Start-Up Package (Static) - From £495

This is our most popular package to allow our customers to get a high quality, affordable four page site, for an all-in price.

What is it?

The Start-Up package contains all of the key elements needed to get your website up and running.



It consists of three main elements:

  1. The website pages: in this case four page website designed using the latest standards, to meet your particular needs. Typically the four pages consist of:
    1. Home Page – to give an overview of the site;
    2. Contact Page – including a contact form to enable customers to send enquiries;
    3. Product/service Page/s – the other two pages are often used to showcase the service or products you offer, and or give details of what other customers have said about your product or services.

      Of course, you can decide what you want to put on each page, and we will help you get the best out of your four pages.
       
  2. Domain Name: every website needs a unique domain name (eg www.wightmandesign.co.uk). As part of the Start-Up package, you get a FREE .co.uk domain name. Of course it can only be a domain name that has not already been registered by someone else.

    Just let us know what name you are interested in, and we will register it for you, so that you are the legal owner of the name. We will also set it up to point to the correct hosting account, so that visitors can see your site.

    If you want a .com or a domain ending in something else other than .co.uk, we are happy to do so – there may just be an additional cost.
     
  3. Hosting Account: again, every website needs somewhere for the individual website page files to reside, so that users can see them over the Internet. We use Wightman Internet for our hosting, and you get this free for the first year. Wightman Internet provides fast, reliable hosting for your site, with a 99.9% uptime guarantee. The hosting gives plenty of space for your website, and for expansion should it be needed in the future.

    The hosting account also comes with up to 10 associated email accounts. So for example, with the domain name www.wightmandesign.co.uk, email accounts such as info@wightmandesign.co.uk or sales@wightmandesign.co.uk could be set up, to allow you to send and receive emails related to your site or business.

So does this package provide everything I need to get my website up and running?

Yes – it provides all of the technical elements needed, and for most of our customers, we do the setup, to make sure it all works. The only thing you need to do is to create to content or copy as it is called, for each of the pages. You just need to write it and provide any specific images, and we will load it into the relevant pages.

Will I be able to update the content myself?

The content in this Start-Up package can be updated of course, but you will just need to let us know what changes are needed, and we will make the changes for you. There is an additional charge for this work, but you only pay for any changes as and when they are made.

If you want to be able to update the content yourself, you might be better off with the equivalent CMS package.

What happens if I want more than 4 pages?

Many of our customers want more than 4 pages, and we simple charge an additional £50 per page.
 

Start-Up Package (CMS) - From £595


As web technologies have matured, it has become easier to manage the content of a site through a Content Management System (CMS).

What is it?

This package provides the same high quality, affordable four page site as in the Start-up Package (for an all-in price) – but with the ability to update the content through a series of secure admin pages.

The Start-Up package contains all of the key elements needed to get your website up and running.



It consists of FOUR main elements:

  1. The website pages: in this case four page website designed using the latest standards, to meet your particular needs. Typically the four pages consist of:
    1. Home Page – to give an overview of the site;
    2. Contact Page – including a contact form to enable customers to send enquiries;
    3. Product/service Page/s – the other two pages are often used to showcase the service or products you offer, and or give details of what other customers have said about your product or services.

      Of course, you can decide what you want to put on each page, and we will help you get the best out of your four pages.
       
  2. Domain Name: every website needs a unique domain name (eg www.wightmandesign.co.uk). As part of the Start-Up package, you get a FREE .co.uk domain name. Of course it can only be a domain name that has not already been registered by someone else.

    Just let us know what name you are interested in, and we will register it for you, so that you are the legal owner of the name. We will also set it up to point to the correct hosting account, so that visitors can see your site.

    If you want a .com or a domain ending in something else other than .co.uk, we are happy to do so – there may just be an additional cost.

  4. Content Management System (CMS): this is a series of additional web pages that allow you to edit the content of any of the pages, using a layout that is very similar to Word or any other word processing package.

    It allows you to add images, Flash animation, documents and links, it also provides a range of standard text formatting tools.

    Access to the admin pages is via login, and comprehensive user guides are provided as standard – helping you to quickly and easily make changes to your content. 

Does this package provide everything I need to get my website up and running?

Yes – it provides all of the technical elements needed, and for most of our customers, we do the setup, to make sure it all works. The only thing you need to do is to create to content or copy as it is called, for each of the pages. You can write and edit this online using the CMS, and edit and amend it as much as you want, as often as you want, with no additional charges.

So I can update the content myself?

Yes, you can. The current CMS package does not allow users to create additional pages, but for the pages created, you have control over the content.

What happens if I want more than 4 pages?

As with the Start-Up (Static) package we simply charge an additional £50 per page and hook it up to the CMS for you, to allow you to make unlimited edits and changes to the new page.

Website Redesign

Do you already have a website but feel that you have outgrown it? Was it created by a friend or from a template? Do you want new functionality or features that you can't get from your current provider? Or do you feel your site needs updating or refreshing to give it a new lease of life, or to better reflect how you want your business to be seen by potential customers?

Whatever the reason, we would love to help you get the website you deserve.

Just let us know what you want and we can give you a free, no obligation quote. If applicable, and you want us to, we will extract and use as much of your existing content as we can (subject to copyright and contractual limitations with your existing provider). However, if you want a complete fresh start - we are happy to work through the best design to meet your needs.

Bespoke Design

Of course, you may not want to stick to any specific package, or a specific number of pages, and that is absolutely fine by us.

Our packages are great, but you can ask us to design as much or as little as you like. If you want just a particular
