General Guide and FAQS

Faqs – All your questions answered. Through consultation, Ascribe Bureau will help develop a project plan for your website. Planning is an essential part of creating any website and is often just as important as the design and development itself.

Think of the purpose of the website, the structure, design, and the content that you may require. Think about a name for the website (domain) and where to host it, how much it is going to cost you and once the website has been developed who will manage it for you. A good website project plan can help you with every step of the website creation process. Do not forget this is your investment.

We can advise you on your best options.

  • No, what we quote is what you pay. Everything is all documented and once you are happy and signed off, we will start the development. If however, you have thought of something else that you need after you have signed off we will put the development on hold and consult with you again. If there are any additional charges due to your needs at this stage we will advise you and again once you are happy the project can again be signed off and the development restarted. We will not hide any costs from you.

  • This depends on a few factors. Is it a 1-page or 5-page website, is it a business, blog or e-commerce website. We can advise roughly how long the site will take to develop during the free consultation period and before you have signed off on the project.
