Frequently Asked Questions


  • How much does a website cost?

    While this question is probably the number one question we're asked, it's also the most difficult one to answer. We've developed sites for under $500.00 and over $40,000. The answer here is completely dependent on the features and functionalities you require and who is your target audience. You may need a 5-page basic site or a dynamic site with unlimited number of pages. You may require the ability to update the content yourself, or a site which is completely dynamic. You may desire a shopping cart, Flash animation, streaming video or other special tool/feature. We can give you a free quote once we have your specific needs and requirements understood.

  • How long will the job take? When can we go live with the website?

    This is an important question for both the client and the developer. Like anything, a good Web site takes time. Because we focus on custom solutions, we need to work with you to develop your site to meet your needs. It's a very interactive process that will evolve into a remarkable website for your organization. That being said, to build a website properly and thoroughly, you can expect an average timeline of 6-12 weeks. Many sites will take longer due to their complexity, but one of the first things that we deliver is a detailed timeline for the project with the quote. With continuous communication with our clients, we meet at each stage of the project and deliver your websites on time and within budget.

  • What is web development?

    Web development is a broad term for any activity related to developing a website for the World Wide Web or an intranet. This may include e-commerce business development, web design, web content development, and client-side/server-side scripting. Web development can range from developing the simplest static single page of plain text to the most complex web-based internet applications, electronic businesses, or social network services.

    However, web development is an evolutionary process for every individual client. Some businesses may require more basic catalog style websites whereas larger businesses may feel that an Intranet or an e-commerce style web design is more appropriate. At LJ Web Management, we can help you tailor a business solution that meets your business requirements.

  • Isn't web development and web design the same thing?

    All web sites are created using basic web design techniques but web development, or Web programming, is only used when a site needs to be interactive, dynamic or perform a function that is outside of the realm of static web site design.

  • What is the difference between a static website and a dynamic database driven site?

    To understand dynamic web pages, we have to understand normal or in other words 'static' web pages. Typical static web pages do not change every time the page is loaded, nor do they change if a user clicks on a button.

    In a nutshell: Static web pages always look the same and their content never changes unless a new version is uploaded on the web server.

    Dynamic pages do the opposite, they can change every time they are loaded, and its content depends on the user interaction. One of the most common types of dynamic site is the database driven type. This means that you have a web page that grabs information from a database and inserts that information into the web page each time it is loaded.

    One common example is an online banking site where you can log in and check your bank account information. Your bank account information is stored in a database and has been connected to the web page with programming thus enabling you to see your banking information.

  • Do you use ready-made website templates?

    No and Yes. We know your business is unique and need a one-of-a-kind website to reflect your business. So, we prefer to give you a solution designed for you alone. On the contrary, though we do not recommend ready-made templates, we also consider your budget, and will use templates if you wish and agree to the same.

  • What is a web application or web based application?

    A web application is a program that runs on the web. Typically interactive, the application accepts input from the web user, processes the input, and displays the results. Web applications usually have a multi-tier architecture and use technologies such as ASP, XML, .NET, PHP and database connectivity to perform the data processing.

  • What kind of technology do you support?

    We are experienced in the following programming languages and applications: XHTML, JavaScript, Active Server Pages (ASP), ASP.NET, DHTML, AJAX, Cold Fusion, XML, PHP, Oracle Database Server, Microsoft SQL Database Server, Flash, and others. All technologies will be non-proprietary, mainstream, and will rely on open architecture.

  • Will you handle the technical tasks, like setting up hosting, transferring domain names, etc.? If so, will there be extra charges?

    Yes, you have the option of registering your domain and hosting your site wherever you please, provided it fulfills the development requirements. However, if you do not want to go through the hassle – we will be more than happy to provide registration and hosting services with an additional cost.

  • What is e-commerce?

    E-commerce is a general term for any type of business, or commercial transaction that involves the transfer of information and funds across the Internet. This covers a huge range of dealings, from consumer-based retail sites through auction and music sites, to trading goods or services between corporations, and more.

  • Do you provide marketing services for my new Website?

    Definitely. We are skilled in all types of online marketing, including pay-per-click advertising, link building, banner advertising, e-mail outreach, and guerrilla marketing.

  • Do you provide search engine marketing services?

    Yes. Any development work undertaken by us will be built in accordance with current search engine indexing technology, in an effort to obtain the highest natural placement possible. Additionally, our search engine optimization services can extend to websites that we have not developed. Where organic results may be unpredictable, we also offer pay-per-click services to manage your paid advertising campaigns through Google and Yahoo! Overture.

  • After launch of my new site, how long will it take to obtain visibility in the search engines?

    Unfortunately, this is not an easy answer due to the unknowns associated with evolving search engine behavior. However, in our experience, new domains typically achieve search engine visibility in approximately three to four weeks after the launch of the site. Your site may obtain visibility in Yahoo! and MSN prior to Google, due largely to initial aging delays that withhold new websites from Google for a length of time before indexing. While we develop websites to be compatible with search engine indexing technology, there may be unavoidable delays in obtaining organic visibility. During this delay, we encourage you to focus on other marketing strategies to drive traffic to your site.

  • Is cross-browser incompatibility really a problem?

    Yes, incompatibilities are almost inevitable. A simple web page is likely to display on all browsers without problems, but the appearance may differ slightly on various browsers. A complex page or a web application may fail on some browsers if it is not properly coded and thoroughly tested. We are aware of the problems and use W3C CSS and W3C XHTML standards to code websites. We use CSS style sheets to ensure a robust maintainable layout, and we test our sites on multiple browsers to be sure they work properly.

  • Is there a charge to change or update my site?

    There is no charge if you opt for a Content Management System (CMS). With CMS you will have a self-editable website where you can access the site, with a User ID and password, and make changes as often as you like. This is a very popular option for businesses that would prefer to save money by making their own site updates.

    If you do not want a CMS based website, you have two options. You can either opt of our hourly maintenance rate or choose a yearly-maintenance plan. Changing text or images, or making basic layout changes such as color would usually fall in this category. Adding an additional feature or a tool would be a new task and would require a new quote.

  • Do you do fixed Price Quotations or Time based billing – and why is this good for the customer?

    Traditional Web Design and Development companies tend to use time-based billing practices. However, time-based billing has a number of significant drawbacks for their clients. For example, what happens if your project takes longer or requires more resources than the developer originally estimated?

    LJ is not your traditional web development company. We are proud to offer our clients fixed-price quotations if they prefer. This offers you the peace of mind that comes from knowing that your investment is capped.

    Adding a new feature or functionality not quoted initially, would require a new quote.
