Should remain unanswered questions still open then write us, please.
What platform will my website be in?
All our Rent a Website sites are built in WordPress.
What is WordPress?
WordPress is the most popular solution today for designing and building websites because it offers so many benefits. These include ease of use, comprehensive SEO features (search engines love WordPress), everything can be customised and personalised (so your website extends and complements your offline brand), a built in blog facility (giving you a dynamic and interactive site), and fabulous flexibility (so your site can grow as your business grows). Many big brands such as VW, Ben & Jerry’s, Starbucks, UPS, CNN, and Samsung use WordPress sites.
Of course, we can not provide full-time power available for a small monthly allowance. Their advantage, however, is that you have to deal with anyone and also benefit from our “mixed calculation”!
You will receive our service at reasonable monthly rates.
With significantly increased service demand, we have every 15 minutes only as much power as you need. Discounted in the offer is 1 hour and 30 minutes Support maintenance (eg software updates) per month. This value is a “mixed calculation”, this means we relatively accommodating deal with it and understand that it is something more and something less. With considerable additional expenditure it must be calculated (of course we are talking about the pre-arranged with you!).
Can I update my website with new content?
Yes. Easily, and without the need for technical know-how. Your username and login gives you access to the CMS interface through which you can make changes as often as you like. You can edit existing website text, change your images, publish blog posts, delete post or pages, moderate customer comments, manage categories, manage your tags (SEO info which strengthens your site -we’ll explain all about it if you’re not sure), manage links and upload files and images.
What if I don’t know how to do something?
We’ll help you. That’s what we’re here for.
Can I add more website pages if I need to?
Additional pages can be added (usually at just £5 /month each). Just let us know what you need.
Do you add Google Analytics?
Yes – for our Professional and Ecommerce Rent a Website packages. Google Analytics is a very important and informative tool. You’ll receive a monthly report enabling you to see your visitor stats and user information. You can discover and keep track of how people find your site and how they explore it once they arrive. Google Analytics is a great tool for your business and the future growth of your website.
What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files typically containing a site name and a unique ID. When you visit a site (which has cookies) for the first time, a cookie is downloaded onto your PC. The next time you visit, your PC checks your cookies, sends information back to the site, and they know you’ve been there before. In some cases this allows them to tailor the information on their site so that it is more relevant to either new or frequent visitors.
