How much does a website design cost?
This is by far the most asked question we receive. The answer is a little more complicated than just a dollar amount. 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 web site will be. Each project is evaluated prior to a contract and a proposal is given based on the amount of hours we estimate the project would take.
For example, design and development of template-based website with just a few static pages would cost around $400 whereas a custom-built eCommerce website with a large number of pages and a CMS system could cost anywhere between $1000 and $10000. If you give us a call we will be pleased to discuss with your website design requirements and give you a fixed quotation.
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. Website design and development process can take anywhere from one to ten weeks.
What is your web design process?
After years in the business and working closely with our clients, we have developed a simple and efficient five phase web design process by which we plan, design, and produce a website.
I run a small/medium size business and want an online presence. What do I need to achieve this?
You need a professionally developed website, a domain name, and a web hosting service for your website. After development of your site is complete, you should also consider a website maintenance and Search Engine Optimization (SEO) services.
What is domain name?
Domain name is the address that users will enter in their web browser to access your web site. For example this site's domain name is varsys.com. ".com" extension is most common for commercial web sites.
What is website maintenance?
It is important that your website is frequently updated in terms of information present to ensure that your visitors get a revitalized impression on every visit. It helps you retain your existing and loyal visitors' attention and also give your new visitors the latest information about your services. Fresh content is what will keep your visitors coming back.

Do I need to hire a "local" website designer?
Varsys creates websites for clients who are local as well as out of state. In the majority of cases a meeting isn't necessary and website development is generally completed with contact via email and telephone. We place suggested website designs and revisions onto the Internet in a private place where only yourselves and us can view the content.
