How much does Digital Brainchild charge?
How much we charge depends on the types of services we are providing our
clients with and the amount of work involved with providing those services. We
typically charge a flat rate to clients that require a one-time development
project. For example a typical informational website can cost between $500 and
$1500 depending on the size of the website. After your website is completed
we will work closely with you to maintain the website and update it as needed.
The cost of maintaining your website will depend on several factors and
therefore is not easily answered without first determining your website needs.
For those customers who choose to take advantage of our web hosting services,
we will make minor changes and updates at no additional cost. Please
if you have any questions regarding your payment options.
How much are hosting charges and what are the different hosting packages offered?
Website hosting fees are based on the type of website you want hosted and the
complexity of its' functionality. To see the different hosting levels please
visit the services section of this website. In a nutshell, a site like
http:www.digitalbrainchild.com would be charged the standard hosting fee of
$29.99 each month. If your website does not need to communicate with a
database and it only contains between 5 – 10 static web pages then you would be
charged the "Brochure" hosting charges of $9.99. If your website had more then
10 web pages and it does not need database connectivity or dynamic content, the
site could move up into the "Lite" category with a monthly fee of $19.99. The
"Standard" hosting package, which many small business websites fall under, is
for websites that require some dynamic content or minimal database
connectivity. The "Professional", "Developer", and "Enterprise" hosting
packages are designed for online businesses that offer dynamically generated
content to their customer. Examples of dynamic content include product detail
pages displayed when a user selects a specific product, shopping carts that
maintain the products or services a customer selects, and online ordering
processes that enables customers to complete an ordering process online. The
“Professional” hosting package has a cost of $39.99 a month and includes
database management and updates for your products or services. For sites that
have online ordering process and require secure Internet connections, the
“Developer” or “Enterprise” hosting package is required.
How much is it going to cost to maintain my website after it is completed?
The cost of maintaining a website can vary dramatically depending on the size
of your site and the level of functionality you wish to pursue. Not including
your monthly hosting charges, updates are charged based the time it takes to
complete the changes. For customers who choose to take advantage of our web
hosting services, we will usually make minor or moderate changes to your site
at no additional cost. Customers who do not use our hosting services will be
charged an hourly fee of $40 an hour. The time it will take to complete your
updates will be approximated in advance so that you will have a good idea of
the total cost of the changes being made.
How long will it take to design and create my website?
The time it will take to develop your website will depend on several factors.
We start by determining the size and functionality of the website. Websites
that require a significant amount of functionality such as shopping carts,
order processing, and secure connections take longer to develop and test. Web
sites that are relatively simple in design and functionality can usually get
created within two months; however in many cases that timeline is extended
because we have not received the necessary website content. You can decrease
the total development time by taking some time to think about what you want on
your website and providing us with that content in a timely manner.
What kind of content do I need to provide you with for my website?
The content you will need to provide us with will depend on the type of web
site you are creating and what information you want to be presented to your
site's visitors. A few examples of content can include a company profile,
descriptions of products or services offered, company contact information,
frequently asked questions and product or service warranty information. During
our free consultation we can provide you with more details about what content
you will need to provide us with.
Can Digital Brainchild create a logo for me to use on my website and business cards?
Our graphics team will work closely with you to create a logo that will best
represent your company. We will provide you all the necessary logo file formats
to use on a website, business cards, letterhead, or even fabric embroidery.
The cost of creating your logo will depend on the complexity of the design and
how long it takes to agree on the final design. Most logos can be completed for
$100 - $250. To reduce your cost we recommend spending some time thinking about
how you want your logo to look and by providing us with as much initial input
