This is a list of questions that I am asked quite frequently (thus, the title, Frequently Asked Questions). If there is something that I can help you with that is not covered here, please feel free to contact me, and I will do my best to answer any questions you may have.
- Site Content – What Do I Put On My Site?
That would depend on the goals of your web site. If you run a business website you would include as much information about your products or services that your customers would need to purchase from you. One thing to keep in mind-search engines love content, so the more you can say the better. 200-300 words is not a bad aim. Include your keywords and key phrases throughout, especially near the top. Also, you can check here for some suggested pages.
- Can I see the website while it is being made?
Yes! I will provide you with a private web address where you can watch the progress of your website as it’s being built and let me know if there are changes you’d like. Your input and suggestions are highly encouraged!
- Do you do Flash?
Not at this time.
- Can I update my website myself?
Yes, WordPress offers a very intuitive password-protected administrator area where you can edit pages with ease from any computer.
- How long does it take to have a web site designed?
The time frame is determined by the size of your web site, the complexity of your site design, and my current client design schedule. It will also depend on how long it takes for you to get needed material to me. Usually about 7-14 days for a full website.
- Who owns the copyright to my website?
You own it (please note that I cannot transfer ownership of items which are not mine to transfer), with the exception of the original .PSD files, which remain under copyright of AAWD unless purchased outright. I retain the right to use an image of your web site on any part of this web site as a representation of my work, as well as a live link to your web site. Both of these conditions work to your advantage, as it will help the search engines find your web site.
- What is an URL?
It stands for “universal resource locator”. This is the address typed in to view your web page on the Internet. For example, you would type in http://www.angelsaffordablewebdesign.com to access my home page.
- What is a domain name?
A domain name is a specific web site address that you choose and register. My domain name is “angelsaffordablewebdesign.com”.
- What is Web Maintenance?
Maintenance is a fee paid to keep your site updated with new content which you provide. Most good web sites have new content updated regularly. Fresh content is what will keep your visitors coming back. After your site is complete, you might notice something that you wish you’d worded differently, have an address or phone number change, a new service to add, etc. I’ll maintain and update your site free of charge for 30 days after it’s complete.

- Do you have any policy on adult or software sites?
I don’t build sites with illegal copyrighted materials such as unauthorized images, pirated software (warez), pirated music etc. Accounts that are found to be in violation of this condition may be terminated without notice, and no refunds will be given.
- Do you offer any type of discounts?
Yes, on occasion I’ll run some sort of special, although my rates are already amazing as they are : )
- I live in a different country. Can I order a website from you?
Your location is not a problem. The flexibility of the Internet enables me to work with clients in almost any country.
- Are there hidden fees?
There are no hidden fees. Depending on your design and the work required, your cost may be different than what was originally estimated-either higher or lower. Remember that it is an estimate, not a quote. If I’m creating a 10 page website for you, and along the way, you decide to add, for example, 7 more pages, 5 additional images and a video, you obviously realize these items will incur an additional cost.
- I want you to design my web site. Now what do I do?
If you have decided you want a web site or have any questions, send me your basic details using the web design estimate request form.
