Questions Our Customers Ask Before Buying

What do you mean by 'Siternity', 'Website for Life' and 'Refreshing Technology'?

The name 'Siternity', ‘Sit-er-ni-ty’ - /siˈtərnitē/ derives from a mix of the words 'WebSite' and 'Eternity'. It comes from our goal of a 'Website for Life', a website CMS that keeps improving and getting better for you as technologies change, rather than growing old and out of date like all traditional website CMS's. It means massive website and content management system cost savings for you over time, a future-proofing of your web presence, and one less thing to worry about while you concentrate on your business.

Even our Webtrade logo was designed to look like the 'Refresh' button on a web browser - keeping in line with our web developers passion for giving you constantly refreshing content management technology.

How will Webtrade and Siternity CMS save me money compared to other designers?

Web designers generally make a huge proportion of their income by charging unnecessary maintenance time for simple ongoing website changes you should be able to make yourself through your content management system (CMS). Some designers will design you a website that’s hugely inflexible and difficult to edit, with 'hardcoded' non CMS'd features, or very graphic intensive so you'll have to go back to them each time to make changes. 

They often provide you with a difficult to use ‘techie’ open source CMS that turns you right off the idea of editing your website. If it's not easy, you won't do it. If everything is made so complicated, you’re stuck with constant extra charges as you go.

A designer with limited experience or a poor track record of designing Google friendly websites is straight away losing you money from the moment it goes live. You end up paying somebody else to optimise your website, or having to start again from scratch.

Your website is far too important to entrust it into the wrong hands.

We prefer to give you the control through your content management system, make it easy, and empower you to edit and market the site yourself - exactly what people prefer to do. Best of all we save you money by keeping your content management system constantly up to date, with the best of CMS upgrades, an always warranty, and amazing aftercare that includes free monthly training.

What editing features and modules does Siternity have?

Siternity CMS comes with a massive range of awesome content management features as standard plus a number of optional modules you can add at any stage. Any of our features can be fully customised and tailored to perfectly suit your business needs. Our sales team would love to give you a full demo and show off all that Siternity has to offer. We know you'll love what you see.

How long does a website take to go live?

Go live time depends upon the kind of website you choose. Some of our entry level websites can be live in less than 10 days, while far more advanced sites take months to design and develop. Average custom designed websites take between 3-6 weeks to design and put live.

Remember, writing your content is usually the slow part of getting any website live. Make sure you factor in enough time for this. Rest assured though, our web development team work quickly and won't hold you up. We live for deadlines, but we'll make sure it gets done right, and without cutting any corners!

Are your websites mobile friendly?

Yes we design all of our websites to be mobile friendly. We’ll never design any features that won't work on all tablet and smartphone devices unless absolutely requested to do so. We can also design a mobile version of a website or a completely responsive design that gracefully switches the layout of the website to suit all device sizes and types. The CMS also lets you turn off certain pages from the mobile view if you like.

What kind of upgrades do you give me?

Our Siternity upgrades range from new CMS editing features, new functionality, improvements, new CMS modules and security updates, to bug fixes, 3rd party integrations and speed improvements. We've rolled out an average of 150 content management system upgrades each year to each and every client.  

Some of our most raved about CMS upgrades included our Search Engine Optimisation Tool, our Social Media plugins, or our Image upload, resizing and cropping tools. People love the upgrades we do because they help make a real difference to how they market their business and manage their websites. 

It's the job of our R&D team to dream up anything that will help our clients edit and market their website easier, quicker and better. We listen to our customers and run focus groups to measure what is of most importance to their online needs. 

Is Siternity fully customisable?

Our web developers can do anything with Siternity - the sky's the limit on the visual design creativity can put into your website or any functionality that helps how your customer engages with your website.

We'll customise existing Siternity modules to your exact needs, build something totally bespoke, or integrate third party modules or plugins. Once we understand your exact customisation requirements, we can quote for the work involved.

Anything and everything is possible.

Do you host my website as well?

Yes, Siternity is a fully hosted CMS package meaning it includes website server, database, email and domain name hosting as standard. We also include full system backups and monitoring. It's all to allow us make sure your website works well and can be properly upgraded and supported. Moving across to us is a simple process with no downtime at all.

We've created a best of breed hosting platform for our CMS that ensures your website is fast, reliable, secure and always online. It includes the latest in Microsoft server technologies, MS SQL Server databases, email accounts, a year of backups (nightly, monthly), 24/7 monitoring every 15 seconds, and even a free domain name. You'll be physically located in one of Ireland's most advanced data centres in Park West, Dublin.

Following go-live you just need to cancel your old hosting package, there's no point paying for something elsewhere that you don't need.

What happens if I already have website hosting, email and a domain name?

Our new customers normally just cancel their existing website, email and domain hosting packages and move across to Webtrade with no downtime or fuss. Some customers have internal email servers or use GMail, MS Office 365 etc. for email and that's no problem at all. Domain names or email can be with any other provider you like. Webtrade is a top tier accredited reseller for the Irish Domain Registry.

Siternity is a fully hosted CMS solution, meaning we have to host any website we design. Our hosting environment is perfectly tuned to make your website work to its maximum. If we can't host your site, then we can't roll out the CMS upgrades our give the lifetime warranty and support our clients love us for. You certainly won't regret cancelling your existing hosting package after you move to Siternity CMS.

Can I keep my existing email and domain name?

Absolutely, if you'd prefer to keep using your existing email or domain name service providers, that’s no problem - many clients have providers already like GMail, MS Office 365 etc. We just like to give the complete offering and include secure POP3 email accounts for use on your own domain name that give 500Mb storage per domain as standard. We give unlimited email accounts, webmail functionality and options for anti-spam and anti-virus.

We include a free .com or .ie domain name and DNS services in all of our packages because it helps us support you better when everything is with one provider. We're a top tier accredited reseller for the Irish Domain Registry and can register and manage any domain name you'll ever need.

Is Siternity future-proofed? What about the latest HTML5 & CSS3 technologies?

Siternity brings you the latest in technologies, with the latest browser, HTML5 and CSS3 support, all built upon the latest in Microsoft.NET server software.

Webtrade is a Microsoft Certified development partner with our content management system having been audited by the Microsoft certification team. We future-proof your content management system by always keeping it up to date with new features, functionality and improvements as you go.

Am I tied in with Webtrade or Siternity?

You're never tied or locked in with Webtrade. Just because you're on our CMS hosted service and always running off the latest version of our content management system never means you're locked in with us. You always own your website design and all its content. You can take your website and host it elsewhere at any stage with another Microsoft web hosting provider.

As is the industry norm though, the intellectual property rights to our Siternity content management system obviously stay with Webtrade. We've invested over €2 million of R&D into Siternity CMS so it stands to reason you could not re-sell or re-badge it as your own software (which of course you won't be). Realistically you'll be only too delighted to stay with us for as long as possible – some 100 of our clients have been with us for over a decade!

My previous web designer went out of business, how can I be sure about Webtrade?

Unfortunately we get calls from people every few days who can't reach their previous website designer. Lots of web design companies, graphic design companies, freelancers and designer friends of friends are going out of business, emigrating, changing careers or just losing interest. Customers can't reach their web designers and are just left in the lurch. Sometimes their website is completely down and they can't even get access. We've taken over two such web design businesses in the past. We just became the new contact for their clients, and supported them as if they'd always been our own.

Webtrade have real substance and history, stretching right back to 1998 - 100% assurance. Customers are the lifeblood of all businesses and we have over 800 of them - active, loyal, and over 100 of whom have been with us over a decade. We're a leader in our field and recognised as such. We're financially sound, 7 times listed in the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 Awards, including 3rd, 4th and 5th placings. Having a chartered accountant as both our founder and our managing director has always kept us a financially steady ship. Having great web design, CMS product and customer service all help too!

Why are 'open source' options like Wordpress, Joomla and Drupal far more difficult and costly to use?

We like simple to use and non techie. We think regular business people and website owners do too.

90% of Webtrade's new customers moved to us having used an previous open source CMS but much preferred how much easier Siternity CMS is to use and the aftercare we're able to provide.

Open source website content management systems like Wordpress, Joomla and Drupal, by their nature are hugely technical and difficult to use - fine for a web developer, but awkward for the normal non-technical owner of a website.

Open Source Versus Commercial CMS?

Ask yourself whether you'd prefer using commercial software like Microsoft Windows on your PC or one of the many open source Linux operating systems you've never heard of? Would you prefer Microsoft Word for your word processing or the open source Open Office package? It's a no brainer.

Commercial software companies like Apple, Microsoft and Webtrade believe in making the best products, simple to use and functionally excellent. Open source is techie. Just the way techies like it. But it's not for us, and not for our customers.

Why Avoid Open Source CMS's?

In short, open source CMS's are difficult to use, carry more long term ongoing costs, tend to come with limited warranties, have all the limitations of old fashioned standalone websites, are more difficult to support, are more susceptible to hacking, they lack development control and can't guarantee being tailored to your exact needs.

We guarantee the exact opposite, with cost savings, total ease of use, upgrades always (without you having to get involved), a lifetime CMS warranty, best in support and knowledge that whatever you need developed for your website can be built and with ease.
