The full cost of your website design and build is spread over a period of time with our low cost monthly subscription payments and an initial set up fee. The set up fee and first months subscription are due at the start of the project. Once that has been paid we will start work on your website.
Depending on which website plan you are on the initial contract is provided on either a 24 or 36 month period. Our 1 page and 5 page website plans are provided on a 24 month contract, the remaining three plans are provided on a 36 month contract. The plans are tailored to provide you with the most cost effective way to pay for you website. Once the initial contract has finished your website subscription will continue on rolling 1 year contract. You can opt out of the website design plan at this stage and select a hosting only package.
The monthly payments cover the initial design and build cost of your website, along with hosting fees, daily backups, general maintenance plus monthly security & software updates. As a bonus, we also provide you with FREE design time each month which can be used to update your website. The amount of time you get depends on which website package you are subscribed to.
