  Maintenance Subscriptions

A maintenance subscription provides reduced hourly maintenance and new page rates, and scheduled link-checking.  Maintenance time purchased through subscription can be applied to any website changes or additions except new custom creatives and new programming.  Up to ½ of unused hours per month may be rolled over to the next month – not cumulative.

Active Web sites require frequent additions and changes of pages, graphics, code, and/or architecture.  Maintenance subscriptions are usually not recommended for relatively static web sites, such as brochure-type web sites.
Hours per month 3 mo. 6 mo. 12 mo.
2 hours (Light) $360.00
(savings:  $120
8 hours (Standard) $1440.00
(savings:  $480
16 hours (Premium) $2880.00

Subscriptions periods are 3 month, 6 month, or 12 month duration.  You may subscribe for any number of hours from 2 - 16 per month.  Subscription rates are 75% of normal rates.  Non-profit & WMBE discounts apply.

Schedule your maintenance for a specific day or days each month!  By scheduling, you will have our undivided attention during those days for the hours of your subscription.  This also helps you better plan updates and send them in batches, which in turn helps us organize our work schedule — and saves us time and saves you money.  And, you will better know when to expect your updates to appear on your Web site.
