Frequently Asked Questions
- How long does it take to make a website?
It varies a lot, but I normally allow around two months for a standard project. A website can be built in a day, but once you factor in the need for consultation, design iterations and most of all – content creation/collation – it’s usual for a standard project to take around eight weeks.
- How soon can you start on my project?
Again, it varies. Hexagon Webworks is just me, so when it’s busy, there will be a wait. Give me a call and I’ll let you know approximate current start dates.
- How much does a website cost?
Please see my pricing page.
- I need some tweaks made to my existing WordPress website, can you do that?
Possibly. Again, I will ask to see & review the website first, before giving you an indication of whether I can help (& if so likely timescales and costs). The content, functionality and build quality of WordPress websites varies tremendously – hence I make a practice of reviewing first so I have some idea what I’m taking on before making any commitment!
- My site needs tweaking but isn’t built on WordPress, can you help?
Unless it’s a simple static website, it’s probably not something I’d get involved with. If you’re considering a rebuild or redesign, do get in touch.
- Can you host my WordPress website for me?
Probably. I always like to review each site first to check I’m happy with hosting and maintaining it; see hosting and support for more details on my hosting package, then give me a call.
- I’m starting a new business and need to get a website built really cheaply. Can you help?
Probably not directly, but here’s some advice: firstly, as with many things, you get what you pay for. If budget is really tight, rather than paying for a cheap (& probably sub-par) website, I suggest finding someone you know who is a bit technically minded (or be prepared to learn yourself!), and asking them whether they’d mind helping you set up a site on WordPress.com. WordPress.com is a service which lets you get started with a new and free WordPress-based blog, but with less of the flexibility of the self-hosted version of WordPress. There are other website building tools too, such as Wix and Squarespace. The end-result is probably not going to be as professional, but if you need a website on a shoestring it’s probably your best option until you can afford a professional site.
- Do you do branding, logo design, brochures?
No, although I can refer you to someone who does – give me a call.
