First, of course, you’ll need a site design and the usual functional elements of a website, such as a contact form. For standard eCommerce functionality, you will need several additional components: an SSL (Secure Socket Layer) certificate, a merchant account, a payment gateway, a back-end database for processing orders and storing customer information, and a shopping cart solution. Monarch Web Design Group can help you with all of these items.

Can I See My Website While It’s In Progress?kyra_mv_adm2016-01-02T15:15:06-05:00
Absolutely! In fact, we encourage it. We build your website on live server, and provide you with a username and password so that you can log in and monitor the progress of your site. During this phase, we encourage your feedback if something isn’t quite the way you envisioned it or if you’ve changed your mind. Once your site is ready and you have provided your approval, we release it live on your server and submit your URL to the major search engines.

Which hosting company do you prefer ?kyra_mv_adm2016-01-02T15:07:59-05:00

YES! Everything that we build will be 100% owned by you. Most of our clients stay with us for the life of the website. Our team is just irresistible that way.

The website is yours after all, and we want you to take it wherever you go.
