Frequently Asked Questions

Why do I need a website?
The Internet is recognized as one of the most cost effective forms of advertising available - soon every business will appear there in some form, and if your competitors get there first, then you could be missing out. It is fast becoming the new "Yellow Pages." More and more people use it everyday, and its growth shows no signs of stopping, or even slowing. Shouldn't you be there?

How much does a website cost?
There are quite a few factors that are going to affect the ultimate cost of your website. These factors include how many pages you are going to have, if you will sell products on your website, the graphic work involved, and how interactive your future website will be. You will also need web hosting and domain name registration.
How long does it take to have a website designed?
The time frame is determined by the size of your website, the complexity of your site design, and our current client design schedule. House Party Web Productions has created a website as quickly as two days to as long as six months.
What do you need for a website?
A Computer: Although highly recommended, it is not necessary for you to have a computer but it is essential for those wishing to view your site.
ISP: an Internet Service Provider is how you connect to the Internet. This ISP will provide you with an email address to communicate by electronic mail (email).
Domain Name: This is; your address or home page on the Internet.
Hosting: An Internet presence provider. This is where your website is stored for the world to view.
Website Design: You'll need all the codes, computer language, scripts and graphics which, when put together, formulate your website into a viewable form for the world to see.
FTP: File Transfer Protocol to transfer information to and from your website for updates, repair, edits and changes. This is how web designers communicate with your domain at the host.
Maintenance: Updates, additions, changes, and most importantly, search engine analysis and submission of the pages that make up your website.
What is "E-commerce"?
E-commerce simply means Electronic Commerce. It is the buzzword for the new millennium, and for very good reason. The Internet is changing the way business is done with literally billions of dollars being made over the Internet. E-commerce gives you the ability to accept payment over the Internet by either credit card or electronic checks. Through E-commerce, you can sell products or services instantly to anyone in the world without having to constantly monitor your website.
Why can't I find my web site in the search engines?
Once your site has been submitted to the top Search Engines they may require several weeks, or even months to actually spider and list your web site in their directory. How fast your site is listed depends on each individual Search Engines database update schedule. Watch your server traffic logs for visiting spiders. If you use a Guaranteed Search Engine Submit, your site can be listed on AOL, MSN, Overture in a couple of days, the cost or this service varies depending on who you use to do list you. House Party Web Productions submits your site to the top search engines for free (Google, Yahoo, DMOZ, etc).
