FAQs

Can our organization keep the domain name we already have?

Yes. A domain name is not tied to your existing website. That said, as website and internet professionals, WordPressKC may suggest a domain name change to improve your online presence. Whether you change or not is completely up to you.

Our organization already has a website, will WordPressKC help us?

Yes. Although, we will only build and help with WordPress websites. If your organization’s website is not built with WordPress, the website will be rebuilt on the WordPress platform. If your website is built on WordPress, WordPressKC will help to improve your existing website… or completely remodel it.

How do I know if my website is built on WordPress?

Visit BuiltWith.com and enter your domain name. Built With will return a “Technology Profile,” listing technologies and software used to build your website. Scroll through, if your see “Content Management Systems” – “WordPress,” your website is built on WordPress. If you do not see this, it is not. Having trouble figuring it out? Send us an email and we will check for you.

What happens when our website is complete? Who will make updates?

WordPressKC will train your organization’s representative to be able to manage your website completely. Your organization’s representative will learn how to update software, update content, make basic style changes and more. If your organization needs future help updating the website, just come to a WordPress KC meeting and we will be happy to help.

Why do we have to send a representative to meetings?

A representative will not need to attend every meeting. In the beginning, we will have a “discovery” meeting with the project manager to outline the expectations for the new website. After discovery, we would like you to introduce your organization to the people working on the project. Later, we will need you to attend to discuss content, changes, launch, etc.

How many non-profit websites does WordPressKC Gives Back build at a time?

WordPressKC builds one non-profit website at a time. There is a wide range of experience and knowledge in our group. We build one website at a time so our novice members can experience every aspect of the website creation process and gain all the knowledge and experience they need

If my organization is not selected for this project, can we submit again?

Yes, absolutely. In fact, if your organization is not selected, we will contact you to ask if you still need our help and we will automatically consider you for our next project if so.
