Q. Why is hosting and having a domain necessary?

Hosting serves as the virtual home for your website, providing the necessary space for it to exist online. Without hosting, your website cannot be accessible on the internet. Meanwhile, a domain acts as the address that directs visitors to your website.

As part of our MintCare Web Design Maintenance package we offer one hour of monthly website updates made by our web design team along with unlimited hosting and domain registration for the life of your website. This includes text and image updates to keep your website content relevant and engaging. Whether you need to announce new products, update pricing information, add testimonials, or showcase recent projects, our team is here to assist you.

LET'S DESIGN MY WEBSITE

Explore our comprehensive list of frequently asked questions regarding our web design services, to find solutions to your web design queries. We address the most commonly asked questions to provide you with insightful answers and help you make informed decisions.

Design & Usability

WHAT TYPE OF PAGES CAN I HAVE ON MY WEBSITE?

You can view the page types here which we will make recommendations based on your business.

HOW MANY PAGES WILL YOU DESIGN FOR MY WEBSITE?

We have four web design packages you can pick from that contain the needed pages for your business.

IF YOU DESIGN MY LOGO, HOW MANY OPTIONS CAN I CHOOSE FROM?

We will provide you with three logo concepts to select from when you choose a graphic logo design. If you choose a custom drawn logo (hand drawn by our artists), you will receive one concept, but we will make any required edits until the logo is approved by you. We can edit colors, style as you provide feedback.

WILL MY WEBSITE BE A WORDPRESS WEBSITE?

While WordPress is a solution for many website owners. Mint Desk Media does not build websites via the WordPress platform. We have found that using a cloud platform for designing and maintaining offers easier access to make changes and requires no plug-ins which are prone to security threats online. However, if you require your website to be made available on the WordPress platform after the design, we can deliver on the WordPress platform as a custom solution (additional cost $275). Please note, we do not offer any WordPress support maintenance plans.

WHAT TYPE OF DESIGN LAYOUTS WILL I RECEIVE?

We will create two design layouts for your selection. These layouts include the fonts, colors, style, and content of the main page. We provide this to you so you can provide any feedback, then we move to the design process to structure the full website. Learn more about the web design process here.

WILL YOU REALLY GENERATE MY CONTENT?

Yes! We love content and that is why we may ask you a LOT of questions about your business or passion. The more we know, the better we can gather content that relates to your business and industry which is used to grab your visitor's attention.

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO HAVE MY WEBSITE COMPLETED?

This all depends on how quickly we work together. We can complete a full website in a week if we are provided back any information required. Upon providing the web design proposal, you will receive a timeline for the full project.

HOW CAN I EDIT MY WEBSITE?

If you choose to edit your own website, you will be provided access to your Mint Desk Media Builder portal where you can edit your text/images.

CAN I PAY YOU TO MAKE DESIGN CHANGES ON THE WEBSITE IF I AM TOO BUSY?

Yes, we have a website maintenance plan. View more information here.

WHO OWNS THE COMPLETED WEBSITE?

Ownership of a website involves different variables. The first is the domain. The domain is registered under your name if you do not already have a domain registration in place, otherwise the domain would be owned by whomever registered. The second variable is the design, which you will own 100% of the design and images as long as the full website project is completed/purchased.

CAN I TRANSFER MY WEBSITE TO ANOTHER WEB DESIGNER?

Sure, we can provide your full website as an exported HTML file upon request. The export will include: web pages in HTML format, assets folder (such as images) and a sitemap file. Please note that your new designer will need to re-create using their own platform.

HOW DO I KNOW HOW MANY VISITORS HAVE SEEN MY WEBSITE?

Each of our web design packages include a monthly e-mailed report which provides visitor history by date and location along with keywords used to find your website. You will be provided with a special link for your visitor history for your viewing via email. Please note only websites hosted by Mint Desk Media are provided the visitor report.

DO YOU ONLY WORK WITH BUSINESSES IN TEXAS?

No, we work with clients from all over the world. We are in the great city of Alvin, Texas, but we can design virtually and communicate with you via phone, Google Meets, Skype, Email, Zoom, etc.

If you purchased your domain from GoDaddy, we will provide you with instructions on how to grant access so we can be listed as a "technical" contact for the use of updating any technical domain name server information.

WHEN DO I PAY FOR THE RENEWAL OF MY DOMAIN?

Our MintCare Website Maintenance package includes automatic renewal of your domain, so you do not need to pay extra.

DOES MY DOMAIN INCLUDE A CUSTOM EMAIL ADDRESS?

No. A custom email that matches your domain (example: sales@mydomain.com) is not available as part of your domain registration. We do recommend Google WorkSpace or Outlook 365 for a custom business email that matches your domain. If you need help configuring, please contact us so we can provide a pricing estimate based on your needs.

WHY DO I NEED HOSTING?

Hosting is the space online that is reserved for your website. Think of it as the "home" of where your website lives. Without hosting, your website could not be available "online" for the public to view..
