managed website is a feature that we offer to those who have always
wanted a website, but have no idea how to create one or edit it. We
become your webmaster.
For a flat rate, one time fee of $250 dollars (up to $450 if you are including an online store) we will build your site. You are not stuck with some primitive template website that we create and give you, we work hand in hand with you and create the layout and design with the features you choose. Managed websites are also maintained by us at no charge to you. You are still responsible for regular hosting fees, depending on which size hosting package you choose.
Any security scripts that are released are installed on your site to keep it safe and updated at all times. This is just one of the no cost (to you) services that we provide to keep your site up to date.
Any content additions or alterations that are pertinent to your site are also done by us at no cost to you.
You simply send in a support ticket requesting that we add a picture here, or a product to your store, or an article etc. and we will make the requested edits for you. Non pertinent additions, or alterations such as adding chat, guest books, discussion forums, interactive scripts, theme alterations, site add-ons or software, etc. will be quoted a fee of $20.00 per hour.
The Starter, Intermediate, and Professional packages are all based on size.
For example the Starter package comes with 1000 megabytes of space, and the Professional comes with 2000 megabytes of space. Full package specs can be found on the front page but basically as each package steps up it increases your resources: storage space, bandwidth, number of allowed databases, etc.
A site that may have many photo galleries, or a discussion forum with lots of traffic may want a hosting package with more resources.
These are also the packages that are used for our managed sites, which are sites that we build and maintain for clients.
We install any new versions of the software to keep your site up to date and secure, we make any content changes or alterations, and we do any editing that you may need, all at no cost to you.
The AdvantagePlus package is a hosting plan for those who are capable of building, uploading and maintaining their own sites.
If you use a CMS like Joomla, Drupal, Wordpress, etc...you will also be responsible for keeping your version of that software up to date which keeps your site secure. The developers release newer versions and you will need to upgrade yours in a timely fashion. If you do not your site provides an exploit to our server and will be promptly removed.
You make all your own content changes, uploads, and editing. A savings plan for do it yourselfers at $7.95 a month.
Any Forums, Estores, Chat etc...and other third party software can be added at additional costs.
