Frequently Asked Questions
What are you guarantees?
We offer a 99% uptime guarantee from our host partners. If your site is down, we'll know about via Uptime Robot
Can I do monthly billing?
Sure, but we find most customers are more than happy with just one invoice every 6 months or 12 months.
Can you host our emails too?
We don't offer server based email hosting as spam and junk mail issues prevent us from offering a reliable and effective email solution. We do however, recommend email services such as Microsoft Office 365 and Google Workspace who can offer exceptional email solutions.
Please Note: this is different to our Reliable Email Sending Feature which is a function of sending transactional emails from the site to users
How can I pay you?
We'll send you an invoice for 6/12 months in advance. You can pay for this via internet banking or by credit card using the Pay Now link on the invoice.
Can you guarantee that we won't hacked?
No, we can't guarantee that. We offer best practise security recommendations and scanning, constant updates to the core CMS and it's plugins but we cannot guarantee that you're site will not be hacked. We do make it as hard as possible.
Certain things like strong passwords for admin users, or user-added rogue plugins are out of our control and therefore ability to offer any anti-hacking guarantee.

We can help. Go to our Contact page for Support details or submit a ticket. If the issue is related to our Managed Hosting, we'll fix it straight away. If it is site related, we can also help, but this work would be chargeable.
