Apart from the €499+vat, are there any additional or hidden charges?
No, the €499+vat is a once off charge to build your complete, professional-level website. However, if you do not already have a domain or hosting for the site then there is an extra annual charge for these, as outlined below…
Cost of complete site (once off cost) = €499+vat
Price including VAT = €613.77
This cost covers your chosen template and implementation of your logo, brand colours, images and content.
Deposit when you order = €100
Once you fill in the Web Builder Form you can pay your deposit using the Paypal button displayed or by sending a cheque or pay by Credit Card over the phone. The balance is due when site goes live. Deposits are non-refundable.
Domain per annum = €50+vat
This is for a .ie domain name. You may prefer a .com domain (Cost €30+vat pa) but very often these are already taken plus the .ie domain properly identifies you as a local, Irish business, which is important when people are searching online for a local service.
To check if a domain is already taken simply type the domain into your browser or email us a list of names you would like and we’ll check their availability for you, or we can suggest another domain that might suit you.
Hosting per annum = €120+vat
Hosting is a term used to describe the space where your site, all it’s data files (text, Images etc) and components are stored. After your site is built and for it to be published live on the web it needs to be stored on a server. At World Wide Web we will store your site on a secure server that’s backed up on a regular basis ensuring your data is properly protected.
For just €10+vat per month our hosting package includes creating a complete snapshot of all your data files, emails and databases every 4 hours and 4 weekly backups are also kept. In addition we use an independent Cloud Back-up service with a major international provider who makes a full back up of all our client’s sites every day. So you can be assured that your website, with all it’s files and data, is very secure.
If you require some extra features to your website then there is a charge depending on the amount of work involved adding these features to your website. Visit our Extra Features page to view what is available and the costs involved, click here.
The WordPress platform which the site is built on is continuously being updated so you will have to watch out for update prompts when they appear over time on the site. Some updates are simple and may not affect the site when you click the update, bigger updates may alter the layout and so will require a designer to fix it. Typically a site of this size would only require one upgrade/maintenance session in the year at a cost of €30+vat. We can do this before your domain and hosting are up for renewal each year.
How to pay
Here are the various ways you can pay your deposit or the balance due:
- Pay with Paypal via the Web Builder Form.
- Send a cheque to: World Wide Web, 34 Eastgate Drive, Little Island, Cork, T45 PY82, Ireland.
*Cheque will have to clear before work can begin on the site.
