Frequently Asked Questions

We put together some of the question we get asked the most if your still not sure drop us a line

How long my website take to build?

The length of time it takes to build a website is dependent on the individual project. However, a basic website can take between 2 - 4 weeks to be up and running, while a comprehensive website may take between 12 – 16+ weeks. In each case, your Project Manager will keep you informed from the outset and will always work towards launching the website within the agreed deadline.

Can I update my website?

As Abingdon Technologies offers a complementary CMS training session and provides each client with a CMS manual, it is expected that you will reach the expected level of competency to update your website quickly and easily. However, we are always available via the phone at our UK call centres and can provide more extensive training packages for a small fee, so you can rely on our help and support.

Do I need to purchase a domain name?

No. However, you will need to select the domain name which is right for your business and then, Abingdon Technologies will do the rest for you. Our design and development solutions include the registration of a .co.uk domain name for 1 year, which is then configured to work with your website.

What are your payment terms?

Abingdon Technologies operates default payment terms, which are 50% deposit, 40% main build and 10% on completion.

Where is my website hosted?

We host your website on our very own services so if anything goes wrong with your website such as hacking or downtime we are at hand to deal with it and no other parties need to get involved.

What is a CMS?

A Content Management System (CMS) is an intuitive, web-based publishing tool, which allows non-technical staff to go into your website and manage the site, making any changes necessary from an internet-enabled computer. Our CMS is a WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) Editor, which makes it really easy to update information on the site. To control the look of the content, the user is able to edit the website content, together with managing the site’s navigational layout and structure.

Can you update my website?

Of course, we can! We will provide you with a range of Maintenance Plans to suit both your business and budget requirements, so that you can be sure your website will reflect a new and fresh look, with the most up-to-date content on your site.

Can you promote my site?

As a recognised barometer for all websites, Abingdon Technologies positions our design principles with the accepted benchmarks for Search Engine Optimisation (SEO). This means that all our solutions include full keyword, metatag administration and page title tools to enhance the probability of a conducive search engine ranking for our clients' websites. If you wish to further promote your website, Abingdon Technologies can discuss with you an online marketing and/or an emarketing strategy to promote your business to a wider range audience, if necessary - whatever best suits your business and budget requirements.

Are there any other costs?

The only other costs for your website would be any additional training costs, updates or apps all of which would be discussed and agreed on an individual basis. Also there is a yearly hosting fee which starts from £29.99.
