Initial website to be complete & presented to the client within two weeks of deposit received. (This timescale is dependant on the client providing acerockcola with required materials, such as logos, photos & text for the website pages and the client replying timely to any questions that may be asked during the build).


Any changes requested by the client will be completed as soon as possible. (This pattern will continue until the client is happy to launch the site & when no more reasonable changes are requested).

As you’re getting more than one service (Web Design, Logo Design & Email), I would take off the cost for the Email setup fee & the logo design.
Discount: £184


Total Cost: £1082.36


Websites costing £999 & under are payable with a 50% deposit then the remaining 50% upon completion.

Websites costing over £1000 can be paid for with a 40% deposit and then three monthly payments of 20% upon completion.



The only recurring fees after the website is complete and the initial outstanding balance is paid are:


  • £159 per year for the hosting of your website, domain renewal (if your domain is with acerockcola), daily off-site backups & for the recurring purchase of a year-long SSL certificate (first due 12 months after the website launch – this has a £299 value)
  • $99 (£71-ish) per year for Events Calendar Pro license (first due 12 months after the website launch)
  • £99.36 per year for 1x Google Workspace branded email account (first due 12 months after the website launch)


If you’re happy with the above quote please get in touch with acerockcola by replying to the email this link was in (or calling 01382 792787) & your web design contract will be sent out and once signed, then we can get started.


The above quote does not include copyrighting (creating a blurb for the ‘about us’ page & so on). If you wish for acerockcola to provide this service please get in touch now for a quote.


Additionally, if you feel that you’ll require regular website maintenance going forward (as opposed to just one-off changes a few times a year) then this is the time to get in touch to discuss it as factoring in a plan tailored to suit your site now will work out far cheaper in the long run when worked into your original quote & design approach. If you decide that you don’t require a maintenance plan then any work carried out in the future will be charged at £35 per hour strictly for labour. (Any new licenses or other third party payments for services would be charged at a separate cost).


Finally, remember that if you decide to leave acerockcola after the site is developed & live (for whatever reason), then you can do so at any time and that you alone will own all rights relating to the website & that you can take it wherever you want. If you want to move it to another web design company or even just host it yourself, then you have the absolute right to do so. Unlike other web design companies who only grant you a ‘license to use the website’ under certain conditions or those who will require payment to release the site to you, you own the site entirely, not acerockcola and you can take the completed site away from acerockcola, without any cost, at any time.


If there’s anything you’d like to talk about or query regarding the above quote, please don’t hesitate to get in contact to discuss it.
