Frequently Asked Questions
How much will it cost for a web site?
Roe Graphics takes on each client with personal interest at heart. Each site is different from the other. Certain programs needed for sites take different amounts of time and will require different scripts and programming. We will have a consultation to understand fully what your site will need and we will provide you with an estimate before we start your project. If you would like a free estimate, or to learn more about how Roe Graphics can help your business, please call 731-660-0700 for an appointment.
If I already have a site, how much will it cost to get it redesigned?
We approach redesign like a new website rather than reworking the existing layout. If you would like to preserve most of your textual content but need a new and better look for your site you require a redesign. We basically build a brand new website from scratch and add in the existing content plus any new content you desire.
How long does it take to have a web site developed?
There are several factors that will affect your project’s timeline. Your own target date is our first concern. The time frame is determined by the size of your web site, the complexity of your site design, and our current client design schedule. Typical turn around time is 3 to 6 weeks.
What if I do not like the design chosen for my custom web site?
When designing your site we take every aspect into consideration to ensure you will be satisfied with the web site design. Before starting any web development work, we show each client three unique home page concepts and tweak the chosen home page design until you are completely satisfied. If you are not completely happy with the design ideas please let us know and we will make changes accordingly.
Why should I pay for someone to design my site? Can’t I just do it myself?
Web site design done right is complex and requires a number of different skill sets that aren’t commonly found in any one person, especially someone that doesn’t do this for a living. Technically, you can build a site yourself. The real question becomes this: can you afford to take time away from your customers and your business to develop your site? Time is money, and it’s often a better use of your time and money to outsource web design projects. If you are planning to design your own web site, Roe Graphics has tools and templates to help you design your own site.
What will my on-going costs be after launching my site?
On-going costs will vary depending on your specific use for your site. These costs will likely include hosting, search engine advertising, web site updates and maintenance, and domain name renewals.
How do I go about getting a domain name for my site?
In order to know what domain names are available a search must be performed. Roe Graphics has a domain search tool that will let you know the availability on any domain name. Being creative is not always a plus. The domain name needs to be easy to remember for customers. First we suggest trying www.yourcompanyname.com ( or .net) if this is not available it is acceptable to think of abbreviated words or alternate names for your site.
What is web site hosting?
Web hosting is a monthly fee that you pay to have your site accessible on the Internet. Hosting is equal to paying rent for server space on the internet. Hosting allows your website to take up a certain amount of space on the web. The cost of hosting depends on the size of your site and bandwidth used monthly. Hosting can be anywhere between $12 (for shared hosting) to $400 (for a dedicated server) per month. For the average customer, hosting will run around $20-$45 a month.
Who will host my site?
Roe Graphics has partnered with various web hosting providers as a re-seller, in order to deliver the right hosting solution for your specific needs and budget.
