Notes:

  1. Client is responsible for content editing and maintenance on all pages and posts, including copy text, graphics and photographs, using the supplied Content Management System.
  2. Custom Theme is designed using time from the number of Creative Development hours alloted in each plan. Additional time may be purchased separately. Client must own copyrights of all media material used.
  3. We do not apply specific limits to the number of static pages allowed. Static pages within a website must be generally related to the subject matter of the website, and should be within reasonable levels, using common sense. For example, having 500 pages within a website showcasing a law office is unreasonable. Product pages, photo gallery pages and blog posts are excluded. The whole COMMbits website is not more than 100 static pages.
  4. Creative Development Services may include custom theme design, creative content development, template customization, etc. Additional time may be purchased separately.
  5. SEO-ready: All custom web site design plans allow the website administrator to enter meta-tags for title, description and keywords.
  6. Add Blogging to the Quick Shot for only $195.00 setup and an additional $12.95/mo.
  7. Advanced Content Tools include: A variety of boxes, buttons, tabbed-content, multiple text columns, and “learn more” collapsible boxes, as well as automated price lists.
  8. Advanced Blog Pack: Social Media and Social Networking integration for blog. Facebook “like” button, Twitter and more. See tabs for details.
  9. Broadcasting fees: $30/broadcast plus $1.25/100 msgs.
  10. Client must supply photos and tag lines for inclusion in each slide.
  11. Webmaster Services are over and above traditional technical support. Have a professional “eye” looking over your website.Technical management of all website assets. Apply patches to all components, modules and plug-ins. Site structure changes (i.e. adding new functions in sidebars or navigational bars), re-training and consultation on usage of any of the included functional components, core systems, modules, add-ons and plugins, extra backups for databases, etc. Fee is an estimate based on work load. Please consult with COMMbits for an estimate of your own case.
Content Management System (CMS): Our business web design packages come with Content Management Systems (CMS) that allow you to edit the content on your web pages yourself, with no HTML or other special technical knowledge required. Very easy to learn and use. If you require assistance writing the content on your web pages and/or choosing, editing and including graphics or stock photographs on your web pages please see our extra Professional Writing services or contact us.

Custom Theme: We will work with you to give your web site your own identity. Each plan includes a certain number of hours for professional design.Things like colors, lines, navigational menu styles, content placeholders, fonts, hyperlinks, graphical elements and more are customizable.

Domain Services We will register and administer/renew your domain name for free, on your behalf. You will always be the legal registrant of your domain name, we simply administer it for you to guard you from technicalities such as DNS, zone files, sub-domains and server IP addresses, etc. You can of course choose to administer your own domain name if you want to. Find your domain name using our free Domain Name Availability system.

Blogging: World-leading WordPress software fully integrated with your website, complete with your custom theme. Add multiple posts in multiple categories which you define using the Control Panel.

SEO-ready: Each page and post comes with placeholders for META tags and TITLE tags so that you can fill-in your information accordingly. See also our Search Engine Optimization programs.

Advanced Blog Pack: Social Media and Social Networking integration for blog. Facebook “like” button, separate for every page and post throughout your site. User-selectable. When visitors click on the Facebook “Like” button, system automatically posts your web page address into THEIR Facebook page. (You may exclude Facebook “like” display from a specific static page for example.) Integration with Twitter and other Social Networks. Advanced SEO features (i.e. deep intra-linking, meta-tags mass editing, page navigation, breadcrumbs, advanced caching for optimum performance.)

Advanced Content Tools: A set of tools that allows the addition of a variety of sleek boxes, buttons, tabs, “learn more” collapsible boxes, automated price lists and newspaper columns on any of your pages or blog posts.

News Management The ability to post news on your site which automatically show on a News table on the home page or any other page in your site. Define an article as “News” by a single click in the Author’s Control Panel and the system automatically posts your News in the correct hooks inside your web site.

Mailing List Management: Power your newsletter and expand your outreach strategy with our feature-rich Mailing List Management Add-on Component. Please follow link for details.

Automatic Site Backups: Backups are performed both nightly and weekly – so an archived version of your site is readily available.

If you require assistance during your e-business development strategy or if you want us to design your slides for you, please see our Custom Web site design services instead or contact us.

Webmaster Services: Over and above traditional technical support. Have a professional “eye” looking over your site. Technical management of all website assets. Apply patches to all components, modules and plug-ins. Site structure changes (i.e. adding new functions in sidebars or navigational bars), re-training and consultation on usage of any of the included functional components, core systems, modules, add-ons and plugins, extra backups for databases, etc.

Business Hosting: All our custom all-inclusive website design plans come with business web hosting and Premium Business Email off our dedicated servers. (Your website will NOT be hosted on our shared hosting plans.) The level of server resources allocated (RAM, server processes, CPU priority) varies with each plan. For example, the “Tiny-But-Strong” plan comes with twice server resources allocated compared to the “Quick Shot”. This translates to faster response times and the ability to adequately service more visitors simultaneously. The bottom line: Rest assured that your website will have enough resources to back it adequately. And when you traffic increases or your business needs change, upgrades are always possible! 3rd-party hosting not allowed for our custom plans.

Professional Creative Design: You will work with one of our professional creative designers who will capture the unique nature of your business in a custom web theme. Higher plans include more involvement so that our designer can spend more time you on color choices, design structures, assistance during stock photography selection and editing, web site object styling, custom sidebars, custom graphics and more. During the initial analysis, and if we feel that your requirements will involve more hours than what your plan includes, we will advise you accordingly. We can upgrade your project with extra billable hours if you require additional creative design or content editing.

Why is there a monthly fee? Our services are all-inclusive. Hosting, email accounts and technical support are included. Your monthly fee covers for the rental of high-end resources from our Premium Data Center, which “connect” your website and email accounts live on the Internet, 24/7, using a premium data network. We are using a billing model similar to the one used by traditional cable television companies in N. America: We pay a fixed monthly fee for basic television, then we pay extra for any additional channels we want to receive. Just as with the cable television model, the more resources your Internet presence consumes off our infrastructure the higher the monthly fee. This is why you pay extra for add-ons. If you are interested about a low, fixed monthly fee that has no constraints on add-ons and programs, please see our DIY Shared Hosting Plans instead.

Why is my monthly fee higher when I add more add-ons? This is because you account is using more resources off our business infrastructure. If you are interested about a low, fixed monthly fee that has no constraints on add-ons and programs, please see our DIY Shared Hosting Plans instead.

Can I design my site with COMMbits but host elsewhere? We consider web design and web hosting part of the same system. By removing one of these components (web hosting), our business packages are simply not possible any more. We cannot service and support your website while it is hosted somewhere else for a variety of very important reasons, which seriously jeopardize our ability to offer you a complete business solution. Please see the post on 3rd-party web hosting for details.

What will be my involvement and responsibilities during the design phase and after launch? We take our work very seriously – on our team we all feel we “own” the project, until we deliver it to you. However, your input during the creative design phase is of paramount importance. We are trying to portray YOUR on-line culture, and the unique characteristics of YOUR business. Therefore, your close co-operation during the creative design phase is critical. You will be able to follow-through the various steps of development using the Internet, from the comfort of your office.

Content editing is ultimately your responsibility. Please think of the carpenter/bookshelf-owner analogy for a moment: The carpenter is responsible to build the bookshelf but the owner is the one to place the books onto the finished bookshelf and maintain them thereafter. Your website is equipped with a Content Management System, that allows you to add content on your own, without any technical knowledge required. Nevertheless, if you require assistance writing, designing and placing content on your web pages, we can help! You may either add additional hours of professional services on your project, or see our custom website design projects instead.

Do I get to know how often is my site visited? Yes! Our all-inclusive business website development plans come with comprehensive traffic statistics currently based on the Urchin Analytics System. Reports include most frequently visited pages, visit duration, bounce rates, referrers, search keywords, visit path, traffic by time, visitors by country, etc.

Do you cover domain name registration? Of course! Our business website design programs are all-inclusive and they also include full domain name services. Tell us which domain you wish to register, or find out if your desired domain name is available using our free and automated Domain Lookup service and we will register it for you. All fees, including domain renewal for one domain name, are already included in your package.

How do I choose a hosting plan? Our business website design programs are all-inclusive. An appropriate business web hosting plan is already included in your package. Your business eMail needs are also covered. (If you are looking for Enterprise eMail features please see our hosted MS Exchange solutions.) We choose the right hosting plan that will accommodate the package you have chosen. We have a large arsenal of servers to choose from, for a variety of required configurations and specifications, therefore upgrading is never an issue either.

Do I get a Control Panel to edit my site? Yes. You get the standard WordPress content editor. Depending on your package you will have access to less or more features. You will have access to features that – even if misused – cannot jeopardize the normal operation of your website and other websites on our business network.

How do I add eCommerce? We have a variety of eCommerce Plans depending on what exactly you are looking for. Please see our Professional e-Commerce website Design section for details.

Can I keep my Domain Name when I change hosting providers? Yes. Even if you purchased your domain name from somewhere else we will help you with all required details during the development of your project.

WE DO NOT EXPERIMENT. WE SIMPLY DELIVER!
