FAQ

Why does my website look different in different browsers?

Consistent browser display is quite difficult. No matter how browser compatible you make your website, it will not be 110% exact in each and every browser. It will virtually appear the same in most all aspects but there will still be a few things here and there that do not appear to be exact. The biggest issue here is the browsers layout engine. The layout engine is what interprets the CSS code(what makes up the website).

How often should my website be updated?

This all depends on the type of business you have your website set up for and your target audience. Most websites will be designed, and then edits will be made here and there throughout time. If you have a website for something like a local art museum where art pieces are being switched out consistently, you would then need to make edits quite often.

How long does it usually take to design a website?

This depends on the factors involved within the design process. If you have all of the content and graphics ready at the time the website design process takes place then it will go faster than if you wait until after the design process begins. Another key factor to the length of time it will take, is what kind of widgets and plug-ins you want to use and how many pages you are wanting.

An easy way to put it is you and the host of your website. You have ownership of your website once finished but if you miss a hosting payment, your host has the power to shut down your website.

Do I have to host my website with the company that designed it?
