Have any questions? Happy to help!
After you start a plan with us we will contact you to request a few extra details and answer any questions you may have. Some of the things we will need right away are:
- Domain name registration details
- Current hosting and WordPress user logins (if applicable).
- Google Analytics shared with our email account (if applicable).
Work will begin on your site immediately, but speed improvements may take some time as we need to tread carefully as not to cause major issues with the website.
Feel free to start sending us changes straight away, and we will make it happen!
The time we spend on your account is billed at the end of each month. Our base rate is $2 a minute.
Pro & Full plans include 30 min and 60 min of expertise with the subscription. Therefore the work at the beginning of each month is not billed when on these plans. This time does not accumulate if unused.
If you have multiple website plans for different websites, then you are billed for all work at the best rate of your best plan.
If we expect a request or issue will take less than two hours, then we will proceed without approval. This is to prevent delays and the inefficiencies in back and forwarding. We will request approval for any work we expect to take longer than two hours.
Email notifications are sent after every five hours of work on your account. These emails include the task, who and when the work has been done. You can reply directly to the email, to stop, change or question the work being done.
The time we spend on your account is added to the monthly invoice and debited automatically. However, if there is ever an issue or concern about billing, we are more than accommodating in working out a solution.
We will fix it! We work to reduce the number of plugins that could cause problems and may have compatibility issues, so chances are the site is always great. Any site downtime is a code red, and the problem will be dealt with immediately as your business is our business.
In cases requiring significant work and repair, we will restore a stable backup and email you about what is needed, so we can decide on the best way forward together.
Each month we take it upon ourselves to earn your business all over again. You are NOT locked into a contract and can cancel at any time. This keeps us accountable and you confident that you are receiving the best website services month after month.
While we always advise that a subscription will save you money in the long run, we do custom development at our full rate.
We will do our best to accurately estimate the time involved to complete a request or project.
Sometimes we request prior payment or progress payments to schedule and allocate resources.
These prepayments act as a credit note or “hour bank” for our expertise. If we use the bank and the project or work changes or exceeds our estimate, then the excess time is billed.
We love transparency and communication, and we keep your costs down by billing you precisely for the work done on your account without contingency costs and overpromising.
Chat with us. We are always Willing to share our thoughts.
Nearly all single item requests are completed within 24 hours, but we work on a business-critical system, so in some cases, we will queue-jump critical tasks based on priority.
Someone is watching the inbox nearly 20 hours a day (less on weekends), so urgency is our specialty.
Requests with multiple items may take longer, as each item is treated as a single request.
Yes, we do! The FULL plan allows us to do hack cleanups and restoration. Even if you don’t need all the FULL plan options long term, we highly recommend you keep it active for a minimum of 6-12 months as hacks have a habit of resurfacing and we can spend any expertise elsewhere improving your web presence.
You will notice a vulnerability and security report if you are on a FULL plan. To keep you secure is a case by case approach, but these are some of the things we do:
- Daily cloud backups
- Force secure passwords
- Daily malware and hacker scan
- SSL certificate (padlock in the browser)
- Real-time uptime monitoring
- Brute force protection
- Add a firewall
- Blocking bad IP’s and crawlers
- Database optimisation
- Spam comment protection
- Adjust file permissions
- Google CAPTCHA on login
- Manage inactive plugins and themes
You will see the performance and speed of the website in the regular reports you receive. To improve this, we often do the following:
- Image optimisation
- Add a CDN (Content Delivery Network)
- Leverage browser caching
- Enable Gzip compression
- Remove query strings
- Optimise the mobile experience
- Combine external requests
- Lazy load images
- Reduce server response time
Subscription plans are essential in our relationship. The plan allows us to connect our tools and then back up, monitor, secure, host and update the website. It also allows us to significantly reduce our expert’s billable hourly rate for Pro & Full plans.
A separate plan is required for each website URL, and the plan can be cancelled at any time with no minimum commitment.
Subscriptions need to be paid via a credit card subscription or direct debit agreement through our customer billing portal.
New websites into our care usually require some initial billable time to clean-up and optimise. Chat to us, and we will take a look and let you know our thoughts.

Recent Website Builds
At our core is website maintenance, security, performance and customer support, but along the way, we have mastered designing and developing websites that deliver.
We also build dozens of websites for other design and SEO agencies, acting as the technical partner and offering a simple and efficient white-label solution.
Free DNS & Domain Management
To take full advantage of our performance and security enhancements, we require domain names to be pointed through our Content Delivery Network (CDN) and WAF Firewall. For this reason, we include DNS management as a service. If you ever need to make a change like setting up GSuite, adding a TXT or CNAME record then we do this for you FREE of charge.
It does not matter where you choose to host your domain name but if you want to keep everything together, we will match or beat the price you are currently paying your domain name registrar.
