Frequently Asked Questions

How long will my web build take?

We have a turnaround period of 15 working days (3 weeks) from the point of completed consultation call, and assuming all content has been provided for the build. Once the booking has been processed you'll receive a call from a member of the team within 5 working days to schedule in a 15-20 minute consultation call at a time convenient for you. The purpose of this call is to discuss your business details and website requirements to enable us to produce detailed content for your website.

What do I need to provide?

The consultation call is designed to capture all of the information we need to build your website, however should you wish to provide content such as a logo, images, menus or product descriptions you can send this over to us via email. Please note that if you have specified that you wish to provide your own content, the build will not proceed until the content is received.

Do I need to purchase a domain transfer?

If you have an existing domain name (e.g. mybusinessname.co.uk) which you have purchased, or use with an existing website, you may want to transfer it over to us to manage on your behalf for the duration of your contract. If you have email accounts associated with your domain we recommend maintaining the domain with your existing provider to avoid any disruption. To do this we will require access to your domain control panel in order to repoint the domain to the new website once complete. Should this not be possible, domain transfers into our management incur an additional one-off fee of £80(+VAT). Please note that email accounts cannot be transferred with the domain, but can be recreated post-transfer. Therefore we also recommend backing up any existing inboxes prior to transfer.


Reasons to transfer your domain:

  • Your existing provider manages the domain on your behalf and is unable to provide us with access to the domain control panel or DNS updates
  • The domain was purchased as part of another web build package through another company
  • You want to consolidate your services with us and not be responsible for renewing the domain upon expiry

will my website appear in search engines?

The websites are optimised for search engines using metadata, keywords, heading tags and SEO friendly copy to ensure that they rank as well as possible within search engine results pages (SERPs), Please note that it can take up to 8 weeks for websites on new domain names to be indexed (recognised) by search engines once live. We do submit all new websites to Google & Bing once live to try and speed up this process, however it is an automated process and therefore not something that we have any influence over.

The Pro package includes the creation of up to 10 pages as part of the build, and access to create unlimited pages from within the editor once live. We can also build additional pages for you which are charged at £75 (+VAT) per page.

Do you upload products for e-commerce subscriptions?

We can also offer a Bulk Upload service for an additonal fee of £1 (+VAT) per product.

Does the website include Google Analytics?
