How much does a web site cost?
I don't believe there is a "standard" web site, so I won't quote you a flat rate. The amount of information on your web site, and how it is presented are up to you. A small web site with only 1-6 pages of standard features could cost as little as $100 a page. A major web site with dozens of pages and lots of special features and custom enhancements could be as much as several thousands of dollars. A typical 4-6 page site should cost around $500. apcstech.net attempts to keep these costs in the $100 a page or less range depending on client needs.
How much Design input can I have?
apcstech.net requires certain design and layout information from you (see the preparation page). apcstech.net does not charge for consultation time. Our goal is to incorporate the clients wants and needs into their Web Site. apcstech.net considers client consultation standard good old fashioned client support and satisfaction. apcstech.net prefers and recommends the use of Skype for coordinating your project. What is Skype? Skype uses your broadband connection to make free voice and video calls over the internet. Skype’s free downloadable software allows you to talk, instant message, transfer files and make video calls to anyone else using Skype.
How long will it take to design and view my website?
apcstech.net will only accept one project at a time, due to this policy, typically the timeframe for initial client viewing and editing input is 3 - 7 days. apcstech.net supplies FREE temporary web hosting during the development, editing and acceptance stages.
What is a Domain Name?
A domain name is a specific web site address that you choose and register. My domain name is "apcstech.net". Most web site developers will supply this service as part of a package. apcstech.net believes that this practice is just a method to hold the client hostage. apcstech.net guides our clients in the process of registering your domain name. Domain name registration typically cost $10 - $15 a year! apcstech.net recommends the $3.99 a month 1&1 Hosting Plan. Which includes domain name registration.
What is Web Hosting?
Once your web site is designed and ready for public viewing they need a "home" on the Internet so they can be accessed 24 hours a day by Internet traffic (your prospective clients). This is done by uploading all of the files required for your website to a web hosting provider which rents you space on their servers on a monthly basis. apcstech.net does not provide web site hosting. apcstech.net guides our clients in the process of obtaining the most efficient, cost effective web hosting services. Most web site developers will supply this service as part of a package. apcstech.net believes that this practice is just a method to hold the client hostage. Web hosting for my typical client is $75 - $100 a year! apcstech.net recommends the $3.99 a month 1&1 Hosting Plan. Which includes domain name registration.
