Why are you so much more Affordable than the other providers out there?
Many of the other Web Design companies out there take advantage of your lack of knowledge. Technology has changed dramatically over the last 10 years since we first started building websites, but prices have not. Many companies still charge massive markups and additional, unjustified monthly maintenance fees, they also charge you for unneeded 'extras'.
Our packages are completely flexible. The base package includes everything needed to be online and includes a base professionally designed template showcasing your logo and with your choice of colours. This base package is suitable for 99% of our customers, however If you do want 'extras' or changes outside this base template then there are small charges to do this (just tell us what you want and we can price it up for you) With our already set up World Leading 'Servers', and simple yet highly effective website designs, we can pass enormous savings on to you, while still having industry leading support and service.

Email support is always available to you for free.
Why would I want to lease or rent a website?
The Internet changes quickly so why would you want to invest 000's of dollars in technology that is outdated before you even get started?
