Frequently Asked Questions
We’ve designed this service for people who need an affordable professional WordPress website and are flexible about the exact design and layout. The quality of your website will be just as good as a bespoke web design service, but it’s much more affordable.
Template Web Design is right for you if:
- You like the look of one of our demo sites
- You need a fairly simple website with a few pages of information – plus blog/news if required
- You will benefit from the security of a managed website service, fully maintained by our WordPress experts.
- You are willing to be flexible about the exact design and layout to avoid having to pay for a much more expensive web design service.
- You need an information-based website without any specific functionality (other than what you can see on the demo).
The price includes up to 4 pages plus a blog/news page. The initial setup includes adding your content and up to 1 hour of revisions and support (which is more than most people need).
The monthly hosting cost applies for as long as you need the website (minimum 12 month tie-in). It covers your web hosting, software updates and maintenance.
The service is a fully managed, hosted WordPress service. This allows us to design your website for such an affordable price. This means that you have less control over the design and will have to choose from a restricted choice of page layouts and features.
This isn’t necessarily a problem because we have skillfully designed our affordable websites to include all the main elements that most people want. However, if you have very specific ideas and aren’t prepared to compromise then it may not be suitable.
Your website can contain any or all of the pages and layouts from your chosen demo site. We can rename the pages (e.g. your Services page may be called ‘Products’ or something else), remove any pages you don’t need, and remove any sections from the page layouts shown on the demo. We can also adjust the main accent colours to suit your brand.
You can only have the layouts and features that are shown on the demo. This is because the Simple Site websites are designed to follow a set format so that we can develop them more quickly without sacrificing on quality.
Only the pages and functionality shown on your chosen demo site are included in the initial setup.
You can pay separately for additional pages and specific extra features. There is no limit to the number of pages that your website can have and we can work with you to create more complex navigation structures.
Please see the FAQ on ‘Can I install plugins?
Yes. If you already have a domain name then you can use it for the new website. If you don’t have one then we’ll register a domain name for free. (The domain name itself will have a cost) We’ll work with you to choose a suitable domain name based on what is currently available.
The simple answer is no, at least not for the first 12 months.
Our service is a hosted WordPress service. Your website will be hosted by Urban Cloud Web Design on our superfast premium Australian server from the world’s biggest WordPress host. This means that your website will load significantly faster than almost all other hosts.
You have two choices available for you to pay for your website –
- Pay the cost of the website in full at the start of the project
- Pay a 50% deposit before work begins and then pay the remaining 50% in 1 weeks time when the design is complete. Full payment must be made before your site goes live.
- Pay a $174 deposit then spread the rest of the cost of your website over 6 months. There will be an additional fee added if you decide to go with this option.
Once you decide to go ahead, you will need to provide us with the text and images for each page of your website. We will build your complete website using one of the pre-designed WordPress themes shown in the demos.
Our WordPress experts will create a unique website for you, based on the demo site for your theme. When you’re happy with everything, we will work with you to put your affordable web design live.
The finished WordPress website will be ultra-professional and designed to sell your products or services (or whatever else you want to achieve from the website!).
Yes, you will have access to the WordPress admin for your website. This will let you edit pages and posts without needing any technical expertise. We will provide full documentation.
Your website can include a blog (optional). This uses the standard blogging features built into WordPress. You can use it to post regular content – whether this is blog posts, news articles, press releases etc. When we set up the website for you, we will add one sample blog post and divide your blog into categories if required. You can add as many posts as you like in future.
Your posts can include text, images, video and audio.
Your affordable WordPress website will be built to be SEO friendly. You will be able to optimise SEO data such as title tags for your pages and posts. We’ll set up Google Analytics so that you can access data about how people are using your website, which you can use to improve your conversion rates.
Your website will come pre-installed with our list of pre-approved plugins relating to SEO, image optimisation, contact form, newsletter signup, performance, anti-spam etc.
Once your site is live you will be able to install any plugins that you wish as you have full control over your site.
You will own your website after the first 12 months. After that, we will host and maintain it for as long as you continue paying the monthly fee.
Since the service is a hosted WordPress service, there will be a fee to cover our time if you ever wish to move to a different hosting company. Please see the section on cancellations, below.
There is a 12-month minimum contract, after which you can cancel at any time.
If you decide to move to a different web host after the 12-month minimum tie-in, we will need to do some work to move your website to a standalone WordPress installation, outside of the Simple Site system. The cost for this would be $400. We can then give you access to the files and database so that you can migrate it to your own host.
Your website will be supported and maintained by Urban Cloud Web Design. We offer a 24 hour, 365 days ticket based technical support service for any technical issues that cause problems for your website.
For other support matters, We will provide up to 1 hour of free support during the process of building your new website. Any further support once the website is live will be billed separately.
Our standard rate for support is $80 per hour (minimum billable period of half an hour), or if you need regular support then we can offer a discounted rate. We will always tell you in advance if any support you request will be chargeable.
