How much do web pages cost?
Our services start at $90 per page for html websites. Most of our clients go with a 5-page design, hosted and maintained by us.

What is web hosting and do I need it?
Each site that is on the internet is hosted somewhere, simply what this means is that they have bought a server in which the files for the website reside, this is called a hosting company. Yes, you will need a hosting company. E.A. Lenger designs will host your website for a fee of $150.00/year. Or we will help you purchase your own. [More information]

What is a domain name and how do I get one?
Each site that is on the internet also has a unique URL or domain that is typed into the browser to point at the hosting files. For example, my domain is www.ealenger.com, you can also purchase other extensions such as .biz, .org., .net, and have them lead to the same website. You can purchase one from many places on the internet. However, if you host your site with E.A. Lenger Designs we will pay for your domain name. [More information]


Why do you work only with small businesses?
E. A. Lenger designs wants to give small businesses the chance that big businesses have. A chance to attract customers with a well designed and functional website. Many designers charge expensive rates no matter what size the business is, thus putting the little guy at the disadvantage. E.A. Lenger designs is committed to making it possible for every business to have a website.

Do you do search engine optimization?
Although it is impossible to guarantee your ranking on all search engines, E.A. Lenger designs will submit your site to major search engines for free as well as optimize your pages and meta data (the information some search engines look at) for free. We will also list your business with google maps for free if you wish to do so.

How long does it take to build a website?
If you choose one of our template designs and plain HTML we can have your site built and on the web approximately 2 weeks after you have provided all the information for the pages. If you choose to have a custom web page built the time frame will be dictated by the complexity of your design.

Can I start small and add more pages later?
Absolutely, your website can grow as your business grows.

How do I get my own email address, such as myname@mydomain.com?
E.A. Lenger designs will set up as many email addresses as you want with the @yourdomain.com extension. If you host your site through us these emails are free and unlimited. If you choose another hosting company there may be a limited amount of addresses you can use or a charge associated with these.

How do I get my content to you?
We prefer that all content be provided in digital format. The easiest way to do this is to send it via email. All text should be proofed and ready to be added to the page, if you need a copyrighter we can recommend one for you, although E.A. Lenger Designs does not do copyrighting. Any images or logos can also be emailed to us. If you are not comfortable with email we can arrange to pick up the information on a disk or it can be sent via the United States Postal Service.

Will I be able to view my site as it is being developed?
Yes, we provide a client login where you will be able to see your site as we build it. Your client section also contains all invoices and contract information for your convenience.

Where can I get more information?
We would be happy to sit down and give you any information that you need, just give us a call to set up a FREE consultation.


I already have a website but it needs to be updated. Can you help?
Of course! We will meet with you, discuss your needs and give you a custom estimate based on your needs.

I want to learn to update my own site, do you offer tutoring/teaching services?
Sure we do! Elizabeth Lenger taught "Introduction to Multimedia" at Bradley University for two semesters. She will meet with you to determine where your skill level is and what you want to learn. Then she will set up a class schedule. The base price is $55/hour of instruction per person.

Do you do any print design?
Yes! We do a limited amount of print design. For example, we will do brochures, letterhead, business cards etc to match your website. If you have a project in mind that we didn't list here, please email us and we would be glad to discuss the options with you.

What is a database driven site?
A database driven site is a website that holds all its content in a database.  This allows the website to pull only specific information, for example time sensitive material.  This also allows a user with no HTML knowledge to update their site via a web interface.  If you are interested in how a database site would work for your company please call me for a FREE consultation.

I am not sure if I need a website, how do I know?
E.A. Lenger Designs believes every business needs a website.  However, we let you make that decision for yourself.  We will explain how a website helps your specific business during your free consultation and then let you decide for yourself if you think you need one or not.  Please give us a call and we will gladly meet with you to help you understand everything involved in the decision of starting a website.
