Frequently Asked Questions
- QU. How long after I submit my order will my website be ready?
- ANS: After you have placed your order, you will receive a link to an online questionnaire. Once you have completed and submitted the questionnaire, we will have your new website completed within 5 business days.
- QU: What are the ongoing, annual costs?
- ANS: The first year there are no ongoing costs if your package comes with 12months hosting and .com domain registration. After the first year, you will be invoiced $55 incl GST for 2 years domain name registration (for .com.au domains and $27.50 p/yr for .com domains) and you will be invoiced $220 inc GST for 12 months website and email hosting. So effectively, if you add these two amounts, the annual costs will be a total of $247.50 incl GST.
- QU: The package comes with a .com domain name, can I instead swap it for a .com.au domain name?
- ANS: Unfortunately, due to Australian regulations, .com.au domain names can only be registered in 2 year blocks. You cannot register a .com.au domain name for 1 year. We can register a .com.au domain name for you and point the name servers to your new website, but .com.au domain name registrations will incur a cost of $55 (for 2 Years @ $25p/yr + gst)
- QU. Where is your office located?
- ANS: Budget Websites’ office is located in Perth, Western Australia and is owned and operated by webdesigner, Heath Sikkema. Heath has been running his own webdesign business since 2008 when he set up Splotch Studio in Melbourne Victoria (still operating today). In addition to webdesign, Heath has a background in graphic design and marketing.
- QU: Your Budget Website package doesn’t have all of the features that I require. Are you able to add some additional features to my website?
- ANS: Yes. The Budget Website package has been specially developed to accommodate start-up business and small businesses, but we have also developed customised, high-end sites for larger companies and clients. We are able to build upon your website package to include any number of additional features. Simply contact us with your requirements and we will be able to provide you with a quote for the additional features.
