Web Design Charleston WV
Having a website and an online presence are so very important for today’s businesses. Gone are the days of picking up the phone book and looking in the yellow pages to find a company. This is just one reason why having a website is so important, but it’s more than that. The website needs to look professional and provide the customer with the answer to their needs.
With the increase in mobile phones and tablets, it’s not enough to just build a website for desktop computers, but having two sites doesn’t work as well for SEO and many people dislike the reduced options and information on sites built for mobile. This option also doesn’t take into consideration tablets, which are smaller than laptops, yet significantly larger than smartphones. The best solution is responsive design.

What is a Responsive Website?
Responsive design involves building just one website that scales to the size of the device being used, whether desktop, laptop, tablet, or smartphone. Responsive sites are often even easier to read on smaller devices than sites built specifically for mobile.
Are you viewing this page on a desktop or laptop computer? If so, you can see responsive design in action. Simply reduce the size of your browser screen by dragging in from the side. As you drag, Delphinium’s website scales down to fit the screen.
Mobile-friendly websites are seen favorably by Google, which means that all other things equal, a website with a responsive design is going rank higher in Google Search than a website that has two different websites or one that was built for desktops.
Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
In addition to being responsive, all websites built by Delphinium are fully optimized for search to get you the best possible rankings. Abiding by the best practices when it comes to SEO in what’s called White Hat SEO keeps your site from getting penalized by Google for manipulating the rankings on the Search Engine Results Page (SERP). SEO is an important part of website marketing.
Contact Delphinium today to get on the path to success with a new and responsive website.
Finding web hosting on your own can seem intimidating to many people and others just don’t want to be bothered with it. Any website built by Delphinium is eligible to have their website hosted by Delphinium for a few dollars a month.
Monthly Installment Plan FAQ
How does the Monthly Payment Plan work?
You pay a 10% deposit on the total for your first month and before work begins on your account, then the remainder is broken up into 11 monthly payments. This offer is only valid on websites hosted by Delphinium. So for a basic responsive design website without anything else added and a monthly web hosting plan with a new domain and privacy, you would pay approx. $52 down for your first month. After the first month, your payments would be approx. $40 + sales tax for WV residents. After your website is paid off, you’ll only owe a small monthly hosting fee that can be paid monthly or yearly.
What is Web Hosting?
Web hosting is the activity of providing technology and storage space for a website to be viewed online. Expeditions charges $7.99/month (plus tax for WV residents) which includes unlimited email accounts, website backups, monitoring, and updates. There is also an additional yearly charge for your domain name of approx. 10.99* and an optional charge of 12.99 to have domain privacy to prevent spam and unwanted solicitations.
*Most website addresses (domain names) are $10.99 to purchase, but some can cost $100’s or even $1000’s of dollars.
What if I want to add additional services to my account?
It depends on the service. If it is a monthly service, such as AdWords, SEO, or a monthly blog, you would pay that monthly. Less frequent services, such as graphic design work, a one-time charge for online directory listings, etc can be added to your balance to be paid off at the same time as your website or paid in 12 monthly installments.
Can I take advantage of the Monthly Payment Plan if I use a different Web Hosting Provider?
Only if you are an existing client of Expeditions with a good payment record. New clients using a different Web Host have the option of paying in 3 installments – 1/3 at the start of the project, 1/3 before final edits are made, and 1/3 at completion of project.
How do I pay?
Invoices can be paid through PayPal with your bank account/credit card or you can drop a check in the mail. For monthly payments of the same amount, you can choose to pay by PayPal or have your bank pay it from your account monthly. Local clients also have the option of paying in person with cash or check.
