Frequently Asked Questions

WordPress? But I need a website, not a blog. Can I use WordPress for a website?

WordPress is a “content management system” (a CMS, for short). It is the best blogging platform in the world, but it is also used to develop solid, easy-to-manage and easy-to-use websites.

Why should I use WordPress?

  • WordPress gives you complete control over your content. It’s yours. You own it.
  • WordPress makes it super-easy to add and edit your content. If you can type and format at Word document, you can use WordPress.
  • WordPress is optimized for search engines right out of the box. This doesn’t mean that you don’t have to worry about SEO. It just means that you start out using the best tools for the job.
  • WordPress is highly customizable, thanks to the myriad of plugins (both paid and free) that are available.
  • Because it is open-source software backed by a smart and loyal community of developers, WordPress continues to grow and expand. You don’t have to worry about WordPress becoming obsolete.

What’s the difference between WordPress.com and WordPress.org?

WordPress.com is a free blogging platform like Blogger or Typepad. It’s free, but you don’t really own your website or blog with those services. You are very limited in your ability to customize your site on WordPress.com.

WordPress.org, on the other hand, is the self-hosted version of WordPress. You host the WordPress software on your own hosting account, so you own your blog or website. Plus, with WordPress.org you get to take advantage of all the powerful capabilities of the WordPress platform. Really, it’s the only way to go.

What about hosting? What do I get and how much does it cost?

If you currently do not have hosting, I will give you instructions on how to acquire it. Hosting costs roughly $80/year. There are a couple of companies that I prefer to use for hosting (Bluehost is one of them). If you do not have hosting yet, please do not acquire hosting before we talk about it. There are certain parameters that have to be met in order to launch your new site without a hitch.

If you already have hosting, please note that there may be a surcharge of $75.00 if your hosting account does not run cPanel. If in doubt, please use the Contact form to ask me before choosing a package.

If you don’t currently have a domain name (like writedesignmedia.com or Google.com), then we will discuss this, too, after you have chosen your package. I will help you acquire a domain name (which usually runs about $10.00/yr.).

Can you customize the theme for me so that it looks unique?

Customization is not included in the packages. However, we do customization all the time. Contact us and let us know what you are looking for. We’ll send you a quote of the cost.

What do you need from me to set up my site?

We set everything up for you. You provide the content… the text and images that will go on your site. If you want to take advantage of our low package prices but you do not have your content ready yet, don’t worry. Go ahead and choose your package and lock in the low price. We’ll set up your site and put “placeholder” text and images on the pages, which you can switch out with your content whenever you’re ready.

Are there any additional costs?

The only additional costs are domain name registration and hosting. Domain names are about $10.00/year. Hosting averages about $80.00/year. If you do not have hosting, please do not get it yet! There are a couple of hosting companies that I prefer to work with (and I’ll be happy to tell you why once we start on your project). If you do already have hosting, there may be a surcharge of $75.00 if your hosting service does not run cPanel.

How long will this process take?

Usually this process takes just a day or two. But, please keep in mind, that this does not included weekends. If you order on the weekend, we can typically have you up and running on Monday.
