Answers to a few of the most commonly asked questions about web site design and establishing an Internet presence. Don't see an answer to your question here? That's okay, just let us know what's on your mind and we'll get back to you as soon as possible.
How much will a website cost?
The cost of a web site varies depending on the site and complexity. A small web site with just a few static pages would cost around $500 whereas a full ecommerce website with a large number of pages and a CMS system could cost $5000 or greater. If you give us a call we will be happy to discuss your website design requirements and give you a fixed quotation. Giving a "ballpark" price on a website would be much like giving a ballpark price on a house. Until we've had a chance to determine if you want granite countertops or laminate, it's just tough to say. Discovery is the key.
How long will it take for my web site 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. As a general rule we like to have at least 90 days to produce a website in order to achieve a quality end result
Will my website design be "Search Engine" friendly?
All 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.
I run a small/medium size business and want an online presence to promote my business in a professional manner to new customers and to provide a more professional image to existing customers. What do I need to achieve this?
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.
How do I update my website?
There are many different methods which can be used to update websites. 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 Parkville Designs 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 on line content management system 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.
Am I tied into Parkville Designs for any site maintenance or updates I wish to do once my website is designed?
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
I already have a website and I need help updating it, can you help me?
Yes, we would be happy to look at you existing website and give you a quote for updating it.

The website belongs to you - we send you a copy of the website on cd. This copy is for your retention and should you wish to use another web design or web hosting company - you are completely at liberty to take this copy to them for them to use.
