frequently asked questions
The investment cost of your website depends on your unique requirements and goals. It's different for everyone.
Please understand a website is an investment. In today's world, not having a website or a poorly designed website puts you immediately behind your competition. An effective website not only pays for itself, it can return dividends.
That said, we offer several packages. Inclusions and pricing of the packages can be found here.
We accept Mastercard, VISA, PayPal and check.
We can help you secure and renew your domain name as well as setup your website hosting. However, fees for domain name management and hosting are separate from Making Waves Web Design and paid directly to the hosting provider.
We highly recommend SiteGround for hosting. We use SiteGround for our own website and recommend it to all our clients because the cost is fair, the uptime is phenomenal and an SSL is included at no additional cost.
- Domain name registration: $15/year
- WordPress Website Hosting: $150-300/year (includes SSL)
No. If you already have a website and are happy with your website hosting provider, you do not have to switch companies.
Generally it takes 8-12 weeks from start date. This assumes you are providing the information we request of you (content, current hosting and account information) in a timely manner.
We offer a 30 day support period after you go live. During this time we monitor your website performance and make changes/tweaks that were missed during the testing you performed before going live.
website care plans
Yes. We would hate to see you go but understand hard decisions need to be made sometimes.
Request a cancellation via email to email@example.com, and we will immediately stop the next payment.
At this time we are only offering care plans for websites that we built.
Content update requests and small design improvements are the most common requests, however any change that can be made within a 30 minute window is free game.
We just ask you to be aware that requests for new features will likely result in a formal quote as those commonly go over the 30 minute threshold.
