Frequently Asked Questions

Will I have a say in the design process?
Absolutely. My goal is to please you. However, I can’t do that without your input. If there are other sites with a design style that you would like to emulate, I can do that.

Do I have to host with you?
No! Once the design is completed you may upload your website to the server of your choice. However, please remember that hosting on my server is free of charge and I only service websites hosted on

Once you complete the website design, who owns the copyright and elements?
Upon completion and payment for the website design everything is owned by you.

Can you maintain my website for me after the design work is finished?
Of course! Website maintenance is included with hosting.

How is the cost of a new website determined?
Websites are quoted as a fixed bid project. The cost is based upon complexity and size of your website. Every project is unique and I try to make sure my pricing is based on your specific needs.

How long will it take to design and build my new website?
This is hard to say, as it varies greatly by client. A small five page website can take as little as four weeks and a larger complex site can take up to three months. In most cases, I am waiting on the client and the client is not waiting on me.

How long before search engines rank my site?
The dominant search engines, Google, Bing! and Yahoo will normally pick up a site in a few months. I have ways to help move the process along much faster. For most businesses located in Mason County, I can guarantee first page ranking within one month.

Will I know how many people come to my Web site?
Yes, I use Google Analytics to produce a detailed report of activity containing the number of visitors, the pages that were viewed, which order the pages were most commonly viewed in, which search engines drove traffic to your site, and which keyword phrases were used to drive that traffic. Hosting with WinPages includes monthly reports sent to your email address as a PDF file upon request.
