Domain and Hosting
We can search and provide a selection of available domain names that reflect your company name or type of business. Once your domain name is secured, we will arrange for your website to be hosted by one of the leading website host providers. We will ensure that your website host company will provide high availability, that it gives the option to provide more storage and processing power if your website needs to grow and that it provides a high level of security for your website.
We will work with you to understand your Business and what you would like to achieve from your website. We will work with you to design a website that reflects your Business, to include your company branding, links to social media, email contact as well as your Business information and content. We take a step-by-step approach with an initial consultation and agreement of your requirements. We then provide a draft demonstration model of how your website would possibly look. At this point we can fine tune the structure and content of the site before making it live and visible to your potential clients
Maintenance Care Plans
Just like any other part of your Business, once your website has been made live it will need to be regularly maintained. Regular backups are recommended, and, like any other software or App, upgrades completed as new versions are released. You may also need to update the information on your site to reflect changes in your Business, new promotions or additional services. We can assist you with these requirements through one of our Care Plans. This will be dependent on the amount of support and frequency of content changes, but a suitable Care plan and costs will be discussed before the website is made live. Alternatively, you may decide to manage the ongoing maintenance yourself, in which case access to the website will be passed over to yourself after the site has gone live.
M1 - Basic Care Plan
The Website will be backed up daily and all updates and their testing applied monthly including the backup of the WordPress database. A performance report will be issued to the Customer monthly
M2 - CMS + Care Plan
Website Content will be updated to an agreed schedule and volume of change. This will be based on the amount of Pictures, Text and complexity of the change and therefore on time to implement. All items in the Basic Care Plan will be included
M3 - Self-Maintenance
Self-maintenance is perfectly agreeable, and we can supply access and security information as well as transfer the hosting contract as required. The Customer will then own the relationship for Hosting and maintain all aspects of their website. If the Customer requires, or after 60 days have expired since the Go Live date with no maintenance agreement, we will transfer the hosting contract and website support details to the client. A Video/PDF will be provided for the Customer to complete the maintenance themselves and Redhot IT Webs will no longer be responsible for the site maintenance
M4 -Standard Maintenance
We can offer a (£40) standard charge for content maintenance changes only, however if large changes are required (more than one hour), we will charge by time/volume. These charges only apply to a website created by us and continually maintained by us.
