Will I get confused when I log into the admin area of my CMS website?
Everyone is different but most customers adapt very quickly to the admin panel. In fact once you have logged in you just visit your website as you normally would and adjust content from the front of the website. It is quite simple and quick.

What are your prices to build a CMS website?
You can find our current prices at our website here
http://www.hostingwebdesign.co…..tes-carts/

Will there be any hidden or extra costs?
Later on you may want to add some extra features such as a shopping cart, forum or members area. These do incur additional costs but are not very expensive to setup and install.

Can I update the website myself?
Yes most certainly. Although some customers prefer us to do it for them.
Our Maintenance Plan is very reasonably priced.

Do you update the software regularly?
We suggest you update the software when updates are available. You can do this yourself but please note that this may effect any mods or addons you may have installed. It may be better to have us upgrade for you. We charge a small fee to upgrade for you.

How long does it take to build?
If you are organised with your copy and artwork/pics etc we can have a website built within a week.

What if my database crashes?
We suggest you backup your database at least once a month or more often. Although it is extremely rare to have issues we still recommend you backup.

How do I arrange to have a WordPress CMS website built?

First read our general requirements of what we need from you to get things started.
http://www.hostingwebdesign.co…..tes-carts/

Once that information is emailed to us we will then communicate more if required and will set up a test area where we will build a front page.

If you are happy with the design we will then ask for a deposit before we spend more time building other pages.
The whole process can be completed very quickly. If you are fairly organised with your copy we can have the website live within a week or two!

What is a CMS website?

CMS (Content Management System) is designed to simplify the publication of web content to websites, allowing content creators to submit content without requiring technical knowledge of HTML or the uploading of files.

In other words it allows you the website owner to upload images and content to your website very easily.
This is done by logging into an admin control panel.

There are many other benefits too.
With a CMS website it is quite inexpensive to add other features.
For example you may want a
Shopping cart
Forum
Special members area
Blog
Internal mailing list management
And much much more
In fact there is not much that you cannot do with CMS.

If you are looking for the all-in-one solution then CMS is for you.
No more tacked on sections to your website, shopping cart here, forum there, separate logins everywhere!
With CMS it’s all nicely integrated.
And you can upgrade and add features to your website as your business grows!
