Frequently Asked Questions for Web & Graphic Designs
How long will it take you to design my website?
This depends mainly on two things, One is the complexity of the site, number of pages required, and functionality. The other depends on the client, you need to provide us with the content for your website. If all the content is ready to be published to your website 3 to 4 weeks is kind of standard time.
What kind of website do I need?
Generally there are 3 kinds of websites.
One is a static website, this means once your site is designed it pretty mush sits on the web as it is from year to year, you don’t have the option of logging in and making changes, mainly because the business doesn’t have a need for it.
The second is content management system which has a database created with the site so you can log in from a private location and make edits to the site yourself.
The third is an online shop, if you are selling a product, service or subscriptions and need a secure cart system to handle money and orders for you.
What do I get with one of your web packages
You get your website designed. Once the site is designed and live on the net we do search engine work. We submit your site to all the major search engines and then do some extra work on google. We design all the graphics for your website and will design you a logo if you don’t have one. Your first years hosting and domain registration is free.
I live outside of Ireland can I get a website from you?
Of course, we have designed a lot of sites for UK based clients. It’s great to sit down with someone and plan their new website but if distance is a problem it can be done through various other different communications.
What are your office hours?
Phone calls will be answered from 8am to 8pm Monday to Saturday. You can email us anytime.
Do you offer an aftersales support?
All our websites come with after sales support. Most of our new clients come to us because their last web design company didn’t keep their site updated. There is annual charge of €90 for this you get site back ups – software updates and phone/email support.
I'm nervous of running my own website as I am not that computer literate?
This is a very common fear for people but rest assured we will train you until you feel competent and confident. We have everything set up that you can’t break or delete anything from your website. Running your own website is all about repetition and a little bit of practise.
Do your offer a printing service?
We are just a design company however we have linked up with a printer in Dublin’s inner city who offers very competitive printing prices.
I already have a website but it needs to be updated
We re-develop websites all the time, web design technology changes all the time and we only use the very latest methods to ensure your website will work on smart devices, all the major browsers and is secure from viruses and hackers.
Do I have to host my website with you?
You can host your website with another provider if you like but you need to look after the maintenance of your website if this is the case. This means you will not receive after sales support. We have developed a system that’s allows us to maintain all our website from a central place, if web spaces or located outside of this space it makes it extremely difficult for us to have consistency and continuity as each hosting provider operate very differently.
How much does hosting and domain registration cost?
Hosting and domain names are an annual fee, hosting on average costs 60 to 70 per year. Domain names go from €10 to €30 per year. For example a .com costs ten euro while a .ie costs thirty euro. Remember when you get a web package from Dubsbhoy Designs the first years hosting and domain name is FREE.
What does Content Management Mean
A content management system (CMS) is a system used to manage the content of a Web site. Over the years Dubsbhoy Designs has developed their own secure CMS, that allows it’s clients to publish information to their website with ease. You can publish news articles, images and videos at the click of a few buttons without needing to know anything about web design. We do provide training with all our CMS packages.
How long before my website is on google?
This varies from site to site but on average it can take up to 3 months before google starts to index your site. We have a track record of getting our websites to the front page of google.
