It is your web site so ultimately, you need to be happy with the look and design of it!
After we have collected all the information from you, including your ideas on how you like the website to look, we will get to work. During this time, you just need to put your feet up and relax!
Once we have a complete website ready, we will send it to you for a first look & review. After receiving your feedback, we will make any necessary changes and send it back to you again for another review.
We will continue this process until you are 100% satisfied with your web site! Just bear in mind that we’re straight shooters and won’t muck around. We believe in honest, up-front communication and we will share our professional opinion if we believe any suggested changes will result in an inferior look or function of the final web site.
This depends on how quickly you as a client can provide us with all the content and images required for your new website. Once we have received all your information, we aim to finish the new website within 4-6 weeks.
Yes of course! We offer revamp packages, please fill out our online quote form.
For any updates of existing sites, we will need the log in details to your web hosting cPanel account and also your current website logins.
Sure can do! Good quality photos that are relevant to your business/message are an essential part of a website. If you don’t have your own, we can source generic stock photos at an additional cost. Make sure to mention this when you submit our no-obligation online quote form.
All Castle Design new website projects include a 14-day post-handover support period. During this time, we recommend you familiarize yourself with your new website and learn how to log in and navigate the backend system. We are ready for all questions and no question is a silly one!
After the 14-day free support period, our normal hourly rates ($80/h) apply. We recommend all web site owners to regularly log in and apply security updates and install new version of software and plugins used on the web site. This is to keep the site secure from intruders and functional, there’s nothing worse losing business due to an old or broken website!
If you don’t have the time or know how to do this yourself, we recommend signing up for a monthly website maintenance package with the friendly team over at WP Co-Pilot.
