Things to consider when developing a website:
Click here to find out.

Is your site being authored by hand, or simply generated by software? What's the difference? Many web designers know little or nothing about the basics of page design, - the fact that browsers only look at code and have to interpret it into visible pages. Each browser will do this a little differently. At Cassiopeia Web Designs, we author every site we develop - that is to say that we hand-code the html elements in order to maximize the effectiveness of the site. This improves the speed and accuracy in which pages display and how well they will rank in the search engines when someone conducts a search for your product or service.

Are graphics being optimized for best format and smallest file size? Does your web designer know when to use a "gif" image and when to use a "jpg"? Will your text load before the images do for people with slower connections? Having unnecessarily large image files result in higher bandwidth fees at the end of the month. At Cassiopeia Web Designs we know how to optimize graphics and Flash elements in order to keep the site as fast and streamlined as possible, saving you bandwidth and saving your visitors time.

Thinking of having an existing site re-designed for a new look? We can do that. We can also create an entire site in Flash, or just add some Flash elements to parts of your site. Our animated top graphic on this site was created in Flash and includes our active navigation system. Unlike some sites with slow-loading Flash intro screens, we develop Flash that will load as quickly as a simple graphic file, yet provides animation and interactivity.

How does the whole process work?
First, you contact us. You may call us at 1.905.828.9096, use our online form, or email us at

If you are contacting us from the area, we will answer questions and set up an appointment to meet in person and discuss your requirements. At the meeting you will be educated on the benefits of advertising your company's products or services on the web. We also explain the process of creating a web site so the customer has a good understanding of the steps that are taken to develop the project. We ask questions about your business to determine what your needs are. After we have a good understanding of your requirements, we will send you a quote via email. After reviewing and accepting our quote, a contract will be drawn up. This will be brought to you for your approval and signature, with the receipt of a deposit check*. If any changes need to be made to the contract, we will modify it to fit your project requirements. Once this is done, you send us the signed contract and the deposit, as well as any images and/or text required to begin. Services will begin when the deposit check is received.

If you are contacting us through our online form for a quote, or more information, we will get in touch with you as soon as possible. We will answer your questions, and ask you about your business so we can get a better sense of what you need. Once we have an understanding of what you will require for your site, we will be able to create a quote and send it to you via email. After reviewing and accepting the quote, a contract will be drawn up. This will be sent to you for your approval and signature. Once the contract is signed we will require a deposit check.* If any changes need to be made to the contract, just tell us and we will modify it to fit your project requirements. Once this is completed, you return to us the signed contract with the deposit, as well as any images and/or text required to begin.

Our standard business terms are:  a 35% deposit to initiate project, 40% milestone payment, and 25% completion payment. * Prices for other services can be viewed by clicking here.

Our standard turnaround for websites is 60 business days. In most cases, we post all material to a test area on our servers and use email to collaborate on graphics, templates, content, etc. Any minor changes required are done free for up to six months after the website is completed. Any other changes are billed at $60 per hour, and are considered part of web maintenance.

Steps to creating the site

First we register a domain name and set up Web hosting for your Web site. We include a FREE Email account (POP mail with the same domain name) with Webmail access (you can read and send mail from any public terminal or Web browser). Then we design your new Web site, edit and organize your information, create a logical navigation for it, and wrap it in a beautiful design. Most important of all, we market your new Web site online - so people can find you! This is the real power of the Web for your business. Once your new site is on the Web, we can help keep your site looking fresh, add new pages, update informaiton, remove dead links, etc. Whether you need weekly updates or an annual checkup, we maintain your Web site at very reasonable rates.
