Frequently Asked Questions
Here at Pixel Cloud Designs we have been enhancing the web experience for many years. In that time we have gained a large amount of experience and knowledge. A result of that is the is finely crafted FAQ page to help answer many of the Frequently Asked Questions we receive.
Websites are new to me, how do they work?
Glad you asked. You can find an overview of our proven processes on our process page.
How much does a website cost?
This answer varies depending on many factors much like shopping for a house or car. We have found that typically our websites begin around $4,000 for a basic business site and extend upwards depending on your individual and unique needs.
How long does it take to design and build a website?
Much like the previous answer, this one depends on many factors such as the size of the website and quality of content you have readily available. If your content isn’t up to snuff it may take longer as we work through refining it. This may take longer, but it is definitely worth launching your site with it’s best foot forward. That being said, a basic site typically takes about 4 weeks from start to finish.
Do I need my own domain and web hosting?
Yes, you don’t want your website to be homeless do you? All kidding aside, we can work with getting you all setup with your existing provider if you have one, or get you setup with one if you don’t. Please note, we work with web hosting providers, we are not a web hosting company ourselves.
Will my website work on mobile devices?
You better believe it! All designs we release are fully optimized to work on all devices. Depending on your requirements we can pay extra attention to design and develop your site using responsive design so it runs silky smooth on mobile devices such as phones and tablets.
Do you do eCommerce/Online store sites?
What is a Content Management System (CMS)?
Simply put, a Content Management System is a tool or framework that enables you to maintain your content yourself without the need for any technical or coding skills. A CMS will allow you to edit or add pages, images, products, or even blog entries to your website – no additional software required. All you need is your web browser and an internet connection. Cool huh?
Is training provided?
Yes, we ensure that all clients are trained on how to maintain their websites.
Can you help me with Social Media and Email Marketing?
You betcha! Either as part of your project or as a separate project, we can include Social Media and/or Email marketing services.
What is Search Engine Optimization (SEO)?
Search Engine Optimization is all about getting good visibility on search engines such as Google. Ideally, you want to be as high up on the search results page as possible. The higher the result, the more traffic (and usually more customers) you’ll likely get.
As with many aspects of your website, there are many variables that go into getting good SEO. One of the most important factors is the content and copy (words) on your website. If the content is focused on well written, keyword rich content, a large portion of the battle is already won.
Do you write the content for my site?
You know your business inside and out and are therefore the best person to create the content. However, not everyone is able to do this themselves. I personally am not a copywriter, but I do have resources available if you require content be written for you.
Can you design my logo?
What is a domain name?
This is your web address. Similar to the number on your house and street it is located on. This normally looks similar to www.yourcomany.com
What is web hosting?
Web hosting is the service that allows people to view your site on the internet. Your website lives on a server in your hosting provider’s data center which they make viewable to the world.
What is WordPress Care?
