Frequently Asked Questions
The short answer: Our prices depend on so many factors, it's impossible to say in one sentence. Avoid any web developer who can answer this question without a long talk.
The long answer: To get a better idea of the cost of what you want to build, give us a quick phone call. We'll ask you a few questions about the nature of the site, what sort of interactivity the site will have, your graphic design needs, etc. Then we'll be able to give you a ballpark figure.
If you talk to a web developer who gives you an instant quote, run away! Imagine telling someone you want a car and having them immediately giving you a price for that car. Any fair and honest car salesperson would want to know the make, model and engine type of the car you're looking to purchase, right? The same goes for building web sites. Depending on the features you want for your web site, the cost can be anywhere from a few thousand dollars to a few million.
We've seen those ads on the side of the road, too. Be wary of anyone who says they'll build you a web site or sell you a car for $600. There's a possibility they'll take your money and run. What's more likely is that they'll take your money and then build your site with a template. They may have a lot of templates to choose from, but they'll all be rather generic. They'll ask you for five pages of text and then slap it into a template and that's it. You can't have custom graphic design; you can't have any interactivity and it will look like a $600 site.
Remember, a consultation with Metro Graphix is always free and we just might be able to prevent you from wasting a thousand bucks.
Every web site must have a domain name. A domain name is your web site's unique address on the Internet.
As an example, the domain name for Metro Graphix is http://www.metrographix.com. The most common domain names will end in .com, .net, or .org, but there are many more to choose from.
After your registration, you will be given full access information to your own, personal domain name control panel. In many cases, our clients request us to manage, update, transfer or change their registration information so they don't have to worry about learning the technical aspects of web maintenance.
