Website & Design
Boost your online presence
Grasshopper Hosting offers a complete design and hosting service; we do not author websites as a stand alone service. Every project has unique requirements. Once a commission is accepted by both sides terms and conditions form part of the agreement so that both parties are fully aware of what is expected. On launch an initial one month development period enables clients to identify any necessary modifications and edits (within the spirit of the contract) which can be implemented as part of the agreement. All sites are maintained as part of the contract.
Terms and conditions will be sent to you before any commitment is made by either party. Terms will include an outline of authoring, subscription and third party costs. Authoring costs are a one off fee for writing and publishing your website. Subscription costs represent a small monthly charge (invoiced every six months) to keep your website functioning as it should, to provide you with statistics and to update any pages as required. Subscription charges do not cover new pages or website re-design issues. Third party costs are those paid to service providers on your behalf. Typically these are domain fees or SSL certification.
