We can help you with social networking and search engine optimisation. We’ll help you with domain registration, hosting and setting up your new website on your server (contact us if you need further clarification!). This is an ideal solution for new businesses who need a great site – up and running in perfect time for your business startup date!

Frequently Asked Questions

Why do we need both a domain name and hosting?

The domain name is the web address you choose for your business. As an example theDesignPeople’s domain name is “thedesignpeople.com.au”. You will need to pay a company to host your website. When your site is up and running and someone types your domain name and clicks enter, they are automatically directed to the “server” which is held at the hosting company. This will then trigger your website and it will be displayed on the browser of the computer requesting the website.

How much can I expect to pay for registering my .com.au domain?

Domain names vary in cost according to your requirements. For a basic idea though, you should expect to pay about $20-30 per year.

How long does it take to create a website?

We normally like to say about 2 weeks – time to get a proper perspective on your requirements and for the back and forth of ideas and information from client to us. On saying that, it could be much quicker for websites that are smaller – ie one-page portfolio websites.

Do you charge a deposit before you start?

Yes, we normally charge a 30% deposit for all new clients before we begin. Once a job has begun, the deposit is non-refundable.

How can I pay?

There are several choices when it comes to payment. If you live in Australia or the United Kingdom, we have a bank account which accepts direct deposit. Alternatively, you can pay via Paypal if you are from the USA or other country. NOTE: Cheques ARE NOT ACCEPTED.

Do you help with search engine optimisation?

Yes, we can certainly help with this. Towards the end of the design process we will ask you for some information that will help search engines find your website. We will ask you for a “page title”, “page description” and sometimes “keywords”. We can explain this to you in more detail later. We embed this information into the web page and search engines will collect it and add it to their search result pages. You can also choose whether you wish to pay to advertise your site through google (called “AdWords”) and there are also various methods to optimise your page so that search engines give you a higher search rank. We can also give recommendations on companies that deal specifically on SEO.

What some of our clients are saying...

“I would highly recommend Nicholas Morris and theDesignPeople to anyone looking for a professional, efficient and inclusive web design service. Nic spent time with me getting to know what I wanted from the site, how I wanted it to flow, what colours and inclusions I liked. He provided me with easy options for images and themes and was always available for questions. The final site is fantastic, exactly what I wanted and I am getting great feedback from colleagues, friends and clients. Thanks theDesignPeople.”
