website regularly.

What is included in the price of my website?

The cost of your website includes the design, development and creation of your website. This takes into account the cost of themes, images, changes and any copy that needs to be added to your website before it is launched. Web developers time costs a pretty penny so we have developed systems that allow us to deliver your website in a short amount of time as possible, saving you money on labour costs.

Are there any hidden costs?

No. Once we agree what you need your price will remain fixed, so you know exactly what you’ll be paying. Quotes are always clearly stated before we start any work and everything is clearly documented. The only time a price may change is if you request new features, pages or functions that were not in the initial quote. Again everything is clearly quoted and fixed for any additional work and we do begin until you give us confirmation to begin.

I don’t live in Haliax: can I use your services?

Yes! We have clients around the world, from right here in the UK to Canada, USA and Australia. We can communicate by Skype and email with any client so that you are only ever a click of the mouse away from contacting us.

Do you outsource overseas?

No, everything we do is 100% in-house, so we have complete control and ensure that the final product is high-quality..

If I ask for a quote, what happens next?

First of all we contact you to discuss exactly what you need and give you some free guidance based on our years of experience building websites for clients across the world. Once we have listed everything you need into a website brief, we then go away and calculate the time and costs for you before presenting the exact costs for you. Once you give the go ahead we then begin working on your website and keep you updated every step of the way. We build the site on a server that allows you to check progress of the website build. Once everything is completed we then thoroughly test the website and ensure all is working properly. Once you are 100% happy we can then launch the website and provide any on-going support, hosting or marketing that you may need.

What is a content management system (CMS) and/or WordPress?

We use WordPress which is a a Content Management System (CMS) and gives you complete control over your website. This means that if you need to make any changes to your test or images you can do that really easily. This is also the same if you want to add any new pages or a blog post, the list is endless.
