This can depend on many factors but the average build time from brief to going live is 4-6 weeks.
This can be quicker if you have all the assets required ready to go and may take longer should there be a delay in gaining all the information or in the case of major scope changes along the way.
- Gathering information / assets (eg: copy, images, videos etc) is the most common reason a website takes longer than it should. The more prepared you are with this information the quicker the build time.
- We have a comprehensive development questionnaire that will help you gather this information.
All websites built after January 2019 are built using the WordPress platform which us universally known as the best, most flexible platform available.
For very small sites we can look at alternate, simpler platforms but we prefer WordPress due to its extensive functionality and reliability.
Yes! Every site we build is mobile device friendly/responsive, meaning your website will look as good as it does on your desktop computer across all phones, tablets and mobile devices.
NOTE: Do not engage a web developer who does not offer this. With the use of mobile devices constantly rising combined with the importance Google place on websites being responsive, mobile responsiveness is key to your website’s success.
For a very basic website, prices can start from just $900. Due to the many variables involved, we quote on each site individually.
We take into consideration many factors including:
- Do you have an existing website?
- Is your new site a complete rebuild or a revamp of an existing site?
- What assets / material do you have ready to go eg: copy, images etc.?
- What style of website do you need eg: Essential. Enhanced, Ultra? See options here, WEB SERVICES.
- What is your time frame?
- What design style do you want to achieve?
The best thing to do is CONTACT US us for a quote tailored to suit your exact business goals & budget.
- We invoice 40% of the total fee upfront to commence the build.
- The 60% balance is invoiced on completion of the site.
- Payment terms are 7 days from invoice.
We understand small businesses and recognise that cash flow is often a hinderance in embarking on marketing projects like a new website.
We want you to succeed online, so if required, we can negotiate a payment plan where we invoice you a set amount per month over a set number of months.
We usually complete the build in less time but bill you over an agreed period.
To ensure optimum security and efficiency of your site, we highly recommend that your website is backed up and all plugins are updated at least monthly.
We can provide this service for you at $65 per month. This fee includes any minor tweaks you may wish to make to your site.
For more extensive work after completion of your site, we would quote on an as needed basis.
You are welcome to manage your own backups and updates. If this is the case, there are no ongoing fees.
TIP: A website should be integrated into your existing and long-term business goals and not considered a one-time marketing expense. Budget for the initial cost of website design and development, but also keep in mind that you may want to change or update your website just like you make changes and updates to your business direction. A website that isn’t maintained and updated doesn’t do much for your image.
Yes of course. If you require any ongoing support, we are here for you.

Your domain name is essentially your website’s online address and is the first step to getting your business online. So, yes you will need a domain name to create a website.
Your domain name is the address people type in to their browser to find your website eg: www.keewebsites.com.au typed in finds this website.
You can register many types of domain names including; .com, .com.au, .net.au, .org.au, .id.au, .eu, .co.uk, .asia, .nz. etc. Most businesses based in Australia will register a .com.au domain name but we can help you decide on what is best for you.
Domain names vary in price depending on who you register with and what your actual domain name is. An average price in Australia for a general name is around $40 for 2 years registration.
It’s also important to consider that a domain name will be available in many formats. It is advisable to reserve the top two or three formats to ensure that other businesses cannot purchase the same or a similar domain.
Following are a few examples that you may consider purchasing.
If some of the above domain types are not available when using your business name then it’s important to understand there may be other businesses that have the same or similar name to you. It is worth researching who they are so there is no confusion when it comes to people searching for your products or services.
NOTE: Keep in mind when you are purchasing a domain name:
- Is it easy to spell?
- Does it fit with your company product, service or name?
- If it’s a long name, will it show up well when used in printed advertising?
Recommended Domain Registrar:
