Frequently Asked Questions

Answers to questions our clients have asked.

Is the listed price all I will pay?

We made it easy by providing all in one packages. About the only reason that it would cost more is if a client wants some special service or third party add-on. In that case both parties would agree on the price. There would be no “surprises”.

How long will it take to complete?

Normally less than two weeks, but it could take longer depending on your content. It also is important for the client to provide any copy, photos and information they want included in a timely manner to avoid delaying the completion.

How do I choose a design or theme for my new website?

Since we design truly custom websites, we do not normally use a theme as such. Many clients will have seen something they like, either a theme or someone else’s website, that they want duplicated. We can use that as a starting point to make something unique for that client. In all cases we work with our clients to achieve the result they want.

Can I make changes after the site goes live?

Sure, all packages include reasonable changes in content or design. In addition, you have complete control over the content of your site and can edit it at any time.

What Is meant by Responsive Design?

A responsive design “adapts” to the device or screen size being used so that it looks good and is accessible on all devices. Every website we design is fully responsive.

What kind of a guarantee do I have that I’ll like my website design?

The best kind of guarantee; you don’t pay unless you are completely satisfied with the design. There is a $25 non-refundable deposit to cover domain registration and setup which is credited to the total price.

What is WordPress?

WordPress runs almost 30% of the ENTIRE Internet. WordPress’ share of the global CMS (Content Management System) market is 50-60% – making it the most popular CMS of them all for the 7th year in a row.

OK, but WHAT IS WordPress? One way to explain is that it’s a CMS that places blocks of user content on a web page in predetermined spots. Early websites were static and hard coded so that anytime you wanted something changed, a programmer would have to do it. WordPress allows a user to write an article, for instance, and once published it will appear properly formatted on the web page.

That’s a bit oversimplified, but in short, it makes it easier to make changes and add content.

You mention Divi in your features. What is it?

Divi is a framework that sits on top of WordPress. It’s usually called a theme, but that’s not quite accurate. A theme generally has a certain look or style and built-in functionality. Divi can really look and function like almost any other theme. One advantage of this is you can make whatever changes you want without changing “themes”. We include Divi with all packages and it’s yours to keep.

I keep hearing about GDPR. What is it?

GDPR or General Data Protection Regulation is the primary law regulating how companies protect EU citizens’ personal data. If a citizen of the EU even visits your website you are legally obligated to comply with this law. In separate laws such as CalOPPA, the use of “cookies” is also regulated. Modern Website Services provides you with the tools to make your site compliant. The final responsibility, however, always rests with the owner of the website.
