FAQ

Q. Why do I need a website?
A.

Whether you are a for-profit business, a non-profit organization, or an individual trying to get an important message out, it is nearly impossible to reach your goal, or compete effectively in your market, without an "online presence."

Webmaster Studio designs websites for clients who want to boost their revenues, increase their visibility and expand their market beyond anything they could accomplish with only a traditional "bricks and mortar" operation.

Q. I want a website. Where do I start?
A.

Designing a website begins with deciding what you want your website to accomplish for you. Webmaster Studio will help you define your requirements and show you how the design of your website will help you achieve them. Our streamlined approach, based on years of design and development experience, will ensure that your website start-up will be quick, efficient, and painless.

Q. Is it possible to update my own website?
A.

Yes. The Webmaster Studio content management system allows you to easily update any of the content on your website from a web browser anywhere. Our Company can also update your website for you at a very reasonable rate -- usually less than it would cost you in time and resources to do it yourself. Regardless of the approach you choose to manage your website's content, Webmaster Studio will ensure it is an easy process by helping you understand all of the steps along the way.

Q. My existing website has not performed to my expectations. What's wrong?
A.

There are many factors that could cause a website to perform poorly. Search engine compatibility, color scheme, ease of use and navigation, and many other factors affect how well your website functions. We will evaluate your website for possible areas of improvement and offer suggestions on how we can help to rectify the problems. Contact us and we will be happy to assist you.

Q. How much does a website cost?
A.

Websites vary in cost, and the cost must be considered in light of the return you will get on your investment. Our goal at Webmaster Studio is to help you determine exactly what it will cost to get the benefits you need from your website, without spending more than necessary.

A.

Absolutely not! Webmaster Studio is always ready to answer your questions and help you feel as comfortable and confident as possible, before you make any decisions. Contact us, and we will be happy to discuss your unique needs free of charge.

Q. Do I need to buy a domain name for my website?
A.

Every professional website should have a unique domain name (such as "WebDesignNewYork.ws") that visitors can type into any browser, in order to view your site.

If you do not already have a domain name registered and want to buy one as part of your website development, Webmaster Studio can help. We will assist you in coming up with the most effective domain name for your needs, register it for you, and provide you with hosting on a month-by-month basis.

Q. Why should I consider finding someone to host my website?
A.

Hosting services ensure the smooth operation of your website. Working with Our Company for all of your technical and billing matters will result in less wasted time and confusion for you. It's all part of our goal to give you the most affordable and comprehensive solution possible.

Q. What if I already have a domain name and/or hosting, and want to switch?
A.

There are many different scenarios that lead to a decision to change a domain name or a hosting service, and many different methods of switching from one service to another. Regardless of your situation, Webmaster Studio is ready to handle the switch. We are experienced in filing the proper paperwork and cancellation notices, as well as, implementing a smooth conversion process, so that your website's functionality is not interrupted. Contact us -- we can provide you with the necessary steps you should take to change your domain name or switch your hosting services to our company hosting.

Q. How do I decide how much information to put on my website? How much is too much?
A.

There's no such thing as too much information on a website! Every visitor to your website is unique and is looking for different types of information. The more you have available, the better. However, this information should be properly laid out, so that it is easy to find and leads your visitor through the various pages of your website that you want visited. We can help you with these design considerations. They are essential to make sure that every visitor to your site finds the information he or she is looking for.

Q. Do I need a shopping cart on my website?
A.

If your website is supporting an inventory-driven retail business, you should have a shopping cart. The extra development and hosting cost will prove to be minimal, compared to the amount of additional sales you can achieve. For many visitors to retail websites, the ability to instantly buy any merchandise they desire is a must. If you do not have a shopping cart available, the average visitor will move on to a competitor's website before contacting you.

Our Company provides fully customized and feature-filled e-commerce solutions. Contact us to find out what we can do for your online sales.

Q. How can I boost my website's ranking in the search engines?
A.

Websites are indexed differently, and therefore, ranked differently on every search engine. However, by following some basic rules and concepts, your website can see drastic rank improvement:

  • Make use of META keyword tags.
  • Put a few very important keywords in the title of every page.
  • Use as many headings with keywords inside of them as possible.
  • Content is king. Your website's code should be as simple as possible (tip: make use of style sheets), so that most of the text found within the code is actual content/keywords.
  • The popularity of your website is especially important to search engines, such as Google, which take note of the number of websites linking to you. Take steps to include appropriate links on your website, and have your link appear on other websites.

Even though many of these concepts are not difficult to understand, they are not necessarily easy to implement. It takes plenty of time in both labor and waiting for the results to kick in.

Our Company can provide SEO (Search Engine Optimization) services for an additional fee. These services are available to existing web design clients, or anyone looking to optimize their website to its fullest potential. Contact us, and we will be glad to discuss your needs.
