Hosting, Updates & Support Charges

There are three key elements that you need to keep your website and email working nicely, secure and up-to-date…

HOSTING – Hosting is the hire of the infrastructure that makes your website and email function so it’s an essential service. All Clients websites are on our own dedicated, UK-based servers with unparalleled uptime and super-fast connectivity so your website has the absolute minimum downtime and your customers can connect to it quickly and easily.

UPDATES – The Internet and the technology behind it change at such a rapid rate that a website can become outdated fairly quickly. Unfortunately it’s no longer a simple case of setting-up a website then forgetting about it for years. A website that contains outdated code is vulnerable from a security perspective and can also develop bugs as browsers are updated.

SUPPORT – Support is to help you with specific problems or issues relating to your website.

Our Fully Inclusive Packages

We offer three packages which all include hosting of your website and email, plus updates and support.

BASIC £120 a year Email Only 48-hours Monthly Monthly
INTER £180 a year Phone & Email 24-hours Fortnightly Fortnightly
PREMIUM £240 a year Phone & Email 12-hours Weekly Weekly
IMPORTANT: Support covers advice and assistance with website-related issues or problems. It does not cover adding to, or editing your website pages (which clients can do via the CMS). Nor does it cover design changes, adding additional functionality, or providing advice on issues not related to your website. Our support is unlimited, but subject to our interpretation of fair use. Design work is charged at £45.00 per hour.

Our Support & Update Packages (for Self-Hosted Clients)

We offer four packages which all include updates and support but exclude hosting. These packages are for Clients who have their own hosting but still need to keep their website updated and assistance with any issues or advice.

BRONZE £69 a year Email Only 24-hours 30 Minutes Quarterly Quarterly
SILVER £99 a year Email Only 12-hours 45 Minutes Monthly Monthly
GOLD £149 a year Email + Phone 4-hours 60 Minutes Fortnightly Weekly
PLATINUM £199 a year Email + Phone 2-hours 75 Minutes Weekly Daily

Team Support (excluding hosting)

For companies where you require us to provide support for all of your team members rather than one dedicated individual within your company, we offer four packages which include differing support options. These costs are in addition of any our standard hosting or support packages (as above).

BRONZE £20 a Month Ticket Only 24-hours 30-Minutes Per Member
SILVER £30 a Month Ticket + Email 12-hours 45-Minutes Per Member
GOLD £40 a Month Ticket + Phone 4-hours 60-Minutes Per Member
