The result is that they get stuck trying to get something happening – but it’s never good enough, it’s never “done”. Or they don’t even get started, because it seems too overwhelming, or they think the budget simply won’t stretch that far.

Your Questions Answered
What type of domain name is included?
I will register the domain name of your choice, so long as its available to be registered. The domain will be registered in your name, with my name listed as the technical contact. This means that you own the domain, not me!
I will keep your domain registration valid for as long as you are using, and paying for, a Quick & Easy website. If you choose to discontinue the service, you will need to maintain the domain registration yourself.
* Please note that special requirements apply to registering .au domain names, which you will need to meet. See details.
What if I already have a domain name?
I’ll give you instructions for how you can easily update the settings to point the domain you have registered to your new Quick & Easy website.
Can I host my Quick & Easy site elsewhere?
No. Part of the reason the Quick & Easy websites are so affordable is that I have everything for them already set up and ready to go on my own server. To have to set this all up on another server/web host would take considerable time, and therefore it does not make it cost effective for me to do so.
If you wish to choose organise your own web hosting, you might like to consider a custom built website.
How long will it take to build my site?
The initial build time is stated in the package details above. This is the time it takes me to build your site once you have provided everything I need to start (such as logo, text and photos).
Once the site is built, you have the chance to review it, provide feedback and request revisions – the time this takes varies from client to client. The site usually goes live within 48 hours of you giving final approval.
How are website fees paid?
Quick & Easy websites require the build fee ($300 for Landing pages, $550 for Starter Sites) to be paid upfront before work commences. This can be paid by bank deposit or credit card.
On completion of the website, your maintenance subscription is initiated. You can choose to pay this monthly or yearly, via credit card or Paypal. Note: yearly subscriptions receive once month free.
Payment is due in advance of each subscription period. If for any reason payment is not received by the due date, your website service will be suspended. If payment is more than 30 days overdue, your website will removed from the server.
How do I cancel the service?
You can cancel the service at the end of your current subscription period, by notifying me 7 days in advance of your next payment date.
Please note, refunds are not available should you decide to discontinue the service part way through your subscription period.
I don't understand some of the terms on this site? Can you explain them?
Sure can! If you’re confused by any of the technical terms or jargon used throughout the site, see my glossary of web design terms for an explanation.
What about all the techie details?
Quick & Easy websites are built on WordPress, the world’s most popular website software (it powers around 30% of all websites online), with a popular page builder to make it super easy for even the most non-technical person to use. WordPress has been around for many, many years, and proven itself to be reliable, secure, flexible and extendable, with a huge community of users and developers.
The websites are hosted in the cloud, with data centres in Australia, USA, UK, Europe and Asia. This means your site will load fast for your visitors, no matter where in the world they are located.
