Our hosting services are provided by a reputable and reliable third-party in the US where we have a dedicated server and segregated cPanel for each client. Local hosting in Canada is an available additional option. This plan includes 5GB of disk space and 50GB of bandwidth. Extra disk space available at $5 per GB and bandwidth available at $5 per 20 GB. Hosting is also optional if you prefer to maintain your own host, we can provide maintenance services with access to your hosting account.
We update all security patched released based on your plan's frequency, secure your forms with spam protection, and ensure our tried and tested security best practices are always in place.
Plugin and platform updates
Add-ons for your content management system, often called plugins or modules, have frequent updates that need to be applied. We take care of all of that for you to make sure your website is always up-to-date with current technology and offers the newest and most stable functionality.
Everytime we run the updates on your website, we will spotcheck your website, run a performance diagnostics test, confirm your website still indexed on Google. Any issues we discover will be reported to your immediately with our recommendations.
When you have technical related questions about your website, our experts are here to help. Support requests are easily made by emailing or through our client portal. Each request triggers a support activity for our team to triage and action. We respond within 24 hours (1 business day) and address diagnostics within 72 hours (3 business days). Our support hourly rate is $105/hour.
24-hour response time
We understand that your website is critical to your business operations. Our support inbox is monitored from 9 am to 5 pm from Monday to Friday and we will respond to all your requests for support within 1 business day (24 hours) or less.
Your business relies on a fully functional and operational website. Our experts will schedule and complete all support requests that require an investigation within 3 business days (72 hours) or less and get back to you with our findings and a solution or a way forward.
Never miss an e-mail
Web servers are notoriously bad for handling e-mails sent through your website, that's why we use an e-mail relay service to ensure and track your email deliverability. Above and beyond that, we will set up a backup system to save all your form submissions in the database of your website, that you can access anytime, just in case an email is lost of doesn't get through. This way, you never miss a form submissions, sales lead, or contact request.
SSL certificate for HTTPS
Maintaining your SSL certificate is included. The cost of purchasing a top-level SSL certificate is additional; you can do it or we can recover that cost from you after. If we are purchasing or renewing a top-level paid certificate on your behalf, we will provide a quote for our services as the process can be quite involved in terms of online forms to fill in and configuration information to document. If your site does not require a top-level paid certificate, we will set your site up with a free certificate using ZeroSSL (formerly Let's Encrypt) which lasts 90 days and we will renew it as part of the plan for no extra charges.
Nightly offsite backups
Each night, we automatically backup your website files and database to a remote offsite server. This means we can revert back to a previous version in case an un-repairable situation occurs for any reason for up to 15 days.
Don't have the time or desire to make content updates to your website yourself? Want a small or big adjustment to your website's design or functionality? Our experts can do it for you.

All requests will be quoted and priced at affordable and flexible rates based on the expertise required for the job at fair, affordable, and flexible rates which will always be lower than our fixed hourly rate for clients who are not on a monthly plan.
