Frequently Asked Questions
+ How long will it take for my web site to be completed?
The timescale of a website design project is often dictated by the client. If you
have a deadline in mind we will endeavour to meet it for you. The most common delay
in the creation and completion of a new website is waiting for content (text/images)
to be sent to us by the client.
+ Will we need to have a meeting in connection with the website design?
In the majority of cases a meeting isn't necessary and most of our websites are
generally completed with contact via email and telephone only. We place suggested
website designs onto the Internet in a private place where only yourselves and us
can view the content. We then liaise with you regularly to discuss the web designs
in order that the website design and functionality is exactly as you wish.
+ Once my website design is completed -what aftersales service do you offer?
We fully support any website we design and are always available should you encounter
any problems or require any enhancements. We offer web site maintenance so that
your website need never get out of date
+ In what format should I supply words and photographs about my business for website?
It is helpful to us if you are able to provide text and photographs in electronic
form - for example, the files output by a digital camera and the words in MS word
or similar format. If this is not possible, we can help get your information ready
for use on the website.
+ Will my website design be" Search Engine" friendly?
All our websites are created with search engines in mind and the website design
is compliant with search engine guidelines. It is a good idea for your website to
be re-evaluated in time as over a period of time the search engines do alter their
rules and algorithms and you will want to be certain that your website is kept up
to date and complies with new rules etc.
+ How do I update my website?
There are many different methods which can be used to update websites. The method
you choose and the functionality we build into your website design is solely up
to yourself although of course we will be glad to advise you which method will suit
If you have a small website consisting of just a few pages and will only wish to
make changes very infrequently, then usually it is more cost effective simply to
ask Qamar Media to carry out these changes for you. Other methods which are frequently
chosen are largely dependant upon how much data or information and pictures you
have and how you store this information at present.
We can provide an on line content management system where you can either update
individual products/pages/services or particular sections of your website. e.g.
Alternatively we can provide functionality such that you can upload your entire
product ranges to the website in one action using spreadsheets etc. We can also
add databases if you wish.
+ Can you provide all our web design and hosting services?
Yes - we are your one stop company to provide all your web services. No more - not
knowing who to call if you have problems - we can register your domain name - design
your website - provide your web hosting and arrange your email accounts for you.
+ Do you use Flash animation in your website design?
Yes we do use flash as and when required. It is important to note that there are
times when flash animations can be an asset but it would be unwise to use "flash"
to create an entire website or even entire pages of your website as search engines
are not able to read the content of flash and therefore any words used in animations
will not be indexed by the search engines.
Generally it is best to use flash for smaller banners, advertisements or demonstrations
and incorporate the flash animation into a web page which also includes some written
text in html. This way the search engines will be able to index your information
+ Can I get e-mail with my website?
Yes you can have email and you will probably wish you set-up several email addressed
e.g. email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com
+ How much will a website cost me?
The cost of a web site varies depending on the site and complexity. A small web
site with just a few static pages would cost around INR 5200/- whereas a full ecommerce
website with a large number of pages and a CMS system could cost any where between
INR 25000 and INR 40000. If you give us a call we will be please the discuss with
your website design requirements and give you a fixed quotation.
+ I already have a website and I need it updating, can you help me?
Yes, we would be happy to look at you existing website and give you a quote for
+ What if I do not like the design?
If you do not like the design which we have suggested for you, we will discuss further
with a view to ascertaining what type of design you would like to see and then place
another "suggested design" in your web area for you to view. We would not like to
think that you are not happy with the final website design. Our aim is to design
for you a website specific to your requirements which you are completely happy with.
+ What is CMYK??
Four Colour Process Printing', which is also known as 'Full Colour Printing', is
a widely used printing technique. The system uses four base colours - Cyan, Magenta,
Yellow and Black. By using combinations of these in various tints, it is possible
to produce virtually every colour imaginable! We can print spot colours as well
- please call us for prices.
+ I am after a bespoke job can you help?
We would love to! Email the specifications to firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on
+ What do you mean by digital printing?
Digital printing does not use conventional imaging plates for printing. Instead
the image is formed on an imaging drum and processed directly from the computer
image. Each digital image may vary from the preceding image as it is digitally created.
This is the true strength of the digital process. Digital printing is suited for
small volumes and variable data printing such as ID cards, serial numbers, direct
mail components etc. Digital printing can use laser technology, liquid toner inks,
inkjet processes, or a combination of several processes.
+ I require you to design my artwork, how long will it take for my proofs?
We normally allow 3 days to produce proofs. Our team of designers work hard to produce
creative artwork so proofs can sometimes take longer than this. If your printwork
is urgent please call the sales team on 022 6615 8984 before ordering to get an
current lead time on artwork.
