Frequently asked questions

With every unique website comes a variety of different questions and desires. As part of my value in honesty, here are some answers to some frequently asked questions.

To get started with your professionally designed website, click here, or in the link below to get in contact with me. Using the contact form linked, you can submit a request and I will shortly get back to you. Alternatively, you can text or call me at +44 (0) 7368 316248.

Upon the first conversation, we will discuss your aims and objectives, expectations, the message you are trying to communicate, as well an arranged price quote. Only later once you are happy with your design will we exchange money.

Whether you’re the business trying to attract customers, the artist trying to showcase their work, or a writer trying to communicate a message, every person has unique needs with their website. To put it simply, barriers are not part of my professional philosophy. Whatever the scenario, I have a range of features which are bound to match your needs. If you’re looking to sell products online, an e-commerce store or an advanced booking system could be optimised. If trying to attract people to a business location, an online map would have great utility. Other potential features may include a comments section, a portfolio, contact forms, scheduling software, images, videos and social media posts.

Features dont just end at the frontend of the website either. If you’re looking for business features like personal emails, Google Analytics and Google marketplace optimisation, these too can be added free of charge. 

If you’re serious about recognition, I also offer google marketing services, where I optimise Google AdWords, Google’s advertising arm that bring’s your website to the top of search engine results. Get started here.

According to the type of website you are looking for, website design prices can vary. A simple display website, capable of attracting a plethora of new visitors or paying clients can cost as little as £150. If you’re looking for something more advanced, such as a website with an online store or a blog, prices can vary between £200 to £500 depending on the plugins needed. Finally, if you’re wanting something more sophisticated, like an online booking system, prices can cost slightly more due to high maintenance costs.

The basic structure of a website can be running within 48 hours, making any urgent business easy to achieve. More complicated features, such as a blog, an online store, or a booking system can take slightly longer. As a result of my flexible hours, you can be sure you won’t be waiting too long.

A website is made of numerous components. First of all, to get a website hosted on the internet it needs to be hosted with a hosting provider, from which I also buy my website domains. SiteGround hosting works best as their dns servers are located in the UK, over Europe, as well as in America and Asia; this results in faster than usual website speeds in local regions. To pair with the website, I use WordPress, the largest open source management system in the world. This allows for easy website management for administrators. Depending on the features needed, I also add plugins such as Elementor for design, WooCommerce for e-commerce features and CrocoBlock for more sophisticated systems.

While I deal with the complex back-end of the website, you will be given access to an easy-to-run dashboard if you wish to see statistics, write posts, fulfil orders or view anything else.

Everyone has unique needs for their website, so there’s one way to know if design by Sebastian is right for you: try it. I offer a free 30 day money back guarantee so you can explore your website, and decide if you’re ready to continue. Your website will be designed before you pay, so if you’re still not sure about my services, you’ll know what your getting before you commit. Simple.

Every website in the world is hosted on internal servers by a hosting company, in my case a company called SiteGround. Alongside this, hosting companies usually charge around £15 to £20 per month to host a website on their international servers. Because of this, my website design services usually come with a small monthly price of around £25. This covers both the price for hosting, as well as my price for maintaining the website, updating plugins, and regularly checking everything is up to date and working. In addition, if ever a change is needed, I can do so any time as requested. 

 

Aside from viewing the website through a direct link, as more attention is given to individual pages, Google will gradually list your website higher and higher on the search pages. After enough visits, a website is expected to reach first place when searched for. 

Furthermore, when a business has a website, they are eligible to use Google’s My Business, a free tool that allows businesses to take charge of how their business appears on search and maps pages. This also allows customers to get in contact with the business and leave reviews.

If you’re looking to promote your website and gain potential customers on a serious level, I also offer Google marketing services, where I optimise Google Adwords, Google’s marketing tool that places websites to the top of search results, making a business instantly visible.  

When a website domain is bought from a hosting company, in my case designbysebastian.com, one also has the option to get personalised email addresses with the same domain, like such: sebastian@designbysebastian.com. Consequently, unprofessional emails such as JohnS98@gmail.com can be scrapped and replaced with a personalised email address, such as John@Johnswebsite.com. This not only gives you more control over your emails, but also creates a far more professional look around clients and potential business partners.

On mobile and laptop, these can be accessed through a short installation, or through the settings app by importing some simple login data. Once the emails are imported, you will have access to them for as long as you keep the website alive. Alternatively, personal emails can also be accessed through a simple link, leaving even the least tech-knowledgeable people satisfied.
