Frequently Asked Questions
The price of a website depends on three types of costs; fixed costs, development costs and maintenance costs. These in turn depend on the type of website to be built; rapid, premium or e-commerce.
Prices range from ZAR 3,500 (Euro 193) to as much as you are willing to spend.
By many people. All our projects are project management driven. One central, dedicated accounts manager interfaces and collaborates with the client and the appointed specialists such as web designers, graphic artists, writers, engineers and programmers to cause an asset to be constructed to the client’s specification, on budget and on time.
A Southrand website typically begins life in one of our sandboxes. During the sandbox phase our engineers and technicians have control. Once they are fully satisfied that the asset behaves as it has been designed to do, it moves to an incubator. Once in the incubator the content development team takes over from technical until it is ready for testing, at which point the project manager takes control of the completed web asset and co-ordinates testing and handing over procedures with the client.
Anything between 3 hours and many months, from the first time you contact us.
No. We are a design and development company. Websites should be hosted in trusted environments recommended for your region. We build all websites on our servers and move them to their final destinations once the client is satisfied with the product and able to take over the maintenance of the asset.
However, we do host sites at standard rates for short term rapid development sites when required. (Anything under a year is considered short term)
Our Data Centre is located in the European Union and is administered from our office in Lisbon, Portugal.
Yes – but not often. We build websites and platforms so that our clients can take care of their own assets without having to rely on third parties. However, in special cases, we do offer maintenance.
