All of our plans have a monthly subscription fee because we offer you a lot every month.

You get the following with every website plan:

  • Hosting for your website (a website without a host is just a bunch of files on your computer).
  • Your domain included (your domain makes it easy for people to remember instead of 45.33.234.78).
  • Real-time scanning around the clock to make sure malicious traffic is found and blocked.
  • Around the clock monitoring so you know if your websites goes down.
  • Access to premium WordPress plugins features that would otherwise cost you hundreds of dollars each year alone.
  • Regular updates of the website software (WordPress) so it’s sure to be secure and work well.
  • Daily backups of our servers in case they crash (sorry, we can’t restore your site if you mess something up but we can fix an error).

And that’s not even a complete list of everything we provide you! As you can see there’s a lot we provide you each month. We want to make sure you have access to all of this so your website can do amazing things for you.

Never To Lock You In

You don’t have to pay a subscription fee so we can lock you in. That’s not our goal.

In fact, we are so confident you’ll love our service and our worry-free websites that we’re completely transparent about everything. We use WordPress which is the most common content management system and we give you full access to your content.

That means you can export your website anytime and cancel your service with us. You take everything with you. The content won’t look the same but you will have the content. That is, it won’t look the same unless you use the same plugins. Just ask if you want to know what that is.

That’s about as transparent as we can be. We want to give you the best so you won’t leave but if you grow out of our service then we give you the option to leave.

Website hosting is only $x/month, why’s this so expensive?

This is way more than just hosting. Even in the hosting department your website is hosted on a top-notch server with top-notch uptime. It’s fast, dependable, and secure.

Your site will be hosted on SiteGround which is a top-notch WordPress hosting provider. That would cost you at least $15/month alone.

As if that wasn’t enough you’re getting access to a lot more than just a top-notch host. WordPress is free but many of the best plugins are not and we use many of the best WordPress plugins.

Yoast SEO isn’t cheap and neither is Beaver Builder and Themer. You’d be paying more than $300/year for these premium plugins.

Now does $49/month sound like a deal?

The security scans we do and the security software we use also costs money. That’s not included in normal hosting. These are things you absolutely must have but unfortunately most people won’t tell you that.

If you buy a WordPress website for $299 (yes I’ve seen them that cheap) one-time fee then you’re getting conned. They will give you either poor quality cheap plugins and themes or it will be stolen. In either case you’re not going to get the updates you need to keep your website secure.

You should be paying at least $29/month for the minimum maintenance of your website. Anything less and you’re buying cut corners and aren’t getting a good deal. Of course we do much more than that and even $49/month is a steal. You get 100% security, speed, and premium plugin access forever.

That’s why our websites have a subscription fee. We deliver value to make sure your business is always running online.
