Frequently Asked Questions with regards to Stewpendous Web Design

Setting up a website of your own for the first time can be quite a daunting task and if you have any questions or queries then please don't hesitate to drop us an email and we will be happy to try and answer any questions. However before doing so it may be worth having a look at the list of questions below to see if your query is covered in there already as these are common questions we get asked by people and chances are your query has already been asked before by somebody.

Why do I need a website?
To maximise the exposure of your organisation or company. You dont have to be a retailer to need a website, just having a basic site with some contact details and some basic information on gives you access to millions of potential customers.

What do I get for my money?
A simple, professional looking, static html website built to your specification.

Do I need to provide you with anything?
Ideally we require a logo in electronic format, contact details, any pictures and textual contact for the site and as much information of how you want it to look as possible.

You will also need some web hosting and a domain name. You can either choose one of our packages which includes this or if you would rather shop around for your own hosting then you can choose one of our "design only" packages and simply pass us on the details of your hosting which you purchase so we can put the site live. There is no obligation whatsoever to get your hosting through ourselves.

Do I not get a domain name and hosting included?
It depends which package you choose. We offer packages which include competitive website hosting and the registration of a domain name or we do "design only" packages where you basically just get the website and you purchase some hosting seperately yourself and simply pass us on the details. Which option you choose is entirely up to you - there is no need for a website to be hosted by the company who created it and there are plenty of web hosting companies out there so you are free to shop around and we are happy to give any advice. There are some suggested hosting companies on our links page.

Why is it so cheap?
Basically because the website itself and the process of building it is kept as simple as possible. All contact is done via email and the sites we build basically only contain what you need - emphasis is made on making it look professional, easy to use and containing essential information only rather than cramming it full of quirky features that are not really needed. We do not look to tie you in in any way either in that the fee you pay is a one off payment and you have the option to choose your own web hosting etc - there is no obligation to use our services for this.

What if I need to update my site?
There is no ongoing maintenance agreement included in the price. However if it is literally just some small textual changes then if you email these requests through then the likelihood is these can be done without charge. Any more complicated maintenance will incurr a charge dependant on the degree of work needed (please email with details for a quote). Alternatively the sites are built so that anyone with a basic knowledge of HTML and website design can easily make changes so again you are not tied to us.

Where is my site hosted?
If you choose to have hosting included in your package then your hosting is organised through a third party company called streamline.net. These are a very big and reputable hosting company who offer an extremely reliable service. Alternatively you can organise your hosting through any of the many other companies out there.

Who is my domain name registered to?
Any web hosting and domains which we organise and purchase for you are done so in the name and company name with which you provide us with meaning that the domain name is yours and not registered to us in any way. This means you are not tied into us in any way and can easily move your domain to new hosting in the future should you wish. One thing to point out with this though is that domain names do need renewing usually every 1 or 2 years and this responsibility falls with the domain name owner. We do not accept any responsibility for renewing domain names - correspondance will be sent to the owner usually via email in advance of a renewal being required so please make sure that the contact information you originally supply us with is as accurate as possible and if any of it changes please let us know and we can advise you to what steps you need to take.
