Frequently asked questions about our website development costs
How long does it take to design a website?
From the moment you get in touch with us to the moment your new site goes online, designing a website takes just about four weeks. We always provide a detailed timeline so you can follow up on your site’s progress as it unfolds.
Can I add content to my own website?
Yes! With Combustible, you will remain entirely independent, and in full control. You will have access to all of the features on your content management system (CMS). You can add, modify, or delete any of your web content, and customize your widgets, WordPress theme, or any other features that can be controlled using your CMS.
If you’re a little lost, we offer WordPress website training so you can feel completely at ease when handling your website on your own.
Does your pricing include content creation?
Our professional website design cost does not include content creation: writing and design require two entirely different skill sets. However, if you already have SEO-optimized web content on your current site, our WordPress developers can integrate it into your new site no problem.If you’d rather delegate your content writing to an SEO expert, we offer specialized copywriting services. We can also use stock photos to liven up your website if you are unable to provide original photos.
Can I add more pages to my site on my own?
Each web design package includes a specific number of pages that we will add to your new website. However, you can also purchase more pages if your requirements change, and you can even integrate more pages yourself if you want. If needed, we can teach you how to add pages on your own during a web design training session.
What web hosting and maintenance services are included?
Our custom WordPress site cost includes maintenance and hosting services. More specifically, we will conduct the following:
- Periodic WordPress theme updates
- Periodic WordPress updates
- Updates for any add-ons/modules used by the website
- Daily website backups
Can I modify the general structure of my website?
Yes. However, more in-depth modifications like changes to its architecture or design (CSS) should be made by our designers and developers. These types of changes are not included in our website development costs. Instead, they are billed at an hourly rate of $100, invoiced either monthly or quarterly. Any significant redesigns or changes will be assessed individually, and a detailed quote will be provided.
Once it’s finished, does my website belong to me?
Once all of your monthly fees are paid off (which typically occurs after the 12th month of invoicing), your website will be all yours. At this point, you will be free to continue or terminate your web hosting and maintenance plan with Combustible. You also have the option to pay your fees all at once: in that case, your site will be turned over to you as soon as it goes online.
Do the website development costs include a domain name?
No, the cost of a domain name (example: yourwebsite.ca) is not included in our web design pricing for the following reason: to maximize flexibility, we recommend that our clients purchase their domain from a specialized provider. That way, if you want to switch hosting services, you can keep your domain name – and your independence. We can also guide you through the process of buying a domain: all you need to do is give our web developers access to your website so they can configure your hosting parameters.
Is SEO optimization included in the price?
Our professional website design cost includes complete technical optimization of your site according to SEO best practices. Download speed, ergonomics, page indexing: all of the most important technical criteria related to SEO will be applied to your site. Our SEO experts collaborate closely with our web developers to ensure you get the most out of our expertise – and a chart-topping finished product. Just keep in mind that content strategy and content creation are not included in the cost to build a website.
