There is a one time charge to design and set up your new website (or transfer your existing website). We will build a website to suit your individual needs. Once your website is designed and ready to go your only cost is the monthly hosting/maintenace fee and your domain name registration (see below).
Your options are:
If you already have an existing website that you would like hosted at Blues On Stage there is a one-time file transfer and set-up fee of $50-$150 (depending on the complexity). If there is any redesign work involved or additionial pages to be added please ask for a specific quote.
It is your responsibilty to supply the written content for the website in a text or Word document file, for example your bio, press, etc. (in a typed text or word document) and any logos, pictures, CDs, etc. to be used on the website.
There may be an additional charge for any complex logo design work, complex page design, and any bio, press or text writing or re-typing work (please ask about this up front).
Any future redesign work of your website is billed at $45 per hour or at a specific quoted price.
Web hosting is the charge to have your website available on the internet. Maintenance is the regular updates that I make to your website to keep the content current. This includes posting new calendar dates, adding new pictures to the photo gallery, adding new press that you supply, via email, etc.
Your options are:
One Page website hosting -- $15/mo (paid annually)
This corresponds to the One Page website (explained above) or simple multi page websites. This is a static website with no regular updates (or very minimal updates), other than minor changes or corrections to data.
Regular Hosting and Maintenance -- $300-600 per year ($25-$50/mo.)
This corresponds to the Full-sized website (explained above). Amount depends on the complexity of the website, and the amount and frequency of updates.
You Maintain your own website -- $180 per year ($15/mo.)
Using FTP you make your own changes and updates. I can make more complex changes for you at an additional charge of $45/hour. Included with this is a free banner ad placement and the other exposure benefits of being part of the Blues On Stage family.
Hosting & Maintenance charges are paid in advance annually. The first payment due when your website is designed and ready to be hosted.
Semi-annual or quarterly payment plans may be set up for a minor surcharge of 2%.
PayPal payment options available at a surcharge of 3%. (If you are paying less than annually and using PayPal the surcharge would be 5%.)
Your domain name is your personal address on the internet (how people find you).
You have two options here:
Use a registered personal domain name (such as: www.mnblues.com). Cost: $20 per year if I register and manage the renewal. Let me know if you have already have a registered domain name and what its current nameserver is.
