How long does it take for a design to be completed?
The timescale of a project is generally dictated by the client. If you have a deadline in mind we will endeavour to meet it for you. The most common delay in the creation of a site is waiting for content (text/images) to be sent to us by the client.
I would like you to design my site, what do I need to do now/what is the process?
If you would like to use our services all you need to do is inform us of the domain name you would like to use and send us a brief idea of your requirements. You can check domain name availability here. We will then purchase the domain in your name, purchase the right hosting package for your project and then based on your guidance,design an initial web page for you.
This is then refined/changed in consultation with the client until a satisfactory design has been reached. We will then need you to forward content and images for your site and start to design the website for you.
Do I need to buy a domain name and hosting?
No, we do everything for you.
How much will it cost?
The cost of a website varies, depending upon the type of site you require. A basic site will cost approx $299.00, a simple ECommerce site $699 onwards, a complex ECommerce site/Database Driven site $999.00 onwards. Obviously each site has to be treated on it's individual requirements, but these figures should give you an idea of a ballpark figure. We request a 50% deposit for all projects. The balance of payment is then due on completion of the project.
Payment can be made by cheque, Bank transfer or by using Online Payment Gateway.
The only ongoing cost will be your annual Domain & hosting fee.

What is FTP?
FTP (File Transfer Protocol) is a method of transferring files (web pages for example) from your local PC to your web server. There are a variety of free ftp software programs available on the Internet and they enable you to update your website pages at any given time. When a hosting package is purchased 'ftp details', consisting of the host name, User ID and password are sent to us. Upon completion of the website and receipt of payment for any work carried out, we then send these details to the client.
What is a URL?
It stands for "universal resource locator". This is the address typed in to view your web page on the Internet. For example, you would type in http://www.ngxprodesigns.com to access our home page.
What is a domain name?
