Web hosting and domains
Now with unlimited bandwidth! Our hosting includes control panel access, unlimited emails, website statistics, and technical support.
For new hosting accounts, we always charge £275 + VAT for the first year, which includes up to an hour's support moving your files and emails.
We review your hosting each year to make sure you're on the right package, which means you don't pay for any increase until the following renewal. These prices are yearly:
- Low (100mb disk space, unlimited bandwidth) £175 + VAT
- Medium (250mb disk space, unlimited bandwidth) £225 + VAT
- High (1gb disk space, unlimited bandwidth) £285 + VAT
- Higher disk space: 5gb £350 + VAT, 10gb £400 + VAT, 20gb £500 + VAT, 30gb £600 + VAT
- Charity rate £50 + VAT
- Extra accounts £100 + VAT
We can also buy domains on your behalf, which we will always put in your name and automatically renew so you never lose them:
- UK domains (.co.uk, .org.uk, etc) £30 + VAT for 1 year
- Global domains (.com, .org, etc) £30 + VAT for 1 year
Secure certificates can be installed for £110 + VAT per year (based on using our hosting).
Price increases from 1st February 2022
We have increased some of our hosting prices, and also added unlimited bandwidth to all accounts. The increase only applies to the standard low, medium and high packages, and domain registration fees, with all other rates staying the same. It's been five years since our last price change, with this increase amounting to less than inflation during that period.
All our web design projects are subject to an agreement that defines the scope and terms of our service. This also defines the payment schedule, which normally consists of a one-third deposit. We do not normally charge a deposit to existing clients for work under £1000 + VAT.
30 day payment
Our standard payment terms are 30 days from the issue date of your invoice. We will send a reminder when your invoice is nearly 30 days old, and when it is due. If you have any objections or problems with payment, please contact us as soon as you can, so that we can address your queries before payment becomes late. Please note that any objections to the invoice itself must be raised within 14 days of receiving the invoice.
Beyond 30 days (or any other payment term we have agreed with you), your payment will be considered late. At 40 days after the date of your invoice, we will issue an invoice for late charges. Where applicable, we will also remove the services provided. We will issue a new charge at 60 days and every 30 days from then on.
If invoices are repeatedly paid late, we will cancel your credit and require payment upfront. We will also take legal action where appropriate to recover payments.
A note about completion
Our final invoice is issued when work is complete according to the requirements set out at the beginning of your project, except where we are unable to continue because of issues outside our control. For example, this might include waiting for your content or technical issues with third party hosting. If we are unable to complete the project through no fault of our own, we will still issue the final invoice.
Final payment does not constitute an end to our service, and we will still develop and support your site once the issue has been resolved. However, we cannot keep projects open indefinitely or delay payment due to issues outside our control. We believe this is the fairest way to ensure that we meet commitments to all our clients, and to our own employees and suppliers.
If you have any questions or comments about our terms, please get in touch.
