How long will it take to build the website?
Once we have started building your new website we aim to provide a link to proof in 1 > 2 working days (we are super quick!).
However if you have requested extra pages or features then the build time may increase slightly. So please consider this ahead of requesting any additional items.
When you have received the link to proof the website it will then reside with you to communicate any further requirements or adjustments. We will work with you as quickly as possible to move the website towards completion and sign off.
If you have a preferred deadline or launch date please communicate this to us at the start of the project.
Why can’t you provide an exact start or completion date?
There can be many different unknown variables which could influence the start of a project. For example if a prior project were to take longer than expected or we were to encounter an unforeseen problem then it could slow down the progress of subsequent projects. But equally, it can also go the other way and things can progress more quickly.
For this reason we can only provide an estimated start date, which will be communicated to you once content is received and again when the project is allocated to a designer.
We advise against planning any solid go-live dates or launches until you have received first proof of the website (allowing you to determine what remaining work needs to be completed) and only once you have held a conversation with the Designer to see what is feasible.
When will the website go live on the internet?
When you are happy no further changes are required to the website we will provide you with a sign off form to submit back. This will mark the end of the project and prompt instructions from us explaining how to put the new website live against the domain name.
This stage of the project will not be triggered unless you inform us when you are happy to sign off and ‘go live’ – which is when the new website will be attached to your domain name and publicly available on the internet.
How long will it take to put the website live?
Once the domains IP is changed as instructed by us, the new website will go live almost instantly. However it can take a short while to propagate across different ISP’s and this is normal.
*Changes to the domain do not sit under our control and will either need to be applied by you (via the domain control panel) or by your domain registrar (being the easiest option).
