Some important questions to ask the design agency are:

Do I own the website once it is finished and paid for?

7- Plan A Launch Date:

Having a website launch date set for yourself is a way to keep you and your web designer focused. Without a date deadlines can be pushed leaving you floating on a testing server. Our goal as web designers, logo designers and even an SEO company is to get your live on the internet. Dates can be pushed back a little bit if a website is not 100% ready. In this case plan on a second launch date.
