We also offer an annualized rate of $99 for one year, paid in advance, which is comes out to $8.25 a month.

Additional sites to the same client are just an additional $8 per month, or $75 annually.

In addition, Sacranet supports Google Sitemaps to inform Google's crawler about all your
pages and to help people discover more of your web pages.

Setup fee:

Domain setup and registration $20 (good for 1 year and $15.50 a year thereafter)
* dot-biz, dot-info and dot-us require a two-year minimum

Page Composition / Site Maintenance: $50/hr**

** Typically, it takes about 4 hours to put together the first page and about 2 hours for each additional page. Of course this can vary either way depending on the complexity of the page. This includes composing a page with all needed text, links and graphics including custom artwork, graphics editing, and image scanning.

Domain registration and monthly hosting fees are payable in advance, while page design and maintenance will be billed at the month's end.

At one time, I was able to make quick changes for clients without charge. However, as my workload increased, I found that in the course of a month, these began to add up. So I have made the move to charging in tenths, that is increments of 1/10 of an hour (.1 hour), with a 1-tenth minimum (.1 hour equals 6 minutes).

Although Sacranet does not support asp (active server pages) a Microsoft scripting language, we do offer the equivalent (although not compatible) PHP (hypertext preprocessor). PHP, when combined with a MySQL database, makes a powerful, interactive web site. Also we can provide Flash presentations. Simple Flash presentations can be done in-house using SWiSH Max; (sample) more complex Flash programming is done by a Sacranet associate. In addition, the ability to produce Flash Video is available at Sacranet. As time has progressed however, Flash is becoming less desirable since it is not supported by iOS systems. (iPad, iPod, etc). For that reason Sacranet is now working with HTML5, the upcoming standard, which utilizes .mp4 and .WebM formats for video.

While I am not a professional photographer, I do have digital photography equipment and I am able to take and edit pictures at the regular hourly rate.

It is your responsibility to ensure that you have permission to post all copyrighted and trademarked material. Of course we will put the notices, ® © where you need them.

It's interesting to note that the above prices are quite competitive. I recently received an e-mail from a web developer, here is part of what it said:

Our basic websites begin in the $1500 range. Ecommerce (shopping) sites begin in the $2400 range, and our long-term maintenance packages begins as low as $49.95/monthly, if pricing is your primary concern.

With the prices listed above, Sacranet can offer the same service in the $500 range, with the monthly hosting charge of just $10.
