Insider Website Solution details
The monthly payments for the Insider package is R399, R499, R 599 or R799 per month for 24 month. We have developed this package for our customers who can’t afford a large once off payment or who simply do not want to pay a large amount upfront and would prefer monthly instalments. We took the cost of a premium website valued at R7500 (R 399 options) and R 12 000 (for the R 599 option) and added all the cool extras such as monthly hosting, maintenance, unlimited updates, unlimited emails, email hosting and web-space as well as domain registration and a premium theme to the pot and split the cost up over a 2 year period. The site will remain the property of InsideMan Media until such time as it has been paid off. Should you wish to settle the amount and claim your website as your own a settlement amount will be calculated for you based on only what is left of the design. Please keep in mind that even if you settle and pay off your site, there will still be a hosting fee as would be for any provider hosting websites.
