Web Design & Development FAQ

(Frequently Asked Questions)

Do I need to buy a domain name and hosting?

No, we can buy them for you. However, if you already have a domain name and/or hosting account we can take them over.

I'd like you to design my website with Slick Boston, what is the process?

If you would like to use our services all you need to do is inform us of the domain name you would like to use and send us a brief idea of your requirements. Please use our Free Quote request form. We will then purchase the domain and hosting package if you don’t have them, and then based on your guidance, design an initial web page for you. This is then refined/changed in consultation with the client until a satisfactory design has been reached. We will then need you to forward content and images for your site and start to design the website for you.

Will we need to have a meeting?

In the majority of cases a meeting isn’t necessary and 99% of our sites are generally completed with contact via email and telephone only. However if you like to meet us in person, yes we can set up an appointment for that.

How long does it take for a design to be completed?

The timescale of a project is generally 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 of a site is waiting for content (text/images) to be sent to us by the client.

How much will it cost?

The cost of a website varies, depending upon several factors: type of site you require, number of pages, content, images, and graphics. Each project is treated individually, to get an accurate calculation please fill out the Free Quote form.

Do I need to send a deposit for the work?

Yes, we generally ask for a $200 deposit from clients. The balance of payment is then due on completion of the project. You can pay for the deposit online with a debit/credit card or mail us a bank check.
