Quite often in web design and IT, people use words that go straight over the ordinary folks head.
Here we have collaborated a list of FAQs that we think will help..
What is Search Engine Optimisation? (SEO)
A search engine is a program that searches for the keywords a user is looking for. Google is the most used search engine in the world with over 63,000 searches per second, which is over 5 billion searches per day!
Search Engine Optimisation is the process of maximising the number of visitors to a website and increasing the visibility of the website on search engines. This can be done in a variety of ways such as ensuring your website is optimised for mobile users, getting good reviews from customers and using key words.
What is a domain name?
A domain name is your website address which allows users to access your website. Your website will have a domain name, for people to use to locate you. It will also have an IP address, which is what the computer / mobile device uses to locate your site.
What is CMS?
CMS stands for Content Management System. This is a type of software application that allows people to create, edit and publish information online. It’s like a database that holds all of the data and presents it in website form in an attractive and easy to read format.
What information do I need to provide so you can create a website for me?
That’s easy! To start with we need:
- Your business name
- Domain name
- Contact Details
- Brief overview of your business and what service you provide.
- Brief overview of your team
What is “hosting”?
A host keeps all the web pages of the hosted website on their server. They manage the setup and take care of any technical issues to ensure a website is visible and works correctly. They also have a very high-speed connection to the Internet to ensure smooth viewing of your website.
Can I add more pages to my website at a later date?
Absolutely! We often find that once a website has been created and our clients have familiarised themselves with it and started to get visitors to their site, more pages are required to give more depth and increase the content. Just get in touch with us and we can give you a quote for the number of additional pages you require.
Can I link to my social media pages from my new website?
Yes you can and in fact, we recommend it. If you have a Facebook or Twitter page or even an Etsy shop, it’s a great idea to add those links to your website. This can often increase your audience significantly and encourage people to interact with you on social media.
