What platform do you use for building websites?
We use WORDPRESS for building a business website and eCommerce website. WORDPRESS is a most popular CMS (Content Management System) and powering almost 28% of websites on the internet.
Do we use ready-made templates?
No, we don’t use any ready-made templates. We build custom themes according to customer’s requirements. All of our websites are built on the latest WORDPRESS version.
What is the process from start to finish?
The whole process is divided into three stages i.e. Design, Development, Deployment. First, we design all pages of the website and send to the customer for review. Once the website design is approved, we start building the website on WORDPRESS CMS. The completed website is uploaded on our test server and shared with the customer. The customer reviews the website and sends us feedback. Once both parties are happy, we upload the website on the live domain.
What is the turnaround time?
Starter Package – Between 1-2 weeks.
Small Bz Package – Between 3-5 weeks.
eCommerce Package – Between 4-7 weeks.
The timeline also depends on when we get website content including images and text from the customer. Generally speaking, the website will only take a long time if we are still waiting for text and images from yourself.

What is the payment schedule?
