1) Do I need a SSL/TLS certificate?
An SSL/TLS certificate will ensure the client (visitor) connection to the website is secure and encrypted. It confidence to visitors they have a secure connection to your site. Google is now rewarding websites that have a SSL/TLS certificate with higher Google rankings, this can improve brand awareness and trust.
2) How long is an Aftercare Package valid for?
Aftercare Packages are yearly contracts and there are no hidden costs
. The initial contract period is for 1-year and can be renewed on a yearly basis as required.
3) Why specify 8 hr and 16 hr availability?
8 hrs is equivalent to 1 full working day per month, and 16 hrs is two working days. For small monthly amendments such as changing text or adding some photos, 8 hrs work in a month may be sufficient. More time-consuming changes such as adding additional pages will require more work and the extra reserved hours reflects this.
Examples of website updates can include:
- Changing text/images
- Adding new content
- Basic styling changes
- Improve website performance (optimising content)
- Edit already-existing content
4) Why do I need a Standard or Enhanced Package?
In addition to ensuring your website is secure with an SSL/TLS certificate, you are guaranteed development time for any changes or modifications you would like. Perhaps you've changed your location and opening hours, or maybe you want to introduce a carousel of images displaying your portfolio work. This will be covered under the fee provding work does not exced the reserved hours paid for.
5) What if I don't use my reserved developer time?
Unused hours will roll over to the next month, and will continute to compound until the end of the contract. This flexible approach provides certainty your requested changes can be made at no additional cost.
