Startup & Small Business Monthly Website FAQ’s

How do I request updates?

Update requests are straight forward, you’ll receive access to our projects system which you then email with your update requirements. Whether this be text updates, price list changes, image updates etc. We’ll aim to have your changes made to your website either on your monthly update day or within 48 hours dependent on your package – simple!

How do I make payment?

The initial deposit of £99 will be taken by card or bank transfer, at the same time we’ll send you an online Direct Debit mandate form by email and the monthly payments will be collected by Direct Debit on the same day of the month as your initial deposit payment.

What if I need to add extra features to my site?

Later on down the line you may realise you want to add some specialist features, maybe take payments by credit card, perhaps sell some items online – no problem, we can provide you with a one off estimate to expand your current site to include those features. Some features can be added to your site while still in the Isle Hive, other, larger upgrades may require your site to be broken out of the Hive and into your own WordPress install, we can discuss the options with you based on your requirements.

The idea behind our Hive website packages is to allow you to get online with a professional website from the outset, then expand your site as your business grows, flexibility is built in and we can adapt and expand your website as and when your business needs.

Can I make my own updates to my site?

No, we develop our Startup sites on the Isle Hive without a CMS. The idea behind our monthly maintained sites is that we handle all of the technical side of things, all you need to do is tell us what you would like. This also helps in keeping our pricing as low as possible as we don’t need to configure an end user CMS.

As your site grows you may find that you would like your own CMS so you can make changes to your site yourself. If this happens we can provide you with a price to break your site out of our Isle Hive platform and straight into your own WordPress setup. This may also be necessary if you need extensive expansion to site functionality.

If you would like a CMS from the outset so you can maintain your own site yourself our Hive packages aren’t the best fit for you and we can discuss other options with you.

Will I own the finished website?

You will own your website after the first 12 months. After that, we will host, maintain and update it for as long as you continue paying the monthly fee.

The Isle Hive platform is a hosted service, there will be a fee to cover our time if you ever wish to move to a different hosting company. Please see the section on cancellations, below.

What if I decide to cancel or move elsewhere?

There is a 1-year minimum term, after which you can cancel at any time. Your website will then be taken offline, unless you wish to move it to a different host.

If you decide to move to a different web host after the 12-month minimum term, then we will need to do some work to move your website to a standalone WordPress installation, outside of the Isle Hive system. The cost for this would be £360. We can then give you access to the files and database so that you can migrate it to your own host.

If we have registered your domain on your behalf your domain will remain your property and will be transferred to a domain registrar of your choosing.

Why is this offer only available within the Isle of Thanet?

Due to the low cost nature of this offer and the fact that we still include a face-to-face meeting with all web clients whenever possible it currently isn’t possible to offer this pricing outside of the Thanet area at this time.

Being based in Thanet it’s also nice to be able to offer something a little special locally.

What about SEO?

Your affordable Isle Hive website will be built to be SEO friendly. We’ll set up Google Analytics so that you can access data about how people are using your website, which you can use to improve your conversion rates.

To further boost your search engine position, we offer one-off or ongoing SEO services to optimise your website and build your wider online presence (chargeable separately).

Is there anything not included within the package that I will need?

Our startup packages cover just about everything you’ll need to get online, the only thing you may need if you don’t already have one is a logo. If you don’t have the budget for full professional branding at this time we can create a simple text based logo for use on your site.
