Questions and Answers

We’re happy to help set these up. Let us know if you have any questions.
Do I own the website?
Yes. The website is owned by you and hosted on your web hosting account. This means you’ll have complete access and total control over the website.
What about maintenance, updates, and support?
The theme is designed to be easy to use, expand, and maintain, so you can take ownership over your site without technical knowledge of coding.
We’ve built in functionality to give you power and flexibility in adjusting the design and adding content. We also provide training before launch.
Above the initial setup hours, we bill for maintenance, content updates, and support on retainer plus an hourly fee. Contact us for more information: firstname.lastname@example.org
What are the benefits of WordPress over Squarespace, Wix, Weebly, etc?
WordPress is the world’s most popular publishing system, powering sites ranging in scope from enterprise to micro. More than 75 million websites use WordPress, while Squarespace, Wix, and Weebly account for less than 1 million sites each.
This popularity nurtures a robust ecosystem of plugins and resources to help expand and customize your website. Because it will be updated continuously for security and feature updates, it is a solid choice as a platform for your web presence.
Because WordPress can be deployed at the web host of your choice, you have total control and ownership over the website and its files. WordPress is not a hosted service like Squarespace, Wix, or Weebly, so the work invested in your website will not be lost if that company goes out of business.
What browsers and devices are supported?
Modern browsers including: Chrome, Edge, Firefox, and Safari.
Rebuilding a website can be scary, but working with Vin was anything but that. The team provides a great balance of technical expertise, outstanding customer service, guidance and responsiveness. They were two steps ahead of us through this complex process. Add to that their intimate knowledge of the industry and what works well to bring our story to the web experience. We weren’t quite sure how we wanted the new site to look, but Vin guided us through new design and functionalities that I thought really made sense. They took the time to show us how to use our shiny new toy and really made sure there were no loose ends when we wrapped up. Being a small family winery on a budget, Vin really delivered an outstanding product at a fair price. I would recommend Vin to any winery or craft beverage producer who needs to get their site right for today’s digital experience.

We have been working with Vin for many years and I am so happy that we decided to go with the Website Builder when it was time to do a full update on our 10-year-old website. I love that you have the ability to customize the Builder while still working within the parameters of the platform. The team at Vin is so easy to work with and does such a great job of making your website unique.
— Katy Wilson, Owner & Winemaker at LaRue Wines
We appreciate the simplified navigation through the backend of our website for users, like us, who don’t know coding and are intimidated by it. We can keep our customers updated on what is going through their allocation pages easily. The design is straightforward to update photos, tasting notes and verbiage throughout our website. Thank you for your partnership!
