Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What costs are involved in setting up a website?

A: There are three major costs to be aware of:

    • Domain Name Registration - These are the charges you pay in order to become the owner of a domain name. The major registrar that most people use is www.register.com. The current cost at most major companies for domain registration is about $35/yr. Laird Computer Services offers domain name registration for approximately $10/yr. Prices vary for specialized domain name extensions. See the domain name page for more information.

    • Website Hosting - These are the costs you will need to pay in order to give your website a server to be hosted from (a place where the information is stored). Laird Computer Services offers a variety of packages to suit your needs. See our hosting page for more.

    • Web Design Costs - These costs will vary depending on the size and nature of your website. There are usually initial setup fees and then additional charges for any future updates to your site. Our web design area can provide you with more details.

Q: What should I do to prepare for having a site developed?

A: Primarily you will have to think about the right things to say about your organization to help your site serve its purpose as you are ultimately the one that needs to write the core content. You will need to sit down and consider how to break down all of the information you would like to present and write it effectively. You don't necessarily have to do it all, as we can help you with your content, but only you truly understand the real details specific to your business. If you have ideas of what you would like it to look like, feel free to sketch a design for us and we can work to make it live. For further information, check out our web design area.

Q: Will I get the chance to review my site and have changes made before it is complete?

A: Absolutely, we include you through the entire process of design.

Q: Will you help us promote the website?

A: Yes, we will submit your website initially to the major no-charge search engines as well as any industry specific websites which you specify and which we find that might list your business.

Q: Can you maintain our website for us?

A: Yes, we can either maintain your website on an hourly rate for rare or infrequent changes or can offer you a customized maintenance plan based on how often you'll need changes/additions to the site. Details are available on our updates/maintenance section.

Q: Do you offer email with your web hosting?

A: Yes, our hosting plan allows the creation of unlimited email addresses.

Q: I need a members only section/restricted section of the website, can you do that?

A: Yes, assuming your hosting solution supports it (or if you're hosting with us).

Q: We don't have a company logo, can you design one?

A: Yes. See our graphic design page for more information.

Q: I need to point more than one domain to the same site, does your hosting service support that?

A: Yes. All the features of our hosting packages are available in the hosting section.
