Web Design FAQs


What's the process?


I’ll email you a list of questions to find out more about you and what you need. I’ll follow up with a phone call or you can come in if you prefer, to make sure we’re clear on the plan for your site. At this stage you need to be collecting al content, text and images to be ready for the next stage. Please make sure all text is spell checked and correct as this is how it will appear in your site. Jpeg and png images no smaller than 1000px are perfect!

Design & Develop

The design phase is the most important (and fun) part where I work on the look, feel and flow of your site. I’ll then send you a link for feedback. From there we make any adjustments to the site and complete the technical side of the site.

Final Check & testing

Once you have checked that you’re happy with everything, I’ll bug checks on all major devices to make sure your site looks beautiful everywhere. Final payment is due once the testing is complete and the site is ready to be launched.

Go Live

The site is launched and submitted to Google for listing. this can take 1 – 2 weeks before your site is listed on Google. This is the time to tell everyone about your site!


You will be able to update content and images and add new pages and blog posts. I will send you a link to videos that take you through making changes so you can refer back to anytime.

 Ongoing Support

If you can’t work out how to do something, or you want to make more substantial changes in the future, just get in touch.

How long does it take to develop a website?

A typical information site of around 5 – 6 pages usually takes around one month, sometimes less if all content is ready to go. An E-commerce site can take 1 – 2 months, again depending on all content, text, and images being supplied on time and the number and complexity of the products.


The cost of a website is determined by the amount of information you wish to include in the site the complexity of the site. This includes things like e-commerce, subscriptions, membership, email newsletters etc

Most custom designed basic small business websites will cost between $1400 – $2000. Which includes custom design, building, SSL certificate and domain name registration. The cost can vary anywhere up to $20,000 for a complex B2B site. E-commerce sites start at $2500.

As a rule of thumb, you will need a shopping cart or online store if you have over 10 products, or more than one category of products. I can advise you if you need a shopping-cart on your site, or if a simple product page and order form will work for you.


New Web Design can point you in the right direction when it comes to promoting your site. We can also optimise your site to get it listed under your chosen keywords on the major search engines and directories such as Google.

What is Web Hosting?

Just like renting an office or shop for your business, you pay to host (or rent) space on the Internet where your website lives.

Do we need to come in to meet you?

Yes you can but you dont have too if your too busy. Ofter a phone call or two and a few emails is all thats needed

Do you write the text/content for my site?
No. Nobody knows your business, your products and your clients the way you do, so preparing the body text is something that you will need to do. We do help with advice on writing web and Google-friendly copy.

You will need to provide all the written content for the site, as well as images, such as logos and photos.

If you need help with writing content, design or photography, let us know and we’ll recommend someone who we trust.


The two ongoing costs of a website are: hosting and domain name registration.

Domain Name Registration – Annual renewal fee
Website Hosting – the rent you pay for your ‘space’ on the internet.

You’re hosting my site, so you’ll update it right?

Well no, but yes! Website maintenance i’snt part of web hosting, though we do offer maintenance plans and updating for WordPress based sites.

What do I need to do?
