FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Domain Name?

A domain name is a unique name that identifies an internet resource such as a website. It is an identification string that defines a realm of administrative autonomy, authority or control on the Internet. Domain names are formed by the rules of the Domain Name System (DNS).

What is your minimum contract term?

How long does it take to build my website?

From ordering your site we deliver a near finished product within 2-3 weeks, sooner if you need us to. We then work with you on any amendments that you feel are necessary and make any minor cosmetic changes at this point. When we design a new financial website for you, we want you to be happy.

Your site is then sent to compliance for final approval, this usually takes one to two weeks. Some networks take longer but only one or two and we'll be able to advise you on this.

A ball park figure of 1-2 months would be fairly normal, it depends on how fast you as a client are able to proceed.
