Questions & Answers about websites that pay for themselves.

These are the questions clients usually ask at our initial meetings.  Click on the question to see the answer.

Q1. Why should we choose to use a professional web designer? The same reason you would choose a professional dentist, lawyer, car mechanic, financial planner, or any other expert in their field - because you want the job done correctly in an efficient and effective manner.  There is far more to a professional website than simply putting pages on the Internet.  CID Solutions will work with you to build a custom website just for you.  Not only that, we will teach you the rudiments of web design and the Internet as well.  From coding to advanced database development, we have the capability to get the job done.

Q2. How long does it take to complete a website? The answer to this question depends largely on the client!  The single, most important factor in delaying the production of a website is the provision of its content.  Once the content is ready and the contract signed, websites are usually ready to go online on average within six weeks.  More complex sites may take longer.

Q3. Can we take care of the maintenance of our site? Absolutely! However, many clients do not understand or appreciate the time consuming nature of regular maintenance.  CID Solutions has a team that provides timely and accurate maintenance for many of our clients at very reasonable prices.

Q4. Do you repair and rebuild existing websites? Of Course!  Many of our clients come to us with existing websites, which require some degree of improvement and/or development.  The cost of this work varies, but again we will generally quote a project price prior to commencement of the work.

Q5. What are your principles of website design? That is a great question!  Click here to see CID Solutions' principles for web design.

  • Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
  • Content Management Systems (CMS)
  • Ecommerce systems
  • Database development
  • Site Hosting
  • Domain Name registration
  • Social Media

Q8. Does web hosting mean we have access to the Internet?  No, unfortunately not.  Web hosting refers to leasing space for you website to reside, in order that it may be seen on the Internet.  Access to the web (whether it be dial-up, DSL, cable modem or fiber optic cable) is something separate and refers to the means by which your computer accesses pages on the Internet.  Internet Services Providers (ISP) take care of this.

Q9. Can we afford a professional website?  People judge the professionalism of your institution by what they see on your website.  The question really is, can you afford not to have a professional website? It is fair to say that a website may give an impression of excellence, from which may be derived a reputation for professionalism.  CID Solutions provides a project price for all new work, so you will know before we start what your new website will cost.  We also provide generous discounts to BNI members.

Q10. Do you ever have server down time?  Down time is very rare for CID Solutions.  Our cloud servers are located in a server farm at a major datacenter.  There is 24 hour hardware maintenance on site with redundant backup generators and the cloud servers themselves are backed up daily with redundant backup servers ready to kick in should hardware failure occur.  We have a team member who maintians the software on the servers with the latest versions and updates to keep security at its peek.
