Frequently Asked Questions

What is Our Process for Building a Website. ...less info...
...learn more...
 

Webbit specializes in creating and managing websites for local businesses in the Greater Toronto - Hamilton area.

We offer a variety of services including website design, specialized web based applications, hosting and site management.

We begin with a consultation to assess the client's web needs and current marketing efforts.

  • Review of existing web presence if any.
  • Review of social media presence (Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Twitter, Pinterest, YouTube).
  • Review of existing or proposed marketing materials, photographs, multimedia

We then learn about your business goals and what makes your operation unique. From that we work on strategies which suite you business needs.

The key is to try to identify the characteristics and strengths of your company  and products so that we can present them to the best advantage over the competition

What Do I need to do? ...less info...
...learn more...
 

When we meet with you it would be good to be able to see what promotional material you already have for your business or organization.  If there is someone within your group who is involved with your marketing, or has previous experience with building and maintaining a website, it would be ideal to be able to meet with that person at the same time.

Someone in your organization will need to be involved with the project as the point person to help get things approved at your end... such as colour schemes, wording and what pictures you would like to use.

It would also be good for you to have some sort of budget in mind for building a website because there can be extra costs such as hiring a photographer, videographer, and you will need to have certain documents such as your Privacy Policy, Copyright Policy, Terms of Use/ Website Disclaimer run by a lawyer.  There are very good policy generators on the web but they are not a replacement for sound legal advice.

...learn more...
 

Most jobs are taken on for a fixed price base on agreed upon specifications.  Occasionally where what is needed is hard to nail down to a list of requrements where we can estimate the time required to complete them.  In those cases, we would bill hourly against an agreed upon budget so that there are no surprises.

Website hosting in Canada. ...less info...
...learn more...
 

After a major move of 20 websites in January 2019, all of our websites are now hosted in Canada at HostPapa.  This means that we are operating under Canadian Copyright and Privacy Laws instead of trying to comply with both Canadian and US Law, which are not always the same.  HostPapa offers excellent 7x24 telephone support as well as live support with an agent through a chat box.  I have dealt with them for about 10 years and I have found their service to be excellent.

Pricing for Hosting is in Canadian Dollars so we do not need to worry about big swings in costs due to the value of the Canadian Dollar.

Most of our domain names are registered in the US through GoDaddy.  For those who wish to have domain names hosted in Canada, we have a Canadian hosting provider.  We do NOT recommend hosting your domain name with your website hosting provider as a basic sound business practice of keeping those services separate.
