Answers to Common Questions
Especially if you are new to web development and never had a website, things migh sound “Greek” to you. Here we try to answer the most common questions our client have been asking.
In order to operate a law firm website (and any website) you need a domain name, a hosting account and the website itself. There are companies that only sell domain names; some are offering hosting accounts only, some that offer web design only. AWebsiteForLawyers.com offers everything in one hand. We even help you to find the right domain name and register it for you in your name.
We will be happy to do that for you. Be aware that having a hosting account with us includes a free domain, traffic stats, search engine monitoring, malware scanning, uptime monitoring, name registration and free email set up.
What if I am not happy with your work?
It rarely happens, but it does. Design is a matter of taste, and we might not match yours or your way of working. In case that in the middle of the project it becomes obvious that we are not the perfect match for each other, our terms give both of us the option to terminate the contract. Depending on the progress of the project, you will receive a refund of up to 50% of your fees paid to date.
Do I own my domain name once I register it with you?
If you register with us, you own your domain name.
Recurring costs for website packages are yearly hosting fees $220.
Some additional services like immigration news or pay-per-click management are offered as a subscription.
Not if you don’t want to. Consider then design suggestions, or starting points. We will change as much as you like -a new head image with your logo and slogan; adjust the navigation, change background colors and fonts. The result is a unique, appealing website.
The quality of a website is not only decided by the visual effect, but also by the clarity of presentation, ease of navigation, the quality and amount of content. Remember that search engines and customers have one thing in common: they love quality content.
Will I have to submit my law firm website to search engines?
We submit your law firm website to more than 100 search engines for no extra charge.
Do you provide content?
We provide basic content with standard texts. For specialized legal content like immigration, bankruptcy, estate planning or family law, copyrighted texts are available for a package price.
Will I be able to add pages later?
Absolutely. You can add pages or features like online payment or multilingual whenever you want.
It depends. In order to create or update a standard HTML website a special web publishing program is required. The modern WordPress based sites can be updated by you, we provide a one-on-one introduction.
With our Call Google system your site usually shows on Google within a week.
The easiest way for a new website is utilizing Google’s pay-per-click service (also called Google Ads). It will give you 1st page ranking instantly for a price of about $5-25 per visitor clicking on your ad. Getting to page one of Google’s regular listing requires far more.

I want to upgrade from Office Live. Can you help me?
Migrating from Office Live can be challenging. We take the challenge for you. Note that the domain transfer from Office Live might take longer than usual, since Office Live is only acting as a reseller for an Australian Company.
