A Content Management System (CMS) gives you complete control over your website, by allowing you to add or change any content on your website - pages, images, news, products descriptions, and prices, the list is endless.
Will my website show up on Google?
Yes. We design websites from the ground up so that they work well with search engines like Google, Yahoo! and Bing. We ensure each page is optimised for the keywords that you want to promote. We register your website and add monitoring tools (Google Analytics for example) so that you can view detailed statistics on the visitors to your site.
Do you provide web hosting?
We do not provide web hosting ourselves. Quite a lot of web design companies who "offer" web hosting are re-sellers who use the services of a dedicated web hosting company. It is also possible that a design company may not have the technical expertise needed to ensure total reliability. We believe that our clients should have complete control over their website, which means a separate web hosting contract between the client and the host, which doesn't tie you to a particular website design company. We will be happy to help you to determine which web hosting company and which web hosting package is the best for your requirements.
How long will it take to design my website?
This largely depends on what is involved, as well as how soon you, as the client, are able to provide us with the essential documents, such as copy and pictures. A simple brochure site can be up and running in 1 or 2 weeks. More complex projects can take longer. When we know your exact requirements, we will send you a contract with a realistic end date. We know that project deadlines are very important: we will always do our utmost to meet them.
Are there any hidden costs?
No. We agree a fixed price with you, which means you know exactly what you will pay. Quotes are always given before we start any work, and costs are clearly documented. The only time we would charge additional fees would be in the instances where a client requests a new page or some additional material or images for the website after work has commenced. Charges for additional work such as this are always given before the work starts.
At the DBIT we are committed to the principles of transparency, accountability and security of the Data Protection Acts 1988 to 2018 and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). We have put in place appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure and to be able to demonstrate that our data processing is compliant.
