*Why do we encourage 6 month payment up front and no less or more than that?
First: Paying month-to-month is cumbersome. We've found 6 months works great. More than 6 months makes it harder to adjust to your changing needs. For example, you could have lower bandwidth usage than initially projected and we need to lower your monthlies. Or the opposite can happen. So we prefer you to pay for less of a time span for greater flexibility and more fair billing amounts. Ask about our "trust plan" where you defer payment until after a 3 or 6 month period.

You could have picked any Austin web designers but you came to us and we appreciate that! Finally, in case you are thinking about using us for hosting, check out this page: Austin web mail.
