Frequently Asked Questions About Websites


Most frequent questions and answers about websites.

How much does a website cost?

The cost of a website design varies, depending on the design details, functionality features, and amount of pages needed. An E-Commerce site will typically cost more than a Service-based or Informational website, due to the addition of products. Additional costs will include (but not be limited to): hosting, privacy, domain name, security, and possibly pro-versions of plugins (as needed).

How long does it take to make a website?

A website can take anywhere between 4-12 weeks, if everything goes smoothly and communication goes well. There are many factors that can contribute to a site taking longer to create. If there is a delay in the client sending photos and content to the web designer, then the estimated due dates can be postponed. Other issues can arise from hosting and technical errors to client financial situations.

What is UX and why is it important?

UX stands for User Experience. It is the website experience that a user has when clicking through the pages. A good user-friendly site will have goals to get a user to buy a product or contact for services and is of paramount importance to a website’s success.

Who owns my site after Lead Creative Co builds it?

You do. It’s in our contract. All works produced as a result of a web design project will become the sole intellectual property of our client (you). We only reserve the right to use visual representations of the final website as part of our project portfolio. Hello, Backlink!

What is Hosting and why do I need it?

Web hosting is a type of internet hosting service that provides an opportunity for organizations and individuals to have their website accessible via the World Wide Web. It’s basically a house and address for your website to live in. Common hosts include BlueHost or CyberBasement of Colorado Springs.

How often do I need to update my website content?

Keeping your site content updated each month can help immensely with the search engines. A good rule of thumb is to go through each section of each page and update one section with more current information, or even just rewording it, monthly. Users want the newest info and search engines will give it to them. Blogging each week can help even more, with the current word count recommendation for blog posts hovering around 1,300-1,700 words.
