Website Package 1

Do it yourself

Sometimes you know enough to not pay for a service that you can do, but you need a little help, guidance and a few tips that will get you going. So lets unfold this package and what it will do for you:

  • Domain (Through us or your own provider)
  • Hosting (Through us or your own provider)
  • WordPress install & setup
  • Theme install (You choose, we assist)
  • Plugin installs
  • Contact form setup

Why WordPress?

Because we love it and its reputation speaks for itself.

Domain Costs?

Domains cost around R100 (.co.za) R200 (.com) per year if you register them yourself. We manage your domain for only R100 a year, in case you don’t need the fuss.

Do i need Hosting?

Domains and websites need a hosting account. If you not interested in this we offer managed hosting accounts so you need not worry.

Themes?

Think of themes as a look and style for your website that consists of a range of functions and styles that showcase your content.

What are plugins?

They are software components that add specific features to your website

What will Go2Websites help with

Domains (.co.za & .com)
Help purchasing, configuring and utilising your domain for what you need it to do. We use a very good provider that makes it easy to manage and gives you great support if you wish to have your own account. We can however handle this for you and eliminate this type of maintenance and you simply receive an annual invoice for the renewal.

Hosting
If you choose to have your own account we can guide you in what is needed and point you to practical examples of how to manage your hosting account. Essentially the main purpose of a hosting account is to store your database and website files. If you would rather not dive into this pond then we can provide this service with annual billing.

WordPress Install & Setup
Once you have decided on the above, we show you how everything is installed and configuration files are filled in, then proceed to getting your wordpress site ready for front end use. Due to the fast moving pace of the internet some basic plugins and features will be needed to improve your back-end experience. Should you not wish to know about all this, we wont take offence and this cost is included in the package price.

Theme install
The WordPress repository has thousands of free themes to choose from. Most of the free themes are great to get you started but paid themes from reputable design companies are always a better starting option. We can assist in the installation and go through how the theme controls the content of your website. Most of the times each theme is done differently and knowing where to change a specific piece of info on your site becomes tricky.. We help you understand where, what and how content is edited. If you have no need to know this then we recommend you choose our standard website package.

Plugin installs
Most paid themes come with helpful plugins built in so being able to use them efficiently is something you will have to learn from us. We also help you choose the plugins that you require for your website. Once you have mastered the use and management of all your plugins you are ready to start populating your website. As all plugins are essentially software they will require updating so if this is something you have no desire in doing, you can sign up for our website maintenance option that leaves you worry free and keeps you only on what is needed to be updated.

Contact form setup
As it  sounds, we help you configure a form plugin to allow viewers to contact you
