Your New Website
It's so easy and once we have your content your website will be running within a week. To do this on time we need:
Site Content - Please Read Carefully!
- The content must be in a MS Word document (.doc/.docx) as follows: page01.doc, page02.doc, page03.doc, page04.doc and page05.doc. The limit is 200 words of paragraph, heading and bullet text per page.
- Up to three photos are permitted on each page. Photos/graphics must be in the order they will appear on the page and in the form of a .jpg file as follows: page01-1.jpg, page01-2.jpg, page01-3.jpg etc. Good quality photos will have a file size of around 100kb. Please do not submit multi-megabyte files.
- We require 5 good quality photos for the header graphic. The Starter Plan uses just one.
- Submit downloadable files as .pdf stating clearly which text on which page provides the link to the downloadable file.
- Your logo must be good quality and be either a .png or .jpg.
- Links to social media sites if you have them.
- A separate list of around ten phrases of two or three words that describe your business - for search optimization.
- We require a 50% non-refundable deposit of the total cost before we can start. This may include as requested by the client - domain registration (R475.00), server setup (R550.00) and one year's hosting/maintenance (R2,160.00). Our account details are below.
- Once the project is complete, the balance is payable before the site is published.
- Should payment not be received 14 days after completion, the deposit will be retained and the contract will become void.
- We will post your site to a temporary location i.e. warthog.co.za/yoursite for comment.
- During development we can perform two edits of a minor nature to the content i.e. text/photo changes. Further edits will be charged at a rate of R250.00 per hour.
- After development we can make changes at a rate of R350.00 per hour payable in advance. For those using our hosting/maintenance plan the changes are free of charge.
- We an make changes of a major nature i.e. page layout, additional functionality at an hourly fee.
- Your site will work perfectly in Internet Explorer, Safari, Firefox and Chrome (98% of browsers). We cannot guarantee that it will work in text-based browsers.
If you have no domain (e.g. yourbusiness.co.za) name:
- We can offer suggestions and see what is available. Registration is R475.00.
If you have an existing hoster:
- We need the FTP (file transfer protocol) details (host, user, password) so we can transfer your new site as quickly as possible. Your host will give you these. Please ensure that we receive these before the end of the project in order to avoid forfeiting your deposit. We will require full payment before we can upload your files.
If you would like to use our hosting/maintenance package (R3,000 annually) we set everything up for you and give you the URL to your site's statistics. The server setup fee is R550.00 once off.
Our Ultimate Plan includes a site visit (within 20kms Durban) to discuss the best way of promoting your business although you are more than welcome to visit our premises in Bellair.
