Frequently Asked Questions

Questions about Website Maintenance? Our FAQs provide answers to the most common queries. You can also contact our expert support team at any time.

What Does Each Hour Get Me?

We bill by the hour (in 20 min blocks), a minimum of 1 hour. We log everything in an hour log and bill at the end of the month. We also strictly enforce that all updates under 3 hours require 2 days for completion and updates over 3 hours up to 10 days.

In general, we don't conduct updates sent that day and charge extra for next day rush updates. This serves all our customers well and ensures that those who submit update requests in advance aren't pushed to the back of the queue by last-minute updates from other customers. It pays to be prepared. We endeavour to provide the best service possible for all of our customers and will update your requests as quickly as possible.

This is important to ensure that 'Client's don't wait to send updates the day before they need them, therefore interrupting the design schedule of existing projects. The majority of our 'Client's sites are on CMS systems, so they are able to perform the updates themselves, this is more for the 'Client's who find it difficult or aren't interested or too busy and need something more than a regular update.
