18. Can we upgrade our website to a bigger plan or package later?
Yes. All our websites that are powered by WordPress are scalable and can be easily upgraded to a bigger website. You may even upgrade it to an eCommerce website in the future. You may also upgrade your website hosting anytime if you think that you already need a bigger disk space and bandwidth requirements. You may even downgrade your website hosting to our minimum requirement if you think you already need a smaller requirement to save money.
17. How do we avail your service and pay?
Simply contact us using the contact information or contact form in our contact page to let us check your business requirements. Once we come up with an agreement, you can then send your payment to us for us to start and complete your website. We can accept payments thru bank deposits (Metrobank and Unionbank), PayPal, Credit Cards via PayPal, Gcash, Palawan, and other available money transfer systems.
16. Do you develop online shop or eCommerce websites?
Yes, we develop online shop or eCommerce websites. We will also be offering affordable online shop website packages in the coming weeks, so stay tuned.
15. Where do you register our domain name?
We register the domain names of our clients directly to the accredited domain name registrars. For top level domain names, we register it to ICANN accredited registrars such as Namecheap, Inc. and GoDaddy. We usually manage all the domain names of our clients in our account to make sure that our clients can renew them when the names expire. Our clients can also request us to create a single unique account that they can manage on their own. We can also easily and instantly push their own domain name from our account to their own account upon request so they can have full and exclusive control.
For .PH domain names, we usually register it at dotPH Domains, Inc., which is the official domain name registry of the Philippines. Since .PH domain name transfer may require a more tedious process and document requirements, we create a single and dedicated domain name account for each client so that they can fully control and manage it.
14. What is the difference between a shared cheap hosting and a shared dedicated hosting?
There are basically 3 types of website hosting, namely, shared hosting, VPS hosting, and dedicated hosting. Shared hosting uses a single server which is used by several users and hosts hundred or even thousands of website owners whom you don’t have full control. When one of its users uses the server inappropriately, the whole server is compromised and so is your website. Shared hosting is also the cheapest hosting among the three.
A VPS hosting, as it name suggests, uses a Virtual Private Server. It mimics a dedicated server using a shared hosting environment. A VPS is more expensive and more powerful than a shared hosting but less powerful than a dedicated server.
A dedicated hosting uses a dedicated server which is fully controlled and managed by a single user. A dedicated hosting is the most expensive and most powerful among the three.
The difference between a shared “shared hosting” and a shared “dedicated hosting” is that the first is a “shared hosting” that is further shared to many users, while the latter is a dedicated hosting that is shared to several users. If your website is hosted in a shared “shared hosting”, you or your website designer don’t have any control of your server. Some website design companies used to resell cheap shared website hosting to their clients for more profit.
On the other hand, your website designer who fully manages a dedicated server, although shared to their several clients, has full control of the whole server. At WebsiteDESIGNER.PH, you can ensure that your website is hosted in our dedicated server, which we have full control and management.
13. Where do you host our website?
We have a dedicated server located in the US that we use to host all the website of our clients. We don’t host a client website elsewhere unless they request it. We do not host the websites of our clients in a cheap shared hosting shared and used by hundreds of stranger website owners whom we don’t have control. Although our dedicated server is shared by our clients, we make sure that only eligible clients are accepted to our service, and we have full management and control of them to make sure that no single user is abusing our server.
12. What do you mean by free one year updates?
This includes free one year minor updates on your website. Minor updates include editing texts, titles, description, and changing/removing photos on your website. After the turnover of website to the client, major updates like website redesign and recoding will require a new service agreement.
11. Do you develop websites that are not powered by WordPress?
Yes. We also develop websites using other website frameworks, CMS, and website builders. We even create websites from scratch. However, expect these websites to have a longer time of completion and with a more expensive price.
10. What kind of WordPress Templates do you use?
We only use Premium WordPress themes or templates to create WordPress websites for our clients. These themes are either covered with a developer’s license which we can use to our own clients or a special single license that we can use to only a single client. We never use free WordPress themes since they are easily accessible by anyone and have a higher security risk than premium themes. From the premium WordPress themes that we use, we then fully customize them according to the unique needs of our clients.
9. Is WordPress secure?
There is no absolute security on the Internet. Even the FBI or Pentagon can have a security breach. WordPress is known to be vulnerable to security attacks because it is an open-source software and is used by millions of users worldwide. However, that doesn’t mean that you cannot secure your WordPress website anymore.
The WordPress security team and developers are always upgrading the system to combat any security threats. WordPress has also a solid community that you can always ask for help if there is a problem. Aside from the above, we can also make our WordPress websites secure by using a secure website hosting with a reliable firewall to prevent attacks. Always upgrading your WordPress, themes, and plugins are also an important practice to secure your website.
In other words, security doesn’t really depend on what software you are using, but how do you use, control and manage it. Just think of the big businesses (see #8) that are using and trusting WordPress to power your websites.
8. What is WordPress?
WordPress is a popular, efficient, scalable, and powerful content management system used by small to big businesses worldwide. Among the notable websites which are powered by WordPress are the websites of BBC America, Mercedes-Benz, The New York Times Company, Facebook Newsroom, The Walt Disney Company, Microsoft News Center, The Official Site of Sweden, and Philippine government agencies such as the Department of Information of Communications Technology (DICT) and the Bureau of Treasury.
7. How many pages can I create with a 1GB disk space website hosting?
With 1GB disk space, you can already create hundreds of pages and blog pages, especially if your images are optimized. To fully save disk space, you can host your videos on YouTube, Instagram and Facebook, and just embed them on your website. This process will also make your website faster instead of making it slow to load in Internet browsers.
If you just need a starter website with 5-50 pages, a 1GB disk space is already more than enough for you. You don’t need to pay more for website hosting that offers higher disk space or unlimited space which are actually shared by hundreds of other website owners and are not secure. Remember that it’s better to get a 1 GB website hosting space which is manageable and secure than to get a 10GB website hosting space which is out of your control and is not secure.
6. What do you mean by unlimited blog pages?
This feature is also applicable to clients whose websites are built with WordPress. WordPress is the most powerful and effective blogging software right now. It lets website owners publish unlimited blog posts using a friendly blog page editor. This means that after we turn over the website to a client, the client can create and publish blog posts for as many as they can to the extent of their allocated website hosting disk space. The blog editor is useful if your business website has a blog or news section. Blogs also help your website be more visible on search engines like Google and trending on social media platforms like Facebook.
5. What do you mean by unlimited pages?
This feature is applicable to clients whose websites are built with WordPress Content Management System (CMS). WordPress lets website owners create unlimited pages using a user-friendly dashboard and page editor. This means that after we turn over the website to a client, the client can create additional pages using the WordPress page editor for as many as they can to the extent of their allocated website hosting disk space.
4. Can we avail a customized package that is not found in your plans or packages?
Yes. If you think our published website plans and pricing don’t fit to your specific needs, you may contact us to arrange a special package for your business.
3. How much does it cost to build my website?
