Absolutely! Although our web design packages are fully managed for the first year, meaning you can send us your content to post to the website whenever you like, you may want to post it directly yourself. Posting your own content allows you to play with it to see what looks best on the site and is generally faster, since you can post it whenever you like rather than waiting 24-48 hours for us to complete the changes for you.
With all of our website designs, you don’t have to worry about messing anything up because you never have to touch the code yourself! You simply login to our WordPress admin panel, look under “Pages” for page content or “Posts” for news/blog articles, and start writing. Best of all, if you run into an issue, we’re standing by to take care of it for you. If you make a change you don’t like, we can easily revert the page or post to a previous version: we’ve got you covered!
Yes! Although security compliance prohibits you from taking payment through your own credit processor without our e-commerce add-on, you can direct people to pay through a third party gateway like PayPal, Stripe or 2Checkout. Simply create a ‘products’ page and copy and paste the PayPal (or other provider) payment buttons/code they provide you with onto the page. All set!
Our e-commerce add-on integrates considerably more smoothly with your site design and allows you to capture your products and client data in a self-maintained database. It also manages product stock, shipping calculations to multiple destinations with variable pricing, provincial tax rates, product variations, coupons, and tons more. If you’re looking for a professional website for selling your products, then we highly recommend purchasing our e-commerce add-on rather than building the product catalogue with WordPress pages yourself.
While we are researching the perfect design options for you, we request that you provide us with the content you would like on each page of your site. This often includes content (including images and video if available) for the following general pages:
Indeed you do. Self-service hosting is the industry we originally started in over ten years ago. This means you get access to the Websavers client centre for administering your account. What can you do with the client centre?

We’ve encountered way too many people who, after shelling out thousands of dollars for their website, became angry, frustrated or completely fed up with their service provider. Most of the time it’s been due to a lack of communication alongside a lack of performance — their provider either didn’t talk to them or they didn’t deliver on their promises (or both). Either the website never gets completed or it’s completed but isn’t available for updates at a reasonable price.
Since we were originally purely a web hosting provider, new clients were telling us about these kinds of experiences with other companies on a weekly basis. We decided to do something about it!
We strongly believe in long-term relationships with our customers, and we think there’s no better way to ensure a great relationship than by having a give-and-take situation. Rather than asking you to pay massive amounts up-front, we offer reasonable rates for high quality websites. You only pay 30% up-front and 70% once you’re satisfied with the final website.
Our design rates are so cheap because it benefits us to have you satisfied such that you continue hosting the website with us. This way we’re held responsible with keeping you happy, otherwise you have the option of simply canceling your hosting plan and halting payment, which doesn’t benefit us in the long-run.
With some of our website creations, we actually lose money or pull even at the outset, but we think you’ll place as much value in having us there for you as we do in having you as our customer. Isn’t that what business should be all about?
