“Blimey, Danny, is it really going to cost me £65 a month for you to do my website? That sounds like a lot of money.”
Actually, that’s not an unusual reaction from potential clients when they’re told of our fixed rate pricing.
Other customers are less combative on the subject of budgets. But you can just tell from the look on their faces that they’re struggling to work out where all that cash goes!
Now, before you start thinking we must have a very short client list, with customers running away from us at a speed that would give Usain Bolt a run for his money, then you would be completely wrong. In fact, nothing could be further from the truth. So hear us out before you abandon ship!
The first thing to point out is this. We will never quote you astronomical figures for giving you a respectable presence on the internet.
In fact, we won’t charge you a single penny upfront for creating a stylish, practical and eye-catching website. No, sir!
What you get for your £65 per month is a bespoke site of up to 10 pages – individually designed and developed in-house (none of that identikit, off-the-shelf stuff), together with unlimited updates and amendments, as well as basic search engine optimisation for title and description tags .
All of our tailored made, eye-catching websites are tried and tested on the most common and up to date platforms, such as Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox & Safari.
Oh, and we’ll also include hosting and three active email addresses.
Here’s a snapshot of what £65 actually gets you:
All this for just £780 per year – broken down into 12 easy monthly instalments.
That’s about the same cost as two quarter page adverts in a local weekly newspaper with a very limited shelf life. Whereas, your £780 spend with us provides you with 24/7 exposure to your target audience.
It would be remiss of us to ignore the benefits of social media – and we can make sure that any presence you have on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram or other platforms will all neatly interface with your website.
As an overall package, we think this all adds up to a great deal. From a baseline £65 a month, you can bolt on as much or as little as you like from our additional specialist, upgraded, value-add services.
You may be quoted more elsewhere, you may be quoted less. But we’d stake our reputation on the level of service, expertise and support you’ll find with us.
OK, you say, we can now see where you’re coming from. But where will I appear on Google?
The honest answer is that it would be unrealistic to give a cast iron guarantee that you’ll achieve first page on Google all the time. However, that doesn’t mean to say you won’t be top of the hit parade at least some of the time.
Of course, there are things that you can do – or we can do for you – to help improve your SEO rankings. Such as:
We take our responsibilities very seriously and work hard to build long term relationships with all our clients – to provide the presence needed to help skyrocket your profit and exposure on the world wide web.
As part of your website rental we will both design and develop a
website with up to and including 10 content pages. This will include a

At Fountain Digital Ltd we are able to boast a rock-solid, stable,
ultra-fast, minimum downtime hosting solution for your website or
websites. We are confident that with us, your website will remain
operating at it’s peak performance every day of the year for the
remainder of it’s life.
Our servers are at the cutting edge of the technology as we don’t believe in building better websites only to see them stumble once live due to a poor hosting solution.
This is essential for any website because if your website were to be
hacked or the hosting compromised, your website and all it's data could
well be lost.
With a regimented back up routine Fountain Digital gives you peace of mind knowing that should the unthinkable occur then we can have your website restored and running in as short a time as possible, as if nothing had ever happened.
We know from bitter experience how concerted and focused hacking has become in recent years with groups now set up wholly just to bring about the demise of your website. We can't stop them doing what they are doing but we can assure you that if anyone does try to hack into your website, we are on hand to take immediate action and, if necessary, restore the site from a back-up.
You may have heard of the phrase bolt ons before, such as O2's services that adds extra minutes or text messages to your monthly phone contract. Fountain Digital's website bolt ons work in a similar way. You may need to have added functionality on your website that goes beyond the standard static content, such as Social Media integration, or the ability to update certain areas of the website yourself, for example a blog. We can provide a host of powerful bolt ons that can empower your website with this additional functionality.

websites need specialist content and additional pages over and above
our standard 10 page site rental. We understand that. That’s why we will
discuss with you from the outset your exact requirements and tailor a
quotation based on your precise needs.
Some examples of features that are not covered in our standard rental price are databases, e-commerce shops and mailing solutions.
Any additional pages over the standard 10 will be charged at £1.50 + VAT extra per month (up to and including 20 pages). If your site is very large and exceeds 20 pages we will offer a discounted rate on those pages and will provide a bespoke quote.
