Our prices are quite straightforward. There is an initial set up fee of £195 and an ongoing monthly fee. All designs are available on all price plans. We believe in transparency with our prices – there are no hidden charges although there are some extra items such as setting up a Facebook page for you that are available at extra cost. If you are in any doubt please enquire.
When to Pay – we ask customers to set up their monthly standing order from the date that we start work on the website. This means that our outlay for domain registration and setting up hosting is covered from the outset. The setup fee is then payable within 3 days of the website being completed.
All prices are monthly payable by standing order, minimum one year, cancellable at immediate notice thereafter.
Additional pages or facilities available on request – please just ask. Extra monthly SEO available on all plans.
ALL OUR PLANS INCLUDE:
We will discuss with you the best domain name to choose. The cost including future renewals is included in the price for .co.uk and .com domains. The domain will be registered in your name, so that if in the unlikely event you want to move to a new website provider, you can take the domain name with you.
If you already have a domain name we can give you instructions as to how we can manage it for you or you can simply go to your control panel and point it to our hosting. If you want an extra domain name then that is charged monthly at £1 per .co.uk domain and £1.50 per .com domain
