websites that won’t break the bank.

websites that won’t break the bank.

We know building a website can be expensive. We also understand that not everyone needs a custom job. That’s what makes our SmartSite package such a great value for small businesses! You pay a reasonable monthly price and we take care of the rest.
Not a designer?  No problem!

Not a designer? No problem!

Thinking of going the DIY-route? There IS a better way! Drag-and-drop sites might look easy at first glance, but things can start to get tricky fast. When you purchase a SmartSite, you give us the content and we handle the rest -- so you can get back to running your business!
Embarrassed by your current site?

Frequently asked questions

Do you provide a domain name for my website?

If you don’t already own a domain name, we can help set up an account and purchase a domain for you. If you already have a domain name, we will take care of pointing it to our servers when your new website is ready to go live.

Will you host my new website?

Yes. Our 5 Stones plans cover the cost of website hosting on safe and reliable servers. We also ensure that your website is backed up on a regular basis as well.

I already pay for website hosting. Can I keep hosting my new site with that company?

We want to keep your new website safe, secure, and working properly.  For this reason, we will not install your new website on any other servers. However, once your new website is live on our server, you can cancel your current hosting plan if it doesn’t have any other websites or email connected to it.

Is logo design included?

No, you must provide us with your logo.  We can design a logo for you for an additional fee.

Do you provide email addresses?

Because of the increasing complexity and requirements of email, we do not offer email addresses at this time. We recommend using a dedicated email service such as Google’s GSuite or Microsoft Office 365 for your organization’s email addresses. However, we can help setup the necessary DNS records to make your email addresses work with any outside email service you choose.

How long will it take to build my website?

It all depends on which 5 Stones SmartSites plan you choose. Our general time frame is 4-6 weeks for BASIC websites and 8-10 weeks for PRO or DELUXE websites. All time frames depend on how complex the features are and your responsiveness.

What happens at the end of the 18 month agreement?

Once your 18 month agreement is complete, your monthly fee drops to $100 a month to cover the cost of hosting and UNLIMITED site edits.

Can I cancel or downgrade the agreement before the end of 18 months?

There’s no option to cancel or downgrade the agreement early. We distribute the cost of the initial website design and development (along with unlimited edits and backups) over 18 monthly payments.  Most of the design and development happens at the beginning of the agreement term. However, you can certainly pay off the total amount of the agreement anytime and we will provide our services for the rest of the 18 month contract.

Can I upgrade my monthly plan in the middle of my 18 month term?

Yes, but because we distribute all design and development for your particular plan over 18 months, you would be required to pay the difference in cost between your current plan and the upgraded plan for the months that have already passed, on top of the increased cost per month of the new plan.

Can I pay by check?

Sorry, but we do not accept check payments. All 5 Stones plans are set up on monthly auto pay from a valid debit or credit card. This is to avoid interruption in payment, and to cover the cost of development and ongoing updates.

How long does it take for you to make changes to my website?

After your website is live, basic updates and content revisions will be completed within 5 business days. All update requests are submitted via email. Adding new pages and additional features take longer depending on the complexity of the request.  If changes will take longer than 5 business days, we will let you know in advance when it should be completed.

Is there a limit to the amount of changes?

Nope!  You can request as many basic changes as you’d like. New feature requests are limited to the plan that you are on.

We’re ready to
work for you
