We believe your website is special, so we take care of each website individually. When you sign up, we will reach out to you and decide on the best way to start caring for your website.

When you first sign up, your card will be authorized, but not charged. Next, we will finish setting up your website. Once everything is working, then we will then charge your card. This way, you aren’t paying until your plan is fully active. Please allow 2-3 business days to get your account set up.

When you sign up for monthly payments, you will be charged on the same date every month, approximately every 30 days. For example, if you sign up on the 12th of March, your next payment will be on the 12th of April.

For yearly plans, your payment will be on your yearly anniversary.
