Purchasing Domain Names with PixelPals
Yes. We will find a perfect domain name for you and register it to yourself or your company. We will add this to your invoice and re-invoice you every time the domain name expires (usually every 2 years but you can lease the domain name for your chosen number of years)
Purchasing Hosting with PixelPals
Yes. We can supply you with a hosting account which provides you with your own small section of a powerful web server to store your website. We use a specialist 3rd party company to provide the server space. We have used the same company for 10 years and will continue to do so as their professionalism to the industry is second to none. Unlike other popular hosting companies, our servers very rarely ever go down meaning you are always open for business.
PicelPals Web Design Timescale
We generally asskgn 2 weeks of our calendar to a project. However this can alter if the requirements are much bigger. For example, some projects include graphic design or photography before the design of the website can be constructed.
At your request we can make amendments to the timescale if you need your website quickly or by a set date.
We will arrange the timescale with you when you take on any of our services.
PixelPals Copyright Policy

Put simply, we charge our clients for our time and not for the materials we produce, you get to use those for free. Any graphics or themes we produce for the overall design of your website remain the property of PixelPals or its subsequent partners under the copyright law. However, we do give you specific rights to use the images.
If you wish to purchase full ownership rights please request this when obtaining a quote or before work commences. Graphics and files will be supplied to you through a password protected directory on you website and stored as hard copy on a CD ROM
