We incorporate both open-source and commercial applications to provide cost-effective solutions for even the tightest budgets, allowing you to benefit from competitive pricing. Our experience, comprehensive design and technical skill sets are employed to build your website at an affordable cost.


Site Design Costs Determined By

  • time required to research & test appropriate extensions & administrative components for your site
  • graphic design if required
  • number of images used & whether they require stock photo fees or custom editing etc.
  • installation & customization of extensions such as shopping-carts, event calendars, image galleries, course-ware, directories or other specialized applications
  • volume & complexity of content pages
  • proof-reading & editing if needed

Possible Additional Costs

  • Once a color and layout theme is decided and work has begun, any requested changes may incur some added cost to the final bill.
  • Costs for additional content pages or other work requested during the project, which was not included in the original quote, will be added to the final bill.
  • If you do not host your site with our hosting service and we run into any installation issues with the hosting company you choose, there will be an added cost for the extra time we have to spend accomplishing the launch of your site. NOTE: When using our HOSTING SERVICE there is no added fee to get your site set up and launched.
  • Once your site is launched and your final bill is settled there are NO ongoing fees other than hosting costs. If we are asked to provide site maintenance such as removing, modifying or adding content / images, installing applications and features not originally included in the design etc., we keep a work log and bill at a competitive hourly rate. Most sites do not require more than occasional content maintenance work and if you host with us, we also perform periodic upgrades to components and extensions running on your site and log the time required to do that work.

The Platform Your Site Is Built On

  • Sites are built on WordPress or Joomla!® (CMS) content-management platforms, using responsive, mobile-friendly templates, customized to suit your 'personality' and project requirements.
  • These platforms offer almost unlimited application add-ons, either as part of the original design requirements or added at a later date as required.
  • We use commercially available and open-source applications depending on your requirements, compatibility with other programs running on the site and cost effectiveness.
  • We can teach you to manage basic tasks on your site once it is launched, using an administration interface.

Payment Schedule

  • billing in Canadian Funds + GST/HST for Canadian residents
  • 30% of the project cost is required when work begins (non-refundable) with balance paid when site is launched
  • you own the site when completed - no additional fees, aside from hosting, your annual domain registration renewal fees & any site maintenance required going forward
