W3 "Express" Websites

Express websites for startup and small businesses

We are now offering a new service to startup businesses or smaller companies requiring a fully functional, professionally designed website, but tailored to a smaller, flexible budget.

£125 then £25 per month (ex-vat)  


£500 then £12.50 per month (ex-vat)  

For that you get a website designed for your business, but in order to keep design and developments costs down we've limited the features and layouts (see page layout options below). We have included the most commonly required functionality as standard, and further functionality (such as e-commerce, newsletters etc.) can be added as an option. 

The websites are built using the W3 Web Manager™ platform, which provides a content management system to allow you to add and edit your content and keep your customers informed and up-to-date. W3 Web Manager™ is a full, commercial, content management system. It is not a basic blogging system, like Wordpress. This system far out-strips the functionality and flexibility of systems like Wordpress, and does not require constant updates or the use of 3rd-party plugins to provide basic extra fuctionality.

So, what's the deal?

We have two payment plans available:

Option 1. There is a one-off setup and design fee of £125 + vat then a monthly subscription* of £25 + vat, which includes your business web hosting, 10 email accounts, full content management facilities, SEO tools and support.

Option 2. There is a one-off setup and design fee of £500 + vat then a monthly hosting subscription* of £12.50 + vat, which includes your business web hosting, 10 email accounts, full content management facilities, SEO tools and support.

OR If you prefer, you can pay your on-going subscription annually and receive two months free.
