Website Hosting

We can give your site a home on the Web. We don’t pretend to be the cheapest solution out there, but usually the cheapest solutions have hidden costs. We offer what is called "managed hosting", so compare apples to apples.

As it says on the front page, we serve a limited clientele. We're not a big outfit, so we can't really afford to "make it up in volume". Hosting a website means that your information is available to the world, 24/7. Even while you sleep. It's a big job, but we're up to the task ;)

The rates below are ballpark figures, based on payment in advance on a quarterly basis. Discounts are available for prepayment. Prices subject to change, yada, yada, etc... These prices assume we're building your site, and doing updates. Yes, you can get your site hosted for less than $10 a month, elsewhere: but you'll be doing the maintenance yourself, most likely...

Why Us?

  • Years of experience in graphic design: we’ve created art and logos for businesses and organizations at the state and local level, and we can do it for you. We’ve been active in the field of brochure and publication design before the web attained its present popularity.
  • Years of experience on the web: we’ve been designing web pages since 1995, which means we’re downright old, in web years!
  • Creativity: many people build web sites, but it takes a certain spark to make them pleasing and elegant. Our background in the arts, combined with technical savvy is a powerful combination.
  • Innovation: we don’t do something just because that’s the way we’ve always done it. We’re constantly looking for ways and means to do our job better.
  • Attention to detail: if it’s not right, we’ll make it right. Your satisfaction is our primary goal.
  • Focus on you, the client: your site should reflect your vision, not a template in a program somewhere. We strive to give an individual look and feel to each project we undertake.

Other Questions...

Updates

Most of our hosting includes a bit of updating, in case you want to add a link, or change out a picture, or change a price or two. However, the addition of numerous pages after a site has been "wrapped"(see the fine print), or a redesign of the site, will be billed at $65/hr, with a $25 minimum.

If you would like to handle your own updates, just let me know, and I'll arrange for you to have FTP access, or access through a browser-based interface.

If you're going to be doing a fair amount of changes to the content, but not the appearance of the site (like a daily or weekly menu change for a restaurant), there is also the option of a CMS, or Content Management System such as NewsPro or Moveable Type. There's a bit of up front expense, but you can keep information current without paying us for lots of updates. See our Creative Services page for more details.

Optional & Extra, but Available: (See our Creative Services page)

Most extra services are priced at $65/hr

Flash Animation and extensive graphic work. Copy Writing

Photography priced $65/hr plus travel expenses.

Content Management System such as News Pro or Moveable Type will have a setup charge and add to the site design charge.
