Frequently Asked Questions
Costs and Payments
How much does a website cost?
The cost of a website varies greatly depending on the size, scope, customization, etc. We will evaluate your needs on an individual basis and provide a solution tailored to your specific needs. Since every website is different we can’t provide a general answer to this question without accessing your specific requirements.
We are not the most expensive nor are we the cheapest but we will give you the most bang for you buck. Our starting subscription fee is $69/month and includes our blazing fast and secure Premium hosting.
Do I have to pay for my website up front?
NO. We understand that you are trying to grow your business and so we work with you to ensure your website payments do not strain your resources.
We offer a Pay-As-You-Go subscription plan. Our plans start as low as $69/month. And our Premium hosting is included in all website subscription fees! That is a $25/month value.

Services and Features
Do you do e-commerce stuff?
Yes. Our ecommerce solutions use the highly popular WooCommerce plugin and are suitable for big and small businesses. Since WordPress is the underlying content management system your entire website will be a breeze to manage and update.
Whether you simply wish to collect payments for online registration or are looking to set up a massive online store to sell products and process payments, we can help. Our stores are outfitted with all of the tools you need to operate your online store.
Every business is unique so we evaluate how your business operates and arm your store with tools tailored to your specific needs: wish lists, abandoned cart emails, etc.
Do you offer hosting?
Yes. Most businesses don’t realize how important hosting is to their online success. It affects search engine rankings, revenue, traffic and business reputation just to name a few.
We specialize in WordPress website hosting and know how to make WordPress websites really fly. Our hosting environment is one of the safest and fastest available for small businesses.
I already have a website and it needs an overhaul. Can you help?
Many of our clients had outdated websites before partnering with us. We will analyze your existing website and discuss best options for you to achieve your goals.
We will then prepare a custom quote for updating your website.
Can I make changes to my own website?
Absolutely! Gone are the days of emailing your web master to update your website. Today’s websites use powerful Content Management Systems (CMS) which make updating your website as easy as creating an email.
We use the extremely user-friendly WordPress CMS making it super easy for you to manage and update your website from any device. Of course we are always here to help with the more difficult tasks.
Some clients prefer to have Double Fox handle all of the website management and updates. We offer very affordable “care” packages to meet your needs, whether they be occasional edits or regular updates.
What can you do to make sure my site can be found?
We make Search Engine Optimization (SEO) a priority during the website build. The best looking, most functional website is only useful if it can be seen.
We use a wide variety of tools and procedures to greatly enhance your site’s ranking on major search engines. From image selection and optimization to intelligent design and navigation, your website will be built with SEO in mind.
SEO entails much more than just the website design and content. Website performance is often overlooked and a slow loading website can work against all you have done to build your SEO. Page load speed, SSL certification, etc. play a vital role and our private cloud hosting ensures your website performance is working to build your search engine rankings not erode them.
When we have completed your website build you will have a site primed for SEO success!

The Website Development Process
How long will it take for my website to be completed?
The time scale of a website development project is often dictated by the client. If you have a deadline in mind we will endeavor to meet it for you. The most common delay in the creation and completion of a new website is waiting for content (text and images) to be sent by the client.
How does the website creation process work?
While every project is different here is a sample of our strategic planning process:
The most important part of building a website occurs before colors are picked and design is discussed. We look at your identity, existing content, your needs, your customers, competitors and marketplace. Industry research helps us determine what has been done in your industry, what is successful and what hasn’t been done yet. This knowledge opens up opportunities to dominate your industry.
Intuitive website navigation is important for both visitors and search engines. We carefully plan the structure of your website so that it becomes an effective marketing tool and allows visitors to find information quickly and easily. Effective website structure can help optimize customer conversions, whether they be in terms of products sold, newsletter subscriptions or downloads.
With objectives and strategy identified we begin to design the experience we want visitors to have and the behaviors we want them to take. Your website design needs to accurately and consistently reflect your brand, communicate your message and support your overall business goals. The design process involves a lot of back and forth communication between you and your Fox specialist so we can create a compelling visual design that accomplishes your goals.
Design and development are married as we breathe life into your website. To be certain your site performs properly we take extra time to test for performance, check links, review design and responsiveness, etc.
Test and Launch
You are involved during the entire process and your input guides the design and structure. Prior to launch we complete final tweaks and tests. This is also a great time to begin training so you can play on a pre-live website without fear of damaging a live site. And then when all of our ducks are in a row we throw the switch and your website is open for business!
Attention to details, true professionalism, caring and understanding, timeliness, inspirational and devoted. These phrases are just some of the verbiage that describes the team at Double Fox Websites.Howard Baltus
