About the process

FAQ

Q: How long does it take for Coastal Web Designer to build a website?
A: It can take anywhere from 2 to 8 weeks. We will work with you to discuss the details of your website and make sure it is built to your satisfaction.

Q: What types of websites does Coastal Web Designer build?
A: Coastal Web Designer specializes in building custom websites tailored to the needs of our clients. We can build any type of website, from a basic informational website to a complex e-commerce site.

Q: What kind of support does Coastal Web Designer provide?
A: We provide a full range of support services, from helping you select the right web hosting package to providing ongoing maintenance and troubleshooting. We will be with you every step of the way, ensuring that your website is always running smoothly.

There will be an option to select how much support you would like and that can be decided up to 1 week after the website is published.

 

Q: What happens after the 1 week that I can't add on support from CWD?

A: After 1 week of your website being published live, Coastal Web Design removes its rights from your site.  Therefore, it is important to decide before that 1st week is up, if you would like more support in managing the site.   Also, depending on what package you purchase from the host, they will also offer support. 

Q: Why are there client private access pages? 

A: The client private access pages are there throughout the design process.  This is ONE area I collaborate with my clients and show them options before starting on their site.  IF you choose to purchase a support package after your website is published and beyond the 1 week, you will have an active 'Client Private Access' page, where we can still collaborate and where you can receive support, as needed.  

Q: Can other clients see my private access page?

A: No.  Each client receives a completely unique password generated for their page, and no one else has access, abilities, or rights to that page.  It is completely your private access area, for you and anyone else you give the password to.
