Conditions Website design Payment

General information for all websites.

Websites will be designed to your requirements. You will be able to view progress right through the design and build stage and I will change anything that you do not like. A security login will ensure that the website remains hidden to all others until you have approved it. Once it has been approved and paid for it will be made live for all to see.

Hosting.

All websites are hosted on servers protected against interruption of service. These are located in a secure 24 hour UK data centre. A backup copy of your website is also held at a separate location.

Domain name.

All websites need a domain name and part of the service can be to register a domain name for you. If so it will be registered in your name and will then become your property. An annual renewal fee will then be payable and this will be added to your annual invoice. Or you can register a domain name yourself elsewhere and use that.

UK domain names - The most popular names end with:
.co.uk - for general use
.uk - for general use
.org.uk - for use by charities, non profit making organisations or other groups

International domain names - The most popular names end with:
.com - for general use
.net - for general use
.org - for use by charities, non profit making organisations or other groups

A large range of specialist domain names are also available such as .shop, .club, and .company. Some of these are much more expensive to register. Contact me for more information or to see if the name that you want is available.

Emails.

If you require an email address it will be based on your chosen domain name such as yourname@chosendomain.co.uk or mail@chosendomain.co.uk etc. This is a webmail account (on-line account, maximum capacity 512MB) which can also be accessed via the email application (app) on your computer, tablet or smartphone. The webmail service can include basic anti-spam filtering and an anti-virus option.
You may prefer to use your existing email address or obtain another email address from your existing email provider, for example chosendomain@gmail.com. This option is best if you want to take advantage of your providers anti-spam system or other features. Links or buttons can then be provided on your web page(s) to allow visitors or customers to email you direct from your website.

Online Forms.

Instead of displaying your email address on your website you could use an Online Form. Which can be useful because it can be designed to request the exact information that you may want from the sender. The sender will simply fill in the required boxes and press the send button. The contents of the form is then sent to your email address. Online forms can help to reduce SPAM because the sender of the form cannot see the email address that the form is being sent to, so spammers cannot add it to their automatic spamming lists.
This option may not be available if you want your messages to be forwarded to an email provider that refuses to handle forwarded mail, for example BTInternet and BTOpenworld.

Internet searches

Search Engine Optimisation methods will be used to help your site to be found by customers searching for you or your services. Once your site is live I will submit requests to the main UK Internet search providers, Google, Yahoo, AOL etc., asking them to include your site in their search listings.
