Who will provide my web hosting?

While we do not have in-house web hosting, we do have strong opinions and recommendations for web hosting providers.

How long does it take to build a website?

It’s difficult to say for certain without specifics. On average, hourly website updates can be completed in as little as a week and simple websites can take anywhere from 2-6 weeks to complete. For more complex and in depth projects such as a brand new e-commerce site or a well designed WordPress blog, 3-6 months is more accurate. Like the previous question, it’s best if you give us a call to review your specific needs.

How much does Dash Creative charge for a website?

Well, that depends on a lot of factors. Are you building an e-commerce site? How fast is your turn around? Does your website need a CRM or modified CMS? Do you need graphics, illustrations, or photography? The list goes on and on.

Pricing can honestly range from a few thousand to hundreds of thousand for a standard website. On the flip side, a website tune up requiring hourly services may only be just a few hundred. It’s incredibly difficulty to say without any details.

The easiest way to get an idea of pricing is by sending us a message or giving us a quick call. Within a few minutes of discussing your creative needs, we can give you an estimate and depending on what you’re looking for, it may be best to set up a time to meet at our office.
