How long does it take you to design a website?

This depends on the type of website you are having built. Assuming that we have all of the content available, a typical 8 page brochure website takes on average 10 days to design and develop. A website with a built in CMS takes longer, anywhere between 4 weeks to 12 weeks depending on the complexity of the project. An e-commerce website takes the longest, we could specify a time frame here, it really depends on the project.


How long have 00 Design been building websites?

00 Design has been trading since 2012 however we have over 15 years of design and development experience between us. We are especially experienced at building 'mobile-friendly' websites with built in content management systems.

We work with all kinds of companies and businesses throughout the UK (and sometimes Europe!). It doesn't matter what stage your business is at, whether you are just starting out or you are an established company we are always here to listen to your enquiry and help in anyway we can.


Will you help me write the content for our website?

No. However we work with an excellent copywriter who can provide you with a quotation to write your copy and content for you.


Will you provide the images for our website?

No. However we can provide a separate quote for any images you require for your website, we can add this as an 'optional extra' on the quotation.


Will we own the website?

Yes. Once you have paid your final invoice you will own 100% of the website. You are free to do use the website files as you wish.


We aren't based in Staffordshire, does that matter?

Certainly not. Most of our clients are based outside of Staffordshire. We the internet, email, phone, skype & even the postal service we are able to create the same fantastic websites whether your company is based next door to us or your office is at the other end of the country.

What is a CMS (content management system)?

A CMS stands for content management system. There are 2 types of websites, firstly a brochure style websites is typically used for displaying information. It's a website that is generally suited to those who don’t need to make regular changes to any copy or content, as this requires some basic knowledge of HTML coding, editing and then uploading files to a hosting server. If you require constant updates, this is where a CMS (content management system) comes in. We can give you the ability to login, behind the scenes of your website and easily update the copy or content via a user friendly interface, you can even login via your smartphone and update on the go. A blog or a news feed is a good example of something that will probably require constant updates.


What is web hosting?

Web hosting enables you to publish your website on the web, it's a hosting server where all of your website files are stored and allows anybody with an internet available device to view those files through a specific domain address. We do not own our own hosting servers, we rather help you set up your hosting with an ultra reliable and very good value for money hosting provider. The benefit of this is that you are able to access all of your website files 24/7.


What is a domain name?

A domain name is the part of a website address after the “www”. So, in the website name “www.00design.co”, the domain name is “00design.co”. The domain name will also be part of your business email address, just like ' [email protected] '


How much does a website cost?

This is a common question and it is impossible to answer. Each website is bespoke and each project we work on is unique. There are so many factors that effect price. It depends on whether you require a content management system, a shopping cart and many other factors in between. The best way to find out is to get in touch with us so we can put a price together for you. The best way is to email us at [email protected].


When do I have to pay for the website?

Once you are happy with our quote and proposal and would like to proceed we will require a deposit of between 10% - 20%. The balance is then due once the website has been completed and the site is live. We will then send out an invoice with terms of 14 days. Sometimes if we are working on a large project we will write into the proposal that we will collect a part payment half way through the project build.


Are the websites you build going to get us noticed on search engines like Google?

We always set out to design and develop a website to be as 'search engine' friendly as possible. By this we mean that the HTML code will be clean, valid code that is well structured and as easy for the likes of Google to understand. We ensure we always input meaningful alt tags and well organised heading tags.

We always ensure that all of our websites that we build are 'mobile-friendly' which is another important search ranking factor. There are hundreds of web design agencies throughout the midlands and especially Staffordshire and Stoke. We have spent a long time working on getting to the top of page 1 with the search term 'Staffordshire web design' so we know what we are doing! We can also provide seperate quote for search engine optimisation, our packages are flexible and can be made to your exact requirements and budget.
