Frequently Asked Questions
for Hotel Websites
Why does my hotel need a website?
At this point in time, the necessity of having a website is probably pretty clearly understood by most business owners, especially in the healthcare industry.
Plain and simply put, the internet is the strongest and most efficient medium currently available for a small business, organization, cause, or other entity to reach direct customers, supporters, and fans of your idea, product or service.
The internet allows you as a business to grow from the ground up, from the cultivation of local support to the ability to reach customers across the globe with an accurate depiction of why they should use your business to fulfill their needs.
In the past hotels used the Yellow Pages, travel guides and partnerships to grow a hotel. In today’s world, a website is a must for any resort to connect to potential, existing and current guests.
How long does it take to design a hotel website?
The time that it takes to build a web presence for your business is dependent on the scale and scope of your online goals and objectives.
The average time for the development of a 5-10 page web presence ranges from 6-8 weeks from project initiation.
If a project features a basic design, modest features and little to no SEO or Online Marketing, it will take considerably less time to develop than a project with 50 pages, custom e-commerce functionality and advanced SEO & Marketing campaigns.
All of our hotel web design projects are developed under completely custom design proposals. Let us customize an online plan to exceed your online expectations today.
What's a domain name? Why do I need one?
A website’s domain name is its unique web location. Sort of like your website’s address.
The domain is usually “yourbusiness.com” but could be anything imaginable that is not already owned by another user on the net.
In order to have your website code active online so you can have visitors to your website, you must purchase a domain address.
The domain gives you access to place your information at the specified address so that internet users can view your web presence.
Domain names are fairly cheap but must be renewed annually to keep your site live at its specific address.
What about hosting? Is it necessary for me to have?
Yes, hosting is imperative for any website.
Hosting stores your website information on a server that is set up to transmit and hold information for web pages on the internet.
In very simple terms it is the rent that you as a website must pay the internet for the space that your site holds.
Without hosting, your website would be a collection of source code without anything to connect to.
At Not Fade Away, we provide Hosting Services for our clients or are happy to help our clients work with a number of hosting partners.
Not Fade Away can help with your hosting or we will happily give you the code for your website that you can use elsewhere.
What's so special about Social Networking?
In recent years social networking (sites like Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter) have sparked a social revolution of inter-connectedness.
For small businesses, these sites provide a unique opportunity to reach a broad segment of your possible customers.
The other great feature of social networking is that in today’s day and age interconnecting different social networking accounts can help you efficiently take advantage of a wide variety of small business expansion options.
Social Networking also works great with a Blog to bolster and distribute your content to your fans, friends and followers.
Hooking into social networking with your small business website is easy, just contact Not Fade Away Marketing today!
Who creates the content for a hotel website design project?

- Level of design – Custom vs. Templated

- Content – Provided by the firm or created for you?
