What if I want to use my own hosting platform?

You are welcome to use your own hosting platform, but we will then not be able to manage your hosting environment and can not guarantee fast loading times, your website security, backups etc.

What is the process?

After we have established your needs and we have defined a design and development brief, we will provide you with a link where you can drop all your website elements, such as images, text etc. Werkstatt then creates an initial layout according to your specifications and invite you to view a live version of your website for testing. At this point you will be able to test all the functionality, contemplate the design and ask for revisions. We allow two revision rounds p/build, but also allow room for minor revisions. When we finalize the build and you sign off, pay the remaining 50%, we hand over your website and provide you with full training.

What if I need your support or want more revisions after you handed over the website?

We provide free support after hand over via Email. This includes any additional training you might need, relevant to creating pages, posts, adding and optimizing images, removing elements, adding products, managing an online store etc. Free support does not include CSS/HTML changes to your website or any changes that require coding. For changes that require coding, we charge R150 p/hour.

I don't want to manage my website, can you take care of that?

We will be happy to manage your website content. In this case, you can send us any revisions, blog posts etc., when necessary and we will update your website accordingly. For this service, we have a monthly subscription fee of R1500, which also includes your hosting and all other fees for the entire term.
