Frequently Asked Questions

force first item closed
What is a content management system (CMS)?

A content management system (CMS) is software that helps website owners create, manage, and modify content (text and images) on a website without the need for programming knowledge.

Once your new website is live, you will be given login details and instructions on how to manage content on your new WordPress website.

If accessing the backend of a website is something you’d rather not to – don’t worry! Webhance Digital remains ready to support you in these tasks if you need us.

Why WordPress?

While WordPress started life in 2003 as a blogging platform, it has evolved into a powerful website builder and a robust content management system (CMS). Research suggests WordPress now powers more than 43% of websites on the internet. It is a tried and tested platform that delivers results.

WordPress is user friendly, search engine friendly, fast and scalable. For us it ticks all the boxes in ensuring a professional outcome for our clients.

Are WordPress websites scalable?

Yes! This is one of the reasons I love working with WordPress and have done so for over 10 years. WordPress’ scalability can be attributed to its large ecosystem of plugins and extensions. Plugins are deployed to add new features to your site and extend functionality. In a nutshell, your WordPress website will have the ability to grow and scale with your business.

Is WordPress secure?

WordPress is a platform that undergoes rigorous security audits on a regular basis, making it one of the most secure platforms out there. Having said that, WordPress is the most popular CMS platform in the world which unfortunately makes it a common target of hacking attempts, DDOS attacks, malware, and trojans.

If your WordPress website is configured with reputable plugins (including security) and its software is kept up to date, then your WordPress installation will remain secure.

All Webhance Digital WordPress websites are configured with premium security plugins installed. Our Webhance Managed Hosting package provides annual hosting and regular monitoring/upgrading of your sites software to manage its security and ensure optimal performance.

Can I update my website myself?

Yes, once your WordPress site has been developed and handed over you will be able to login and manage existing content yourself. On ‘Go Live’ we will provide login details and an Administration Manual featuring video tutorials that will provide step-by-step instructions on how to manage your new WordPress website.

Are we a good fit?

Great question. This one is so important to get right. If we’re a good fit, our project outcome is guaranteed to be amazing. I encourage you to have a good look through my portfolio to get a good idea of my aesthetic and understand the style of sites that I create. You might also like to connect with me on socials where I share more about the day-to-day tasks and process of web design. I also highly recommend booking a discovery call where we can find out more about each other and discuss the project you’d like completed. There is no obligation here – it’s a complimentary half hour chat where we’ll uncover if I’m the best designer for you to work with.

Can you recreate another site that I like?

Short answer is yes, I can – but I won’t. The reason for this is we want your site to be authentically you. We want you to stand out for your target audience, not look like someone else. And it’s just not right to copy someone elses work. I’ll use sites that you like as inspiration in the wireframing process, but we never replicate design.

Are there any ongoing costs?

Yes, with all websites there are ongoing costs. Standard costs are:

Domain registration renewal
Website hosting
Email hosting

Other costs may include:

Plugin licenses
Other software licenses

The above costs are entirely dependent on the functionality required for your website.

Do you offer payment plans?

Webhance Digital fees are invoiced at the completion of each design phase. These phases are generally:

Acceptance of Proposal – 25%

Agreement on Design (wireframes accepted) – 25%

Website Development complete, including testing – 40%

Go Live (site handover) – 10%

NB: Websites are not handed over until final payments have been received.

What do I need to provide?

I’ll need your marketing collateral (logo, style guide, fonts, colour palette) to utilise in the wireframing process. As soon as you sign my proposal I’ll be requesting delivery of these elements.

Your content (images, text, copy, product information) will be required before Phase 2 (development) can commence. It’s critical that your content is ready to go once you approve wireframes to avoid delays in delivery.

Webhance Digital can assist with copywriting and image collation if required.

Specific details and timeframes for delivery will be outlined in your proposal documents.

I'm keen to get started. How do we commence the process?

Great! Please connect with me on a discovery call. I will spend this time finding out everything I need to know about your project so I can create a formal proposal for you. On acceptance of my proposal I will confirm your projects start date and issue my first invoice (10% – acceptance of proposal) which secures your studio time.
