Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it take to build a website?

A website can be built within 1 week of agreed concept and supply of content (logos, content & images).

What if I have no content?

Don't panic, our team can provide logo design and copywriting facility. We even have professional photographers that can help with any photographs.

Do I have to sign a contract?

There are no contracts. We believe in keeping our customers happy and as such, they will remain with us. For whatever reason, if you choose to leave then you are free to do so at any stage. Hosting is charged annually and you have no obligation to renew.

I hear hosting quality can vary wildly - what do you use?

The servers we use to host your website are fine-tuned and housed in New Zealand. The servers take advantage of high-speed SDRAM, not using hard drives, causing your site much faster than others.

Is this the only cost involved?

This fee covers the build of your website. There will be additional annual fees for hosting, your domain (www.yourbusinessname.co.nz), email facility (This email address is being protected from spambots.
