Site Registration


Primary site = Cost plus my time (Usually $15-25 total for a single site)


Pointer sites * = Same as primary less:

     20% when registered at the same time as the primary


* A pointer site has no content. Its sole function is to forward any visitor landing on it to the primary site automatically.  Site owners register pointer sites for a variety of purposes such as:

Protecting their "brand"

Re-directing visitors who use common mis-spellings of their site's name

Site registration fees are not refundable if the project is cancelled.

Quotations

 

Quotes specifying a “probable cost range” are available on request to prospective clients who can provide a detailed site plan. Such clients will not be invoiced for more than the maximum "probable cost" quoted for any work specified in the plan.  Extra work resulting from additions to, or variations from, the plan will be invoiced separately.  

A prospective client without such a site plan may either:

1) engage my services to help develop a plan at my standard hourly rate and discounts with the resulting plan being the property of the client whether or not they subsequently choose to engage my services to build the site.

~ or when it is mutually agreed that it is practical to do so ~

2) engage my services to proceed without a detailed site plan based on any existing notes, graphics, examples, templates and on-going discussions. This second option is most easily feasible when the site is based on of the multitude of a existing web site templates that can be downloaded from the internet either for free or for a moderate fee.

Invoicing

 

Once we have agreed to work together on your site project all the time I spend in advising, research, preparation, meetings, communications, planning and otherwise working toward the completion of the project will be invoiced.

Building a web site will generally be invoiced at the following stages though there may be variations depending on the nature of the project:

(1) A paid invoice will be issued on receipt of the appropriate deposit

(2) If, at the time a first draft of the site is posted on-line for inspection by the client, there is a balance owing over the amount deposited I may, at my own discretion, issue a second invoice.

Please note: The draft posted will contain the basic design elements (lay-out format, colour pallette, fonts, etc.) plus the initial pages and possibly some some sample or actual page content.

(3) If, at the time the completed site is posted publicly, as authorized by the client, there is a balance owing to WebEasy I may, at my own discretion, issue an invoice for it.  Alternatively I may include that balance in my first monthly invoice if the client will be using my on-going site maintenance services.

4) All adjustments, maintenance and upgrading work done on the site, subsequent to its public posting, will be invoiced monthly.

Please note all invoices are payable within 14 days

If a site building project, or an on-going site maintenance agreement, is cancelled by either party all un-paid services provided prior to that cancellation will be invoiced immediately.

10 min. for phone or email communications,
