Costs

Domain Names (£25 - £35 / Year)

If you would like us to manage your domain names, we charge £25 / year for UK domain names and £35 / year for international domain name.

Web Hosting (From £50 / Year)

The standard cost for web hosting is £50 / Year and to this day, we’ve had no reason to increase this. However, if you are uploading an unusually large amount of media (images/music/video etc) to our server, or we experience extremely high volumes of traffic, we may need to increase this cost. Additional databases or sub domains may also increase this cost.

Important Information

To protect the security of your website and the security of the other websites on our server, we require the code in all of our websites to be kept up to date. Depending on the complexity of your website, the time taken for this will vary. We estimate this to cost around £90 / year, but you can have it carried out free of charge, by enrolling in our Free Website Updates scheme. If you don’t want to pay for these updates or enrol in our Free Website Updates scheme, there will be a £60 / year surcharge on your hosting, due to us having to run a server with legacy software.

Emails (From £10 / Year)

We can host emails for you at a cost of £10 / year per email account. This is with very limited space, so the accounts would need to be set up as POP3, which is very impractical when checking emails from multiple locations. As well as this, it’s become increasingly difficult for smaller companies to reliably deliver emails and also control SPAM. For this reason, we would highly recommend using Google Email For Work, which costs £3.30 / month per email account. Email communication is likely to be a key part to your business, so investing in a system which has a reliable delivery method, and a SPAM filter which will save you a huge amount of time, is definitely money well spent. They also provide free phone support that is always available, which is something we cannot offer.
