The way that LDS operates is to agree a price before work commences. This would normally take place after a consultation by person, email, telephone and / or questionnaire to establish your requirements. LDS are happy to offer advice and quotations free of charge.

Costing a website design is not easy due to the numerous features that a client may require. Self-Employed businesses may just require a basic single page consisting of a logo, a couple of photographs and approximately 300 words of text, approximating to a single A4 sheet. Whereas, a small business may require considerably more detail and extra features as interactive pages and databases.

As a rule of thumb, prices usually start from £50 per page which includes any copy typing of text, scanning of images, creating PDF documents, uploading of files to hosting site.

During the design process, the website will be placed in a restricted area until approved. Once approval has been granted, then the files are uploaded to the website on the hosting provider and then the site is classed as 'live'.

As part of the LDS package, the client can purchase a support contract feature which is payable monthly, bi-annually or annually. The purpose of this is to allow the client to make a pre-agreed amount of changes per month without incurring extra costs. The cost of the support contract is a minimum of 20% or £25 / month of the overall charge, whichever is the lesser and according to the complexity of the website. Details will be supplied at time of quotation. Re-design of a site is excluded and is treated as a new project.

To enhance the clients visability in the global market, registration to free search engines is provided. For an extra cost, submission to the top 20 search engines can be arranged. Re-submission on a quarterly basis is charged at £5 per URL.

As part of the service, LDS can arrange Web Hosting & Domain Name Registration, which will be charged at cost and be the responsibilty of the client to maintain. The packages start from £4 per month. An E-Commerce website will start from £10 per month. With this service, statistics are available for analysis. If required, analysis of the statistics can be arranged for a fee, in the form of a report or the creation of web page on the website.

The Website will be checked as a minimum for compatibility with Internet Explorer, Firefox and Opera browsers.

If you have a requirement, then please contact us stating a brief summary of requirements.
