Hosting & Support Packages
* Website support minutes cover anything from new feature requests, content updates, image formatting and uploads, small design changes, CMS training, marketing advice & consultations etc. Support minutes can be carried over for up to 3 months. If it becomes apparent that you will need a higher level of support than the package you are on, we will recommend you upgrade to another package or create a bespoke support solution specific to your business needs. Website updates, design changes etc for ‘Hosting Only‘ packages will be charged at our hourly development rate (currently £35.00 per hour).
** Depending on the type of site a client has they may need secure hosting (SSL) or even their very own dedicated server. In these cases we will create a bespoke HostingPlus package for them based on their unique requirements. We also provide special discounts for clients who host multiple websites with us (3+). Please enquire about these prices by contacting us on 0161 638 3893 / 07824 696911 or email us at email@example.com.

Any revisions, additions or redesign the client wishes HIA Web Design to perform which is not specified in the support package shall be considered “additional” and will be quoted and invoiced separately. We will advise you if this is the case.
It is now becoming common practice for all websites to have an SSL (Security Certificate) installed on them. Google has indicated that a secure site can be given up to a 5% ranking boost as a result of it being secure. HIA Web Design recommends that all sites have an SSL installed on their hosting in order to comply with all security measure and to ensure that no browser restricts the viewing of the site due to a ‘non secure’ host. We offer SSL Certificates at £100 per year, payable annually, in addition to basic hosting or support package costs.
