Of course, it is your responsibility to respond fulfill the order.

Can I use my own web address (or domain name) with my Designersi.com site, or do I have to use a web address that includes Designersi.com?

Both options are available to you.

We strongly recommend your own domain name (for example, www.mycompany.com) as it looks much more professional and will be easier to remember for your customers (as opposed to mycompany.designersi.com).You simply have to have your domain name point to our servers and we take care of the rest (we can help you manage this).

If you don’t have a domain name however, you can still have a domain set up through us temporarily or as long as you need (for example, mycompany.designersi.com).

| To Top |

If I already have a web site and would like to maintain the same design, can I still use Designersi.com?

Yes. Depending on what’s required, Designersi.com’s expert design team can modify your web site or duplicate it to work with our system. Because there are so many variables to take into account we charge an hourly fee based on what is required.

In many cases, our award-winning design team will actually upgrade your design and improve its functionality in order to augment your business’ presentation. Before we actually begin work, we provide you with a firm cost so you can budget accordingly.

It is also possible to roll this additional cost into easy-to-manage monthly payments (as opposed to lump sum fee).
