What is Professional SiteBuilder?

The Professional SiteBuilder website package is designed specifically for small business owners who want a full-featured, custom website at an affordable price. It includes the website setup, 1st year included hosting, and website design customizations. Content edits, page additions, blog posts, image galleries, etc. can be done through the site's easy-to-use content management system. 

What is the content management system (CMS) based on? Is it open-source?

The Professional SiteBuilder CMS is a proprietary system originally based on our popular Online Candidate® political campaign website CMS. This version is designed for businesses looking for a long-term website presence. The main issue in designing a CMS is balancing features and usability. Our goal was to create an easy to use system that allowed for an attractive, full-featured website that is simple to use and update. Check out our Site Demo to get a feel for how it works.

How much does the SiteBuilder Package cost?

The Professional SiteBuilder package costs $599. It is a complete package, including initial domain registration, hosting and custom template design, along with additional built-in website features.

Plus, we set up your initial website content for you! We'll arrange your site text and images for a pleasing design. After that, it's all in your control. Site setup is performed ONCE with the materials provided.

Are there any hidden fees?

No. Everything is up-front and the prices are inclusive. There are NO hidden fees.

What are the website design limitations?

While the basic page layouts are standard, the design is customized, based on the client's specifications. The page template header, colors and page fonts is edited to create a unique look. The headers can be tall or short; we can add backgrounds or match any business color scheme.

What email is included?

The package includes 5 permanent email accounts and an unlimited amount of email forwards. Or, if you choose, we can configure your email with Google Apps or redirect the domain MX (email) record to your existing email service.

Can I see a demo of how SiteBuilder works?

How does the ordering process work?

After you order your website package, you will be sent to a form where you will provide details of your chosen domain name and provide some specifics about your business and website. Then we will purchase your domain name (in your name) and set up your website hosting and begin a design mockup. After your domain goes live, we will send you an e-mail containing your user ID and password, and a link to the "Admin" area. From there, you will have all the tools at your disposal to build out and maintain your site.

What support do you supply?

Our success hinges on your success. We want your site to look sharp, both in design and content layout.

Your SiteBuilder administration contains links to our extensive Knowledge Base. Should you have questions on how to use the system, or any other question, feel free to contact us. We always welcome feedback or suggestions for our product.

We can also perform limited custom system edits on request. Many of our website features were based on user requests, so don't be afraid to ask. However, extensive programming work may incur additional charges.

Can I use my own domain name?

If your domain name is already registered: Online Candidate websites reside on our dedicated servers. Following signup, we will provide information to 'point' your domain name to our servers.

If your domain name is not already registered: We will register your domain for you, in your name, when we set up your website.

Can I migrate to the Professional SiteBuilder system if I have an existing website?

Definitely! Let us know about your existing site and we'll be able to let you know how we can migrate your existing website over to us. It can usually be done with a minimum of fuss and without a loss of existing search engine rankings.

How soon can my website be set up?

Once we have the client content, it typically takes about 5-7 business days to get your domain set up, create initial design and add the content. Having specific colors in mind, a logo graphic and an idea of the design you want ahead of time makes the process go a faster.

On what server do you host client websites?

All our client websites are hosted on our own private servers. The only websites on these servers are sites that we control.

Will my website appear in the search engines? How soon?

Our websites are designed to be indexed easily by search engines. In addition, we backlink new websites to several bookmarking websites in order to trigger search engine spiders to find and index the website. If you have other social media profiles, such as Facebook or LinkedIn, you should link to your website through them when your site goes live. We've seen new websites appear on Google in as little as a few days, but it can sometimes take longer. We cannot make guarantees as to how or when your website will appear on the search engines.

How much is hosting and domain renewal?

Annual hosting is $240/year after your first included year of hosting. Domain name renewal is $20/year, unless you control your own domain name.

What other web products/services do you provide?

We provide a variety of web marketing services, including search engine optimization, local search marketing, link building and traffic acquisition, consulting services and more. Visit DaleyPWS.com for more information.
