Domain Name Registration & Hosting

6_starrhost_300x250Intergalactic Web Designers can assist you in the registration of your domain name and the acquisition of web hosting. Domain registration is an annual fee paid to a third-party provider. The fee is usually under $20 per year but depends upon the specific TDL  (top level domain, i.e., .com, .net., .info, .biz, etc.) selected. Web hosting services can be provided by our preferred hosting partner or by your existing hosting company. The fee ranges from a few dollars per month and up depending upon level of features and provider. Hosting providers usually offer discounts on annual payment vs. month-to-month. Please note that although we can set up the accounts for you, any updates or management of those services will be up to you. We are not a website hosting company and so do not offer or include technical support for website hosting, email or other services relating to website hosting.

Migrate WordPress.com Website – $197 and up

If your small business website is currently hosted on WordPress.com, you may need to re-think that decision. WordPress.com provides a great Pros vs. Cons description of using their site as opposed to self-hosting WordPress on your own server. Besides the inability to fully customize your WordPress.com blog, you also are limited in the kind of business activity and linking you can do. If you are involved in any kind of network marketing or affiliate marketing, for example, you account could be suspended. Intergalactic Web Designers can assist you with migrating your website from WordPress.com to your own self-hosted server. Contact us today to get started. Cost is $197 for most sites but we will need to analyze your site before we agree on a firm price. If you are on another platform (Squarespace, Wix, Weebly, Blogger, etc., we can also migrate your site to WordPress. Cost will vary between platforms)

Thesis 2.1

Installation and Configuration – $297

If you desire full control over your site’s design but don’t want to have to learn how to code (PHP, HTML, CSS, etc.) then DIYThemes.com‘s Thesis 2.x might be for you. With Thesis you can create as many templates as you need for your site without having to learn a single line of PHP programming. It doesn’t hurt to know basic HTML or CSS to get really fancy but they truly are not necessary for you to be an expert to get the results that you want. Purchase your Thesis license from the affiliate banner below and then contact IWD to install and configure the Classic Responsive “skin” included in your purchase of Thesis. IWD can point you to some excellent tutorials to get you started.
Thesis Theme for WordPress: Options Galore and a Helpful Support Community

Installation, Configuration and Customized “Skin” – $697 and up

What if you don’t want to do any of the above yourself? IWD can do it for you. Let us know all the details of your dream website and we will customize a skin that will be yours alone. You will still need to purchase a Thesis license using the banner above and then complete and send the Brand & Design Questionnaire so we can get you a firm price.
