Frequently asked questions

About our free website initiative

On what platform does Ohkie build my free website?

WordPress. All free websites are built on WordPress. You can learn more about WordPress here.

Do we own the website once it's done being developed?

Yes and no. Technically you own it because we give you full access to the backend, allowing you to do practically anything you want. However, you cannot take it elsewhere to host.

How long does it take to build my free website?

We begin development after 2 weeks of signing up. This gives our account managers time to collect all the necessary content and to design a wireframe with you. After the two week prep period, we begin development. From there you are looking at about 2 weeks before you will receive your first draft. As a general rule, it should not take more than 1 month to receive your first draft, unless, you have a very elaborate website. Need it faster? We offer rush options! Check out our fine print and click on the “delivery” tab.

Do you continue to maintain the site after it's launched for free?

No. Only the initial build is free. Once you are happy and the site goes live, the “free” initiative stops. Then, you can hire developers to maintain your website moving forward. Our managed hosting only covers server-side maintenance.

Can I pay for the website and host it elsewhere?

Yes. You have the option to pay for the website in full and then move it to another host. Visit our development services page to see our full pricing for websites that are not hosted by us. Or for websites that are built outside of our free website initiative.

About our managed hosting

Do we have to use Ohkie developers when hosting with Ohkie?

No. We are first and foremost a hosting company. We allow server access to anyone who you give the green light on. We invite you to use our partner company for all your development needs, but do not force it, nor push it upon our clients in anyway.

Manged hosting plan discounts?

If you need more than one website or plan to have multiple servers with Ohkie, please contact your account manager or our sales department to discuss our bulk discount options.

Are there more managed hosting plans?

Of course. We specialize in hosting. Which means that if your needs are dynamic, we would love to create custom hosting solutions for you! The four basic plans are primarily for our free website initiative.
