Note: Not all of these items come as standard offerings from other well-known web hosting entities (charged as extra ‘add-ons’). Many do not offer site backups as standard. Every element in our offering is vitally important, yet often missed by customers, unaware these are not always standard.
- Website:– for a one off, agreed cost, we will develop a clean and modern website, and install our standard list of site security and licenced plugins (apps). These include,
- Cloudflare, SSL certificate. Cloudflare protects against threats such as SQL injection and identity theft. Also improves site performance and speeds up loading times. It activates the padlock and https protocol on your website, indicating a secure connection. SSL digitally binds a cryptographic key to your domain name, company name, location and host server name.

It affords the ability to take action in the context of your site – for instance requiring additional factors of authentication, sending a post to moderation, throttling bots that may be scraping content.)

- Social Media integration for Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Twitter and others. Social media integration is the process of cross-promoting your social media accounts on your website, so they are more frequently used, explored and shared. This is something that your business needs to do to be competitive in today’s marketplace.

- When your website is ready to go live, we’ll carry out one hour of search engine optimisation. Modern search engines are not “set and forget” configurations, so if search engine rankings are important to you, then ongoing SEO work is highly recommended. Ongoing SEO is not included in this offering (sold separately).
- Occasional content edits: We will supply up to three 20-minute sessions per annum to quickly add or edit page content at no charge. Talk to us if you require more than that and we’ll work out something reasonable.

- Design changes, site expansion and subsequent add-ons: If you wish to change your mind, add new functionality, different images, or even a new layout, then that won’t be a problem. You will however have to pay us for the work that we have completed up to that point, and then we’ll switch you over to an agreed hourly rate to cover the revisions and changes thereafter.
