That's an easy question to answer! Might be a little long winded as we do many things so let's take a look at what we do that save our clients money everyday.
Since 2004 our hosting accounts started out at 2GB for $69.00/year and we're still at the same low price today in 2011. You have your choice of a cPanel server or our Rackspace servers. The cPanel is the most popular choice for many clients that choose to manage their own accounts, websites. Our Rackspace servers are more streamlined for basic functions of email creation and databases. Already have hosting.. no problem, we'll work with them directly for you to insure your new website from us will work on their servers. Not all hosting services are the same.
We don't like keeping all of our client accounts in one basket. We're currently maintaining services with two data centers with plans to expand into our third data center in 2011.
Data Center One
Data Center Two
San Antonio, Texas
Normally clients already have a domain or one in mind. Domains are cheaper these days as many companies give them away for free. But, it's all being paid somehow somewhere. So, we don't try and hide any charges. We started out in 2004 at $15.00 / year for a domain. But, over the years we've learned a lot about domains like keeping up with expiration dates! You'd think that would be a breeze. Try it a few times everyday from the year before keeping up with all those renewals, subscriptions etc.. For those that prefer to have us handle the domain needs we're now charging a flat fee of $20.00/year. You'll need to do your research and find a domain name that's available for you to purchase. I'd suggest using a website like DomainsBot - then just let us know what all choices you found. We'll be happy to consult with you to help make the best decision for your website address.
In the beginning, Snerdey.com was once a new website too, when you think of creating a website for a company it's easy. When it came time for us to promote our website promoting templates we looked at many options as most of us are coders, programmers. So, templates came to mind. Started surfing the net and found many options and decided to go with TemplateMonster. We liked it so much we joined their team of affiliates (over 160k of them!) Never thought it would turn into what it is today. The #1 Template Supplier on the net! We help you save money when purchasing a template with our 10% daily discount.
We actually do not charge to help you determine if a website template or our services are right for your project. This helps everyone involved save time and money. Even if you don't choose our services at least you'll have a better understanding of your options.
Don't have the extra time to spend searching the 1,000's of templates and options available to you on the website. Take a moment to let us know what you have in mind. We'll search our website for a few options to send you. You'll be able to click a link and view the designs. Keep in mind you're looking for the look and feel of the layout. Not so much the colors, images as those can be modified.
Sometimes clients get the idea that templates are supposed to be for anyone to be able to purchase and add to their website. They go purchase a website template and start spinning wheels right off the bat. Webdesign is not for everyone and not all templates are the same format or platform if you will. There are WordPress Themes, Full Website Kits, Flash 8, CMS Software view more templates here. There are over 16 types and dozens of categories. It can get rather confusing. We offer our consulting services at no charge for our Hosted Clients.
Sure, there are those special projects that require breaking out the scratch pad and creating a website from a blank page. Hopefully the client has an idea of what they'd like to have on the website including colors, how many pages and what all they want it to do. This is not the cheap route as you're asking for something unique. We'll do our best to make the price fair to everyone. Just because your asking for a custom website does not mean it has to be outragously expensive. Not everyone is a graphics editor, coding specialist or even know what FTP means. So, that's when we come into play. No, we're not going to ask you what you budget is for the project. We'll listen to you, give ideas and suggestions. You'll make the choice that fits best for you.
What's with the Freebies?
TemplateMonster is big on giving away freebies, free trials and all kinds of discounts. Currently with every template purchase you'll get 1 year free hosting for your new project! More bonuses included and are subject to change without notice.
