Existing Site Editing, Updating & Development

Site Upgrades...

Websites will usually go out of date every few years, yes, that's right! They have an expiry date! Web design is a little like fashion, it doesn't take long before that new outfit starts to look like a safari suit.

With more and more users and potential customers using the web for purchasing products and finding desired businesses it is even more important to present your organisation or company with a lively new professional look.

Upgrade Pricing...

Site upgrades are usually classed as a totally new web site as most clients don't want their existing web site look. Upgrades are generally less expensive because the client knows what to expect from their site and what information to prepare for their designer.

Minor Edits To Existing Sites Created By D.P. Web Design...

After your site is completed and your invoice has been finalised, D.P. Web Design offers a 21 day post development editing policy for text changing, spelling error corrections and minor image changes all FREE of charge (This does not include major structure changes like design & navigation).

After this time expires, any updates to your site will be charged out at $110 p/h (GST inc), if a job takes 22 minutes to complete then you will be charged for that 22 minutes and not the full hour. All updates or any work requested will have a 15 minute minimum time limit.

You can also take advantage of one of our Support Packages offering big savings.

Support Packages

D.P. Web Design offers Priority Support Packages that ensure maintenance of your site is our priority. We have found that our clients can request on average 5 hours of site modifications, support and help calls throughout the year, and even hold off on making changes because of cost concerns. Let us make it easier and more cost-effective for you by presenting one of these support packages, as they offer a reduction in hourly rate charges.

The benefits include:

  • Problems solved quickly
  • Significant cost savings - particularly for larger websites
  • Minor issues are fixed quickly and easily
  • Minor changes made within 24 hours
  • Packages only charged for the actual time worked (no 15 minute minimum charge)

Every website needs maintenance from time to time to do the job as your online salesperson, so save money and keep your website up-to-date with the Priority Support Package that is best for you.

  • Site template upgrades
  • Joomla version upgrades (1.5 or 2.5 to latest)

The key benefits to undertaking an upgrade for your Joomla 1.5 or 2.5 sites are:

  • A significantly improved responsive layout across all devices (mobiles, tablets & PC’s) and platforms
  • Increased security features – this is more important than it appears on the surface, and is one of the main drivers behind any upgrade
  • The existing Joomla version 1.5 is now discontinued so future updates or enhancements will require specialised programming, therefore costing more $$$ to update content
  • New visual template – your website will get a refreshed look to keep up with the trends of website development
The time frame of the support package is for one (1) year from purchase date or until the allotted hours run out. Packages do NOT automatically renew yearly.

Minor Edits To Existing Sites Created By Other Developers...

This is an hourly rate of $110 p/h (GST inc.). Pricing on minor site edits will be determined by the developer on discussion with you the client on your website needs.
