Website design is billed out at $80/hr for most work. You only pay for design time and any changes you require us to make. Most of the content on your website will be editable by you through edit links directly on your site, available to anyone you designate as an admin. You can even upload and manage photos, videos, and documents all by yourself. We use a custom-built content-managment interface. You should only need us if you ever want to redo the look of the site or add new sections, etc. Even the menu or navigation tab-bar on your site will be editable by you, unless you choose to have an image-based menu.
Most sites for small businesses, events, or merchants can be done inexpensively. They do not require custom programming. We have an artist design multiple mock-up samples page-templates that you choose from and recommend changes to. That template is then used to generate all the pages of your site, with your content (which you are responsible for, though we can provide editing and writing services).
Development is a one-time cost. Once your site is designed, you only pay us recurring fees for hosting; you are responsible for domain name renewals. If you already have a website design and just need hosting, there will be no development fee.

Domain Name Registration
Domain names can not be bought, only rented by the year. If you ever loose your lock on it and let it expire, anyone else can start leasing it instead - many domains are lost this way!
You are responsible for purchasing and yearly renewing of your domain name registration, though we will help you select a domain name and walk you through the purchase if you need. You can purchase from any domain name registrar, but we recommend Register.com @ $35/year. There are slightly cheaper registrars, but customer-service other aspects such as security are not as good. Register.com answers their phone 24/7...
