Frequently Asked Questions

1. How much does QuailTech charge to build a website?

Website pricing is a direct reflection of the amount of design and development necessary to accomplish your project’s goals. Since every website has its own unique set of requirements, we cannot offer a single, standardized pricing model. For more information about our pricing or to get a price quote for your project, please contact us.

2. How long does it take QuailTech to build a website?

Website delivery time depends on several factors including project complexity, amount of custom development, client revisions, and more. A simple brochure website can take as little as 3 weeks while a more complicated ecommerce site can take up to 8 weeks.

3. Do you offer any warranties or guarantees?

Yes, QuailTech offers 1 month of free, comprehensive support after go-live. This includes fixing any “bugs” and minor graphical modifications.

4. Can I edit the website myself?

Yes. Most of QuailTech’ solutions come with a Content Management System (CMS) where any site administrator can update content and images.

5. What are your maintenance fees after the site goes live?

Since most of our websites come with Content Management Systems, QuailTech does not charge any maintenance fees after your site goes live. Your only ongoing expense for your website will be for web hosting and any software licensing (if necessary), which we will discuss with you during the project’s development.

If you ever require QuailTech for any additional development of site functionality, we can either provide a price quote for the project or bill you at our hourly rate.

6. Will I own the site/code after it is designed and developed?

Yes, all of our projects are performed as “works made for hire” meaning you will be the legal owner of your entire website.

7. Can you host my website or is that something I would arrange myself?

While QuailTech does not offer hosting directly*, we work with many of the popular third-party hosting providers including GoDaddy, HostGator and others. If your project has unique hosting requirements, we will work with you to find the best possible web hosting solution.

*In our experience, be wary of any webmaster that offers to host your site themselves. If you ever choose to switch developers or move hosting, they may try to “hold your site hostage”—meaning you’d have to start from scratch with your new developer instead of updating your existing site.

8. Do you offer SEO or SEM?

Yes, QuailTech has years of experience in online marketing including Search Engine Optimization (SEO) and Search Engine Marketing (SEM). We will work with you to define your web marketing goals and come up with a comprehensive strategy to help you achieve them.

9. Is there a difference between web design and web development?

Yes, web design refers to the “look and feel” of a website, while web development is the actual behind-the-scenes coding that makes your website work. For example, you can design a contact form on a web page—but without developing the server code that processes the form information and generates an email to the site owner, the form does not have any function.

10. Do your websites meet W3C Standards?

Yes, depending on your site’s requirements we can code to any W3C standard to avoid common coding errors and warnings.
