• R2000 for 1 Webpage
• R3000 for 3 Webpages
• R4000 for 5 Webpage
• R8000 for an E-Commerce
• R12000 for Property, Auto, Parts & Body Websites

Special Discounted price conditions
We always run special Discounted promotions in order to benefit you our clients with a low initial investment into the design of your website as well as fast track the growth of our recuring customer base on condition that you renew your Web services with us for a number of cycles depending on the percentage of Discount offered to you.
Whenever your payment includes a discount, your website Design & Domain comes with a condition that you must renew your Domain & Web hosting account a certain number of Annual cycles before File Access Privilege can be granted to you by way of cPanel Access.
We always ask all new clients if they plan to hire an external SEO agency for the purpose of Page ranking and advertising, this is because of the access privilege conditions and therefore advise clients to consider paying the full cost for Website Design so that they may have immediate access to cPanel on demand at any time.

Here are the Site File Access condition specifications
Full amount paid - You get File Access Privilege immediately.
1-19% Discount - Immediate Access Privilege.
20-50% Discount - Renew 1 cycle then get File Access Privilege or pay R500.
50-70% Discount - Renew 2 cycle then get File Access Privilege or pay R750.
70-90% Discount - Renew 3 cycle then get File Access Privilege or pay R1000.

In the event that you get a discount of more 20% or more and you need immediate access to the File manager & site plugins via cPanel for any reason like SEO, site file backup, transferer away, etc, you must pay the relevant amount in line with your discount percentage. As indicated above.

10. What is Site File Access?

Whenever a new client gets access to his website’s backend, they Get Role based access either as Site Owner, Site Manager, contributor, Author or Editor, all these roles come limited to specific Privileges and none of them has the File Access Privilege which is acquired via cPanel. cPanel access is particularly a sensitive privilege because that’s where you can get access to the theme design code of the website where it can be downloaded for use on another server and we are very hesitant to give that access especially when you have paid a discounted percentage of the Theme Design cost.

Site File Access Privilege
We can therefore make no gain if we charge you a small amount but then you immediately transfer away from us, this means we would be stuck in a cycle of creating themes for free without making profit, We lose profit whenever we offer Discounts and we therefore leverage that by putting a condition that you renew your services with us one or more annual cycles depending on the discounted percentage offered to you.

Closed Redemption lasts between 20 to 30 days and during redemption your domain can still be renewed but will not be accessible at all for Contact edits, Transfers or Emails & Site files until the Redemption Fee + Domain Renewal + Hosting Fee is paid, turnaround times are not guaranteed when removing a domain from Closed Redemption therefore you must be patient, however the best solution in advance here is to make sure your domain & services do not expire by making your renewal payment 15 to 30 days before expiry, please do not wait foe the expiry week as we will nob be able to help without aplying the appropriate fees.
