How Long Does It Take to Build a Website?

Our more basic sites are usually ready for final testing and launch within 4 to 6 weeks.  We've completed complex projects with ease in under 3 months as a standard rule.  Learn more about the process that helps us complete sites 2 to 3 times faster than the industry by being more efficient.

Do You Outsource?

We never outsource custom programming. This is how we can be sure we meet our deadlines and our strict level of quality control goals. 

One of our lead graphic designer is technically freelance, but has worked with us for 14 years.

We do sometimes outsource template coding if we have an overflow of work, but this is less critical to timelines and is easily handled by our staff if deadlines look shaky with the outsourced resource. 

How Long Have You Been In Business?

Hannush Enterprises, LLC (dba Hannush Web) began operations in August of 2003 in Greer, SC. 

How Much Does a Website Cost?

Each job will have it's own unique pricing. However, we can design a custom template from scratch, give you a content management system and training, and create a 3-4 page website with Secure Managed Hosting for around $5000. More complex sites will require a more detailed quote, but we can easily provide one with just a few questions answered or a quick phone call to discover your needs.

What Are the On-going Costs for a Website?

Three cost considerations are hosting, maintenance contracts, and periodic updates of the content management system. 

We have two levels of hosting. Our recommended Secure Managed Hosting is $600 per year (this can be billed quarterly) and Basic Managed Hosting is $300 per year. 

For maintenance clients, we integrate the hosting costs into our maintenance contracts for one easy monthly fee. These start at around $225 per month and this rate fits 90% of our maintenance clients.

With any software, sometimes there are upgrade costs although we haven't had a major upgrade to our content management system (CMS) for many years. We roll the security updates of the CMS into the hosting charge.

Do You Work With Clients Outside of the Carolinas?

Absolutely. We have clients as far away as California, Michigan, Illinois, Mississippi, Florida, etc. Technology makes doing business online much easier and client meetings can occur with free Hannush Web provided tools like GoToMeeting.

However, Drew has met with most of our clients at some point, even the one's at a distance. It's the way he likes to do business, the old fashioned way...with a handshake.

Do You Subcontract For Outside Firms?

Yes. We provide a discount to those firms so they can sell our services at a comparable rate. We appreciate them entrusting us with their client's experience. And we can add the powerful tool of custom development into to their toolbox.

Do You Offer Maintenance Contracts?

Yes. We call our maintenance contracts Worry-Free Maintenance.  We want you to focus on what you're good at...running your business.  We like working as a trusted, reliable partner that acts as your company's web department.  And a maintenance contract not only costs less than hiring someone, it also gives your business increased skills and experience.

Can I Manage My Own Website?

Yes. We train you on our content management system. It takes about 2 hours and most clients manage their entire website without needing a lot of support.  

Why Would I Choose Hannush Web Over Other Firms?

There are a lot of companies that build websites. If you are just starting out and don't have a lot of budget, we might not be the right choice. But if you're ready to build the site of your dreams, here are some of the advantages we bring:

  • Our response times are much quicker than the industry standard.
  • We build sites from the ground up, not from templates.
  • Our sites are very easy to manage, even the complex ones.
  • We are very proactive on security and hacker prevention.
  • We are big on the handshake and building relationships with our clients. 
  • We deliver websites on-time and on-budget
  • Communication is big with us. You will know where your project stands at all times.
  • We are local and easily accessible.
  • Drew has over 20+ years web design experience and creative programmers in-house.
What API's Have You Integrated With?

API's give us the ability to reduce your workload and work with your existing data. These are just a few of the API's we've worked with. Many have been brought to us by clients asking if we could program for them. If you have a specific API you want to know if you can have integrated into your site, just ask. As long as it has adequate documentation, we should be able to program for it.
