Website Requirements

To build your website, we will need an extensive list of content, elements and information from you. Take a little time and systematically work through all the required items and return them to us as soon as possible, so we can deliver your site to you.

We have broken the content down into sections corresponding to the website layout.

Once you have gathered all the required elements, you will need to send them all to us.

Please read through this document and forward all the required elements as quickly as possible.

Failure to forward us all the elements in a timeous fashion, will impact the speed at which we can deliver the website to you.

A .com domain is preferred as it is as a top-level domain, and is generally easier to rank in search engine search results, once you start applying SEO techniques to your website.

Finding a domain name of your choice can take a bit of time.

Use this tool to check whether the domain of your choice is available.

Once you have found the domain of your choice, drop us a mail at, and we will register it for you.

Note: As soon as we register your domain name, it will be assigned to a website hosting account. The 12 months hosting included in your website package, thus becomes active on the day that we register your domain name and expires 365 days later.
