General Design Questions
Payment & Updating Questions
How long will it take for my web site to be designed?
The timescale of a website design project is in most cases dictated by the client. In most cases we are waiting for information for the website pages from the client. If you have a deadline, then you will in most cases have the information ready for the website and we will endeavor to meet it for you. The most common delay in the creation and completion of a new website is waiting for content (text or images) to be sent to us by the client.
So how long it will take to complete a website will depend on how quickly you can provide us with information for your pages.
Will we need to meet face to face to build a website?
No. We have designed websites for people and companies in over 50 countries around the world to date from the UK to Australia and Bangkok to Dublin. We have not received an enquiry from a customer in Germany and had to jump on a plane to Berlin to discuss the website face to face with the customer.
Most communication is carried out via the Internet so in the majority of cases a meeting isn't necessary. When we design and work on your website we place it online in a private place where only yourselves and us can view the content. This is where you will see your website hence your reason to get a website and go online. We then liaise with you regularly to discuss the web designs in order that the website design and functionality is exactly as you wish.
Can you provide content for my website
In most cases we can provide images for your website and help and advise on the text content for your pages. However, this is your website, this is your company and these are the products and services that you are selling. So you will know what information better than anyone that you would like on your website pages.
What format should I supply words and images for my site?
We require any text and images from you for your website in electronic form. For example, the files the text in MS word or a similar format and images from a digital camera or images in general that you have in GIF or JPEG format. We do not work with any scanned images sent for example drawn on a piece of paper as the quality is to low to make your site look good. In most cases we will help to find suitable images for use on your website.
Will everyone see my web site the same?
Your website visitors will see some things differently depending on their browser, screen resolution setting and their individual computer settings and toolbars. We design sites with that in mind and preview them in several browser types and resolution settings before publishing. Obviously as technology alters then eventually all websites may need reevaluation.
Do you use Flash animation in your website design?
We prefer not to design sites with flash as they can be quite expensive to create and we like to be able to provide web design solutions at an affordable costs. However, should you require a flash website then we may be able to help. It is important to note that there are times when flash animations can be an asset but it would be unwise to use "flash" to create an entire website or even entire pages of your website as search engines are not able to read the content of flash and therefore any words used in animations will not be indexed by the search engines.
How many pages can I have on my web site?
As many as you like. From a search engines point a view - The more the better as the more pages you have the more chance you have of customers finding your website online.
What if I do not like the design?
If you do not like the design which we have suggested for you then we will change it. We would not like to think that you are not happy with the final website design so we work until you are happy and ready for the website launch.
Who owns the website once the website design is completed?
Once you have paid for your website design then the website belongs to you.
How much will a website cost me?

A small web site with just a few static pages would cost less than a full ecommerce website with a large number of pages and a CMS system. Simply send us an email with your website design requirements and we will provide you with a fixed quotation.
What after sales service do you provide?

If you have a small website consisting of just a few pages and will only wish to make changes very infrequently, then usually it is more cost effective simply to ask Pattayamedia.com to carry out these changes for you. Other methods which are frequently chosen are largely dependant upon how much data or information and pictures you have and how you store this information at present.

When can I update my website content?
If the website we have designed for you includes a Content Management System then you can access your administration areas from anywhere as long as you have an internet connection and make updates instantly as frequently as you wish. If your website is a smaller website and was designed without using this type of system and you don't have any html. skills, then we can update the website for you. Our charges are very reasonable.
Can I have an e-commerce system for my website?
Yes you can. An e-commerce website will naturally cost more than a basic information website as is more complex. But to have a e-commerce website you would need to be able to accept payment online via a third party payment provider such as PayPal, Worldpay, Protex or whichever third party you wish to use.
How can I accept credit cards on my website?
There are various methods availably to you. There are essentially two main methods of accepting credit cards. The first method is where you use your own pdq. card machine and process the card payment yourself which is very hard to get and the second method uses an online clearance company such as PayPal. Once you are sure which method you wish to use, we can design your website accordingly.
Will my website design be Search Engine Friendly?
All our websites are created with search engines in mind and the website design is compliant with search engine guidelines. It is a good idea for your website to be re-evaluated in time as over a period of time the search engines do alter their rules and algorithms and you will want to be certain that your website is kept up to date and complies with new rules etc.
How to choose which web designer to design my website?
There are thousands of web designers to choose from of which most can be found on the Internet. Which web designer should you choose? What knowledge should your web designer have? Which website design company should I choose? Request to see some of their work, request a price quote and make sure they can deliver the end result.
Do I need a database on my website?
This will depend upon the amount of information you wish to be displayed on your website. If you have many products/services, then it may be advantageous to have a database incorporated into your website design. We will discuss this in detail with you and if a database is advised we will explain in detail exactly how this will work. We can tailor your website design to suit your specific requirements.
Can you provide all our web design and hosting services?
Yes, we prefer to host websites we have created ourselves because we know our hosting services are reliable and that your website will function correctly on them. In most cases if there is a problem with your site that we designed but is not hosted with us then you may contact us to find out what is wrong but is not our problem because your site is not hosted with us and we are unable to help you.
