With most modern day Content Management Systems, maintaining your website is as simple as editing a Word document. As long as you have an internet connection and a modern web browser (we recommend Chrome, Firefox, or IE9 or newer), you can add or edit your site's content.
Since 2005, Dryfive has been building great sites for fantastic clients. Our mission with our new blog ... to showcase client projects, to offer tips and tricks on website maintenance and to discuss the web industry's goings-on.
Looking for a website that looks great, works across all platforms and is easy to maintain? We develop all projects with an easy-to-use content management system (CMS), a scalable platform that allows you to start with the basics and add extra functionality later.
We provide training on how to maintain your site once your project has been completed, saving you time and money!
Dryfive also offers print design and branding solutions that compliment your business or organization outside of the world wide web. From business cards and letterheads to posters and billboards, we can help!
Originally from Saskatchewan and now based in the beautiful city of Colwood (part of the Greater Victoria's West Shore region), Dryfive strives to offer the best in website design and customer service!
We firmly believe that service and support is paramount to both our client's success and our own. Fast, reliable service is something that we appreciate when doing business, and we know our clients do too.
Our goal is to develop and support unique projects, and we make sure we're there for every step in the process, from initial correspondence to well after a client's project has been launched. From start-ups to established businesses and organizations, Dryfive is here to help!
We review a client's requirements and develop a quote for the project.
Collect Required Content:
We collect and review content supplied by the client (textual content, existing site content, artwork, imagery and video).
Once all content is received, we implement the site's framework (content management system), look and feel, apply the appropriate navigation, organize and apply supplied site content and apply the project's specific functionality.
Review & Administration:
The project is opened to the client for review. We also review the CMS administration functionality with the client before taking the site live.
The project is moved to its live state and is now accessible to the public.
What's required to maintain my site?
You need access to a web browser (we recommend Chrome, Firefox, or Safari) and an Internet connection to use the administrative area of the CMS (content management system). No other software is required.
How long before my new site is up and running?
Timelines for completion differ from project to project. Our entry level CMS projects normally take 10-15 business days.
Do you require a deposit?
We require a 50% refundable deposit of the price agreed upon in the project's contract, payable by credit card or by cheque.
What other costs should I expect?
An annual fee for web hosting and domain registration/renewal from your host of choice (we recommend SiteGround hosting) is the minimum you should expect with regards to any ongoing expenses for your website.
