Why have a website?
There are many reasons for having a website. Firstly, it is one
of the quickest ways for people to find information about a company
or product without having to actually speak to someone. Imagine
people being able to access information about the products and
services your company offers but rather than just 9:00am Ė 5:30pm
they can all the time 7 days a week 365 days a year. Thatís what
the Internet can give you.
A website allows you to promote yourself to a larger audience
than you could traditionally target. It will allow you to display
more of your products and services to current and potential clients
than you would normally be able to reach through print.
It will allow you to maintain your brochure online and display
your goods and services in a live and interactive medium. This
has the advantage over a printed brochure because your website
will be cheaper to maintain and is updateable, which is useful
for promotions and special offers. Your printed adverts can be
referenced to your website address where special offers or deals
can be viewed in greater detail.
What kind of websites can we create for you?
We create websites either from scratch (bespoke design) or by
using a pre-made design of your choice to meet your requirements
and budget. There is a large and varied range, which can be tailored
to your own specification. Please Click here to view all our designs
To customise or create bespoke designs, we currently use programs
such as the Macromedia MX Studio, which comprises of Dreamweaver,
MX for HTML sites, Flash MX, for Flash based interactive sites
and Firework MX, for menuís and other navigational objects to
create our websites mixed with those Adobe Photoshop 7 for other
graphical needs. This gives us the cutting edge of technology
and software to create pretty much anything you or your company
desires, whether thatís animations, scrolling text, interactive
navigation systems or just a simple static HTML website.
We also have a great database developer capable of creating any
database solution needed whether its website or system based.
How much will my website cost?
The cost of a website varies depending on your needs. Generally,
other website companies charge on a per page basis with discounted
rates if a high number of pages are needed but we believe that
this can be unfair and not the way forward. We price all our websites
individually on customer wants and needs. This is beneficial to
you because we will not add on extra pages that wonít necessarily
add to the impact you are looking for. We also have a policy in
place, that if you find a cheaper quote anywhere else we will
do our best to match it, providing you send us a copy of the quote
outlining what work is included. We aim to match these wherever
possible because your business is important to us. We also provide
Flash movies or banner advertisements but these are usually quoted
at an additional cost unless otherwise stated. If you already
have a site and want to give it a new look we price this at an
hourly rate. This is because all the text and images are in a
computerised format and can be easily manipulated into your new
Included within the cost of a new website:
Additional items can be added to your site but at extra cost
for these please contact us.
* We can prepare your material and source your pictures for your
website from your brochure or other printed material but this
is charged at an additional rate.

if required or why not save the bother and let us update it for
We have various solutions on offer from a simple cost effective
package using Paypal to a custom built package made for your needs.
How can I keep the website up to date?
Keeping your website up to date is almost as important as having
a website on the Internet. If people visit your site for the first
time and then visit it again a few months later and the information
is exactly the same the chances are your information or products
will be out of date. This will prove frustrating and they may
choose a competitor instead. This is why it is important to update
your site as often as you can. Even if its only your main home
page once every few months.
DCS provide a variety of solutions for updating your website
ranging from us doing it for you or we can provide a web based
option where updating your site is as easy as sending an email
or writing a letter on a word processing program such as Microsoft
What Happens if i want DCS to design my website?
If you like what you have read so far the next step is to contact
us to discuss in detail the requirements for your site. We will
then collate all the information and produce an in depth quote.
It is then for you to confirm your needs have been met and once
you have signed and returned the contract and payment we will
begin construction of your site.
