Frequently Asked Questions
How Long Will It Take to Build My Website?
Depending on the amount of content (text, images, forms, etc.) it typically takes up to four (4) weeks.
This is based on the amount of information provided by the client early on; along with the current projects pending at TheMillCreek.net
How Much Will It Cost?
The cost will be dependent of what will be going on the website and the number of web pages. There is "no one size fits all."
I have (or need) a domain name. If you have a domain name, TheMillCreek.net will need access to your account, wherever it's at. For example, if you obtained your domain name through GoDaddy.com, we will need to have access to the account to update settings for your website. If you don't have a domain name, we can secure that for you.
Website Hosting - What is It?
The web hosting or server is much like the space that you rent out to have your business in. It's merely the space itself. It does not include furnishings like shelves for your products, just as the web-hosting account doesn't include a site for you to sell your products.
Without the hosting services, you won't have a place for your files to reside, so your domain would then become like a disconnected phone number in the phone directory, and your site files would have nowhere to stay.
TheMillCreek.net provides Website Hosting for Websites by TheMillCreek.net
Photos, Images, Graphics, and Videos?
Do I need to provide these? We welcome these from you. However, you must have ownership / permission to use them, due to copyright laws in the U.S. We don't accept these, if you've found them on the Web, and saved to your computer.
We do have access to 1000's of high quality royalty-free professional photos, images, graphics, and videos for use on the websites we create.
Will My Website Be Number One (1) in Google?
Websites by TheMillCreek.net are optimized for the search engines, and rank very well on Google, and on other search engines, such as Bing and Yahoo.
There are many factors that determine on how a website will rank, that is beyond our control, as well as any other web design firm.
Therefore, we do not guarantee a number one (1) position on the search engines. Should you encounter a firm that "guarantees" this position, it is best to turn away from them.
While your website is optimized for the search engines, we do advise our clients steps that can help their ranking in the search engines.
Will I Be Able to Review Website Before Publication and Make Changes?
Yes, you will be able to review your website, prior to publication.
We welcome two minor changes, revisions, etc., provided that they are given to us, at one time.
Multiple revisions may encounter additional fees.
After Publication, Will I Be Able to Have Updates to My Website?
Keeping a website up-to-date is paramount, with fresh content.
These updates may be to products, services, hours of operation, staff changes, events, specials, and so forth.
We do charge for updates. Some of our clients are on a monthly retainer, given the amount of changes they make on a regular basis. Other clients have infrequent updates, and a charged for them.
We do put forth best effort, in keeping fees within reason for the client. We do discuss this area, with prospective clients.
