Ans: For the simple web design, the basic elements include pages for “Home”, “About Us” (company profile), “Products” (or services), and “Contact”.
If you would like to add more contents, you may consider to add extra pages such as “What’s new”, “Factory”, “Certification”, “Recommendation”,”Our Clients”, “Resources”, etc. If you have different key products, you may consider to list them on different pages to target the different keywords for search engines and different customers.

It is better to build different pages for different product categories.

Additional Options & Features
Q15. What is web hosting?
Ans: Web hosting is basically the hiring of “web space” on a web server where your website resides. This web space includes a certain amount of disk space (for your website, it's images, files, and emails, etc.) and bandwidth (the amount of data per month that your website uses sending and receiving information to and from internet users. The maximum storage limit varies for different web hosting plans. You should select the plan according to your business requirements.
Q16. Do I have to host with you?
Ans: No. The web design package may be offered as a stand alone product separated from our web hosting service. For HTML web design, we may provide you the source codes of the webpages when the web design is completed and fully paid. Then you may upload the webpages on to your own host. For CMS web design, we may set up the CMS software on your own host and start the CMS web design project. Of course, you should make sure your own host should meet all the web requirements of the CMS software and your web design project.
Q17. What is the advantages to host with you?
Ans: It is inexpensive with fast loading speed. It is important that we only offer the web hosting service to our web design customers. Hence, we are at a better position to prevent the site accidently banned from search engines due to inappropriate contents and/or black hat SEO techniques used by other web sites hosted in the same web server.
Q18. Can I change to another host latter?
Ans: You of course can change to another web host at any time. What you need to do is to send us a written 30 day notice via email or mail prior to the change. However, all the prepaid fees will not be refunded unless it is proven to be our incapability to provide web hosting service.
Q19. What is a domain name?
Ans: A domain name is the identification or address of a website. For example, www.abcwebdesign.com is the domain name. Domain names can end with .com, .net, .info, .org, or be suffixed with various countries, e.g. .com.hk, etc.
Q20. What domain name should I choose?
Ans: It mainly depends on how you are going to use it. Your domain name should be memorable and reflect the name or nature of your business. If you are going to be telling people over the phone, choose one that is easy to say and spell out loud. The domain name is important for search engine recognition. For example, if your company is “ABC Garment Ltd” and your main product is T-shirts, it is better for you to get a domain name like ABC-t-shirts.com than ABCgarment.com because your protential buyers may use “T-shirts” as the keyword to search. You must register a domain name before your website can be published online.
Q21. How do I get a domain name?
Ans: For domain registration, we can obtain your domain name for you.
Q22. How do I get listed in other search engines and directories?
Ans: One of our additional options is search engine submission. If you choose this service, we will submit your site listing to search engines and directories. This will increase the speed in which your site is indexed by these search engines and allow you to begin driving traffic to your website quicker. Please note that the listing can take between one and four weeks and is subject to the rules and regulations of the specific search engine.
Q23. How do I get more traffic from search engines?
Ans: Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is also called as Search Engine Positioning (or Natual SEO). Its ultimate goal is to attract more potential customers to visit your website. Search Engine Optimization is not simply adding META tags and submitting website to search engines and link directories. To improve search engine positions and business results, it requires careful study of your company, products, services, website and competitors, keyword research & planning, optimization of the site content and its structure using proper website optimization techniques, website submission to search engines and directories, as well as effective link building through sophisticated SEO techniques and other search engine marketing strategy. For Chinese websites, you may consider Chinese translation and Chinese SEO.
SEO takes time and is a long-term strategy. However, it can yield good results for free traffic over the long term. If you want to boost your traffic quickly, it would suggest checking out Google AdWords or other paid-per-click advertisement options.
