SITE DESIGN PROCESS
The website design process involves the initial setup of a "Homepage", which serves as a template for how the rest of the site will appear. Once the Homepage design is approved by The client, the rest of the site is developed to reflect the various pages that the site consists of. After approval, request for changes to the primary Homepage design may incur additional charges. (PC-NetworkX charges a flat rate for website design, but once the site design is approved and the customer wants to change it this may incur additional charges).
