How long will it takes for my website to be designed?
The timescale of a website design project is often dictated by the client. If you have a deadline in mind we will endeavour to meet it for you. The most common delay in the creation and completion of a new website is waiting for content (text/images) to be sent to us by the client.
In the majority of cases a meeting isn't necessary and most of our websites are generally completed with communications being done via email and telephone only. We place suggested website designs onto the Internet in a private place where only yourselves and us can view the content. We then liaise with you regularly to discuss the website designs in order that the design and functionality is exactly as you wish.
We fully support any website we design and are always available should you encounter any problems or require any enhancements. We offer website maintenance so that your website need never get out of date.
We also offer a host of other services that you may utilize, such as internet marketing, social pages customizations, cms content updates, etc.
You may move your website to another web hosting service at any time. Once your website design has been completed, we send you a copy of the website on cd. This copy of your website is for your retention.
It is helpful to us if you are able to provide text and photographs in electronic form - for example, the files output by a digital camera and the words in MS word or similar format. If this is not possible, we can help get your information ready for use on the website.
All of our websites are created with search engines in mind and the website design is compliant with search engine guidelines. It is a good idea for your website to be re-evaluated in time as over a period of time the search engines do alter their rules and algorithms and you will want to be certain that your website is kept up to date and complies with new rules etc.
There are thousands of web designers - most advertise on the Internet trying to persuade you to place your website design in their hands. Which web designer should you choose? What knowledge should your web designer have?
There is no simple answer for these questions, but I can reassure you as to why you should choose us because we are the best at what we do and we are a professional web design services company and our mission is simply to provide affordable, professional web solutions to you our valued custom.
You need a professionally developed website, a domain name, and hosting facilities for your website. You also need the website to be uploaded onto your hosting facilities and promoted to the search engines, etc.

Yes! With the 3ple0.com CMS Systems all web pages created are Search Engine Friendly - you can even add your own search engine meta tags to each individual web page if desired. The CMS tools are easy to use - effective and intuitive.
No. We discuss with you your website requirements and then price accordingly and once you have placed an order for your website design with us, that price is strictly adhered to.
Note, however, that in the event where you have requested to make extensive changes to the project design or contents, this will result in changes to the overall cost (and time) of the project.
No! This will depend upon the amount of information you wish to be displayed on your website. If you have many products/services, then it may be advantageous to have a database incorporated into your website development. We would discuss this in details with you and if a database is advised we will explain in detail exactly how this will work. We can tailor your website design to suit your specific requirements.
There are many different methods which can be used to update website content. The method you choose and the functionality we build into your website design is solely up to yourself. Although of course we will be glad to advise you which method will suit your needs.
If you have a small website consisting of just a few pages and will only wish to make changes very infrequently, then usually it is more cost effective simply to ask 3ple0.com to carry out these changes for you. Other methods which are frequently chosen are largely dependant upon how much data or information and pictures you have and how you store this information at present.
We can provide an online content management system (Administration panel) where you can either update individual products/pages/services or particular sections of your website. e.g. company news.
Alternatively we can provide functionality such that you can upload your entire product ranges to the website in one action using spreadsheets etc. We can also add databases if you wish.
No. Once your website is designed it belongs to you and you can commission anyone to update it for you - although of course we would like to think that you are happy with our services and will continue to use us for your website maintenance.
Your website visitors will see some things differently depending on their browser, screen resolution setting and their individual computer settings and toolbars. We design websites with that in mind and preview them in several browser types and resolution settings before publishing. Obviously as technology alters then eventually all websites may need re-evaluation.

No web hosting service can guarantee 100% uptime. However we can say that our web hosting parner servers have had 100% up time for many years. Should their servers have any problems they do have the necessary backups in place to deal with this issue very speedily.
Yes we do use flash as and when required. It is important to note that there are times when flash animations can be an asset but it would be unwise to use "flash" to create an entire website or even entire pages of your website as search engines are not able to read the content of flash and therefore any words used in animations will not be indexed by the search engines.
Generally it is best to use flash for smaller banners, advertisements or demonstrations and incorporate the flash animation into a web page which also includes some written text in html. This way the search engines will be able to index your information.
Contact us to get more information if so desired.
Yes you can have email addresses and you will probably wish you set-up several email addresses as well. E.g. email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, etc.

Visitor statistics record information such as where you visitors are coming from and which pages they looked at, which search engines are being used, which phrases are being typed into the search engine, the device they used, and many more interesting web tracking information, which you should find useful for future marketing campaigns.
No! We take care of all installations necessary for your website.
Yes you can. We have Secure Servers (SSL) which use the latest encryption methods to ensure that your customers can buy from your website knowing that the information they entered are secured and safe.

If the website we have designed for you includes a Content Management System then you can access your administration areas from anywhere as long as you have an internet connection and make updates instantly as frequently as you wish. If your website is a smaller website and was designed w ithout using this type of system and you don't have any html skills, then we can update the website for you. Our charges are very reasonable.
The Content Management Systems really are very easy to use and do have explanatory notes included where necessary. We run through the administration screens with you when we design the website for you - however if at any time you have any questions we are available at the end of the telephone to run through the procedures or answer any queries you may have.
The cost of a website varies depending on the website and complexity. A small web site with just a few static pages would cost around US$200 whereas a full ecommerce website with a large number of pages and a CMS system could cost you in the thousands.
