What software platform will my website be built on?
You have a choice of WordPress or Joomla. Some customers are familiar with either platform and can choose which platform they would prefer that they will feel more comfortable using once the website is handed over.
Once my website is built, do I still need to buy web hosting?
With all our website bundles, we offer free web hosting for the first year. After the first year, we will invoice you for your web hosting on an annual basis.
Do I still need to buy a domain name for my website?
Every website needs a domain name. However, we offer you a free domain name for the first year. Thereafter, the normal recurring domain renewal fee will be applicable. The free tld(top level domain) extensions that we offer with each bundle are: co.za org.za net.za web.za If you would like an international tld(top level domain) extension such as a .com or .org instead, then that will be added as an additional cost.
Are these prices recurring every month or year?
No. This is a once off cost for your website. The only recurring costs that you will incur is the web hosting and domain renewals that occurs on an annual basis.
Can I change the website content or will I need to hire BlueSteam to do it for me?
Your website content is yours. This is a question that should be asked and decided upon before purchasing your new website. If you know that you want to be able to modify the content once the website is handed over to you, then it would be a good idea to familiarise yourself with the platform of choice so that you do not struggle once the website is handed over. In saying that, each platform is used worldwide by millions and there is a vast ocean of information on the internet for you to research and learn. In the event that you are not familiar with the platform of choice, it is best to hire someone to do it on your behalf.
Do you take in to account my needs of how the website must look and feel?
Absolutely! We will work with you throughout the build process to ensure that you are satisfied with the progress, design and look and feel giving you opportunity to provide suggestions and pointers ensuring that we are on the right track. While the build is underway, we make the website visually available to you online by creating a https://dev.yourdomain.co.za url so that you can watch the entire build process from start to finish.
Can I get access to my website statistics?
Definitely! Your website is hosted on a cPanel server which comes standard with multiple options for tracking your website statistics.
Do you design my logo and other graphics for me?
If you do not have a logo for your business or you do not have any image content for your website, then this will become additional costing on a quotational basis. It’s best to have this content ready before you decide to purchase a website.
Do you provide all the information for me on the website or must I supply the information?
Your website is your business portfolio. This information needs to come from you. We will work together with you to decide on a website layout and structure but the content itself needs to be produced by you or a company representative.
