The hub of your business is your website. Everything else should feed into it: list building, social media, lead capture, etc. Something this important deserves your attention and prioritization. We only build and support businesses using WordPress as their website platform. While you could use Squarespace, Wix, Weebly or one of those other online web building platforms, you wouldn't have the power, control or flexibility that WordPress can offer. Today, almost 50% of the top one million websites on the Internet are built using WordPress.

Domain Name Registration & Hosting
Intergalactic 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 one of our preferred hosting partners 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 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 Solutions 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)
Install and Configure WordPress - $197

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 us to install and configure the Classic Responsive "skin" included in your purchase of Thesis. We can point you to some excellent tutorials to get you started.
Installation, Configuration and Customized "Skin" - $697 and up
What if you don't want to do any of the above yourself? Intergalactic Web Solutions 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.
