    The Start of a Website Development

    Q: What do I need to order development of a brand-new website?

    You need to have an idea of what you want to get as a result. The clearer the view of the end product is the faster it will be implemented. Please fill this form.

    Q: I already have a website in HTML and I want to install it on a CMS. Can you do it?

    Of course, we can do it. The design of a website will be exact or a bit updated if you’d like that. We’ll repeat the structure of a current site and upload existing or new content.

    Q: I already have a website and want to integrate a blog in the same style. Will it work properly?

    Certainly. New blog will have the same style as the whole site and will be linked with other pages of a website.

    Q: I’m looking for development of a plugin with certain features. Can you help me in this case?

    We develop not only websites but also plugins as well and help clients to implement them.

    Q: What widgets do you install on a website?

    There are plenty of widgets available for websites. But they need to be installed properly to perform their best on a website. Also you don’t need them all at once as it slows down a website work and increases upload time. Approach we use allows to minimize the number of HTTP requests and enhance website performance. Two plugins that you certainly need are a plugin for SEO and a Google Analytics code to track the popularity of your website.

    Q: Which browsers do you support?

    We support Internet Explorer 7 and 8, Mozilla Firefox 3, Flock, Chrome, Opera 10+, Safari by default. Also we provide support of Internet Explorer 6 at request as this browser is not very popular now but requires additional work.

    Communication and Timeframe for a Website Development

    Q: I already have PSD files with design of a website. How long will it take to convert them into HTML?

    It depends only on PSD and its complexity. The first page usually takes from 2 hours to be completed. If all other pages of the website look like the first one then they will require less time.

    Q: How long does it take to develop and launch a website?

    It can be several days or weeks. A small website consisting of 5-6 pages will take a few days if you provide PSD files for all pages. An e-Commerce site or a complicated plugin may require several weeks of work. Show us the scope of a project and we’ll tell you exactly how long it will take.

    Q: How can we communicate?

    We can communicate via e-mail, Skype, ICQ and other IMs. As a rule the pointed tools cover the needs of communication. We are located in Eastern Europe and our working hours are 10.00 – 19.00 GMT +2. If you’d like to have conference-calls during development process we’ll setup the time suitable for you considering the time difference.

    Q: How can I track development progress?

    Online collaboration can be held through different project management systems. At the moment we use Basecamp and ActiveCollab that are great if you have many projects. If you intend to have just one outsourcing project than we’ll prepare daily reports on completed tasks and time spent on them.

    Q: How soon will I get an answer for my WP development request?

    A quote will be estimated in one business day for a small to medium project and in two business days for a large or complicated projects. We need this time to get the full view of a project and provide you with the most accurate estimation upon given specification.

    Q: How do you provide support of a completed website?

    After we launch a website we check its work and performance and fix any bugs that can occur. If you’d like to make some changes to the website that wasn’t pointed in the scope of a project we’ll be glad to help you and make additional work on the dedicated basis. Thus, you’ll be able to hire a developer for one or two hours to implement any new feature.

    Q: What are the prices for a website development?

    There are two ways to charge for development work:

      • Fixed price for a project with exact specifications
      • Dedicated development. In this case the cost is equal to the number of hours multiplied by hourly rate. When the specifications are not very certain or it’s hard to estimate the project at the beginning will tell you the approximate duration of the project and its price level.

    Custom website development can vary depending on project specifications.
