Webkit 5 is our brilliant new platform that provides our customers with a host of fantastic new feature improvements and unlocks new functionality that can be added to sites with ease. However as with any new product or service, we understand there may be questions around what it is, how it works and why it's needed. Here are some frequently asked questions answered for you..
Yes. We've build Webkit 5 for the future so it's designed for Responsive websites. If you are not Mobile Responsive in 2020 it's crucial you have a discussion with us about upgrading. We can look at the best prices for upgrading to Mobile Responsive as well as migrating to Webkit 5.
Webkit 5 costs come in two parts. The first is an up front cost of £195+vat which covers the upgrading process. This involves rebuilding elements of a website to ensure complete compatibility which we estimate will take us between 4-6 hours per website. The second cost is a small £5+vat per month charge that covers additional hosting costs & our 2 years of development time.
Highly unlikely. We've worked on this platform for 2 years and have had the service running successfully on our Support and Live website for months now with no problems. Our Beta Testers may catch things we've yet to see, but our Development Team will be on hand to fix any issues right away. Remember, we can always turn Webkit 5 off and roll back any changes if required.
Absolutely, however the up front costs and monthly charges new clients pay include the costs associated with Webkit 5.
Speed (Google) and visuals. Webkit 5 massively speeds up the loading times of our websites which Google absolutely love. It also allows our clients to use new front end functionality that improves how the website presents images, files, videos and forms.
Beta Test is a type of testing period for software products prior to commercial release. Beta testing is the last stage of testing we do before we are 100% happy a new product of ours is ready for all our customers.
Our hope is that Webkit 5 lasts at least as long as our current platform has, which was released in 2012. We've future proofed our websites to ensure they have everything they need based on modern browsers, clients and devices.
No. Webkit 5 updates will happen as standard over the coming years. You won't notice changes, we'll just be improving our systems as we go which we've been doing since our last Webkit was published in 2012. The only time you would need to pay is if we built a brand new Webkit again in the future, but don't expect this to be for another 10 years!
