Hosting & Maintenance
Hosting (also known as website hosting or Web Hosting) is the business of housing, serving, and maintaining files for one or more websites. In a sense, you rent space on a computer to hold your website. Web hosts are what make websites accessible over the Internet. This means they keep all the webpages of the hosted site on their server, they take care of all the setup and technical issues, and they have a very high-speed connection to the Internet.
All website projects will be added Kiss Hosting (unless requested otherwise). It is $35* monthly for hosting with Kiss Chanel Designs. This includes 1 free flyer per month, personal assistance, hands-on upgrades, routine maintenance, and weekly backups of your website.
$35 is due on the 1st of every month. Unpaid websites are suspended on the 2nd. If the payment is made after the 2nd, there is a $15 late fee applied + it’s $5 per day you’re late after that. If website owners do not pay after 29 days: On the 30th day your website will be terminated, and you will be in breach of contract.
Think of Hosting like a cellphone bill. You purchased the phone (your domain) now you need to pay Verizon (Kiss Chanel Designs) on a monthly basis to use their network to make calls, store data, access the internet & etc. Even if you do NOT use the phone, you are still entitled to pay the bill. If you do not pay on time: there’s a late fee added to your bill. After a certain amount of time, they interrupt your services. Eventually they will terminate you if you go too far without paying.
* All prices are subject to change without prior notice. If you are running an online store, or a website with a checkout feature to retrieve payments, the fee is $50, depending on your monthly needs.
If you want to be Hosted elsewhere, you need to Google “Website Hosting” and sign up for your own account. If you want your own Hosting plan after the website is already completed, the transfer fee is $125. Moving the website is just like moving from your home to another. You have to pay the movers for the labor to put your furniture in the new house and set it back up again, so this is a fee you cannot avoid (unless you stay with me).
