Site Palette FAQ

Q:  What is Site Palette?

A:  Site Palette is a system that enables the non technical person to build, monitor and maintain a powerful website! Site Palette's framework allows for quick integration of Site Palette Modules like the Site Palette Ecommerce System, Slide Shows, Card Customizer, Apparel Quoter, Real Estate Listing System and others.

Q:  Do I need technical skills to use Site Palette?

A:  No, we put the power to build, monitor and maintain websites in the hands of the general population. If you can use a word processor like Microsoft Word you will find our Website Editor just as easy.

Q:  What's included with Site Palette?

A:  Site Palette is a turnkey package of applications tied to a framework, creating a strong foundation for your website.  All that’s needed is design and content.  Think of it like a car without the body design; Site Palette is frame, engine, instruments, wheels, etc... fully functional and ready to go; all you need is add the body style, color and design elements.

Q:  How do I design my website with Site Palette?

A: Our system is flexible to work with both the experienced website designer with coding experience as well as designers who have no coding experience.

If you are website designer who knows CSS you can start with our basic template at the cost of $300. From there you can add CSS code and/or use our Website Editor (CMS) to upload designs and content.

If you are a designer with no coding knowledge then you can email us your website design (psd, jpg, png, gif, ai, etc...) and we will slice it, code it and integrate it into our Site Palette Website Framework System to create a fully functional website in 3-5 days! Next you can add pages and edit the website's content with our easy-to-use Website Editor.

Q:  What is a website template or website frame?

A:  Technically a website template or website frame is the part of the website that keeps the same look as a visitor goes from one page to the next.  We also refer to this as a master navigation template.  Sometimes a website template is used to refer to a website design that is sold multiple times to multiple people, but is usually not a functioning website.  Our pre-made design templates are fully functional websites. 

Q:  How long does it take to set up Site Palette?

A:  Our Template Websites are the quickest way to get a website up, usually in 3-5 days.   If you are having us create a custom designed website the design process can vary depending how much design work you require.   The basic design process takes about 2 weeks to complete, and once you approve the design it will take 3-5 days for us to integrate your design and setup Site Palette. If you are a designer it’s also 3-5 days from the time we receive your design.

Q:  Can I add as many pages as I want to the system?

A:  Yes, you can add as many pages as you want.  You’re only limited to the amount of hard drive space your plan allows.  An example would be, if you have an average of 2 images 100KB in size on each page you could have over 500 pages on our smallest bronze plan at $10 per month!  Your disk usage also depends on other factors like how large your website template design is or how many emails you store.

Q:  How much control do I have over the design of my website?

A:  If you are a non technical person you can design most of the website yourself using our easy-to-use website editor.  If you know Microsoft word or other word processors you can use our editor. 

If you know CSS then you have full control.  Think of it as a clean canvas with Site Palette as an important tool in helping you create your master piece.
