Frequently Asked Questions
If you have a question not answered here please get in touch and I’ll be happy to discuss.
Your New Website
Will my website work on mobile phones and tablets?
Absolutely. All the websites I build are fully responsive and are tested on all device sizes. Try resizing this page in your desktop’s browser.
Will my website load quickly?
Like lightening! It will be based on the same hardware and software as this very website. It loaded quickly, right? It should, it uses the latest servers with 100% SSD drives and server-side caching. On top of that, all the code and images are optimised to be as lean as possible, making sure your visitors don’t have to wait.
Will my new website be easily found by search engines?
SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) is built into your new website allowing it’s content to be easily indexed by search engines like Google.
Additionally, I make Google aware of your new website and force it to crawl and index your website’s pages.
Can I have my own personalized email addresses?
Yes. The Web Lad managed hosting package includes unlimited mailboxes so you can have as many variations of @yourdomain as you like.
Additionally, you can have as many aliases as you like. For example: email@example.com has the alias firstname.lastname@example.org so I’m sure to get all the site’s emails in one mailbox. However, I can tailor any solution to your requirements.
Getting It Built
How long will it take to build my new website?
That entirely depends on the size of your project: the number of pages to be built and the complexity of any additional functionality.
Will my website be custom-made and unique?
Yes. I build every website from the ground up with a design completely bespoke to your business and based on your unique requirements.
How do you manage each projectly efficiently?
I use the very popular Trello platform to manage all my clients’ projects. You can see how the project is progressing and even collaborate during the design and build.
Pricing & Payments
How much will it cost?
Each project is priced individually. Get in touch for a no-obligations chat about your project or complete the quick quote form.
What are your payment terms?
Unless discussed otherwise, I require 50% upfront with the remainder payable on completion.
What forms of payment do you accept?
I prefer payment by direct bank transfer but I also accept Paypal, cash and beer.
Contact & Support
How can I ensure your emails don't land in my spam folder?
I’ve written this guide on how to make sure my emails get through to you.
What if I have a problem once my website's built?
Contact me and we’ll sort it out. Although, with my proactive managed service, I’ll most likely know of any issue before it becomes a problem.
What if I need a change to my website once it's built?
Your managed service covers minor changes, like changing static content on pages. You control the content of your blog, if you have one.
If you require a major change, like building new pages or a change of design, I will provide a custom quote for those changes.
