Our £189 `Simple Start` website design and hosting solution provides you with a uniquely designed website plus web pages, hosting, email and much more.
`Simple Start` Website, Hosting & E-Mail solution
The key differences between this and our `Full Design` solution is that the site design in this package is a more simplistic `Banner` based design. You still get to choose colour schemes, where the menu is placed etc, but most of the design itself is within the banner at the top of the page.
The other key difference is that this option does not include the setup or configuration of the `Managed Content` or `Shopping Cart` functionality. These features are still available to you within the control panel along with a default set of templates, but any configuration work to these will charged at our `adhoc` rate.
We developed our `Simple Start` package to be a more cost effective way to have a web site solution without having to pay for complex functionality or a huge design project.
If you are happy with a simpler design and only have a small requirement for managed content or a single cart configuration,
then this option would probably be the most cost effective way to proceed as Managed Content and Cart Configurations start from around £20 (depending on requirements).
Please contact us to discuss your requirements & needs, we can discuss the best option for you.
Please note that year 2 onwards you only need to pay for hosting to continue receiving all the benefits below with no extras or hidden charges.
Our `Simple Start` package includes the following:--
