Your website is a growing, breathing creature that is alive on the web. Maintenance refers to the ongoing updates and changes that your website will need. Consider it “food” for your site.
We use the word “need” because we feel that regular updates to your site are essential for your continued success. However, it’s not mandatory. Many websites stay stagnant with no changes at all throughout their entire life. We believe that to keep your customers coming back, and to keep your site a good representation of your company — it will need periodic updates.
After we have developed your website, an hourly fee (see below) will apply when we are maintaining your site.
Hosting makes your website visible to anyone looking for it. Without hosting, your website is not accessible; your site might exist – but not on the web.
We offer monthly and yearly packages. Hosting fees vary greatly depending on your needs. If you have a very small, basic web site that doesn’t need any special features, you shouldn’t have to pay more than $30 per month. Larger sites and those with special programming features are subject to higher hosting fees. These types of hosting services can cost anywhere from $30-200 per month. On average, our fees are $30 per month.
A domain name is your website’s address. Domain names begin with ’WWW’ followed by ’THE NAME YOU CHOOSE ’, and end with ’.COM’. For example, our domain name is www.designedgestudio.com.
If you would like us to register your name for you, please contact us. We offer domain names at discounted prices and often give them to you free when you have us develop your web site.
Our designs are usually estimated on an individual basis. Clients, projects and budgets vary — as do our services. Fees vary depending on not only the scope of the project, but also the level of involvement from our clients.

There is no charge for the initial consultation. If you decide to have us create a design for you, a deposit will be required. Deposits range from $200 up to one-third of the final estimated cost. For large projects, a progress payment will be required half-way through the design process.
All projects require final payment to be paid in full upon completion. Maintenance and hosting fees are billed monthly and due upon receipt. We offer annual hosting plans at discounted rates. For more information on our fees or our discount plans, please contact us.
