You want to start a web site but the variety of choices are confusing! You can relax because we are a 1-stop shop and we can make the choice easy for you. Below is an outline of how it typically goes. You can read that and/or you can give us a call to talk about your unique needs and how we can help.

|IF you chose any of our monthly services (hosting and/or HotKey), here is where you pay us 6 months up front. Twelve month option is available but not encouraged.* |
You are up and running
*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.
