Most websites need the following things

  • Domain name ( registrations are for 2 years)
  • Website hosting (annual cost)
  • Website software security maintenance (monthly or yearly cost if applicable)
  • email hosting (if applicable)
  • Website updates (this can be done by the client.  If A7Designs does the updates then this is done at an hourly rate)
  • Plugins and themes may require subscriptions
  • Shopping cart solutions such as Shopify and BigCommerce are subscription-based services
