To be most efficient, engaging and safe, websites need constant retuning, just like a car. To continue with that metaphor, cars that are well taken care of, last longer. Unfortunately, at some point, they all need a new engine, new paint and eventually find their way to the scrap heap. One year for a website is like seven years for a car. Web development is one of the fastest evolving technologies as are the mobile devices that now power the internet. If your website is past its second birthday and has not been under the watchful eye of a web professional, it’s most likely due for an overhaul. Reworking an existing website if often just as time-consuming as updating it.

The written content, artwork, high-resolution photos and media you provide will be integrated into your website.

If you do not have artwork/media/content we can create/source/license this for you for an additional fee.
Your project includes an allowance of time for making changes, adjustments and tweaking. Once the template and sitemap have been approved, changes or additions outside the agreed scope of work might require additional time and costs to complete. For example, if you purchase a medium package and request items that require a large package, we will advise you to upgrade your package. Your project will never go over budget without your informed consent.

No, we require the web platforms we build and maintain to be hosted with 123-Internet. We require complete control of the configurations and settings needed for the optimum performance of your website and redundant backup systems in place. Many websites with high-security standards, PCI compliance and DoD/USAF websites are governed by an additional set of rules. The servers that house our websites have the added security measures of ISO Data Center Certification and Next generation DDOS protection to ensure your information meets Air Force Privacy Act and DISA regulations.
The hosting package includes: 1 to 3 GB Disk Space (depending on package) + Email on a VPS with SSD, SSL included, automated Daily Back-Ups (3 times daily, maintained off-site for up to 30 days), free restorations, custom configured for your CMS, a variety of licenses and free CMS/extension updates, patches and debugging.
Yes. Updates are immediate and ongoing to ensure the security and integrity of your website and are imperative in defending against hacking, malware and computer viruses. CMS and extension updates cover security gaps commonly used to compromise websites. Without frequent, ongoing and immediate updates your website's data and visitors to your website are vulnerable to a variety of risks. The majority of hacked websites could have avoided this hardship had they simply stayed current with updates and security patches.
Shared hosting is just what it sounds like. You are sharing the resources of a server with a wide range of other websites, with no guarantees of who your neighbors are. On a Virtual Private Server (VPS) you won’t suffer performance issues, security breaches and configuration restrictions that are often associated with shared hosting environments. Additionally, your VPS is custom configured and optimized for your website, not generically set up to manage the basic needs of hundreds of customers. Your website/software is set up to work in perfect harmony with the server which ensures flawless operation, faster performance, and greater reliability.
Secure Socket Layers (SSL) is what websites and browsers use to ensure the information passed between them is kept secure and encrypted, serving as an anti-hacking shield. Adding SSL to your website is of great benefit to your overall ranking with popular search engines like Google. Anyone who visits your website will know you take your security seriously. With SSL your website address will begin with https://. Having the trust of your customers is an essential element of all internet business and commerce, SSL is one of the cornerstones of developing and maintaining that trust. Having SSL will also increase your ranking with search engines.
We take data security and privacy very seriously. Our systems are hosted by ISO certified data centers protected by 24-hour surveillance and DDOS Protection. Backups are done 3 times a day and kept for 30 days.
