Yes, there are other costs related to building and maintaining your website that you will be personally responsible for when we begin our project together.
Domain Name – This is your web address and it is a requirement. They run on average about $12 per year depending on where you purchase them. This is a fee you will need to renew annually, and if you choose to wait till our planning process to purchase your hosting, can come free for the first year if you choose hosting through the hosting company I work with.
Hosting – I tell all my clients this is where your site "lives" online. Hosting can run between $60 to $120 per year and will need to be renewed annually. I do give my clients the option to get it themselves or to have me set it up for them. If you choose the hosting company I like to work with, your new domain is free.
Licensing – Depending on the needs of your website, there may be licensing requirements for themes or plugins. Some are a one-time purchase while others may require an annual renewal. I will discuss these with you if it’s determined you need licensing.
