How do the pay monthly website charges work?2021-04-24T11:52:12+01:00

You are required to pay your first pay monthly fee and a set up fee at the start of the project. Once that is paid we start website build process. Pay monthly website fees are then required on the 1st of each month. There is no lengthy, fixed-term contract period on our pay monthly website plans. You are free to cancel at anytime by giving us 30 days’ notice. This is often referred to as a rolling monthly contract.

We’ll set-up a direct debit with you when you first sign-up or you you can pay by standing order so we the can collect a regular payment each month. It’s that simple. Any upfront cost and add-on services will also be collected within the first month of signing up.

If you decide to cancel your contract, you will need to provide us with 30 days’ notice via email. After we’ve received your notice, we’ll confirm any final payments due and let you know when your website services will be switched-off.

Why WordPress?2019-05-01T09:35:42+01:00

WordPress is a very flexible content management system (CMS) that we use to build our websites. It can be used for any type of website, large or small, from simple static one-page websites to multi-page more complex websites. The benefit of WordPress is that developers around the world are constantly working to make new features and improve it. This means that website designers like us can concentrate on building awesome websites using the tools that they provide. It is constantly evolving and upgrading, allowing your website to evolve with it.

Being a CMS means that you can have access to the website (through an admin area) and make changes yourself. This is great for blogging. However, we warn our customers about making structural changes to the website. Any mishaps that may occur and require fixing would be done so by us at our hourly rate of £75.

What about a domain name?2019-05-01T09:46:04+01:00

Your domain name is one of the most important decisions you can make for your business.

If you do not already have a domain name, we will help you choose the perfect domain name to reflect your business.  This cost will be included in your pay monthly package.

The domain will need to be renewed every 12-24 months and this charge will be included within the cost of your hosting fee which is part of your pay monthly package.

What do you need from me?2019-05-15T15:28:13+01:00

We have comprehensive website design questionnaires which you can complete either online, or we can talk you through it over the phone.

This questionnaire forms our consultation and covers topics from content to colour schemes to type-face. You may already have these decided, or you may wish us to create these for you. The idea is that we extract as much information from you as possible so that we can present your business in the best way possible in your new website.

Can I pay by instalments?2019-05-08T08:54:33+01:00

Yes! We have created affordable plans that allow you to spread the cost of your new website.

What about ongoing charges?2019-06-04T09:28:18+01:00

Our website and email hosting fee is included in your package.

Every 12 or 24 months your domain may need to be renewed. This is included within all of our pay-monthly packages.

We include a certain amount of free amendment/update time per month, which differs between packages. If you require any amendments to the website over this time, it will be done at our hourly rate of £75. We will always provide you with a quote beforehand.

How long will it take?2019-05-08T08:54:57+01:00

It takes approximately 2-4 weeks to build a website from start to finish, providing we have all the information from you.

Once we have completed the initial website build we will send you a link to review it. We can make any adjustments for you at this point. Once any alterations have been made we will make the website live.

On average this whole process with take 4-5 weeks. For larger, more complex websites, this may take longer. As such, for smaller projects this may be a quicker process.
