We offer website maintenance packages with features to best suit your needs. Choosing one of these packages is required for any website that we build. Based on discussions, we can select the plan that works best for your personal or business website goals. All maintenance packages also include managed website hosting.
Website maintenance is critical to any business or individual, regardless of size. Your website is a worldwide window into your business and has a significant impact on how the value of your product or service is perceived. All businesses need regular website maintenance to attract and retain customers, maintain search engine rankings, and present new information, products and services to the public.
Monthly website packages are invoiced either monthly or pre-paid annually. They also include a reduced hourly rate for additional work. All tasks in the Basics package are included in the larger monthly plans. The below plans are simply examples, and all plans can be customized according to your unique needs.
If you're unsure about what may work best for you, or the above plans don't quite fit your needs, we could certainly custom-tailor a package to your specific requirements. Just let us know!
Some of our hosting features included with above packages are below:
All data is backed up daily offsite, so that it can be restored should any issues arise.
We use only enterprise class server hardware. Our entire shared hosting environment uses the latest generation Intel processors and fully solid-state-drive driven storage in raid 10 arrays.
We use the best control panel software on the market: cPanel. This powerful package puts control of your entire site at your finger tips.
We offer domain-based email hosting at $5/month per account. You can send and receive using webmail or your own email program using IMAP. Features such as forwarding and spam filtering come standard.
Work done beyond maintenance packages is charged at a pay-as-you-go rate. Therefore, if you don't expect to make changes every month, you may decide to go with the basic maintenance package, and use pay-as-you-go services when needed.
Charges will not be rounded up to the nearest hour, they will simply be pro-rated based on exactly how much time is taken to complete the requested work.
If you require urgent work to be completed within 24 hrs, this may be charged at an express rate of $95/hr.
*Basic Maintenance plan is still required for websites.
Why is the basic maintenance package required?
Keeping a self-hosted website up and running, as well as ensuring it remains secure, requires regular maintenance involving making sure the software, as well as all integrated plugins and add-ons are kept up to date. Sites running outdated software can have security holes that can potentially be exploited and compromised. Basic support includes routine updates and checks every month, as well as technical support when required. Without these tasks, there can be no guarantee that your website will remain up and running, and the cost and time expense of recovering a compromised site can be significant. The basic maintenance fee covers these preventative tasks. All packages include the hosting of your website and all related costs.

How do you bill?

Is there a discounted rate if I pay annually?
