A domain name is your unique address on the internet. For example www.yourcompanyname.com
A web host is a business that provides storage on their servers for your files. They also provide the internet connectivity so your website displays. If you have an existing host, no problem, we can work with that. If you need to find one we can make some recommendations.
Creating a website is hard work, so we need your help. To keep the project on track and going smoothly we will need certain things from you.

In WordPress there are a few ways to start building a website. Entirely from scratch , To find a theme (which is like a template) and make changes, or to use an existing theme as is.
Are you using a theme, customizing a theme or designing from scratch A theme is a a type of template that has the entire layout done information is plugged in and then it is customized to meet the needs of your business.
Yes, we use them! Plugins are a way to customize or extend the features of a WordPress website. It allows us to use chunks of code that developers have already written and tested. Developers update their plugins often so that they play nice with other plugins and themes. Some examples of plugins that we use: Yoast SEO, Nnja & Gravity Forms, W3 Total Cache, Mail-Chimp to name a few. If you have a heck of a bunch of extra cash laying around we would be happy to write a custom plugin for you, but we really prefer to use the ones that are out there already!
YES YES YES. These days more and more users are going to find you from their mobile devices. If your website doesn’t load or look nice on their phones and tables they are not going to hang around. So we make sure that whatever we deliver to you is Responsive and Mobile friendly.
