FAQ

Do you create websites for free?
How is this possible?

Yes, we do! WAcademy is a leading school for advanced web designers seeking to excel in their field and secure work placements beyond graduation. 

We help them gain real-world experience and build a portfolio by accepting applications for free websites from business owners like yourself. You get a free website and the student gets more experience! 

Quality control is guaranteed by dedicated project managers and the student’s professors. We’re also sponsored by Getspace, who provide us with the latest tools and next-generation testing environment to ensure your website is perfect.

Creating a fantastic, free website with WAcademy is easy. We just need to receive the following before we can begin:

  • Website structure (an outline of the pages you need, site menu etc.)
  • Copy (text content)
  • Any media you want us to use (logos, pictures, videos etc.)
  • Features (Google maps, contact forms etc.)

Don’t worry if you do not have any of these starting requirements yet — your dedicated project manager will help you get prepared.

That’s completely fine. We can help you select media from various free sources such as unsplash.com — a free directory of beautiful pictures fit for commercial use.

Every website or online store needs a domain name, hosting service and security (usually provided together with hosting). 

We do not provide this for you so you will need to cover it. Our partners Getspace offers premium hosting services —  (it’s great value at less than £30 per month). They have top-quality servers that guarantee fast loading times, as well as leading security standards.

Yes, you can use a pre-existing domain or purchase one from any supplier.

We guarantee that your first draft will be created and shared with you within 20-30 business days. To help speed up development, your dedicated project manager will work with you to ensure you first provide all the required resources.

Before development begins, we hold a briefing during which you outline your vision for the website. This provides you with the opportunity to let us know exactly what it is that you need.

Then, once we present a draft of the website, you have one round of feedback to ask for all adjustments and improvements. The process is also overseen by a dedicated project manager who guarantees quality control. Ultimately, you can be confident that you will be very happy with your WAcademy website design.

Of course! You retain 100% ownership of the website, which is yours for free as per Wacademy’s leading offering. All you need to do is cover the essential running costs (with hosting costing less than £30 per month).

Yes, for an extra fee. You can also purchase a web administration service that allows you to send us a task list every month so we can provide ongoing website management. It’s only £50 per month for us to look after, manage and change content on your website — or you can do it all yourself using Elementor user-friendly system installed on your website. 

No, we host your online store on WooCommerce — there are no transaction fees and 100% of your proceeds go to you.
