WEB DESIGN RATES
We use WordPress (now in its version 6.3) because it’s a great tool for creating and managing websites. WordPress was originally released as a blogging platform 20 years ago (back in 2003), and it has evolved into a multi-purpose content management system (CMS) with tens of thousands of themes and plugins available to implement. WordPress continues to grow and so does its user base. In fact, two out of every five websites on the internet use WordPress.

Domain Name. A domain name is an address on the internet. As you may know, every website has an IP address which is a unique number identifier, but with so many in existence, it’s much easier to remember a domain name. A domain name is a vital marketing tool for your business. Having a strong online presence is essential for businesses worldwide because it help your business grow by making it more visible. On average, a new domain name costs approximately $20 per year. However, domain renewal prices can be higher, ranging from $20 to $60 or more per year. At Local Digital Works we offer domain names for $24 per year.

OUR WEBSITE MAINTENANCE SERVICE INCLUDES THE FOLLOWING:
Secured Hosting Service. Is the most important part of a website maintenance, as it keeps your website up and running 24/7 for the entire world to see. Speaking of hosting, it’s important to acknowledge that the standards for the underlying technologies upon which WordPress operates (such as PHP and MySQL) are also subject to changes; this is another reason that you want to update the version of WordPress on your site. For example, if you are running WordPress using an old version of PHP or MySQL, or if they have not received the proper security patches, then your hosting environment may become incompatible with WordPress and your site may stop running. Or worse, it could continue to run but with a host of back-door security vulnerabilities that you may not even be aware of.
WordPress Maintenance. WordPress is used by 43.2 percent of all websites, and accounts for over 60 percent of all sites with a known content management platform. If you’re using WordPress as the content management platform for your website, it is imperative that you have a WordPress maintenance plan to support it. That’s why we perform the WordPress maintenance by updating it as new versions become available.
SEO Plugin. Since 2008, Yoast SEO has helped millions of websites worldwide to rank higher in search engines (Google, Bing & Yahoo.) At Local Digital Works, we install Yoast SEO to most of our web design offerings. Our plugin users range from the small bakery around the corner to some of the most popular sites on the planet.
Favicon. A favicon is a small 16×16 pixel icon that serves as branding (like a logo) for your website. Starter Websites (Starter-1 and Starter-3) DO NOT include a Favicon, you must purchase the Basic, Standard or Custom website to get a Favicon. Otherwise, there is a one-time fee of $47.
Text, Images, Photos and Videos. We can include all of these as part of your website content. However, text, images, photos and videos are the responsibility of the client and must be provided by the client to the webmaster.
Website Maintenance. During the initial 30 days of hosting your new website we will make updates/changes to your website at no additional charge. This gives you an opportunity to make corrections, changes and additions to your website after it’s been live. After the first month, there is a cost of $70/hour (1-hour minimum, then 30 minute increments) to make updates and/or changes to keep your website up-to-date and fresh.
SSL Certificate An SSL certificate is a digital certificate that authenticates the identity of a website and creates an encrypted connection between a website and a browser. An SSL certificate is sometimes called an “SSL/TLS certificate” or simply a “cert.” SSL certificates protect the identity of the remote connection and make online interactions private, ensuring that no one can read or modify content shared over the secure connection except the sender and recipient. An SSL certificate acts like a passport to verify the identity of the website owner, and like a key to keep user data secure via strong encryption.
Our “Premium” web design includes an SSL Certificate (for the 1st. year only) and after the first year the cost for the SSL Certificate is $70/year (including installation.)
GET A NEW WEBSITE OR IMPROVE YOUR EXISTING WEBSITE
A website will effectively promote your products and/or services so you can sell to more clients. Yet, having just a website is not enough. It needs to look professional, and easy to navigate to make a great first impression. Once you have your website up and running, don’t think that it ends there. A business website, no matter how well it is designed, will need to be redesigned to keep being a business-generating marketing tool. Your website’s life span maybe shorter than you think.
It is very important to understand that “redesign” or “modernize” doesn’t mean you need to change your content, branding or design elements. In fact, website modernization can just mean making functional updates to help your website work better and assist you in reaching your marketing goals.
