Frequently Asked Questions

Why do I need a website?
Whether you are an international business, non-profit, small business, or a solo entrepreneur, the decision to implement your web presence should not be taken lightly. Consider that your website can be accessed by anyone at anytime, and that most new product & services inquiries begin with an internet search.

We are in the Digital Age - if your business is not brought up to date chances are you will be left behind. Can you risk taking a chance tarnishing your brand to your target and local markets? Webwerx Web Design doesn't think so. A website is now as important - if not more important than - to your business as advertising, business cards, etc.
Why do I need to purchase a domain name and website hosting to go along with my new website?
A domain name and website hosting are crucial to launching your new site. Without getting too technical, a domain name is an address of sorts that points to the server that hosts your website (the web host). In other words, your home (website) sits on a lot (website host) and has an address (domain) to enable others to locate it.
$50/hour Update Fee?
Although it may sound frightening, $50/hour for website updates is considerably lower than the competition's rate. Consider that because of our expertise and depending on the update request, most can be completed in well under an hour, greatly reducing the fee. Furthermore, because we built your site, we know it in-and-out and can usually have your updates online within 24 hours.
Can I update my own site?
Yes! You can update the content of your website — and in some cases completely manage pages, navigation & more — via a user-friendly interface you can access from virtually anywhere!
I do not see my website updates online yet - why?
Oftem times your browser is set to store cached versions of websites to improve page-load time. This also means that you may have to manually reload the page you are trying to view. A simple click of the Refresh button on your browser (or F5 key on your keyboard) should do the trick of showing you the latest version of the page you are trying to view.
What's the big deal with XHTML/CSS and table-less design?
In simple terms, tableless web design is a method whereby page layout and stylistic control is achieved without the use of HTML tables. Instead, text and other elements on a page are arranged using W3C's (World Wide Web Consortium) Cascading Style Sheets (CSS). It was designed in such a way as to improve web accessibility as well as to make use of HTML for semantic purposes rather than presentational purposes.

Why do we follow this standard?
  • The current W3C standards dictate the use of tableless design.
  • Practically all browsers in use today support CSS for controlling layouts. Thus, your site will be compatible with most any modern, up-to-date browser.
  • It is easier to make site-wide changes to the layout with the use of CSS (that is, if the coding is properly done, of course).
  • Web site accessibility for people with special needs is done more easily with the proper implementation of content into XHTML documents. In this case, CSS is used only for the layout and style.
  • Unnecessary code is eliminated with the use of XHTML and CSS, making for a sleeker and more manageable code.
  • Tableless formats make it easier for search engines to index a web site, rendering them more search engine friendly.
Navigation menu - vertical vs. horizontal?
When choosing a navigation menu type, it is always wise to consider the number of navigation links. A vertical nav menu allows for long-term expandibility as it can grow vertically as new items are added. With a horizontal nav menu, you are limited to the width of the page, leaving you with few options (and space!) when it comes to adding links/pages down the road.
Why should I consider Search Engine Optimization for my new website?
It is a well-know fact that most new inquiries regarding products, services, and information begin with an internet search. Incorporating Search Engine Optimization into your new website will provide you with many advantages, including increased web traffic, 24/7 advertising, and expanding your customer base, among many others.

There are people, hundreds if not thousands of them, who are looking for the services, products, and information you provide. Why not give them every opportunity to find you?
