frequently asked questions

How much of my time will it take to set this site up?

You can set up a GS site yourself in just a few minutes. We have found that most of our clients prefer to talk to a real person. So we are happy to set your site up for you at no charge. It can be done in person (we love to show you how to do it on your own computer) or over the phone, in about 10 minutes.

Do I have to make all the updates to my web site myself?

No. We are happy to do them for you, if you wish. There is a small fee for doing updates. Because we use the same tools we provide you to make changes to your site, it takes less time than using normal web development tools. So, it's less expensive to have updates done, even when you ask us to do them.

Do I have to sign a contract?

No. There is no contract to sign and no minimum length of subscription. You can cancel at any time.

How long will it take for my site to be "Live"?

This varies depending on whether you have a domain name already or you are registering a new one. If we register a .com, .net, .org or .info domain name for you, your site is usually active in about 30 minutes. If we register a .ca, it usually takes about a day. If you are using a domain name you have registered with another provider, it usually takes between 12 and 72 hours.

Can I start with a predesigned layout and have a custom site built for me later?

Yes. We have many clients who do this. Try it out using a predesigned layout to make sure it works for you and then have a custom site designed.

Why are your custom site designs so much less expensive than other web developers?

The main reason is that all the cost goes toward the design, not creating content or custom programing features and tools for you to use. For the most part, they have already been developed and you don't have to pay to have them custom built again.

Do I have to pay for upgrades to my GS System?

The GS System has been in the works for over two years and there is no end in sight. There is no charge to you when they upgrade. From time to time, they add completely new features and, depending on the development costs, there may be a small additional charge if you want to use those features on your site.
