Timelines

Website design timelines are an interesting thing to nail down. In our experience, build times for websites with basic functionality can take 30-60 days. Timeline adjustments can be made if we're unable to gather the necessary information for a website's design and/or development. It really depends on a few factors like the ones below:

Functionality
Functionality is basically the elements you want your website to have. This can affect timelines because it might need to be developed from scratch in some instances.

Page Density
How many pages a website contains is sometimes a good indication of how long the total project will take from start to finish. We like to provide this information when the project starts during the contract phase.

Content & Information
Content is the largest piece of every website. Please provide all text content to us as a Microsoft Word, TextEdit, Notepad, or Apple Pages file. This makes adding it to the website quicker and easier. If it isn't provided in such a format, it could affect anticipated launch dates.

Content & Sitemaps

Website Content
Content is all of the images, text, and data needed for a website to be completed. Common examples of content are social media links, a Sitemap (all website pages listed hierarchically), email addresses for forms, form data, company bios, etc.

Image Resolution & Size
Imagery is a part of every website. We always ask that all images are provided at the highest resolution and image size possible to provide the highest quality final products.

The Sitemap
A Sitemap is a full list of a website's pages. On Sitemaps, pages are listed in a hierarchical format. They itemize the website's navigation that's usually at the top of a website for ease-of-use. The Sitemap does a couple of very important things. It tells our website designers which pages are needed on a website design project. For the client, it visually lays out all the pages for which content is needed.

A Sitemap is usually prepared like the example below with the bold items being the main navigational links and the hyphenated page names being beneath that page in a dropdown menu.

Home
Page Name
Services
- Service Name
- Service Name
- Service Name
About

- Team Page
- Another Page
- And Another Page

After we have this information, our designers know they need content for the pages above and the client knows to provide content for all of those pages. It makes the design and development process much easier, faster, and a better website is produced.

Website Cost

As with everything else at Foundry 72, we like to make things easier. Paying for a professional website is made easier because we use FreshBooks. We use FreshBooks for all of our invoicing.

Hosting

Website Hosting
If you have a website design agreement with us, hosting your website on our servers is included for the life of the agreement unless other arrangements are made. You can opt to host your website on your own servers, as well.

Domain Hosting
We can also manage and renew your website's main domain name for the life of the agreement. If you want us to host and maintain your domain on your behalf, great! If we do, you still own your domain and it is never the property of Foundry 72. All we do is host it on your behalf as a perk of the agreement.

However, if you wish to maintain the control over your domain, that's perfectly understandable, as well. All we'll need to do is make a couple of simple changes to it, and we may ask for login details for that domain name's registrar.
