Frequently Asked Questions

WordPress is a content management system for making websites. It is the software that takes care of all the background code and programming so we can focus on designing great looking websites. Even better, it is open source. That means thousands of people around the world are working on improving it and adding great new features.
The Setup fee includes all the time you need working with our experts (for up to 30 days) to make a plan together, get your information collected and organized, have your website designed and built, go through a refinement and final polish step, and then we launch your beautiful new website.

After your website is launched, unlimited updates through our Support Department are included in your service package.

Please note that after 30 days, or for any additional revisions you require before your website is launched we bill $40/hr.
You can send us all your updates once a week. For pictures and wording updates, you just have to email to support@websites.ca and then you can even track our progress with our support ticket system. With catalog updates it is even easier. We’ll set up a spreadsheet that you and our designers can both see and update in real-time online.
WordPress:
  • You have the power to edit your site yourself
  • We help you login to your site, but we don’t train you on how to edit your site. WordPress is extremely well documented, so we simply refer you the documentation. Here are some great resources:
  • We keep a backup, so if you mess something up, we can restore your site the way we set it up for you.
Email:
  • We will help you setup your email program like Outlook, or set up email on your cellphone
  • We will show you how to login to webmail from anywhere
  • We don’t show you how to use Outlook or manage your emails
Wordpress has tons of help articles and videos build right in. It is designed for non-technical people to be able to use intuitively. Also, we offer ‘How to Use WordPress’ training.
As a technical limit, you can add up to 1GB of pictures and information to your website. That is about 500 pictures, so you will never run out of space.
It tracks the real visitors to your website. It tells you where they came from, what pages they clicked on, and a whole lot more.
The free month of service covers the time it takes to get your website up and running. We aim to get all new websites up and running within 30 days, but things sometimes happen that can cause delays. Either way, you aren’t billed for your first month of service until after 30 days or until your website is live.
You can pay by Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Paypal or cheque.
The website and email service is suspended if a payment is 30 days late. We make sure you’ve seen your invoice by email, or received a paper copy in the mail. An account is closed if a payment is 60 days late.
A page has a unique address on the internet. A page can have words, pictures, catalog items, a form, or almost anything. For example, our Home page is http://www.websites.ca/ and our Contact page is http://www.websites.ca/contact/.
A personalized email address is something like dave@companyname.com. We can also set up aliases like info@companyname.com or sales@companyname.com and have them forward to a personalized address automatically.
Yes! We register a domain name for you with you as the official Registrant (or owner). You can take over management of your domain name any time. It does cost around $20/year for you to do it yourself. That fee is included in our packages.

Blog is short for Web Log. It is for publishing information regularly.

Blogs are also great for getting your website noticed on the search engines like Google.
It tracks the real visitors to your website. It tells you where they came from, what pages they clicked on, and a whole lot more.
Sure! We would hate to see you go, so let us know if there is a problem we can fix. Otherwise, just give us at least a day or two notice before your billing date—a little bit more if you want to move your domain name and email to another provider. We’ll make the process of moving as easy as we can. And sorry, we can’t give a refund for the remainder of a month or if you have prepaid for the year. We pay for all of our server space and software in advance, so we need to know before you are billed that you don’t want to continue.
You can upgrade or downgrade at any time, your next month bill will reflect the change after the upgrade or downgrade is complete. We won’t bill you until your catalog is ready if you upgrade to the Catalog Package for example. The set-up fee is the difference from the package you are currently on. To upgrade from Standard to Blogging is $250 setup, for example.
A domain name is kind of like a phone number for the Internet. They thought ahead and decided to to use words instead of numbers. A domain name is letters and numbers followed by an ending like (.com) or (.ca). If you’re wondering, .com stands for commercial and .ca stands for Canada. Each country manages their own 2 letter ending.
