Below you will find some of the most frequently asked questions regarding our services. Feel free to use our contact page to ask us anything that is not covered here or if you need any further clarifications. We’ll be glad to hear from you.
What is the cost of creating a website?
Asking how much a website costs, is like asking how much a house costs. It depends. There are two main factors that determine the cost of a website. The first is the website’s complexity and the second is the amount of information that needs to be included in it. Therefore we can’t have a set price for all websites.
You can use our contact form to let us know what kind of website you would like to build and we’ll give you a quote.
How long does it take to build a website?
The absolute minimum time needed for a brand new website to be up and running is 4 weeks. This time will definitely vary, depending on how large or complex the website is. You can use our contact form to ask us and we will let you know how much time we need to build your website, as well as how much it will cost.
Another important factor is how quickly the client is able to send to us the necessary content, like text and high-quality images.
What is needed to create a website?
1. A Domain Name
First of all you need to decide the address or URL of your website, for example proteasoft.com. The name should be relevant to your brand and of course must be available. Domain name prices are typically around 10€ per year.
2. Hosting Space
If your domain name is like the address to your house, then the hosting space is the piece of land that your house will be built upon. Hosting prices can vary considerably according to your specific needs and the server’s quality and speed.
3. Design and build your website
This is the stage where we build your website using best practices, making it responsive and adding the content and functionality you want.
Will I fully own the website you’ll create for me?
Absolutely! After we collect the final payment for your website, you will have full ownership of it. That’s why we require you to buy your domain name yourself, and that’s why we use open source platforms like WordPress to create our sites.
There are many developers and many companies out there that can easily work with WordPress. If at any time, for any reason, you wish to continue the development / maintenance of your website with someone else then you are free to do so.
Other developers or companies might use their own proprietary, closed-source platforms to build your site and therefore they create lock-ins for their clients. You can’t transfer your site to another developer without completely starting from scratch!
We want you to stay with us because you are truly satisfied and not because you have to!
Will you register a domain name for my website?
No we don’t offer this service. We can of course walk you through the process should you need so, as well as recommend a trustworthy domain registrant.
We strongly recommend that you register your domain names by yourself. You shouldn’t pay someone else to do this on your behalf. The domain name of your website is similar to your brand name and no one else should have any access to it. If you lose control over it, it can be very damaging to your business.
We don’t create any kinds of lock-ins for our clients and we believe that this is important in order to build a relationship of trust from the very beginning.
Do you offer web hosting?
Yes we do. Our servers are located in Europe and are fully compatible with European laws such as the GDPR. We offer quality shared hosting, VPS hosting and dedicated server hosting according to your needs. We’ll help you find the most appropriate hosting solution for your case.
Do you require a deposit?
We require a 50% deposit in order to begin the development of your new website. The rest of the amount can be paid after the delivery of your finished website.
What payment methods do you accept?
We use PayPal or bank transfers for our transactions.
