We are in the business of answering your questions. Some of the more frequently asked questions are posted below. Many more come up during the design and implementing process. We strongly believe that our clients need answers and often there is more than one option available to them. We'll inform you of them so you can make the best possible decision.

What should I be considering once I have decided on building a website?

    Deciding on a website is the first step. Below is a short list of considerations, in no particular order.

  • What is the purpose for the website (its goal)?
  • Will your site require regular updates? If yes, who will perform the updates?
  • What are your website's initial design and annual budgets?
  • When do you need the site functioning?
  • Who will respond to incoming website emails?
  • Who will be your visitors?
  • Will you be selling anything?
  • How will visitors find your site (think keyword searches)?
  • Have you any domain name(s) in mind?
  • Do you have any colors and layout in mind for the site?
  • Are you a member of any organization that you want to share with the world?
  • Where will your website(s) be hosted?
  • Do you have a logo?
  • Will you want to embed a video on your site?
  • Creating trust with your web visitor is important. How will this be accomplished?
  • Will your business be sending newsletters to your prospects and customers?

There are many more questions that can arise during our consultation. Web-Rx Consulting is happy to answer them all.

What types of websites are there?
  • Basically, there are "static" websites built with HTML code that rarely requires changing or updating. This type of website usually displays the same information to all visitors. Similar to handing out a printed brochure to customers or clients, a static website will generally provide consistent, standard information for an extended period of time. Although the website owner may make updates periodically, it is a manual process to edit the text, photos and other content.
  • There are also "dynamic" websites which are written using all server-side code (such as PHP) and those which combine HTML with server-side code. These allow for interaction and updating of its content. The main purpose of a dynamic website is automation. A dynamic website can operate more effectively, be built more efficiently and is easier to maintain, update and expand.

We'll help you define what type you need based upon your website goals.

Why should our organization have a professional website vs. one from site building software?

The world is evolving and the internet audience is growing. A professional web presence is very desirable. Sure you can use web building software that builds you a design based upon what the software is capable of but consider these points:

  • Site building software limits your layout options and their templates are your only choices.
  • Site building software typically can't add any functionality (make it a dynamic site) so it is limited to being a static website.
  • A professionally designed site can set your organization apart and create a great "first impression".
  • You can have your site designed to look and function they way you want it.
  • Your website "brands" your organization as unique. A unique design sets it apart.
  • A website is affordable marketing, 24 hours a day, every day.
  • A website "connects" you with your customers, friends, supporters, etc.
  • Your website tells who you are, what you offer and how to find you.
  • Your competition probably has a website; can you afford not to have one better than theirs?

We have a website but it is several years old. Should we update it?

Absolutely! Keeping your website looking up to date is very important. Whether you have a static or dynamic website, your website should have current content and look its best. Visitors who see no changes tend to believe the site has been abandoned or has nothing new to offer them.

Can Web-Rx register my domain name for me?

We are not a domain name registrar; however, we can register the name for you (you retain all rights) or we can suggest a reliable registrar where you may perform the registration. We will also assist you in deciding which domain name is right for your website. We'll do the research for you!

Does Web-Rx design websites for multiple browsers?

Yes. Web pages can be rendered differently by each browser. We design with compatibility in mind for the most popular browsers. Building websites to function properly and render correctly in multiple browsers is a fact of life for web designers. Even when a design has been tested, browsers are updated and sometimes the website can "look broken".

Our business requires a secure, web-based program. Can you provide that?

Yes! We have experience in working with PHP/MySql databases, secure logins, etc. Your needs can be translated into a useful, secure design using available or custom scripts. We will work with you to provide what you require.

Do you accept credit cards for payment?

Credit cards add to operating overhead. All of our clients prefer paying by cash or check. We have decided to not accept credit cards to reduce your costs.

Do you guarantee your work?

We are so certain of your satisfaction that we offer a 100% money back guarantee on our work (certain restrictions and limitations apply). Effective communication is the path Web-Rx Consulting uses to provide the site you wanted.

We take the risk out of hiring a web consultant!

I live outside your area. Would you build my site?

Web-Rx Consulting prefers to have a relationship with its clients. Person to person meetings help in building that relationship and the sharing of information during the design and after the site is completed. We have found that long distance clients do not always benefit when there is no direct personal contact. It is not out of the question, though.

I have seen "walk-on" people introducing a website. What is this called?

In general terms, these flash videos are called video spokespersons. They are made by professional companies who hire actors who deliever your script wearing clothing you select and using delivery styles you choose. Typically they are 30 seconds in length.

These video spokespersons can add to the appeal and professionalism of your website. Web-Rx Consulting has installed video spokespersons for our clients.

I understand my website requires hosting. Can you provide it?

Web-Rx Consulting offers hosting to all its customers; however, our clients can have their website hosted anywhere they wish. We have vetted a few web hosting companies who offer reseller hosting packages. Web-Rx Consulting uses these professional hosting companies because of their technical support, 99%+ uptime and high tech data centers.

Our clients host their websites on Web-Rx Consulting's servers because they like having the peace of mind we offer.
