Are there any ongoing costs to my website?
There are two main ongoing costs to keep your website live on the Internet:
- Hosting: Every website on the Internet needs to be ‘hosted’ on a server. It’s like paying a monthly “rent” for your website to “live” on the Internet. Without it, your website would not exist. We provide you with
one monthfree hosting and website management is charged each month. Our fees includes hosting andongoing support. See our website care plans.
- Domain Name Renewal: Each year, your domain name will require renewal. If we purchased this on your behalf, we will simply renew it for you at
