Frequently Asked Questions

Here are the answers to some of our more often-asked questions about Solace Development Group.

Do you have a question for us? Contact Us today or post your question on our forum and we would be happy to talk with you.

Do you guys do more than just websites?

Absolutely! While the majority of our work resides on the Internet, Solace has worked on in the past or is currently (as of this writing) working on software for Android-based smartphones, inventory tracking software, server management, radio communication network software, among other things. We also provide consulting for growing businesses to help them get the most out of their current IT systems and/or improve their systems with the best return. Head over to our Solace Solutions page to take a look at what we have to offer.

How long does it take to build a website?

The time from the time we start on a website until it is online depends greatly on the requirements of each project. No two projects are exactly alike and so no two timeframes are either. Our normal time for a basic website is around two weeks. If you think that is a long time for a basic website: consider that every website we produce goes through a quote compilation and contract negotiation period alogn with our visual design process, our basic search engine submission service, full multi-browser testing, and content verification with our customers. We don't just throw something together and ask for payment; we make sure you like what you're getting or we'll make changes.

What goes into the price of your websites?

Websites, like all things, take time, training, and experience to build correctly. At Solace Development Group, we have proven artists, interface designers, programmers, and managers with years of experience in basic website creation all the way through million-dollar annual income e-commerce sites.

We believe that we produce high-quality products. Even so, we have found that our prices are still far below those of other web development companies in the area. We challenge you to compare our prices, product quality, and package services with other web development companies. We think that you will agree with us.

Do you have your own data center?

The short answer is no, but the long answer is more complicated. We host all of our public websites, both yours and ours, from the industry-leading data centers at 1&1 Internet Inc. We chose this service so that your website has a reliable connection and stability with 1&1's 99.9% uptime and daily data backups. We at Solace Development Group do not have a centralized data center. We do, however, have an array of networked servers spread across the United States that provide our internal IT systems with necessary tools, storage and backup, testing platforms, and other applications. This network is growing steadily in both size and functionality so, even though it is not technically a data center, it is almost better.

I hear you do SEO. What does that mean and do I need it?

SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization. This means that we work with you to make a plan to put your website as high in search engine ranking as possible. This is absolutely necessary for businesses of all size and anyone who wants their website to attract visitors or customers.

Our SEO process includes analysis of your website and your current visitors and suggests strategies for improving your search engine ranking. These strategies may involve advertising with Google Adwords, keyword optimization, sitemapping, link exchanges with us and reputable social networking sites, small changes to your website (normally ones not visible to visitors), or other tactics. We also help you decide between cost-per-click advertising and other strategies.

Are you hiring?

We are always looking for people to work with us. We will post on this website when we are looking for a particular position, but we sometimes need an extra set of hands or a specialist in a particular area for a project.

That being said: please note that we're a bit different than many software companies. We like smart people, but we also like people who are passionate about a particular field, who have an idea where they want that field to go, and who are willing to work to make that happen. If that describes you, we'd like to talk to you.
